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.

Explore Ohio // Cuyahoga Falls { AND A GIVEAWAY! }

May 14, 2017

Before moving to the Akron, Ohio area, I’d heard about one of its suburbs, Cuyahoga Falls. I assumed it was this tiny place. Because, honestly, it just sounds like a tiny little peaceful place.

April 16, 2017

After graduating college ten years ago (eek!), I made the decision to move back from Upstate New York to Northeast Ohio, where I grew up in a tiny, country town. I had spent years away from my family and friends and I knew that Ohio was where I was supposed to be. After college I […]

Life Lately // and a Mantra

April 10, 2017

Ya’ll. I keep wondering, where did the day (night, week, months) go?? As I find myself smack dab in the middle of a 22-day working streak, I’m not only exhausted, but I’m so grateful for those little moments that make this hustle and this (part) stay-at-home mom nonsense worth it. Here’s what we’ve been up […]
