Smoothies and Plastic

For as much as I hate to take advice from Dr Oz, I had to give his little soapbox about the dangers of plastics a tiiiiiny listen.  Long story short it’s not only Dr. Oz who preaches about how consuming anything from plastic will probably give you cancer…

Great Falls and the C&O Canal Towpath

For as much as I would have adored a snow day this year, the weather in DC has been pretty amazing this winter.  As I was driving home from work today, I noticed that some trees are starting to blossom…  It’s FEBRUARY.  I’m scheduled to…

Wanderlust Wednesdays: Austria

A bunch of my blog archives from my old site (which can be found here) talk about the most life-changing experience ever: my semester abroad.  While I have plenty of gripe about with my darling alma mater, the experience of living in a 14th century Carthusian Monastery in the…

Wanderlust Wednesdays: Ireland

Last summer’s European vacation started with a quick trip to Ireland… No offense to the many lads and lassies out there, but I had heard such mixed reviews about Ireland that I didn’t know if I was going to like it..  Rest assured, I looooooooooooved…

Galentine’s Day

In honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, I thought I would take a moment to give a little shoutout to the ladies who add so much sugar and spice and everything nice to my life.  This is not, of course, a knock on men…  My love life is…
