Back in the day, I used to be part of a work team that was closer than closest can be. We went to each other’s weddings, we disagreed (with passion), we rode trains, planes and automobiles together, we acted like clowns, we saw success again and again…we had a good thing going. We were a… Read More Eight Hugs
I’ve been pushing myself a little hard with the running thing. With the Airbnb Brooklyn Half just a few weeks away, which is my very first half marathon and my very first running anything, the thought of struggling through it or not finishing it has scared the bejeezus out of me. To help me out… Read More Gut Check
My journey hasn’t been the easiest. But I’ve made it my mission to keep laughing, loving, learning, living. Being perfectly imperfect and unapologetically Fi. And guess what’s starting to happen? Things are beginning to just click.
I feel like I have so much to tell you. I’m having a really solid “yes” week and it’s only Wednesday. Sunday AM: Like the time I said “yes” to running 11 miles, which is just insane. I can’t believe I actually did that. Sunday PM: And when I said “no” to Sunday night blues and… Read More Brighter and Better

You guys. You’re not going to believe this. Ok, so I’ve been wearing my big girl pants for a few weeks now. I tossed the things I’ve been holding on to for far too long. I’m refinancing my very own Brooklyn apartment. I downloaded a budgeting app to help me with money management (yay Mint!). I installed… Read More Say “Yes” To You
Earlier this week, my dear friend, Nicolette, let me know she’d be in town and asked if I was free. I wasn’t free but here’s the thing: Nicolette was and has always been one of my favorites. We met while at UT (hook ’em!)–we still don’t know how or where–and well, it had been a… Read More Knock ‘Em Dead
It’s becoming clear to me how pursuing my passions bring out the best in me. How loving something so much can make me a better person. How being my super awkward self, the person I truly am, can make me feel amazing. It’s becoming clear to me how much this world has to offer and how much… Read More Be. Impressive.
The shit that makes your heart smile and your eyes glow…yeah, do that. Lots.
That moment you realize you might be getting it right. This weekend, I strayed a bit. Being home has come to mean laundry, bills, errands, chores, groceries (kidding, I don’t buy groceries). I wake up. Do the things. And then…ugh. So this past weekend, I changed it up. I skipped Dateline to hang with a… Read More Doing it Right
