Anchal Project
Inspires Goodness

I’ve always considered myself a fairly involved person. Growing up I went on mission trips with my church and did volunteer work. As I got older though it’s safe to say that want waned and self-importance and ignorance took its place. I blame it on the fact that I was young…

Visit Wyoming

The more time that I spend taking photos the more I realize that pictures more often than not don’t always do their subjects justice, and my recent trip to Wyoming made that more apparent than ever.

Coffee on Ice

Louisville gets a lot of things right, especially in the food and beverage world, except one thing: iced coffee, and it breaks my heart – truly.

Street Style

In full disclosure I spent the majority of the weekend playing Pokemon Go, so much so that I ended up walking 4.78 miles yesterday just to try and catch them all. Is the game silly? Totally. But is it tons of fun? 100% percent.

Thursday Things:
Go Freely

As we head into the second half of 2016 remember that you always have the freedom to go freely into what lies ahead, without fear or trepidation, because the only limits placed on life are the ones you place on yourself.  Hotels with history are always a personal favorite, especially when…

Put Together

Walked out the door this morning at 7:30 to head to this month’s Connecting Things event, and it was already over 80 degrees with 100% humidity. Needless to say I plan to work from home for the rest of the day and enjoy cranking my AC as low as it’ll…

Brussels and Brats

I’m sharing #SausageFamily in my life as part of a Johnsonville sponsored series for Socialstars™. Brussels Sprouts. One of my favorite vegetables, but also one of the few veggies that I’ve never tried my hand in making at home. I was convinced I wouldn’t be able to get that nice…

For the first time in a long, long time I spent the majority of my weekend around the house, and not just laying around the house mind you! But actually knocking everything that’d been on my to-do list for the last several weeks, possibly even a month or so. And…

When I was in the market for a new bed I also knew that it was high time to ditch my current bed frame, it was a behemoth and took up WAY too much space, and after toying with several ideas I decided on going with the simplest approach possible…

I’m finally (mostly) recovered from Sunday’s kayak trip down Blue River in Indiana, and while I’m still nursing a bit of a sunburn on my shoulders – I’m otherwise back to normal, even though it’s safe to say I’m moving a bit more slowly than usual so far this week.
