indepence day

as we approach july 4th, i cant help but think back a year ago when i was spending the 4th down in huntington beach, ca. ive thought about this a lot throughout the year, thinking about my year in LA verus my year (so far) in NYC.

im pretty happy that ive experienced life on both coasts. while i think im done with cali for a while, at least if i had to set a plan, i am happy i did it. my life is back east, and new york has been magic to my life. i get why it isnt for everyone...but it is for me. 

there is an energy here that is truly incredible. and the boys...whoa. east coast boys are so different than west coast boys, its pretty hilarious. though i do dig both, i am happy with my east coast options at the moment.

i am gearing up to move into midtown and out of brooklyn at the end of the summer. im moving to hells kitchen with 4 girls. yes, you can help, thanks for offering :)

two different cities, two different years. same person, crazy different experiences. i wish things could have turned out different with aaron, but i guess timing was off or something?! :) haha.

ok ok im babbling. im thinking about what i should do with my hair when i head home this month (i know, soooo important), im thinking about how great it will be to have monday off, and im thinking about boys. boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys boys.

ill be back later when i can focus. this is ridiculous.

summer OUT / fall IN

And just like that, summer sixteen is over. Hello fall! While I love nothing more than heading out for some miles in the kind of weather that makes it hard to breathe, makes you sweat more than you thought was humanly possible and leaves you a bit red in the face, I equally love the crispness of fall mornings, the smell of fall in the air and apple picking!
Ok, I’ve never actually gone apple picking. I’ve dreamed about it. Glanced at pictures of it. Hoped I would do it. Friends never seemed to want to go – and the boyfriend thing has been a fleeting item on the to-do list. Well, its happening this weekend! Sunday. Sinuses, weather, and whatever else, keep it together. This girl wants to go apple picking! 
Fall sixteen has already gotten off to a busy – and celebratory – start. Mom and bill got married (!!!) which made me really emotional and nostalgic. It was a beautiful weekend and definitely cemented how much I want a love of my own. Been a tough go though – I mean, its supposed to …

2013: a year in review. so far

today is february 22nd.we are already almost 2/12 of the way through 2013. i realize that line may sound uber cheesy, but seriously, time fucking flies.


2013 has definitely been a cool year. hard, confusing, sad and stressful, but certainly cool. parts of it have also been special, funny, amazing and sweet. all of that emotion in 2 months? hey man, im a girl. were dramtaic.



ive got high hopes for the rest of the year. there are a few running races in the books, with more to be added im sure. there will be some travel...im heading to see my besties in chicago and boston and bro in NC to name a few. im hoping there is a trip to somewhere warm in the near future...i have no interest in resembling a vampire...that shit has been overexposed already.

the moment hasnt happened to me yet where i go to my bank account and theres an accidental million dollars. regardless i take my dads advice to heart..."hil, never miss an opportunity you really want simply because of money". look, i…

break a sweat - even when youd rather do ANYTHING but.

there is only one way to begin the difficult journey of the holiday sugar detox: break a sweat. 

miraculously i didnt miss a day over the holidays to break a sweat -- but that really just means i got up extra early or ran when people were napping (i.e. full and feeling gross) so not all of my holiday miles or squats were pretty. or felt particular good.

BUT, i laced up and got out there -- or followed along to a dailyburn workout. i kept telling myself i could slow down or take it easier, but shit, im doing a workout.

so basically, what they say is true. no matter how slow you go, youre still lapping everyone on the couch. go get in a good sweat, then reward yourself with some couch time :)
