an update on my life

an update on my life
As soon as my life gets a little bit hectic, my tiny little blog is the first thing to get ignored. I'm a terrible blogger, I've decided. But that won't stop me from trying! Here's what I've been up to.. 1. I started two exciting new jobs! Overall, I'm working about 40-45hrs/week so my schedule is ...

feed a cold

feed a cold
It's been a while since I have posted and for that, I apologize. Life has been a little crazy recently - I ended my position at a local restaurant and am now working for a local photographer in hopes of absorbing and learning everything & anything. Needless to say, I've been a little stressed. ...

pretty lights & pretty music – The Anatomy of Frank

pretty lights & pretty music – The Anatomy of Frank
I've gotten to know The Anatomy of Frank quite well. Chris has been a member since 2010 and they've become a part of the family. They rehearse in our apartment and I'll occasionally bring them food from the restaurant (twenty-something year old guys wi...

moments in the Blue Ridge

moments in the Blue Ridge
It's been gorgeous in Central Virginia and today was just one of those days where you couldn't not be in the sunlight . Chris and I decided to visit a spot in the Blue Ridge that we hadn't been to in about two years and I'm glad we did. We sometimes forget the calming effect that being outdoors and ...

my love affair

my love affair
I must confess. I've been having an affair. With my iPhone. Phew. There, I said it. My poor little DSLR must hate me. But it's just too bulky for me to take everywhere! My iPhone is sleek and adaptable. It has allowed me to just capture moments and memories without having to fiddle with the ISO, sh...

a girl’s best friend
I didn't grow up with pets and my first "pets" were beetles (not kidding). I had fish when I was little but the poor things never lasted very long. It wasn't until high school that my parents finally allowed me to get a cat (and now he's replaced me in the family tree). Animals don't judge, they do...

beet & apple faux-slaw

beet & apple faux-slaw
A spark of ingenuity hit me last week while we were cooking up some beef tongue tacos (don't hate - lengua is delicious). We just started receiving our winter CSA share from Horse and Buggy Produce and in an effort to use up as much as we...

it’s a new year!

it’s a new year!
I hit the big TWO-FOUR last week so I'm officially a big girl. Here's an update on what I've been up to!
  • Food - I really don't like the word "diet" but the way I eat is mostly paleo. I'm avoiding dairy whenever possible because I'm lactose-intolerant and it gives me acne (and feeling like ...

local, seasonal, delicious

local, seasonal, delicious
This past Saturday was the last Charlottesville City Farmers' Market that I will attend for the year. From April until December, I did not miss a Saturday (aside from the time I was in Guatemala). I experienced an entire season of local...
