I started this blog as a way to stay connected with my family and friends since we have moved three times in the last four years. I love to throw parties, travel, and spend time with my family trying new recipes, attempting to craft, etc. I am passionate about writing and I have a note taped up that says: “Write Something Today.”

Running has been my release and escape for over ten years. During this time, I’ve trained for dozens of races, bought at least 30 pairs of running shoes, dealt with multiple injuries, and adjusted to running with a jog stroller and a squealing toddler.

I married my husband Todd on 6-2-12. I am from Colorado and Todd grew up in Utah. Todd graduated with his Masters in Healthcare Administration from UNC (GO HEELS!) in May of 2016 and we relocated to Houston for a year-long fellowship. Now we are back in Cary, NC and loving it!

In August 2015 we welcomed our son, Theodore Beryl Hardy into the world. He’s the sweetest, wildest boy and we are crazy about him. He has my whole heart and my undivided attention all day long. In April 2018 we will be welcoming another baby BOY into the family!

We love trying new things, seeing new places, and tasting new foods. Life’s fast pace (and Theo) keeps us on our toes, but we are enjoying the ride!

I love to be inspired by what others do and create, and I hope that my online journal of our life can inspire and entertain you.
