Summer Slump

Hi! I’ve been MIA for a month and it has flown by! We were guests at a wedding out of town, had a fun trip to the zoo, cared for friend’s cute cats all over town, and had about a million car problems. Summer has been sweltering chaos, both good (family, friends, Taylor Swift, Hanson, […]

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 […]

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! […]

New Year, 365 Opportunities…

What up party people? I brought in the new year in true Leigh Ann fashion last night: laying on my dad’s couch, binge watching romcoms, happy as a clam. New year, new me? Nope. Still hate New Year’s Eve. Still hate water. Still hate exercising. Still love Oreos, cats, and New Girl. Yeah, I’ve had […]

Blogmas Day 24: What Christmas Means to Me

We’ve made it. 24 days of Blogmas. 24 days of holiday fun and travel and shenanigans. Pulling out all the Christmas stops has really made me think a lot about what this all means to me. Tradition is something I don’t have just yet for Christmas. A lot has changed over the years. We’ve lived […]
