Currently: April

Planning little breaks in an otherwise very busy summer, like maybe a weekend in the mountains of West Virginia doing yoga, trail running, and other hippie things via Wanderlust?

Wearing all the spring colors. Actually, only like 2 colors: teal and yellow. But that's 2 more colors than I usually wear. I'm putting the finishing touches on my spring capsule but I already started putting the things I'm sure about into rotation this week!

Loving spring weather. I know it won't be long until I start to wonder what I did to deserve the punishment that is temperatures above 75*, but while it hovers just under that and we still get a nice breeze to go ameliorate the sunshine...bliss.

Starting to ride my bike outside again. It's amazing to me how far those just two wheels and my little legs will get me in such a short amount of time. It's such an escape.

Participating in a new yoga challenge with my #badyogi BFFs Alyssa and Kristen. Apologies in advance for the stream of yoga photos coming soon to my Instagram account.


Having a hard time believing that Ben and I will celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary this summer. We've packed so much into the last 5 years. I can't believe we were only 22 and 23 when we got married - such babies, it doesn't even seem right that we were allowed to get married? Looking back, I made a lot of decisions in my early 20s that I've since revised because they didn't put me where I wanted them to...but if only one of them could have turned out as planned, I'm glad it was Ben.

Looking forward to Becky's Blacksburg visit next month!

Figuring out where we are going to live this summer. We're road-tripping to Virginia Beach tomorrow to check out a few places we're interested in and, if it all goes well, our biggest dilemma will be deciding exactly how far we want to live from the beach (2 blocks or 1.5 miles?). Life is really tough, you guys.

What are you up to?

  1. Little adventures in a busy summer is good!! I feel like that is how my life is right now, too. I admire your yogi challenge!!! And if you end up living that close to the beach I may just have to road trip out to visit lol :)

  2. I've only done a few youtube videos of Yoga and loved them but it showed me just how NON flexible I am anymore!! LOL, hoping to change that this summer. Ahh! 5 years?! Congrats! That's so amazing. We're about to hit our 2 years and I already can't believe it.

    That's really all I have to say, because that's all that needs to be said. Other than you and Kristen and Jaelan have prompted me to join the badyogi IG challenge too :)

  5. Seeing all these yoga poses makes me feel like I want to do it too- though I'm pretty sure I would fall over on my head ;) haha I can't wait to see your capsule- I'm liking the sound of yellow and teal! I'm usually good with summer as long as it's under 90-- I can say that now because I still feel like it's never going to warm up and actually be nice out! I'm excited to get my bike out soon too-- I'm not very hardcore, but I love riding through all the trails we have here. Also, I have a cumulative email coming your way soon from our last few emails. oh and I'm voting 2 blocks from the beach :)

  6. I would love go to one of the Wanderlust events!! So many good ones to choose from. Can't wait until I can pull my bike out of storage. Still quite a bit of snow up here (womp womp!). I thought about doing the yoga challenge,but I'm already doing another instagram challenge, so I opted out. Keeping up with one is hard enough! Congrats to you and Ben on your upcoming 5 year anniversary. Sounds like you'll be celebrating on the beach!

  7. Ohh man. Beach living is such a hard life. ;)

    Haha!

    I'm glad I found the yoga challenge on Kristen's IG because I was looking for something like that! I'm so excited to participate.

    Isn't this Spring weather the WORST? Not. Not at all. I am so happy for Springtime!

  8. I am NEVER sad about temperatures over 75. I always wonder what possessed me to move back to Boston from Florida. Glad you're enjoying spring so far!

  9. I can't wait to see your spring capsule!!! Temps above 75? I long for anything 85 or less in the hot summer days down here in the deep south!!! Right now it is super pretty...but soon enough it is going to be unbearable. Good luck on finding your new home :) Have a great weekend!

  11. Thanks for offering your couch and letting me get my Blacksburg fix in!! I can't wait to hang out :) I don't think I've said congrats yet on your internship! When I visit my niece/nephew this summer I'm definitely going to pop over to VA beach!! Sarah and Ryan will be celebrating 5 years of marriage this summer too! 75 degrees is where it should be at always!!
