Last night, Jamie and I ran on the boardwalk and looked at the Christmas light show in the sand.

Until we got kicked off by the police and had to run on the strip instead. So we took running holiday card pictures.

always having to one-up me, huh?

And NOW, as you’re reading this, I’m en route to my old home.


Good ol’ Jers.

…to spend Thanksgiving with my “other family,” to see my old high school friends I haven’t seen in ages, to run a Turkey Trot 5k, and to hug a Pine tree.

little high school babies

I did grow up in the Pine Barrens, after all.

Hi there! I know this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work? I am completely new to running a blog however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

I’d say get a free wordpress blog and try it! :) really, it only takes up a lot of time if you allow it to. :)

Hey Alyssa,
Happy Thanksgiving!
I love your blog and I’ve been a reader for a while– I just started a new blog for girls in their twenties that’s some fitness, some travel, some random funny stuff on the internet, some shopping, generally whatever I’m finding fun.
Stop by and if you like it, I’d love a shout out, since I’m new and trying to spread the world.
<3 Jane
