Summer is all about easy meals for dinner. Before going vegan, I loved my mom's special chicken salad. I didn't think I would be able to give it up when I went meat-free but guess what? I found a way to still eat chicken salad...and yes, it's vegan!Read More

We took a weekend trip to Cleveland, Ohio to see the Indians play at Progressive Field as a part of our baseball tour. Cleveland is notorioursly known as "the mistake on the lake". It's just been down on its luck for years. Everyone thought it was cursed with terrible sports teams, until the Cavs just won the NBA Championship. Upon visiting Cleveland though, this place is NO mistake.Read More

I've been eating vegan for over a year now. I know vegans have a total reputation for shoving their beliefs down your throats and it's totally annoying. I try REALLY hard not to be that person, but instead encourage other people to try going vegan for at least 30 days. It's something I think everyone should do in their lifetime. it's truly an eye opening experience! (And if 30 days freaks you out, why not 15 days? 7 days? 3 days? Whatever works for you!)Read More
Hello, friends! Can you believe that July is OVER?! Ugh, where has summer gone? I'm already beginning with the end of summer anxiety that comes with being a teacher. Trying to soak up all the sunshine that I can!
I love makeup. I could wander around Sephora for hours. I'd choose to watch beauty tutorials on YouTube over TV any day. I love the pretty packaging, the little details, the way makeup can completely transform the way I feel about myself.Read More
Last week, I was on vacation with my family in Ocean City, New Jersey. We've been vacationing there as a family since I was in middle school. Ocean City is an island on the Jersey Shore and is a completely "dry" town, meaning no alcohol is served anywhere on the island, ensuring a truly family friendly stay. (There's a liquor store before you take the bridge over, so we always stop for some wine!)Read More
Do you want to know a really embarrassing fun fact?
Sometimes, I cry during baseball games.
I can hear Tom Hanks' voice ringing in my head, "There's no crying in baseball!" But still the fiery red hot tears filled my eyes.

Let me tell you a story.
When Macy asked Brandon and myself to be models for her styled shoot last December, I was BEYOND excited but also like, "Wait. Really? Why?" cause we're really bad at being models. I feel super awkward in front of a camera and when we were taking photos for our ACTUAL wedding, we couldn't stop cracking up because trying to be serious and romantic with a camera in your face is super awkward.Read More

I don't live in Napa Valley, but I do live in Maryland, which hosts 7 wine trails throughout the state. Earlier this month, me and the blogger girls (Macy, Megan and Laura) plus our men embarked on an ambitious day of wine + mead tasting, frolicking in the western Maryland and trying not to make fools of ourselves. We succeeded at all but the last one.
Along the way, we got to talk to the owners of some of the wineries and they had some really awesome tips for wine tastings!
Why I chose to go running on the hottest, muggiest day of the year, I'm not quite sure. Oh, and I haven't ran in a month and I've been sick for the past week...so that seemed like a good idea, right?
I huffed and puffed and pushed and pounded the pavement, red in face, I'm sure. I'm surprised no one stopped to offer me assistance for the asthma attack I probably appeared to be having.Read More
