• When You Don’t Have Blogging Burnout & IG Challenge Announcement

    This post is full of random things in my head, but instead of silence around here, I am going to lay it all out. I’ve always heard the term “blogging burnout” but I had never really experienced it. Actually, I don’t even know if I have experienced it as of right now. What I do know is I have hit this area of exhaustion and I haven’t been handling it as well as I should. It’s the same tale I have been telling for the last several months. We are so busy. From traveling, projects, working, planning and otherwise, I just don’t have the brain power left for blogging. I’m…

    Why Are We Still A Headline Generation?

      I’m going to start this off with a warning, I am not going to even mention a specific presidential candidate, or elude to a certain one for that matter, even though this is based off of something relating to the election. I guarantee that in the end, it doesn’t have much to do with it. I also don’t mean specifically people in my generation, but those older and younger than me as well. I’m not even saying I am not guilty of the following topic, because I am, but after thinking about this so much, I am doing my best to do better.  A few weeks ago I noticed…

  • The Downside of Traveling

    This has been a popular week for travel posts, maybe the rest of this post shows why I am eager to talk about traveling. This is an odd post to write, because 1- everyone that follows my posts knows that I LOVE to travel and 2- look at my blog name. But anyways, I like to be honest and share what is on my heart. This includes the things about traveling that I don’t particularly enjoy, or the things that wear me down. For starters, travel exhaustion. This is totally a thing. It’s like needing a vacation after your vacation, but every single time. I think we achieved this in…

    Finding Balance In The Busy

    It seems like it is that time of season, it’s that type of year, it may even be that kind of life. The kind where everything is just busy. The day-to-day is nonstop, the weeks fly by with an unfinished to-do list, and all of a sudden another year has passed. There are so many things happening all of the time. Countless things to say yes to, but also things you need to say yes to, even when you would rather say no. Maybe because you don’t have interest, possibly something else is going on, you might even just need to curl up in a ball with a glass of…

    Two Years Later

    July 29th, 2012 was mine and Dave’s first official date. Heads up, this is going to be a mushy post….We had been “hanging out” for about a month, and for the 6 months prior to that we were great friends. I was so excited, nervous, happy the day he finally asked if we could go on a real date and instantly started thinking about what I was going to wear. The morning of, I told him to pick me up from my friend Gina’s house because I knew she could try and calm my nerves before Dave arrived. Once he got there, I took a deep breath and walked outside to…

  • What’s Up, Life?

    Now that I have my Bloglovin’ feed down to 300 from over 500, I feel like It’s okay for me to write this post. I always like to catch up with my favorite blogs before I start my posts for the day, unless I have some crazy inspiration. I am going to take this time to update you all on my life from the past few weeks and I’ll throw in some pictures. I have literally not had a chance to do anything between work, work, extra work and trying to sleep. But I am getting everything managed, and can’t wait to share my next few posts with you all!…
