You Guys, Life.

You guys. Life. I’m so, so thankful but so, so tired. I skipped blogging yesterday and was thankful to have a city guide on Wednesday because I just don’t have the same amount of time to blog that I used…Read more

Girls Getaway

I spent the weekend in Hocking Hills with five of my favorite Columbus ladies. We didn’t have cell service or wifi so we literally talked (LOUDLY) for almost 48 hours straight. Add in lots of wine, a hot tub, cheese and…Read more

Continue to Vote

Last night was a big night here in Ohio. As a self-employed female, I saw my vote make a difference. I’m not going to get into politics but Kathleen tweeted this last night and I couldn’t agree more: @andkathleen: Today…Read more

Just Keep Swimming

This isn’t a post where I apologize for not blogging in three days. Or where I say that I’m so busy. (Even though I essentially did just say both of those things). I will say, however, that life is moving…Read more

Let’s Connect

Now that I’m freelancing full-time, I decided to reassess and improve the ways in which I can connect with others. It’s easy to join every social network but it’s harder to be intentional (and use your accounts for different/unique purposes). I’ve listed…Read more
