    Blogmas Day 14: Navigating Holiday Stress

    We all love Christmas, right? Wrong. Take some time this year to ask your family, friends, or coworkers how they feel about the holidays, and you might be surprised to find out that many of them are pretty, “Bah, humbug!” It always kind of kills my Christmas spirit a little to hear just how unamused […]

    Blogmas Day 8: I’m On The Naughty List

    Warning: mental health post. Disclaimer: kind of raw. Spoiler alert: I’m working on me. Guys. Self reflection is tough. Especially when you can see in yourself some things you don’t like. Let me explain. The past year has been tough, plain and simple. Yes, it could always be worse. Yes, I am very, very blessed. […]

    13 Days of BlogOweeen Day 2: Fall Fun in WV

    In today’s episode of 13 days of Halloween, I’m talking some fun fall activities in my original neck of the woods! As you know, I’m a born and raised West Virginian, transplanted to Columbus, so I’m talking all the good fall stuff in WV today! First up, an absolute must, the Ceredo Kenova Pumpkin House! […]

    We bought a house, should you?

    Hello from the other side. Do you remember me? It’s been a long time, but I promise I have a good excuse. Since you last heard from me, we have bought AND sold a home, and even lived somewhere else for a week in the weird interim where things can’t get messy and all signs […]

    Quarterly Resolution Follow-Up 2

    What’s up? I’m back from the future! JK, I’m back from Texas and Florida and home, and I’m desperately trying to get back into my normal routine. If you saw my instagram stories yesterday, you’ll know that I’ve been slacking on basically everything because house hunting in the hottest housing market in America is no joke […]

  • At Home Workouts

    At Home Workouts

    Happy Easter Sunday! Today, I want to talk about working out at home. Lots of people don’t believe that working out at home can deliver the same results as working out at a gym, but I wanted to test this theory. Listen, I get it, at home fitness implies various space and equipment constraints, but […]

  • Spring Bucket List

    Spring Bucket List

    Hey guys! Today was a lovely reminder that warmer weather is upon us and winter is on its way out. Slowly breaking out of my winter slump, I’m feeling really excited for all spring has to offer, and like most things I look forward to, I’m bucket listing the season! Complete Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix. I’ve […]

  • Seasonally Me

    Seasonally Me

    I’m here again with another mental health post that I hope is relatable to some of you. I don’t know what it is about the seasons changing that renders me unable to function as usual, but here we are. And here I am. The past two weeks have been particularly difficult and the part that’s […]

  • Quarterly Resolution Follow-Up

    Quarterly Resolution Follow-Up

    I’ve really dropped the blogging ball today, but not beating myself up about it, because this is my birthday weekend after all. We just went to see Captain Marvel with friends, and it was super good, but I also did take a small nap during it (#tiredpeopleprobs), so I need to fill in the gaps before […]

  • My 30 Under 30 Unintentional Bucket List

    My 30 Under 30 Unintentional Bucket List

    Welp, we’re here. Today is my 30th birthday. I’ve been thinking hard about what I wanted today’s post to be like and then this idea hit me. Often when people have bucket lists, they contain various thrill seeking, majorly risky, big ideas. I’ve never had a bucket list like that. I’m not into that kind […]
