i had the time of my life and i’ve never felt this way before. and i swear this is true, and i owe it all to you. (part one)

A.MAY.ZING.  That is the only way to describe this past weekend's road trip back to Columbus, OH.  Exhausted, I'm sitting here debating whether to let my tired mind ramble on and on about the festivities or simply write: This weekend was, by far, (one of) the best weekend I've ever had in Columbus.  Let me reinstate … Continue reading i had the time of my life and i’ve never felt this way before. and i swear this is true, and i owe it all to you.

morning coffee with the macs

Good morning, and good morning indeed.  I'm a little confused what time it is since half of the clocks/phones/laptops have Eastern Time (aka Ohio, Michigan or New York Time- as we're calling it) and others have Central Time (aka Chicago or Indiana Time).  So yeah, this is why it's best to just live carefree this entire … Continue reading morning coffee with the macs

you’ll be the prince and i’ll be the princess. it’s a love story, baby just say yes.

The Princess has officially married her Prince Charming.  The Princess, formerly known as Kristin Young, is now Mrs. Kristin Comyns.  Congratulations to Kristin and Jim Comyns!  What an A.MAY.ZING. wedding!  Now Kristin is one of my best friends and I have known Jim for 3 years now, so of course it meant a lot to … Continue reading you’ll be the prince and i’ll be the princess. it’s a love story, baby just say yes.

happy wedding day to the beautiful, kristin young

It's a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding for the beautiful bride-to-be, my friend and partner-in-crime, Kristin.  It's been a great weekend here in Columbus so far and the best is yet to come.  I will have many stories and pictures to share over the next few days...promise.  It's felt so great to be back … Continue reading happy wedding day to the beautiful, kristin young

before i close my eyes

I wasn't sure where to begin, but this quote captures how I feel about my weekend in Columbus with a group of the most A.MAY.ZING. girls in the world (Kristin, Ruth, Sarah, Carrie, Jen) and their lovely families.  Fortunately for me,  these are only a few of the beautiful friends (and extended families) that I feel this … Continue reading before i close my eyes

my heart is in ohio

Somehow I made it back to Chicago after what seemed like the longest Megabus ride ever.  Oh well.  I made it, but unfortunately I had to leave my friends back in Columbus.   Let me first say that all my expectations were exceeded and I had a truly A.MAY.ZING. weekend.  Where do I even begin?  For … Continue reading my heart is in ohio

ohio, i’ll be home again

Sadly the day has come for me to hop on Megabus and venture back to Chicago.  I just wanted to take a minute to say that it's been a truly fantastic weekend, which I'll write more about later.  Yes, I know, it deserves an official..... A.MAY.ZING. In the shower this morning I thought of this song.  … Continue reading ohio, i’ll be home again

one down, one to go

I just got home from taking the final exam for my online Human Relations course- which made me an OU student again.  While I'm sorry to see it end because I absolutely loved it (!), I am happy to have a portion of my life back as well as a lot more time.  Additionally, I'm also … Continue reading one down, one to go

the only sober girl in chicago

One reason why I'll always love Columbus, Ohio is that they celebrate St. Patrick's Day ON St. Patrick's Day.  None of this weekend before bullshit.  It's March 17th, no matter what day of the week it falls on.  Now I understand that a parade is best to be held on a weekend, but noticing all … Continue reading the only sober girl in chicago
