Honeymooning In Kenya, Part II: Masai Mara

Read Part I from our trip here. It’s basically a lot of pictures of giraffes and lions and me crying joy tears and stuff. For those who asked, the quality photos you see in these posts were taken by Brian. He was shooting on a Canon 7D and a LUMIX lx100. I don’t know what […]

Honeymooning In Kenya, Part I: Samburu

After a whirlwind 10 months of planning culminating in a whirlwind week and an even whirlwindier wedding (recaps forthcoming — gotta wait for the quality pics), Brian and I skipped town for our honeymoon. I never dreamed about what my wedding would look like or envisioned my “dream gown” or my favorite flowers (which made […]

Hey. What’s Up? Hello!

Yesterday, I called to make an appointment to get a spray tan — my first spray tan ever, very reluctantly — because I have a bad case of “summer running” on my back and my wedding dress is not, in fact, in the shape of a Lululemon Cool Racerback top. The nice woman on the […]

My First Yoga Retreat!

Last week I got all stressy and overwhelmed and I morphed into this version of myself where I snapped at loved ones and cried over stupid things and generally felt overwhelmed. On top of, you know, being frustratingly sick. Brian sent me an email basically saying, “You are not going to make it to the […]

Do What’s Going To Make You Happy

A few weeks ago, Brian and I ventured out to the North Fork of Long Island for a day. A day to chill. A day to celebrate 30. A day to actually hang out together in a non-cramped, stress-free, “no To-Do lists allowed,” laptop-less environment. A day in my very happiest place. The drive out […]

What I’ve Been Up To Lately

Hi! I’ve missed you. Life lately has been busy. And hot. And now rainy. And mostly good. In lieu of an organized, beautifully coherent post, here instead is a mass roundup of “My Life Lately.” Consider it a highlight reel. I “starred” (ha) in a Mets commercial. Two Mets commercials, actually! I played the part […]

My First Airbnb Experience

This is a sponsored post! Meaning the cool people at Airbnb — the title sponsor for the Brooklyn Half — reached out to me before the Brooklyn Half Marathon and asked if I’d be interested in staying in one of their Brooklyn rentals the night before the race (they gave me a credit to use […]

11 Things I Loved About Running Around Washington, D.C.

I walked out the door this morning and decided to take my building’s “secret shortcut” to get to the subway. (If you cut through the parking garage instead of leaving through the main entrance, you can shave like 7 seconds off your commute time!) I got to the parking garage exit and — since it […]

The Dog And Pony Christmas Show

There was Thanksgiving… …and then there was Hawaii… …and then the holidays came and went. And because of the festivities in Hawaii, Brian and I figured we should spend the holidays together for the first time, visiting both our families all over New England. He called it “the dog and pony show,” which I guess […]

Hawaii Part I: Oahu

A note before we get started: Thank you thank you thank you thank you for all the love and wonderfully kind comments on my last post and on Instagram. My mom is worried that I’m “going to want to invite everyone who liked my photos or commented on my post to the wedding.” And she […]
