Where have I been the past 18 months???

It's been a while, right?? I've been dealing with so much personally, professionally, and with family over the past year and a half and a great friend of mine (AW!!) reminded me how much I used to love blogging and so here I am!

So the important question-- where have I been the past 18 months? Perhaps I will share in pictures.....


I played the tinderella game for a period of time for the majority of 2015....

My sister got married so I planned her bachelorette and the vast majority of her wedding last summer...


I bought a house....
I became (even moreso) a workaholic when I went non-contract at my firm last summer...
I became heavily involved in legal professional and specialty Bar associations within NC.....
We adopted a new baby! Meet Lilly Patel!


She and Rusty love each other so much!





I love this one of the two of them SO MUCH!

I've become sort of a homebody and love staying at home, drinking wine and snuggling Rusty...

Annnnnnd I work. A lot. Maybe too much? What is "too much?"



Hopefully I can start making regular updates like before, definitely update the buttons at the top and post interesting things about life as a #ladylawyer in NC and all that entails!

Tuesday Thoughts: Channeling my inner Olivia Pope

I've been on a bit of a blogging hiatus but I'm definitely bringing back Tuesday Thoughts after a rough couple months of life...

SO, here are some of my thoughts on this delightful Tuesday evening:

Hello Old Friend....also, Tuesday Thoughts!

Well, this post is more than long overdue... a lot has gone on in the past 8 months.. I thought I'd return to the old blog with a fun Tuesday Thoughts post! I'm going to try and revisit the theme days I was posting last year but I've had to take a step back in my running and racing after some severe pain in my knees after my last half and other life happenings. I did end up running the Detroit International HM again this year but it was my only half for 2014 thus far and seems to be my only half at all for this year...BUT, that's for another time, tonight is for my thoughts on this insane Tuesday...

I wish people would learn this….clearly not to the level of Fitz&Liv but #srsly

I’ve learned I need to have standards for my own life and that isn’t being selfish or picky..

What I’m doing with my life these days..

I’m really sad a lot these days… just like Kelly.

I’m generally so exhausted these days this is how I react once I get home from work...

 I also started eating a lot of grilled cheeses… for breakfast, dinner, sometimes lunch… and I keep losing weight! YES LIFE!!!

Also I need wine in an IV like 24-7.


my current/long term favorite song.

Now, I can’t promise that I’ll be consistent in posting in the future but I’ll try whenever I get an inkling to post any life updates and definitely once I start running more races this spring/running season!
