Ready for a Change

For months, I've be... Read more

So now I need to lose weight for reals. Because I'm not buying bigger pants ... Read more
Where to start?
I last blogged at the end of September after turning 30 and feeling and in a bit of a third-life crisis. Apparently, I needed a good swift kick to make me appreciate my life more and since then, its been one dramatic health turn after another. ... Read more
To say that it's been a while since I blogged would be a vast understatement. Since April, when I last wrote, I've been sort of off the grid, wrapped up in summer and all its glory--swimming, vacationing, lazing away, and generally in a state of... Read more
Salads, Salads bo-Balads

So, if I haven't mentioned it here before, I am a a huge design nerd. Yes, I'm an editor by trade, but my heart belongs to fabric swatches, antique hutches, paint chips and fabulously ugly lamps.

Feeling Sparkly! (And Sore)
Of course, for me, those two things do tend to go hand-in-hand. I've been sticking to a regular diet for the past month or so, and now I'm back into an exercise regime as well. I did a spin class on Sunday, bootcamp Monday morning at 6 am and ra... Read more
It's been a little over a month since I last blogged. And yes, a little over a month since I last tracked my diet or exercise regularly, too. Ugh. Completely unacceptable!
Now, that's not to say that I've been binging and laying around for ... Read more

Stress and the (newly!) Social Girl
This weekend is going to be delightful. Adam and I are meeting a good friend for her birthday party at a wonderful Indian restaurant tonight--then out for ice cream and a movie with the group. I've mentioned before that I don't have a large soc... Read more

Saturday we went to the Contemporary Art Center (Cincinnati's is wonderful), sto... Read more
Not So Random Acts of Kindness
I've spent a lot of time this week thinking about my goals for the year--both personally and professionally--and I've come to the conclusion that they're rather self-centered.
Not that I'm giving up on them already! Nope. Just adding to th... Read more
So far so good
Well, I know we're only 4 days into the new year, but I for one am delighted with my four days of stick-to-it-iveness. So far, my year is off to an excellent start.
