I'll be back

10 March 2014

Hi, friends. I know I've been absent the past couple of weeks, but truth be told, I just haven't had the time to blog or be a good blogger friend. I'm going to give myself some time to get my schedule a bit more balanced, and when that happens, I'll be back! Until then, if you're looking for reading material take a peek at the blogs and sites under the Inspiration tab (here).

Life lately

24 February 2014
Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

Lately, I have been laying low as I get over a nasty cold, enjoying fresh flowers from James, and watching House of Cards and the Olympics pretty much every night.

And this weekend, we finally replaced my childhood desk with a grown-up sized desk and I love it! We're saving my old desk set for the future since it is lovely and good quality, but if I had hit my knee trying to sit down or get up from that desk one more time, I was going to lose it. 

I'll share more details and photos once I have had a chance to buy a few pieces, like a desk lamp. Have a great week!

London calling

20 February 2014

I referenced a while back that I had something exciting in the works and I'm happy to finally share it with you...

I will be starting an Executive Master's in Management program at the London School of Economics (LSE) in August! It's a part-time, module-based program with 1-2 weeks of all-day classes at a time (vs. night and weekend classes).  I won't be relocating to London, but I will be spending time there, Singapore and Turkey for classes, and taking advantage of traveling to places like Paris and Amsterdam when I can.

I have been thinking about pursuing an advanced degree for years and I finally found the right program at the right school. It's going to be an intense 1.5 years balancing school with my job, but I couldn't be more excited. I'll be sure to share my travel adventures with you and please fill me in: what are your favorite parts of London?

Beating the winter blues with colorful workout gear

17 February 2014
This Chicago winter has been so cold and so long that I pretty much want to hibernate until summer.

Sticking to a workout regimen can be incredibly difficult in freezing temps and sloppy weather, but as cheesy as it sounds, having bright, colorful gear and workouts you can get excited about just might help you beat the winter blues and stick to your exercise goals.

Staying motivated

Adventure.

12 February 2014

Hi, friends! Sorry for my absence, but between work and a few days off, I haven't had a chance to write. 

We headed out to California to visit a dear friend and to ski at Mammoth Mountain. It was a great weekend and I loved having the chance to catch up with good friends and to embrace my one word: Adventure.
