Tuesday Things

Happy Tuesday, all! You know all those Friday Favorites posts everyone does? I love those, so I thought it would be fun to do one…today. Here it goes.


Super beautiful days when running feels like it is something I was meant to do. Especially in comparison to yesterday, when running (even though it was beautiful) felt like a chore. Some days, every step is agony.

This song for working out (<– go ahead and skip if you don’t like bad words) and this song for hanging out (profanity-free!).


Red grapes and egg burritos. I cannot get enough grapes this summer.

My roommates and I watched this documentary on Sunday night, and it was so good! Have you seen it? Also, if you haven’t heard of/read The Happiness Project, I highly recommend it.


This stray cat that has moved in our yard. I’m not a cat person, but I can’t help but love him. My roommate named him Oliver.

This bedtime yoga routine. I love anything Adriene does.


And I can’t have a post that doesn’t include Dora, especially since I already mentioned another animal! This was at the sunflower fields, before we found a tick on her and later found one in my hair, when I momentarily loved nature.

What things are you guys digging lately? Let me know any recommendations, and have a lovely Tuesday. :)

But lately it’s been more like, sleep in till 10am, grab some iced coffee, fool around on the internet, etc. Which is exactly what this morning has been.

Summer, So Far

Oh my goodness, you guys. I don’t even know where to begin. It’s been so long!

So a little over one month ago, I finished my first semester back to school. I’m now officially on “summer break” (I guess people who work full-time jobs can still call it that?). How have I been enjoying my summer so far?

On Being Genuine and Taking a Break

Hiiiii. Remember when I wrote this post and then didn’t post again for 2 weeks? Maybe I don’t really want to start blogging again after all. ;)

But anyways, I wanted to write out some things that I’ve been thinking about a lot. Like processing-for-the-past-year-and-a-half thinking about. And if you are one of the people who has helped me work through these things, first, let me apologize for having to go through this again, but also THANK YOU for being such a lovely, caring friend to me. I truly am blessed with the most wonderful people in my life.
