A Boat Time


As of late, we've been making a habit of walking most mornings.  Even though we live eight blocks from the lake, we have hardly ever taken advantage of its' proximity.  I think this is partially because the city charges $8 for you to get in, and partly because we've just not pushed ourselves to do it.  Well recently,

My INFJ Personality Type - Part I

* This post was written amongst a lot of reading over at 16personalities, and Introvert, Dear.  
These are some lovely resources, and some ideas came from them.  Go check them out for some more personality insights!

Imperfectly Perfect for Us


Hey there everybody!  As you might already know, my fiancee Andrew and I have been very much into the weekly Blue Apron box we get.  We love the fresh ingredients and fun recipes.  We love cooking too, so we really love having the Blue Apron box to ground our meals for the week.  It takes so much of the legwork out of grocery shopping and meal planning so that we can focus more of our energy on our day to day lives. Not only that, but it makes our grocery bill more predictable. 

As wonderful as Blue Apron is, we still do have other meals to be eating throughout the week.  Recently I discovered another great food box delivery program that we have adopted in addition to Blue Apron from one of our neighbors in our apartment building.  This lovely gem is the Imperfect Produce Box.  And it is full of LOVE.  <3 p="">

My Summer Shoe Recs


Summer is (almost) here, and this marks the time for fun in the sun, lounging at the beach, and feeling that summer grass between your toes.  We throw on our flip-flops and head to the pool, or
grab your flats
