Weekend Adventures

Hello from the train on the way from DC to Philadelphia! I’m heading up for the day for my annual holiday meet up with my college BFFs, Turner and Kris.

Why I Love Yoga

I went to a yoga class during lunch today, which is one of my favorite things to do lately because it really resets the workday and puts me in a wonderful calm mindset.

Birthday Dinner + Definitions DC Gym Review

Hi friends! Last night, Matt made us a fun dinner in honor of my birthday: cedar plank salmon! Using this method, salmon is cooked on a plank (soaked in water so it doesn’t catch fire) over indirect heat. It imparts a really nice smoky flavor and makes it nice and juicy, too! He bought salmon from Whole Foods that was pre-marinated in a Continue Reading …
