Greetings from Arizona

posted on: Sunday, April 15, 2018

Hello from Arizona! I'm in Scottsdale visiting my parents for the extended weekend... and it's been a fabulous few days away. So far, I've enjoyed a day trip to Tucson and Saguaro National Park, hiking in Sedona, visiting Old Town Scottsdale, and time relaxing by the pool. I'm soaking up as much sunshine as I can, before returning back home! xx

What's Your Fitness Routine?

posted on: Tuesday, April 10, 2018

With summer around the corner (and hello: our wedding!) I've been trying to step up my fitness lately. As you may have seen on Instagram, I added Orangetheory classes to the mix. The workout combines interval treadmill sessions and strength training to get your heart rate up and metabolism burning. Have you tried it? In case you're interested, your first Orangetheory class is always free. Let me ask: What’s your favorite fitness class, studio or workout?

Since beginning my blog nearly five (!) years ago in 2013, my hope has been to create a positive and inspiring place to visit everyday. So, in the spirit of continually improving my site — and also getting to know you better! — I created a reader survey. It's fairly short and sweet, but something I'd greatly appreciate your feedback with. All responses are recorded anonymously. Thank you, always! xx
