• Make It A September To Remember

    Happy September! Can you believe it’s already a new month? I always love the beginning of a new month. It always feels like a fresh start with new goals and adventures. Why limit resolutions to a year when you can have monthly resolutions?! As you could have guessed, fall is my FAVORITE season and it’s 21 days away (who’s counting though). I’ve been pretty busy on Pinterest lately, finding fall pins and getting so many ideas for the crisp, cool weather.  Leaves are already changing colors and I am beyond excited. September isn’t only a month to remember because fall is arriving, but there are a few other reasons. First, it’s half marathon…

  • Stop And Look Around

    Whenever I go for a run or walk, it always clears my head. It takes me away from my busy routine and lets me relax, something that is hard to do when you are caught up in a busy schedule. Running also let’s me notice things that I may not have noticed before. I haven’t ran for the last week and a half because (surprise, surprise) I have been so busy with work, moving and getting ready for graduate school. My half marathon is a month away, and I told myself I have to get back to training, no excuses. As I was running today, I came across a sign that…

  • Friday Favorites

    Happy Friday, everyone! I don’t know about you, but this week seemed to fly by. It’s been a busy week with packing and getting ready for our move to Milwaukee! Packing, cleaning, renovations, getting furniture together… it’s an exciting (and hectic) time. And Friday means… my Friday Favorites! 1. Running Routine As my loyal readers now, I love to run.

Lately, I have been so busy with work, packing, cleaning and getting ready for grad school and…

  • Friday Favorites

    Happy Friday! Oh, how I love this day. Let’s get right into my Friday Favorites! F Scott. Fitzgerald The beauty and honesty in F Scott. Fitzgerald’s words gives me shivers! He has always been one of my all time favorite authors, ever since I read The Great Gatsby. Today, he is one of my Friday Favorites. But, in reality, he’s my everyday favorite. Here are two of my favorite quotes. Quote 1 “She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her…

  • Goodbye Monday Blues

    I never liked how people would start off Monday’s on a negative note. Yes, the weekend just ended and reality strikes yet again. But why should that be bad? I think Monday should have a positive meaning attached to it, which is why I say goodbye to those blues! I start my Monday off with a cup of coffee (lots of coffee) and a mental list of goals and fun things I want to accomplish and do for the week. Below are 3 goals that I have set for myself this week! 1. Drink coffee on the balcony So simple, right? I hardly ever use my balcony in my apartment and it’s…
