I’m surprised that it’s already been two years since I started blogging. A lot has happened, weddings, job changes, promotions, but this blog has always been there.

Fall Reading List: Fiction & Business Books You Need to Pick Up

I feel like it was just yesterday that I published my summer reading list. The change of season is the perfect time for a trip to Barnes & Noble, plus there’s nothing like cozy-ing up with a blanket and a hot cup of coffee and getting lost in a book as the leaves change. Although […]

My Favorite Metro Detroit Hiking Trails

This time of year is my favorite time to hit the trails. Once the weather starts to not get crazy hot and people start to clear out, that’s the best time to explore. Plus once fall hits, the colors start to change, and when you’re done you can get cider and donuts. Win, win. Even […]

Things I’ve Stopped Caring About

I’m not old, but I’m old enough. Old enough to realize that life is short, my time is valuable, and quality counts in regards to everything. There’s so many things I used to waste so much energy and effort over, that over the years have just grown too consuming to hold on to. I’ve cut […]
