  • Oh What A Week


    I have so much to fill you guys in on. It’s been quite a week…am so it’s only Wednesday morning. I’m drinking all the coffee right now as I juggle responding to about a gazillion Facebook messages about furniture I’m selling in the marketplace. Have y’all ever done this before? It’s convenient but a good [...]

  • Moving Week Eats


    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I grew up in Dublin, Georgia where St. Patrick’s Day was a multi-week celebration every year. While I won’t be drinking any green beer or attending any parades, I might throw on some green to teach this morning and I’ll definitely make some corned beef and cabbage soon. It’s one of [...]

  • Weekend: Painting, Packing, Pups + Snow?


    Hey, hey. It’s a rainy, cold day in Charlotte which makes for lots of productivity on my end. (source) Our weather has been truly bizarre lately. On Thursday it was 75 degrees and I was running in shorts and a tank top. Sunday we woke up to snow. Today is rainy and chilly. I feel [...]

  • Sometimes Simple is Best


    Good morning. I’ve got Kings of Leon radio playing on Pandora, a cup of coffee sitting on my desk and sunlight streaming in through the windows. I taught yoga at 6 a.m. and then came home and made breakfast for Tanner and myself. I’ve got the rest of the day ahead of me to focus [...]

  • An Ending


    Our lives are full of beginnings and endings…life, careers, relationships, creative endeavors, homes, routines, cities, the list goes on. Whether they are happy, sad or bittersweet, beginnings and endings and the transitions that come with them are an inevitable part of being human. I have recently been navigating my way through an ending behind the [...]

  • Recent Eats + The Homemade Tortilla Experiment


    Happiest of Fridays! This week has been really tough as I’ve juggled moving, getting used to a new space, living among boxes in general disarray all while trying to get my home ready for the couple moving in. Despite this, I still had a really good week of eats. One of my first priorities when [...]

  • Weekend: The Move


    I haven’t moved in nearly six years. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t forget what moving was like but this was the first time in my adult life that I stayed in one place for so long. There was A LOT of stuff to get through. I had multiple piles around the house designated “going [...]

  • A Year's Journey


    It’s amazing how much life can change in one year. Recently I have been thinking about our life in Birmingham and in disbelief that it’s been a year since law school graduation and our move to Charlotte. I’ve been working on this post for the last couple days to give you a glimpse of then [...]

  • Friday Already?


    How is it already Friday afternoon? This week has flown by – busy, busy, busy! We’ve been working like crazy on the house trying to get unpacked and establish a small degree of order before our friends Cristen and Graham arrived Friday. We planned this visit months ago and it just happened to end up [...]

  • Early Cinco De Mayo


    I must be honest. It was not fun to get up at 5 a.m. to teach BodyPump this morning. I was so exhausted from the weekend and so sore from yesterday’s yoga class. I was definitely feeling the effects in my hamstrings of pushing myself to the edge during standing splits. But I tell Brandon [...]

  • A Mid-Move Update


    ***RSS Readers – Sorry Wordpress went down midway through posting this. Sorry if the post did not show correctly in your reader. I’m so sorry I have been MIA the last couple days but my life has looked a little something like this. With just a little drama (nothing too terrible) we closed on our [...]

  • Moving Stress

    { 1 comment }

    This post is going to be super quick. There is way too much going on right now! Today was the weirdest day I’ve had in a long time. All day I was forgetting things and mixing things up. I’m hoping I can blame it on stress. I started the day at Y2 for a hot [...]

  • Return of the Veggies

    { 1 comment }

    Today started off much like the last few days – with a bowl of apple cinnamon oats (recipe posted here). While I do eat oatmeal most mornings, I usually switch up my mix more often than I have lately. Sorry if I’m boring you guys but I had half of an apple in the fridge [...]
