Ahhh, I just got back from some much needed family time boating, cooking and enjoying the sunny weather at the lake. It was the first time in a long LONG time I completely disconnected from all social media, blog roll, email and only checking my phone for calls a few... Continue reading

I've decided that moving should be like delivering bad news: as quick as possible, all at once, and don’t forget anything. We've taken a different and slower approach. We have packed everything we owned in my Prius and made multiple trips for the past three weekends. I should seriously consider... Continue reading

Talk about a busy summer! Time is flying by - so much so that I completely forgot that we are having a little goodbye dinner tonight for some friends of ours who are moving to Minneapolis this weekend. We have them over to dinner all the time. As a last... Continue reading

It doesn't get much more exciting than moving into your first home. I haven't lived in the same space for more than two years since I was in high school, so I'm ready to snuggle in to a home and stay put for more than a few years. We are... Continue reading

Italy did not fail to be an inspirational and unforgettable vacation. Is to too dramatic to say that Italy changed my life? Probably a little dramatic. Here’s a little bit about the over all experience we had. I have much more to write about the trip, but let me start... Continue reading

This week I am cramming for finals which calls for power foods. Each morning I'm starting with green juice and today I made some kale chips to bring to campus for a snack while I study. It's a very simple and only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish,... Continue reading

Who is your audience? How old are they? Where do they live? When are they online? What is your voice? Why is it unique and different? I’m always considering these questions when I think about the format and content of my blog. Blogging is such a saturated market, which I... Continue reading
