A lot has been happening in life lately. I kind of alluded to the fact that things have been kind of crazy around here. More on that later (sorry). But a week and a half ago I had a chance to kind of set all of that aside and went[ to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo […]

and the coffee addiction grows.

April 15, 2015

I’ve been a self-proclaimed coffee addict since college. That lovely aroma of roasted beans brings me right back to those moments of studying for exams and rushing between class and work.

A girl and her iPhone are never apart. Am I right!? As someone seeking balance, I try not to have too many unnecessary apps downloaded on my phone. Yep, I’m one of those nearly OCD people who clears out apps and keeps them in nice little “folders.” If only I was that organized with my […]

Urban Farmer // #BloggerRoundup

September 16, 2014

It’s been nearly three weeks since my Single Week; and just as long since I had a meal where I wasn’t eating as quickly as possible to keep a toddler from begging me for whatever it is I’m scarfing down. While I’ve learned that this is now the lifestyle I prefer (competing with a toddler […]
