Hello, my friends! I hope those of you who had yesterday off for the holiday enjoyed it! Inspired by the Olympic Winter Games, Matt, my dad, and I decided to take a day trip and go skiing!

Good morning, my friends! It’s another really cold one here in DC, but I’m happy to say I made it out for a run this morning anyway! We’re bracing for another big snow storm tonight/tomorrow, so I figured this might be my last chance to run outside for a few days. Had to take advantage! My partner in crime for this morning’s running Continue Reading …

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

Around the holiday season for as long as I can remember, my mom has made these delicious chocolate covered cherry cookies. They are, I can say without a doubt, my most favorite cookies in the whole wide world. These cookies are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination, but you guys know I’m a firm believer in the fact that being Continue Reading …

Good morning! I’m feeling good this morning – it’s Friday, it’s not –10 degrees (mid 30’s = heat wave), and I dragged myself out of bed this morning for a run and was rewarded with this view. As always, SO worth it, both for the view and of course for how great getting in a morning run makes me feel for the rest of the day. My Continue Reading …
