Goodbye 2018

It's the last day of 2018, and in the midst of all the cleaning and errands done today, I've been thinking about everything that has happened in the past year. There were some really high highs and the occasional low. Overall, I'd say 2018 was a great year for me experience-wise. There is definite room... Continue Reading →

Hiatus

With the holidays and moving, plus not having internet for a week+, I wound up taking a small break from writing. We officially got everything into the house and turned in our apartment keys on the 16th... and immediately went out and bought a Christmas tree because I NEEDED to decorate. I really can't wait...

Moving

We're moooooving! Finally! K and I are making the transition from an apartment over to a house. We've actually been trying to move into this house for about 2 years now and the opportunity finally arose so we jumped on it. The house itself has been in K's family for decades but hasn't had much... Continue Reading →

101 Updates!

Since my last post in September about my 101 list, I've managed to cross a few more items off.

November Books

My co-workers are trying to keep me fueled with coffee and humor but who knows how much longer til I crash. Friday night we had an event in our community. The leasing office... Continue Reading →

Finances vs the Holidays

I love gifts. I love giving them to other people and I love giving them to myself. I've talked about my need for paying down my debt (just student loans and credit cards - I paid off my car this past October!!) so I try to be financially savvy yet when the holidays hit, it's... Continue Reading →

Running for Turkey

When I was a kid, my family was one of those race families, We did a bunch of 5ks, fun runs, and relays - maybe because my parents were trying to instill a love of fitness in us, or because we were young and they were hoping to burn some of our energy off -... Continue Reading →

Little Devil Stairs

I convinced K we needed to go hiking this past weekend and luckily he agreed. We haven't been able to go much this summer and fall with all the wedding events and rugby Saturdays we had on the schedule. All of that has ended for the season (with the exception of the Christmas 7's rugby... Continue Reading →
