Explore Ohio // Downtown Akron

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 […]

April 4, 2017

Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the Devils Backbone Brewing Company release party for Cleveland at Ohio City’s own Black Pig restaurant! I’ll admit something — I had never heard of Devils Backbone Brewing Company prior to this event. In fact, although I have frequented many of the restaurants in Ohio City, The […]

The Little Mermaid, Retro Dog, and a Pi(e) Day Celebration // A Wrap Up

March 20, 2017

Yesterday, after staring at my planner for what seemed like hours, I was amazed to see that we’re nearing the end of March. Amazed because it seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Remy Bea’s first birthday — but it was two whole months ago! Every single day with little kids feels like the.longest.day.ever. Everyday […]

March 7, 2017

You know those weekends that just restore your soul? Well, I had one of those weekends, friends. It also just so happened to be one of those weekends where I had “X-Y-and-Z” planned…. but all of it got nixed off the to-do list and we just improvised. Friday we had plans to go to the Great […]

Smoothies, Foodies, and the Vitamix Ascent Series Launch //

March 3, 2017

In my constant search for balance in motherhood (and life) I have made certain concessions for the sake of time. For instance, we often forego eggs, toast, and cereal for breakfast in lieu of something we can take on-the-go — like smoothies. I’m guilty of occasionally using those pre-made frozen smoothie fruit mixes. Yes, I […]

FeBREWary Beer School at Ohio Beergarden

February 28, 2017

I’m finally just catching my breath coming off my crazy-busy week last week. While things had been crazy since Monday, the fun really took off on Wednesday when I had the pleasure of attending FeBREWary Beer School at Ohio Beergarden in North Olmstead.

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 […]
