4 months and counting…

I keep doing this whole lapse thing in between posts; whoops! (Again). If I’m paying for my URL and hosting, I should theoretically be able to post whenever and not feel guilty by the frequency (or lack thereof)… right?   This time, I have three (!) excuses: Life Work SIMS!   I am verrrrryyyyy wrapped … Continue reading

Goodbye, 2016!

Yesterday I spent almost an hour writing a really long, heartfelt post about my 2016, believing that being positive in the face of all the negativity of the year would start 2017 off on the “right foot”. After typing paragraphs of what I’m grateful for and have accomplished this last year and then scouring every … Continue reading

Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes

During Sinéad’s visit, we experimented with vegan baking – more experimentation for me, since I hadn’t baked something intentionally vegan more than a time or two and a lot of fun for Sinéad since we decided to “wing it” with our measurements. As such, here is a one-of-a-kind (each time, lol) sort of recipe that is … Continue reading

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 3 + Jack’s Visit!

This is the last part of my series on Sinéad’s visit and it makes me sad that it’s almost over — I’m glad I have so many pictures to remember it! 😀 Aside from eating at various new vegan places, visiting magical Harry Potter Land, drinking lots of coffee, baking cupcakes and “scooping lefts”, we also … Continue reading

Sinéad’s Visit to Florida – Part 2

This entry has been a long time coming! It’s been 9 months now since my beloved Sinéad visited me, and I still haven’t shared everything from her trip – a travesty on my part, to be perfectly honest. I have been incredibly busy, but that’s no excuse – I have to share the amazing selfies and … Continue reading

Hello From the Other Side (Of the Country!)

I have so much to update with, but I want to give each new thing its own post so the many amazing things that have been going on can get the attention they deserve. Before I start a big slew of back logged photo posts however, I did want to at least announce the biggest thing … Continue reading

Life Lately: August

I didn’t mean for there to be such a large gap between posts, but I’ve had some medical issues for the last month that have kept me pretty busy. We’ll go with the short explanation and say that my wisdom teeth aren’t making me feel very wise, and I have an appointment with an oral … Continue reading

Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares

First, I need to let you know that my inaccurate cutting led to these being more rectangular than the title of this recipe would lead you to believe, but we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case – may the odds of even cutting be ever in your favor! Second, I have some seriously talented … Continue reading

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015!

Here it is again – the infamous “New Year’s Resolutions/End of the Year” post! Gym sales team members everywhere are preparing for their big bonuses over the next month as people flock to create better versions of themselves while spouting slogans such as “NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!”   Instead of some huge list of ways … Continue reading

Is it really almost November?!

As much as I’d like to start this post off with the typical apology for how absent I’ve been as of late, I won’t. I don’t want to lie to you, readers, and I am not sorry! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks busting my butt with school, which is paying off tremendously by … Continue reading
