Living in Lyme “hell”

Almost 3 years ago now, Zach and I worked one last summer at our beloved Summer Camp. That summer was supposed to be the best yet; we were both on senior staff, all of our closest friends would be there and as soon as camp was over we would be taking the California road trip… [Read More]

Reflections on “Slow” Running

I was a little hesitant to write this post. Not because I am embarrassed by my speed (or lack thereof) but more so because I don’t want anyone out there to feel like they are not a great runner based on their speed.  Also, I hate using the word slow (I really tried hard to find a… [Read More]

Saying yes to every opportunity

It’s also pourous and absorbs everything in our environment that we expose it to.  For… [Read More]

Coconut Chia Breakfast Pudding

It’s been a crazy few days around here and I am exhausted. Hubs and I are fostering two 6 week old lab cross puppies and boy are they a handful. In fact, I’m surprised that I have found the time to sit down and write this post (though, I can hear one stirring now so I’ll probably… [Read More]
