Explore Hilton Head //

September 4, 2017

We returned from our first big vacation as a family of four just over a week ago. We travelled over 11 hours to get to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, where we met up with my mom and dad (Mimi + Poppy), and my sister and her family. So there were 6 adults, two babies, […]

Day Tripping // Louisville, Kentucky

August 14, 2017

Life has been hella crazy lately. I’d like to say we’ve been busy travelling the globe, but that would be semi inaccurate. I mean, we have been travelling the midwest rather thoroughly. 😛 😛 And one of the great things about living in the Midwest is that we can travel a few hours and be […]

Elevate, Play with Lark, SOAK, and Eat Local! // Embracing the Chaos

July 24, 2017

We’ve been so crazy busy lately that we’ve hardly had a chance to slow down. It’s my own fault, really. I’m a chronic over-scheduler. It’s a blessing and a curse, friends. It really is. See, I thrive on the crazy; I need the busy days. I need them because they make me feel accomplished. And […]

Explore Ohio // Wooster { and a GIVEAWAY! }

July 14, 2017

I have to admit — I’m really loving this “Explore Ohio” series! Not only does it give me a chance to give ya’ll a virtual tour of my favorite places, but it’s a way of reminding myself exactly why I love living here. There is always somewhere new to explore — like these kid-friendly things […]

Explore Ohio // Wayne County

July 3, 2017

Confession: I grew up in Amish country. Okay, so many of you may already know that about me; but some of you may not know what exactly that means. It means that our high school consisted of students from 3 different towns coming together to attend school (but still only graduating with 83 people); it […]

Illness, Float Therapy, Yoga, and the Northside Market // Weekly Mantra

February 5, 2017

So last week I was all “this is going to be THE BEST week,” which is pretty much just tempting fate. And fate handed me about 50% of what I was expecting last week, and 50% of the unexpected. Win some, lose some, friends. Monday morning I woke up with a bit of a sore […]

Red & White on Thursday Night // Recap

February 2, 2017

Last week Chad and I legit skipped our way out the front door to attend the 20th anniversary of Red and White on Thursday Night — a food and wine event to benefit The Arthritis Foundation. I’ve said before that this event is truly our favorite event of the whole year. It’s something we continuously […]

Life Lately // June 2016

June 3, 2016

This post originally started as a “weekend wrap up” … OVER A MONTH AGO! Like, I’m talking APRIL. But life just got extra busy and the sleep started to get even harder to come by. So I was failing at putting words into sentences. Heck, most of the time I’m still struggling to put logical sentences […]

crafts, drafts, + food trucks //

May 25, 2016

I have about a gazillion things on my blog to-do list right now. But I would be remiss not to mention this past weekend — regardless of the crazy to-do list! On Wednesday of last week I sent out an S.O.S. to my mama. It has been a few weeks since I’ve seen her, which […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

April 14, 2016

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]
