Moving Day

Today is the day I say goodbye to my home in Manhattan. It doesn’t feel that dramatic (or traumatic) yet. I’m sure it’ll sink in eventually, but it’s not like we’re fleeing the area completely. We’re actually going to be closer to midtown and downtown than we are now. My theory when it comes to moving […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately (Spoiler: Packing!)

Hello! Do you remember me?! A few weeks ago, I ran into some big-time blog issues. Turns out, for the past six years, I haven’t been properly resizing my photos, and I basically blew up my server. My blog is now the size of the entire NSA archives. It’s still a work in progress (one […]

NYRR Gridiron 4M Recap

I ran the New York Road Runners Gridiron 4-Miler in 2011 as the first of my nine races to qualify for the New York City Marathon. I had barely been racing at the time, and I remember loving it. I felt fast, I enjoyed every mile, and I was really into the four-mile distance. Turns out, […]

Planning A Puppy Graduation Party (And Other Life-Changing Plans & Goals)

At the end of puppy class on Sunday, our teacher said, “Bring something kind of weird or different to wear for the next class.” I immediately perked up. We have just the thing for Ellie to wear! Upon further clarification, apparently the “weird thing to wear” is for the humans, not the dogs, so they can […]

Thankful Things Thursday: Running & Puppies

I was in a pretty foul mood this morning. Life is so hard. I got to bed late last night, so I chose not to go to yoga this morning as planned. I was stressing over my schedule and trying to figure out how to get everything done on time, and then Ellie was being a […]

15 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

I’ve done a bit of soul searching this week. Not for any particular reason. Nothing’s wrong. Life’s just fine. Yay hooray! But I’ve been feeling more introspective than normal. (I blame this on the fact that I spend a lot of time walking my puppy — and therefore a lot of time with my thoughts, since she […]

2016: So Far, So Sweet

Happy New Year! So far my 2016 has been pretty status quo. I have no big (or small, for that matter) 2016 goals, resolutions, defining words, or themes. Instead, I just intend to live as simply and happily as possible. I want no drama, loads of kindness, tons of hugs, and plenty of rolling with the […]

Thank You, 2015

This post will be sappy and cheesy and it will include wedding photos and puppy photos and all the things that have made me smile the hugest in 2015. You’ve been warned. Joy ahead. When I look back at 2015, I feel so much love. And for that I feel really lucky and grateful and […]

“Super Motivated By Food & Attention”

Life lately is all puppy, all the time. Puppy pee, puppy poop, puppy cuddles, puppy love, and more puppy pee and poop. Things sure have changed over the past two weeks. Being a “puppy parent” is no joke! I never expected it to be easy, but it’s proven to be quite the roller coaster. Here’s […]
