Blogmas Day 11: All I Want for Christmas, by guest blogger Kayla Redig

All I Want for Christmas: is for young adults to feel empowered when it comes to their health. Hey there, Kayla here. Friend and fan of Leigh Ann’s, with a less serious TV addiction (Now streaming: House). Another fun fact about me is that I was diagnosed with breast cancer a month before my 25th […]

Blogmas Day 5: Giving Season

The holidays are all about giving. Don’t let that generous spirit end with your friends and family, extend it to those in need. And giving isn’t all about money; your time is incredibly impactful too! I’ve done some research (you should too!!), and found some really great causes to donate to this holiday  season, in […]

Thankful

I’m kind of a negative person. Everyone who knows me personally reading this said in unison, “Ya think?”  Thanksgiving has never been crazy exciting for me, a tiny blip on the yearly map between my two favorite holidays. The food is weird, ya know?  But, much like so many things in life, I’ve grown to […]

13 Days of BlogOween: Day 8, October Favorites

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve done a favorites post! Interestingly, they are my favorite to post!

Autumn Bucket List

Summer. Is. Over. And pardon me to all the eye rollers out there, but loving fall is not a new thing. I’ve always only liked summer slightly more than winter, which I hate. Summer is just way too hot. I can recall going to Warped Tour (rip) with friends one summer when I was about […]

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 […]
