Running streak completed

 Made it through day 81. Total miles: 235.5 I didn’t make it up to my 100 days, but after Peru I’m going to try again. There’s a good reason, but I don’t think I want to give any excuse on here. That gives me a couple weeks to continue running and start doing more strength…

Relationships (pt. 2): Your Other Half

Now let’s get to the nitty-gritty relationships: boyfriends and girlfriends. These are extremely sticky because these relationships are less like family and more like REALLY close friends. You choose to not only be friends with this person for a season in your life, but sometimes for a lengthy time in your life. And you keep…

Sharing Saturday: Hand Luggage Only

I found this awesome blog as I was researching various places for this week. What first drew my eyes to these two guys blog, Yaya and Lloyd, was the format. It looks small, but has lots of content. It’s neatly setup, but includes TONS of different countries, pictures, recommendations, and entries from their travels. To…

Day 80

Short term goal: 100 Days Long term goal: 186 days (6 months) Miles run this week: 16.5 Total miles run/walked in the challenge: 231.5 For the last several months I have been long-distance-dating a guy. Long story short, lots of traveling back, forth, and in between. Since I’ve started the streak, this has meant that…

Explore the United States! (pt. 4) History

…And what would a blog about the United States be without a little history? I love using songs to memorize lists of facts (for example, the history of the US). If the same goes for you, then this is a fantastic way to brush off those cobwebs! I ran across this explanation of the Constitution’s…

Explore the United States! (pt. 3) Books

This is my favorite part! My family can tell you that the first thing I pack when going on a trip are the books. That’s right, plural. I need at least two, and in some cases three. The reason? One e-book, one paperback, and sometimes the third if I’m still in the middle of one….

Explore the United States! (pt. 2) Food

What road trip (no matter how short!) is complete without yummy food? For me, books would be number one, but we’ll cover that topic tomorrow! 😉 As you travel into the great unknown, or revisit some familiar stomping ground, wouldn’t it be more fun (not to mention, delicious) to find some hidden jewel of a…

Explore the United States! (pt. 1) Cities

In my attempt to have a little more continuity within my blog, I’m going to try something new. Each week is going to focus on a particular topic, and be short snippets investigating that topic. We’ll see how this goes, and if I need to change this back to how I wrote it originally, that’s…

Day 73

Short term goal: 100 Days Long term goal: 186 days (6 months) Miles run this week: 22 Total miles run/walked in the challenge: 215 (over 200! yay!) For those interested in world travel and marathons, this is for you! I have never yet run a full marathon, but this is great inspiration! Now I need…

Loitering in Literature!

As you might have seen from my Goodreads widget on the bottom, right-hand corner of my homepage, I really like reading! This was one of the reasons I started an online book club. It has always been relaxing for me, and was also a way for me to get out of my own world and experience…

Sharing Saturday–The Coffeetographer

As you might have noticed from several of my recent posts on SS, I really enjoy seeing other people’s photography. I have never even attempted this talent, but I love so much enjoying the fruit of other people’s labors (at least pertaining to this aspect of beauty!). Today I am focusing on COFFEE.   That’s right….

Summer is ALMOST Here!–Beach Reads 2017

In a couple weeks I will be headed to the beach, so I thought I’d share a couple of the books that I might just have to stuff in my bag. My weakness 🙂 I KNOW that I will bring at least three books for the week, because I never know what genre I will…
