One thing that I love about returning home from a vacation is that little reminder that sticks with you to get out and play. Literally, I mean play. Get out of the house, let go, bliss out, do something that makes you feel good, laugh, and look like an idiot.
Last week I got to spend some much needed quality time with my parents, brother, and husband in the cutest cabin tucked away off a winding mountain road in Black Mountain, North Carolina. My husband and I made our first trip to Asheville a couple years back and have been back two times since. We love it there so much that we’re planning a big move next year! But, until then I’ll just daydream about the gorgeous views, delicious food, and the copious amount of craft beers I tried! I know you all were probably looking to see what I wore all week, but sometimes a gal just has to live in the moment. Continue reading “The Dot Goes to Asheville!”
I grew up in a pretty small, sleepy town. I often joked there were more cows than people and I couldn’t wait to leave. I’d walk to the local shopping plaza to buy fried chicken, corn bread, and peach rings. I stayed out late with friends roaming around town. I spent my free time taking dance classes, getting tattoos, and working at the local Burger King. Again, I couldn’t wait to leave. Continue reading “Where I Come From”
So, life can be a bit of a jokester sometimes. I am naturally a very bubbly, social, and optimistic person, but I’ve got a little secret. I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder. I know what you may be thinkin’ but nope, I am not amazingly organized (I wish) and you won’t find a clean freak here (sorry, honey)! Instead, I often find myself struggling intrusive thoughts that send me into a vicious cycle of worry, fear, and doubt (ya know, if I leave the Christmas lights on when we’re not home the house WILL burn down). That’s a pretty lame joke, life. Continue reading “I’m a Little Uncool and I’m a Little Uncouth”
This weekend my gal pal and blogger friend, Jess, explored Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood for a chilly afternoon of shopping local. I love living in a city that has so many incredible little boutiques, thrift and consignment shops; so to say I was excited to finally be visiting No. 14 Boutique was a major understatement. Continue reading “Lovely in Local: No. 14 Boutique”
Let me start this off by saying I have always been one to live colorfully (well, except for that year or so in high school when I thought colors were the worst).
During my 8th grade home economics class I picked up pretty quickly on how to sew. I made pillows, aprons, little stuffed animals, and this one pair of pants. Continue reading “Rainbow Reincarnation”
Some of you may have come across Life on a Dot not knowing a single thing about me, while some of you know that I am a little hard of hearing due to blasting My Heart Will Go On at full volume when I was 10. However you came to be here, I am so happy to have you! This week I reached out to my friends, family and coworkers to ask me anything. I love how the questions reflect their personalities, as well as, show the differences in our relationships. This post will be a little longer than most, but I hope this gives you a little glimpse into my little dot!

Hi, I’m Kim. It’s nice to meet you! Starting this blog has been dancing around in my head for a long time and I am so excited to finally be showing you my moves (which I hope are better than my actual dance moves).
