2018 was a YEAR, not just for me, but for everyone. It seemed like every time we turned around, there was another news story that was more ridiculous than the last. Honestly, I think we’ve all reached our lifetime limit of shock value.
Thankfully, 2019 is just around the corner, and that means a fresh start. For my new beginnings in 2019, I’m looking forward to:
New job opportunities
Moving to the heart of Northeast Minneapolis, minutes away from my favorite breweries and coffee shops
Adopting a friend for Luna?? (If I put it in writing, it has to come true…right?)
Continuing to create fun, engaging content via social media and blogs

This summer, while looking at my September schedule, I knew I was going to need a vacation by the time the month was done. Tony and I decided we were going to head west; specifically, to Seattle. And of course we couldn’t leave out our neighbors to the north since we were so close! Here is a quick recap of the trip, including (probably too many) pictures of the gorgeous scenery.
Here’s a huge surprise to everyone: I am a white girl who loves fall. I know. But let’s move past that, because I want to talk about this, okay? Are we good?
The leaves have started changing and pumpkin spice lattes have been out for WEEKS. There isn’t enough time in the day for me to enjoy all the wonderful fall activities, so I’ve put together so many lists of things to do in fall, why I love it and what to look forward to. Because who doesn’t love a good list? And even more, who doesn’t love fall?!Read More »
