Ohio is for Lovers (of Ohio)

I’m coming up on four years living in Columbus, FIVE in Ohio… (where does the time go?!), and if you know me at all, you know I’ve spent a lot of time in these four years complaining about living in Columbus. Some of my complaints are justified. The winters are long, and yes, they are […]

Chasing the Dream

Happy Independence Day, friends! We’ve enjoyed a too hot and then too rainy day off, but a day off nonetheless. You’ll find me sitting on the couch for the rest of the evening wishing that every Wednesday was a day off, because it’s a great way to break up the week!  I’ve been thinking a […]

Almost Heaven

Another year, another birthday for my beautiful home state! I look forward to this day every year, because West Virginia takes up a huge part of my heart, and I love seeing people celebrate her.  Since I got all sappy last year, I thought I’d keep it short and sweet this year and hit you […]

Dark Days

Just as things were getting all warm, sunny, and bright, we got a brutal dose of reality this week. We lost two wonderful visionaries, two people that I’ve looked up to, two lives I’ve envied. Their lives are no more or less important than a stranger I pass on the sidewalk, just much more public. […]

Dairy Free, New Me

Long time, no blog. I wanted to fill you guys in a little bit. For as long as I can remember, and recently significantly worse, my stomach and I have gone through phases where we just don’t get along at all. After going through my second round of the flu back in March, I realized […]

29 Years

Hi! I hope you guys had a great weekend! I turned 29 today, so I’ve spent a good portion of this week reflecting on 28 years of life, (that is so crazy to type out) and holy crap have I got some stories, haha. I’m going to keep it pretty simple on this dreary Wednesday, […]

Out Living

Hey guys! It’s been a minute, and I apologize. Truth be told, after the horrific events in Florida on Valentine’s Day, I felt like feigning positivity last weekend would’ve been just that, an act. I’m not going to get too political here, but I’ll just quickly say that I am so proud of those kids. […]

Resolutions, Revamped

Hi friends, long time, no blog. When I sat down and wrote the annual Winter Blues post, feeling my usual January self, I decided that maybe I should do something about it. Looking back at my resolutions, they are some combination of too vague, and too hopeful. I don’t mean that in a negative way! […]

Winter Blues, Volume 3

There. Is. No. Cure. Every year, under the falsely optimistic pretenses that something will be different, I become fully enveloped by the winter blues. In the couple of weeks leading up to the ever-important January 1st, while everything is still all sparkly and filled with the magic that is Christmas, I set all these goals […]
