Weekend Recap

Hi and happy Tuesday!  I didn’t end up writing this post on Sunday because I returned from Michigan too late (thanks to the ever-present construction on I-75 >:|), but had a chance to type it up last night…

Weekend Recap (MI + 4th of July)

Hello and happy Fourth of July!  I hope you had a fun holiday.  Adam and I spent the long weekend in Michigan with his sister and brother-in-law, who recently moved to a small town about an hour north of where we grew up in the southeast part of the state.  It was low-key and just what I needed after a long week.  Follow the jump for a few photos…

Weekend Recap (NYC + A Wedding)

Hi, friends. 🙂 I hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the summery weather.  I’m headed back to work after a week off, so really looking forward to that.  But first, my semi-regular weekend recap…I’ll get right to it since my brain’s feeling a bit wine-soaked and mushy right now.  I’m linking up with Erin and Katie as usual.

Weekend Recap (Summertime in FL)

Good morning and welcome to my third Monday off since Memorial Day.  My long slog through the disgustingly cold spring is finally paying off as I catch up on some vacation days (we can’t carry ours over to future years, which I actually don’t mind at all).  I’m traveling home today after visiting Adam in Florida, but here’s a quick recap of what we were up to this weekend (spoiler alert: it wasn’t much)…

What I’ve Learned in My First 6 Months of Blogging

Good morning!  How is your week going so far?  I’ve managed to stay on track with the blog and not yet finish the half gallon of ice cream I bought on Monday, so things are okay over here.

Today I wanted to take a step back and type out my biggest takeaways from my first six months of blogging (technically I purchased my domain back in October, but I didn’t start posting regularly until December) as part of my continued effort to stop doing things just to do them.  I’ll use this post to reflect on how I can improve; you might find it useful if you started blogging in the last 24 hours.  Some items on the list are technical, while some are more general musings.  Here goes 🙂  cup of joe 2

Weekend Recap (Ann Arbor + GP)

Hello friends!  I’m fortunately not awake yet because my wise former self scheduled a day of PTO to rest after a degenerates’ weekend with my college friends in Ann Arbor.  So this is the best Monday I’ve had in a while.  In case you’d like to start yours off by listening to me talk about myself on the internet, please follow the jump.

Friday Favorites #2

How are you guys?  I hope your short week was peaceful and productive.  🙂  I’m working in the morning today and driving to Ann Arbor this afternoon to spend the weekend with college friends.  We’re running a 10k on Sunday, which I expect to go well since I haven’t run six miles at once since this weekend a year ago.  But first, a quick list of Friday Favorites since the long weekend gave me a chance to write an extra post this week.
