The 10 Question Meme

March 25, 2015

It’s no secret that I love listening to podcasts. I currently subscribe to 22 podcasts, and I’ve listed a few of my favorites in this post. I should probably write another version because I’ve added a ton of new podcasts to my feed since I wrote that post, many of which I love more than […]

Do What You Love

March 23, 2015

Since the beginning of January, I’ve been training (half-heartedly, let’s be honest) to run a 5k at the end of March (this upcoming Saturday!) It really was a spur-of-the-moment decision to sign up for this race because I’ve been steadfast in my belief that running is not for me. At the time I signed up, […]

Book Review: An Uncomplicated Life by Paul Daugherty

March 19, 2015

It’s something no parent ever wants to hear: your child has Down syndrome. But that’s exactly what happened just a day after Paul Daugherty’s daughter, Jillian, was born. It was something he and his wife worried about. After all, Paul’s wife had gotten pregnant with her when she was in her mid 30s, so the […]

A Weekend in Pictures

March 17, 2015

Happy Tuesday and Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! I have donned my green (though I feel like my eyes being green should count for something), and I am hoping not to get pinched today. I had a super wonderful weekend and I thought it would be the perfect way to bring back my fun “Weekend […]

Three Things Thursday (v. 2)

March 12, 2015

As I mentioned on Tuesday, I’m in the process of re-categorizing and re-tagging my blog posts. My categories and tagging methods were a bit of a mess. But out of this process I’ve stumbled upon some fun blog posts I’ve done in the past that I want to revisit. They’re the perfect type of posts […]

Currently in March

March 10, 2015

Feeling… incredibly sore. On Saturday morning, I did a 10-minute leg workout and it. kicked. my. butt. My quads and hamstrings have been so sore since that workout! DOMS at its finest. I haven’t felt this kind of sore from exercise in a really long time so, as much as it hurts, it also feels really […]

Five For Friday (v. 40)

March 6, 2015

1) Monday was Dutch’s birthday! He turned 13 – can you even believe that? He definitely doesn’t look or act his age. I know dachshunds can live for a long time (usually 15 or 16 years!), so I’m saying all the prayers that he’s one of the lucky ones who lives a long, long life. For […]

What I Read // February

March 4, 2015

Book club selection: The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin (5 stars) This book was so, so lovely. I went into it with high expectations, knowing that most everyone who had read the book had loved it. And all my expectations were met! I loved A.J., even at his grumpiest. He was ornery yet […]

Monthly Goals // March

March 2, 2015

And suddenly it’s March! February was a wonderfully exciting month. I went through a breakup that only made me feel happiness and relief, and this steadfast assuredness that singleness is right where I want to be. I became an aunt for the second time, and my brand-new nephew is squishy and adorable. And I celebrated Valentine’s […]

Five for Friday (v. 39)

February 27, 2015

1) I received my tax return last weekend! Wahoo! I used it to pay off my balance for the cruise I’m taking in May with my mom, as well putting a huge chunk toward my credit card. It pains me to admit that after a trip to Savannah and St. Augustine, as well as the Christmas […]
