the end and the beginning


I promise I am still alive and kickin’! I have been taking a blogging break for many reasons: relaxing for summer, getting ready for UDEL, and other things. ALSO… my internship at Rodale is over! It wasΒ  such a great learning experience and I met alot of knowledgeable people in the magazine and online world.

While it’s the end of my summer vacation and internship, it’s also the beginning of a new life at school! I will be in an apartment and meeting all new people. Not gonna lie…Β  I AM NERVOUS! BUT excited too πŸ™‚

Life’s been pretty good to me this summer. I saw beautiful things, had A LOT of fun times, and I notice positive changes in myself.

AND OF COURSE… ate great food πŸ™‚

My most recent creation: PUMPKIN PIE PARFAIT

canned pumpkin and vanilla Chobani layered with graham crackers!


I need to remember (and we all need to remember) that while summer is COMING to a close… IT’S NOT OVER YET! I’ll be going to NANTUCKET this weekend with DAVE ❀ LEAVING TOMORROW for a final summer beach trip πŸ™‚ 😦 πŸ™‚ AND I’ll be sure to have a fun bus ride with my new KINDLE

Question: what is your favorite memory of this summer??

I’ve had so many amazing memories that I can’t decide which one I like the best!! I’ll have to think about it…maybe they were all my favorite πŸ™‚ yeah lets go with that….

….And finally, my random peace of advice for the evening: Appreciate the beautiful people in your life. The people who help you out when you are down, the people who listen to you rant about silly issues, the people who are there for you when you really need them most. Even if it’s just one person. Having positive influences in your life can make you a happier person all around. πŸ™‚
