why sunday morning?

It is representative of two very important aspects of my life. First, Sunday Morning by Maroon Five is arguably the best song ever produced. It can get in touch with your emotions, or it can hype you up before an interview. It's dreamlike lyrics and jazzy undertones are timeless; I have no doubt this song will be featured in my wedding and sung to my children. Second, I eat blueberry chocolate chip pancakes on this weekly holiday. Easy like Sunday morning. 


let me introduce myself!

Hello! Welcome to my humble corner of the big wide web where I share just about anything going on in my mind. You'll find inspirational insights, vulnerable truths, and how I personally approach this pretty little thing called life. 

My name is Caroline Hughes, and I am a 19-year-old student at Texas Christian University originally from a suburb outside Chicago. Despite my love for all things Texas, the windy city will always hold a special place in my heart. I am studying Strategic Communications, focusing on advertising, digital media, feature writing, and creative strategy, with a minor in General Business. I am a member of the Texas Delta Chapter of Pi Beta Phi. Shoutout angels :)

Some of my favorite things: any and all vegan desserts, football games, Springsteen by Eric Church, yellow labs, almond butter acai bowls, HIIT workouts, Friday Night Lights, Good Will Hunting, and driving at night in July heat.
