Oh you thought you were sick of my sunrise photos before? Well I have a new home, and now I wake up to this: I’m a little bit obsessed. Waking up is fun! So, I moved this weekend. I’m all […]

Ending The Week On A High Note With A List

I Am Strained But Not Injured

Date: April 10, 2012 at 9:28 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 39

Don’t do drugs. You don’t need them. Just run, and then you’ll be all high and stuff. I flew through this weekend in a slight funk, alternating between wicked fun times (spinning! packing! Home Depot!)… …and dramatic, whiny lows (um, […]

I really don’t want to be thankful today. I know, that’s not normal. I freakin’ love being thankful and grateful and being all “yay to the beauty of the world!” But today, I don’t feel normal. I feel like, in […]

On Being Full-Out

Date: March 30, 2012 at 9:14 am- by Ali- Comment(s): 44
