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!

march madness

i have come to find the madness of life happens far beyond march. that said, when we really think about it, lifes madness is a gift, right? i mean that in a "take the good with the bad" kind of way, not so much that i love the madness.

i live in madness. all the time. i love so many things about NYC - but sometimes, those same things are the things that sending me screaming into my pillow or heading out of town at a moments notice.

take this past weekend. i had had enough of NYC - sleepless nights, work stress and a nagging running injury. it was one of my best childhood friends birthdays, so i hopped on a train for a 3.5 hour ride to newport for an incredible night filled with endless prosecco and bread, birthday cake and wonderful memories and laughs, i returned to NYC 24 hours later (after a 5 hour wi-fi less ride) a better person. sure, the ride back was brutal - but the sore abs and messy hair reminded me that it was exactly what life is about.

madness, baby. may it las…

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 :)
