Memorial Weekend & MOTOACTV Fun

Good morning and happy Memorial Day! I hope you’ve all been having great holiday weekends full of outdoor fun and friends, and that you also take a moment to think of the real meaning of the holiday as well, which is to honor all the men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

One Last Chapel Hill Bike Ride

Good morning! Matt and I had a wonderful last weekend here in Chapel Hill. If you’re just tuning in — I’m finishing up the coursework portion of my Masters of Public Health in Nutrition here at UNC-Chapel Hill (our last final exam is tomorrow — biochem!) and Matt and I are moving back up to DC on Thursday!

Biking is my Happy Place

Good morning! Did anyone else find it really hard to get up this morning?! I couldn’t fall asleep very easily last night, either. I loved that it was light out so long last night… but I can’t decide if it’s worth having dark mornings again! Oh, daylight savings. Matt and I spent most of yesterday being productive. I was on a spring Continue Reading …

Back in Chapel Hill!

Matt planned out a big loop through some of the country roads near us. It was a GORGEOUS day — 70 and Continue Reading …

Biking & Outdoor Movies

Hello and happy Sunday! I have had SUCH a fun weekend so far. Let’s rewind a bit — starting with Friday! The weather was gorgeous and my friend Lauren and I decided a late afternoon bike ride was in order to celebrate the end of another busy week. Perfect example of one of my favorite kinds of workouts — fresh air AND a fun friend date. :) Continue Reading …

Labor Day Weekend Highlights

Hello and happy Labor Day! I hope all of you in the U.S. are enjoying a day off from labor today :) Matt and I have been enjoying our long weekend here in Chapel Hill.

Home Again, Home Again!

Hello, hello! I’m back in Chapel Hill and getting organized after my whirlwind few weeks of vacation (stay tuned for a fun recap of it all tomorrow)! I love traveling, but I love my real life, too. :) It’s nice to be home again, especially since I got to see this guy! Matt and I went for a nice bike ride yesterday after I arrived home from Continue Reading …
