ABS and I both set our alarms for 5:45 am (give or take) each morning. If I’m hoping to do a longer run, it’s 5:30. A shorter run calls for 6 am. But lately neither of us have been racing […]

What a weekend! In case you missed any of it, here’s what happened: I took Friday off to prep for Saturday’s Housewarming party. I took my second Hot Power Yoga class at Pure Yoga and loved it. I’m officially an […]

A Very Happy Housewarming

Party success! Last night’s party went even better than I could have planned or hoped for. Part of the reason things went well? I got so much done beforehand. If you’re throwing a party, I highly recommend taking as much […]
