happy valentines day!

ahh yes the day we celebrate love. 

i think my best valentine to date still remains freshmen year in college. he was the best.BEST.
the worst valentine i have had to date was from 2009. all know the story...and the boy.

i get annoyed when people complain that its a hallmark holiday and its too commercial. relax people...its fun to buy into cutesy love things and candy hearts (however, i draw the line at plush bears at duane reade). im sorry, but NO. men i saw in line there last night...horrible taste. im sure youre lovely people, but im dissapointed.

i invite a reason for the population to buy into a theme...its fun! a reason to say i love you, eat chocolate and smile at everyone. enjoy it and drop the cynic inside yourself. you need to do some soul searching if you really concern yourself that something like valentines day is too commercial, im sorry.

i know im a day late...i was busy helping cupid spread the love. no, really i was slaving away at work...full time job and helping my boss with her wedding is CRAZY! kinda makes me smile at the possibility ill one day do it tho. maybe? 

happy love day all. you mean so much to me and i am so lucky to have you in my life :) xoxo

i hope you bought into the hoopla that is valentines day and had fun with it...that is the point afterall!

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 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 :)
