Moving in Together and Other Big Life Changes

Photo by Patrick Perkins on Unsplash Well, y’all, we did it – two weeks ago today, we moved into an apartment! It’s a 660-square foot one-bedroom near the city that’s recently been renovated. There’s a coffee and a pastry shop walking distance from our apartment, which is also near a main road and lots of bus lines, and…

Sh*t Just Got Real

Well y’all, it’s happening: Ben and I are getting married! He proposed Sunday night, and I couldn’t stop saying yes.  Between the wedding (though it’s admittedly not for a year or so) and a certain medical procedure I need done, it’s time to get, and more importantly, stay committed to getting fit and losing weight….
