Blossoming in my Late 30’s

Something has shifted in me. A few days into the New Year, I turned 39. It was rather uneventful which was nice. I spent the evening with my little family over sushi and was in bed by 8pm because we have a baby and I have...

The workout I’m loving to hate

But nothing feels better than that post-workout “sore, never walking/picking anything up again” feeling. The amount of stress released alone makes every minute of torture worth it. However, those aren’t the only reasons I workout.

Midnight Musings

In order to keep myself awake I’ve been compiling list of things “to do” when no one else in the world seems awake. Simply getting up and turning on the light does not work anymore (plus who would want to wake up my darling husband).
