Ankle-Friendly Workouts + Recent Eats

P8170004

Hello friends! So, you know what’s really dumb? We did this great rocky/hilly hike on Sunday with no problem, and then, once we’re home, I randomly twist my ankle walking off our back steps. I know. I should probably come up with a cooler story, huh? As a result, I’ve been taking it easier than usual on the fitness front this week. When it first Continue Reading …

Weekend: Charlottesville + The Shenandoahs

P8150042

On Saturday afternoon, Matt, his parents, and I all drove down to Charlottesville for a big event: Matt’s graduation from graduate school with his masters degree!

I’m thinking a little evening kayaking might be in order, too! On the menu earlier this Continue Reading …

Hi friends! I have all sorts of randomness to talk about today so I figured it made sense to share it in a things I’m lovely lately sort of format! I hope you all had fun weekends – ours was great (we were shockingly in town/not traveling) but too fast, as usual. :) 1) Flight Trampoline Park Matt and I have started doing date nights once a week Continue Reading …

Hi friends! I’m west coast bound this morning – headed out to San Diego to have a mini-reunion with a few of my grad school friends! I had a 4:30 a.m. wake up call – oof – but it will be worth it to get out there at a decent hour. I’m now in Houston on a layover – next stop, California! In other news, can summer last forever? It was a beautiful Continue Reading …
