Weekend Recap: Hocking Hills, OH

14 of us spent time in a cabin in beautiful Hocking Hills. It was a blast to be surrounded by wonderful people. We really are so blessed to be able to take a break from our hectic everyday lives to enjoy a weekend with food, friends, and adventure. We’re hoping this will be an annual thing. Here are photos from our little weekend getaway!DSC_0009 editIMG_0074.JPGDSC_0021DSC_0027DSC_0052


4th of July Recap

It was a 4-day weekend…which means going back to work is a real struggle. It was wonderful to take a break from the everyday, enjoy good company, and take some time to be thankful for life and the country we live in.

Here are a few photos from the long weekend. Hope yours was a memorable one too!

Weekend Recap

Warmer weather means outdoor activity and lots of summer hangs. This past weekend was just what I needed. Hope you’re all enjoying these warmer, brighter days – they’re everything, aren’t they?!

(Long) Weekend Recap

Long weekends are so refreshing! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend – I know I did. I decided a little getaway was in order so I headed to Cincinnati to visit a dear friend and explore the city. I didn’t have much of an agenda … Which is very unlike me. My plan was simple, spend time with my friend, spend time exploring & getting inspired by the things around me. Here are a few snaps from my trip to Cinci.

Spots I visited:

  • Cafe Emporium
  • Eden Park
  • Mirror Lake @ Eden Park
  • Krohn’s Conservatory
  • The Purple People Bridge
  • Hyde Park
  • Graeter’s Ice Cream
  • Macaron Bar
  • Shopping: Rockwood & Kenwood Towne
  • Over the Rhine
  • Vine Street
  • Holtman’s Donuts

Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving Recap

Although I was far from my family during the holiday I had lovely friends (and their families) that adopted me for Thanksgiving. I am beyond grateful for the friends I have made – the Lord really does take care of everything when you trust him.

I wish I could say I made smart food choices but instead I just learned that I am really good at consuming carbs. No regrets.
