Happy Friday!  This is moving weekend, so my spare time this week has been consumed with packing, packing packing!  Despite that, I wanted to drop in to say hello and share a few things that I’ve been liking this week!

5 Things I like about San Francisco

Today I’m linking up with Cynthia, Courtney and Mar of the DC Trifecta for a Friday Five on our favorite cities! I love San Francisco.

Three Things Thursday: Chiberia Edition

36 Weeks to IMWI

I had a moment today on my run. One of those moments where you know you’re flying. The push-off of my foot off the pavement was powerful, not a careless lift and move. I didn’t need my fancy watch to know I was moving quickly, and I didn’t dare distract myself b something as vain […]

How to Make the Holidays Work for You


I don’t love winter time, but I am enjoying the holidays this year!  Here are a few things I’m doing that I’m enjoying: 1-Deciding I don’t have to eat all the treats.  This year, I’m giving myself permission to only have holiday treats I want, and not things just because someone else is offering them.  So I […]
