The weather here is finally REALLY nice! Like, really really nice! Yesterday Derek and I went for a run together {oof. I know I’m seriously out of running shape when he beats me down a long hill!}, and I was genuinely hot in my shorts and tank top. This doesn’t bode well for adjusting to…

DIY Weddings Magazine Feature

I’m super excited today because our wedding, which was eight months ago yesterday (!!), was featured in the Spring 2014 issue of DIY Weddings Magazine. Woohoo! If you remember from my post about our wedding, we DIYed almost everything — from the decorations to the backdrops to the desserts, and more! I had no clue…

Two weeks until we move to Asia! LESS THAN TWO WEEKS! Holy cow. {this post was supposed to go up yesterday, but my site was down all day… sorry ’bout that!} I can’t even really grasp that as a reality right now. Get ready for two weeks of OMG OMG OMG as I (likely daily)…

Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

I have a bunch of springy recipes all ready for you guys, but felt like I needed to keep it simple today. I had an experience last night that I haven’t been able to put out of my mind, and have been wrestling with the suitability of discussing it here. I’ve been sitting in front…

Cheddar Apple BBQ Burgers

OMG YES! GET EXCITED! These burgers were to. die. for. Simple, easy, ridiculously phenomenal burgers that you’ll probably want to eat ten of. More on that in a moment. I think I should start a fashion blog. Or perhaps just another section on this blog for fashion. If you know me at all, you’re probably…

Go Blog Social 2014

In a word, this weekend at Go Blog Social 2014 was inspiring. I never expected to be so glued to my chair for two days of speakers, and then excited to keep socializing with everyone I met — despite an extreme case of sleep deprivation. A few months ago, while reading one of Jessica’s posts,…

Chocolate Almond Flour Cakes for Two

I may or may not currently feel somewhat like death, despite feeling incredibly successful and excited about today! We woke up at 4 am this morning, which is a solid five hours earlier than usual, after less than five hours of sleep… and then spent the morning on airplanes and are now in Missouri! I…

Quick Chicken Tortilla Soup

With 29 days remaining before we head off to Asia (OMG), I’ve decided it’s time to learn Vietnamese. Yes, I’m serious. I don’t expect to be an expert before we arrive, or ever, but I do think it’s smart (and respectful) to learn at least SOME of the language of a country in which you…
