I moved!

ALEXAJBURRELL.COM After years of juggling and online portfolio and a blog, I figured it was about time to merge the two (and give my portfolio a serious face lift while I was at it). It’s still a little bit of a work in progress, but it’s getting there! I moved over all my old blog […]

Coming Home

There’s nothing in the world quite like coming back to Chapel Hill. Walking through campus feels so comfortable and familiar — it’s hard to believe I ever left. Between Phi Mu’s 50th Anniversary, football and basketball games, mini birthday celebrations, and reconnecting with old friends, I would have say that this weekend was one of the […]

Yee Haw!

I know Tuesday is a little late for “what I did this weekend”, but I just got back yesterday morning so there. I spent the weekend visiting my family in Dallas! I had only been to Texas once before (not a fan) but since my family moved there in September, I’m sure I will be […]

In order to make sure my boyfriend on the other side of the world got a little taste of Christmas, it was necessary. I was actually […]

Pretty much if you can’t run from pumpkin spice, embrace it right? My friends and I decided to have a Fall/Pumpkin Party earlier this […]

I didn’t go to CSU….

But I did go to CSU Homecoming! I think it’s pretty safe to say that I spent enough time in Fort Collins as an undergrad that it can be my second home. Tailgating, a great game, a night out in Old Town and of course brunch at Silver Grill, thanks for another great weekend FoCo! […]
