Auld Lang Syne: 2014

6804ae6e7f67bdbc8e2a07a8bde1e114

I haven’t been feeling very inspired lately. I miss this blog and I miss having ideas for posts and I miss creating. I hope I get my groove back soon, I’ve been trying. In other news, 2015 has officially begun (in case you live under a rock). I didn’t do much in regards to celebrating […]

It’s Gonna Be Forever + Life Lately (Christmas Break Edition)

Holiday party #3 - posing in front of the Christmas tree.

Hello hello! I can’t believe how quickly Christmas came & went. I was really hoping to have more time to blog, but alas that didn’t happen. Surprised? haha. I had a week off of work (though I still worked here & there), so Mike and I traveled to New Jersey to spend Christmas with his […]

run-are-you-in-healthyishappyblog

I can’t even begin to describe my level of excitement for this announcement! I closely followed the official bloggers from this past year and loved reading about their journeys and training – especially after I got selected to guest blog for the 2014 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon and completed my first 10K! It was such an […]

Liebster Award… Round 2

liebster-award-healthyishappyblog

The Liebster Award is back, and I was lucky to be nominated not once, but twice! Thank you to Rachel (CLE Fashionista) and Kim (Born Bred Buttered) for selecting me. I did my first Liebster Award post back in April and it was fun to share a little about myself & connect with other bloggers. Wondering […]

Life Through The Lens #2

life-through-the-lens-graphic

To sum up the past 3 weeks: working, sleeping, LOTS of kitty snuggles & photo ops (seriously having 4 cats is so entertaining), Halloween, cooking, listening to T.Swift’s new album non-stop, not blogging, and I think that’s pretty much it haha. Obviously a lot more happened but let’s be honest – if it didn’t get […]

Life Through The Lens #1

life-through-the-lens-graphic

In an effort to keep up with this blog more regularly, I thought I’d start with something kind of easy but still fun – a photo snapshot/Instagram recap type post (since Instagram is basically just a mini photo blog). I do really hope to get back into posting more regularly and I hope this will help […]

Recipe: Broccoli Cheddar Soup With Irish Beer Cheese

recipe-broccoli-cheddar-soup-irish-beer-cheese

There’s something about fall that just makes me crave soup. Obviously the cooler temperatures and leaves changing call for something warm and comforting. Plus with Mike and I being under the weather, it was a necessity. One of my favorites is broccoli cheddar soup, which is traditionally not very healthy. However I followed a recipe […]

Put-in-Bay Celebrations + My 25 Before 25 List Update

5K finishers

For my 25th birthday, I decided to plan a weekend around a 5K race: the 5K at Put-in-Bay. Mom booked a bed & breakfast for her, myself, and Mike. Some other friends decided to join us as well, so they booked a suite at the Put-in-Bay Resort. Minus some logistical issues, lack of cell-phone service […]
