Auld Lang Syne: 2014


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 […]

#runCLE // 2015 Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon Official Ambassador


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


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


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


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


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 […]
