11 Reasons I Loved February

This week has felt like a month, and this past month — the so-called shortest one — felt like a year. But it’s officially March, which signals spring! And I’ve got a little pep in my step today, so I wanted to pop in to look back at the past 28 days. Because even though, for […]

Life in 2018

I’m really excited about 2018. I have a few New Year’s Resolutions. Nothing groundbreaking, just checklist-y things I want to (I will) accomplish this year. And since I believe everything good comes from putting your big dreams out there, here are mine: 1. I will put myself first. This is something I realized I need to […]

2017

A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to start gathering my favorite photos from the past 12 months to build my annual “Best of the Year” Facebook album. OK, so I’ve only done this “tradition” once, in 2016, but my intention was the same: When I was sick and sad for the last […]

Things That Made Me Smile This Week

Want to smile? So do I. Here are a few things that made me smile this week. This video, which I cannot stop watching. It makes me laugh and cry [happy tears], and the song brings me back to my college-era Moulin Rouge! obsession. Dogs are the best. (H/T to my buddy Kaitlin for sending this one […]

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 […]

The Triumphant Return Of Thankful Things Thursday

Big things are happening. Huge. On Tuesday, I ran to work! It was cold and wonderful. My first morning run! On Wednesday, I fully reacquainted myself with public transportation. I rode the subway three times and took the bus once. Guess how many cabs I took? I took zero cabs. [Insert big sigh of relief […]

You Can Have A Good Day Today

Warning: Overly optimistic and peppy post ahead. Yesterday I wrote about how I’m so happy to be in the midst of marathon training. My speedy, rainy morning run wasn’t the only good thing about yesterday. In fact, right before bed last night, I actually said out loud, “Absolutely nothing bad happened today. Today was awesome” […]

How To Have A Good Day

It’s quite simple, really. Here’s my two-step plan for starting your day off on the right foot: Step 1: Make eye contact with a stranger. Step 2: Smile. Boom. It’ll make you feel good and you may even get a smile in return. I swear, this works. I smile at random people all the time, […]

Every Day Is A Good Day

I don’t have a whole lot to say tonight (for once!) so I’ll keep this short and simple: With the exception of two zits that seem to be taking over my entire face (No, I will not post photos of that, ew), life is pretty darn good these days. It’s so amazing to be able […]
