One of my favorite things about living in Chicago is that friends are always anxious to stop by and play for a weekend. This weekend I hosted four of my OU besties: Ashley, Mike, Libby, and Jay (pictured left to right). Note: They may be referred to as Addie, Mitch, Lana & Jordan- which became their … Continue reading weekend shenanigans with addie, mitch, lana, jordan & kendall
This may be the shortest post I've ever written, but I really cannot stay to chat tonight. Things have busy, but what else is new? Anyways, today/tonight i got to spend some time with my friend, Michelle, and the adorable little Max (her son) and I feel like I cannot go to bed tonight without … Continue reading sometimes you just know
It's no secret on this blog...last week was not my week. Five full days of being an emotional wreck- yep, that was me. But I'm happy to report that those have come & gone (at least for now). I won't lie, I woke up on Saturday still feeling blah, even nearly canceling on a friend's … Continue reading secret to life: let your friends be there for you (too).
He asked me if I was okay, and after a few minutes of hesitation and one attempt at a lie I wrote back, "No...but I just wanted you to distract me." This was the truth. Of course he called me back, even though I really didn't need him to. He asked what was going on and … Continue reading i’ll be honest with you and you’ll be honest with me.
Last night while finishing my post, preparing my grad program application, and watching my daily fix of Ellen, I dodged text after text from my dear friend, Mike. I love him, I really do...but he was driving me a little crazy with all the texting. Now I really do enjoy helping my boys out when it … Continue reading friends: is there such a thing as having too many?
For the second time this week, I found myself lost in thought sitting at a table amongst friends- new & old. While the places and faces were none of the same on Monday and Friday night, the thought was: Why am I not living in Ohio? Both nights, as well as Thursday night with two of … Continue reading they say, one day you’ll look out your door and you’ll find you’re right where you belong. in that moment, you’ll know love so sweet and that feeling you’ve known it all along.
Me: "I feel like I can be myself." Julie: "That's how you should always feel." For those of you who don't yet know her, Meet Julie. The beautiful friend I made during my freshman year at Kent State and one of my dear Ohio ladies that dreams about our joint-return to Columbus...one day (maybe)- and this … Continue reading friends say the words your heart says, but the difference is you like the sound of your friends’ voices better than your own.
Before I knew it my cell phone alarm was yelling at me (to get up). 8:00 am never felt so early in my life, but I guess that's what happens when you (attempt to) sleep on a bus the night before and go to bed around 3:30 am the night before. Knowing that a morning … 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. (part two)
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. (part one)
Yesterday was a very long day. The alarm went off at 4 am and I think finally shut my bedroom light off around midnight. Those hours may or may not paint a clear-enough picture, but like I said, "It was a very long day." Both a good day and maybe a bad day (at parts); … Continue reading you think you’re lost, but you’re not lost. you’re not alone.
