Concept of Home

I have been struggling for quite some time (since moving really) on nailing down where home is for me. It has been a weird transition in my life because upon moving out this time it became very clear that it was more permanent than the times before. I was not off to school and returning back. It was me moving forward with my life and away from the childhood home, where I grew up and the place where I largely became who I am today. Moving was also a big step in my life and relationship with Ryan; it was really the beginning of planning a future together.

Running Apps To Keep You Motivated

There are two types of runners in this world, those that go out with just their shoes and enjoy nature (I strive to be more like this type of runner one day) and those that use technology to the max for their run. I myself (unfortunately) fall more often than not in the latter category. It is not that I do not enjoy running, but I get very much in the mind frame of trying to track every single aspect of my run so that I can know, what is working, where to improve and what I most want to focus on in the upcoming runs.

Garden Planning Tips

One of my favorite parts of gardening is the planning process. Every year around Early to Mid-April I begin figuring out what exactly I am going to plant this year in the Garden and break out my spreadsheet to start filling it in for the season. This is my time to reflect back on last years season and try to fix or better my garden this year. It also just, in general, gets me excited for summer and garden fresh vegetables.

Ways To Celebrate Earth Day

Today & Every Day

Happy Earth Day! Every year I let this day be a great reminder to myself of why I need to get out of my winter shell, go outside and once again get in touch with the Earth. And not to sound too much like my Mom, it is an amazing opportunity to take time to celebrate all the things we are blessed with just by being on this planet. It is a day to reconnect with this beautiful rock,ย commit to simple changes with big impacts and remind ourselves why it is so important to protect it, not just on this day but every day.

Moving On

I have thought about writing this blog post countless times over the past few months and I am glad to say I finally can. I QUIT MY JOB! After months of going back and forth, weighing the pro’s and cons and debating whether or not it was the right choice, I bit the bullet and just did it.
