Why Your 30s are WAY Better than Your 20s

I can remember the night before my 29th birthday vividly.  My friend, who’s two years older than me almost to the day, was channeling her inner therapist while I sobbed about the end of my 20s being in sight.  I felt like I had wasted the decade (which…

Sharp Rock Winery

I named my blog what I named it for a reason.  Few things I enjoy more than a nice morning hike out in the Shenandoah, followed by an afternoon of wine drinking and cheese eating.  Call me Basic all you want, it’s pretty amazing.  Virginia Wine County is…

Recent Book Reviews

Self-proclaimed book worm here.  I have to admit that 100% of my “reading” lately has been audiobooks..  Things have been very busy, but that does not give me an excuse to stop reading! I don’t know what’s  been with me lately, but the…

A Day at the Farm

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!  OK, I’m writing this a bit preemptively, so it’s not quite Friday in my world, but when this post goes live, it will be.  So, again, HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Last weekend, Jim and I ventured out to Great Country Farms in the gorgeous Bluemont, VA…

Wag- My New Favorite App (+My Side Hustle)

**Use my code Brittany3203 for $20 off your first walk!!** I noticed recently I have a tendency to essentially scream things I love from the rooftops.  Wag is one of those things.. The app is BRILLIANT, and I’m so mad I didn’t think of it myself…

Remembering

Gosh, it seems like yesterday. I had just begun my sophomore year at Padua Franciscan High School in Cleveland and was sitting in the dingy, cold cafeteria for study hall when the lunch ladies came running out of the school kitchen.  In shock, everyone stared at the TVs that lined…

Life Lately- Summer 2017

This summer was amazing, and I’m so glad it’s over.  While I relish in the many opportunities to get away, visit family, and catch up with old friends, I ADORE a regular schedule.  Since I’m back in said regular schedule, I thought I would…

1 Day At Put-in-Bay

Few things I enjoy more than promoting Ohio tourism.  As a native who’s been living away for the past nine years, the affection for my home state has only increased.  Not only is Ohio great because there are so many places that are absolutely gorgeous, but it&#8217…

What’s Up Wednesday

It’s official.  I absolutely suck at keeping a schedule during the summer.  While I relish in the opportunity to travel, sleep in, and visit my parents, I thrive so much more when my schedule (i.e. when school is back in session) is predictable.  When I know that…

Watermelon 1st Birthday Party

Almost two years ago now, my dear friend from college called to tell me she was pregnant.  I was walking down a neighborhood street of D.C. on an evening that couldn’t make its mind up as to whether it wanted to still be summer, or to start…
