On Saturday, I ran the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure here in Richmond, VA. As everyone knows, with my sister’s fight, breast cancer is a cause I will support to no end, so it seemed like fate that Alex’s mom used to work for Susan G. Komen and is one of the race […]


You know when you have several months of…. well, not the best fortune? And you try not to dwell on things not going your way, trudging on through, waiting patiently for improvements? As you know, the last year was a tough one, getting laid off, living in a new city, and feeling very alone. I […]


I think my favorite kinda posts these days are the ones I spend catching up with all of you. Whatcha been up to the past few weeks? Oh, me? I’ve been riding around Richmond in a pedal powered party bike. Well, sorta. This was for a commercial for the UCI Road World Championship Bike Race […]


Simply The Best

March 23, 2015 · 19 comments

Yesterday was simply the best. My Pure Barre studio hosted an #AMYSTRONG class to benefit my sister in her second fight against breast cancer. We had a completely full house, and the energy was absolutely amazing. I was so frazzled and emotionally overwhelmed, I’m certain I was spinning around like The Tasmanian Devil as I […]


Life’s been a little crazy. I’ve been flying from one thing to the next… quite literally. Check out the above video clips for a glimpse of the VA Bloggers aerial yoga class from this weekend! It was really fun to pretend I was in the circus for about an hour. You can see Brittany and […]


The Power of Positivity

My sister has breast cancer. Again. If you recall, when Amy was 36, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had a double mastectomy, figuring it was the safest course of action for her future. My friend Gracie posted a great breast cancer awareness series this past October, and Amy was one of the post […]


This post is going to be a ginormous update full of A.D.D. I know I’ve been M.I.A., but I swear, I have good excuses. 🙂 One. I’m OFFICIALLY self-hosted now! Thanks to Seth @ Boy Meets Food (thank you for the rec, Julie, he was awesome), I’m now with Bluehost and available at Ah […]


Thankful Updates

I can’t describe to you all how much your thoughts, prayers, and comments touched the hearts of my sister, my family, and me. I’m so happy to report that Amy is smiling big from the hospital recovery room. Why is she smiling so big, do you ask (other than all those pain meds ;)) Amy […]


Today, my family lost a wonderful grandpa, father, and great-grandpa. We were all so sad to receive the news of Grandpa’s stroke over the weekend. He hung on like a trooper until early this morning. My grandpa joined the group of angels watching over my sister this morning for her breast cancer surgery. After my […]


People generally say good things come in three. So do bad things. Last week, my family got some news that was hard to swallow. My sister, Amy, has breast cancer. 2011 has been a rough year for me with my recent events, but it’s been especially hard on my family. Namely, my dad and my […]
