Life in Oz

Four years ago I was on a road trip, traveling along the east coast of Australia from Cairns to Sydney! As soon as I returned to Sydney, I kicked off my job search. I wrote the following post a few weeks after landing a job, publishing it elsewhere. Since it hasn’t been online for a […]

Life in Virginia

It’s been a while since the last post about the journey to identify my mysterious health issues. After sharing two posts about the GAPS diet over the summer, I realized how much I wanted to continue writing about my health issues — what I’m doing to get to the bottom of them and what I’m […]

USA travel

My entire family LOVES One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek. I have my two younger sisters to thank for both shows. During my second year of grad school, I procrastinated on writing my thesis by watching back-to-back episodes of TV shows during winter break. I didn’t think I’d be interested in either show, but with […]

USA travel

Although I haven’t been out of the country in 2014, I’ve traveled three times domestically and haven’t yet shared photos or talked about those trips! In February, I flew to San Francisco to spend a long weekend with my travel partner and best friend Nicole. I hadn’t seen her since my May 2013 wedding, so […]

Bucket list achievement | My first skydive

Bucket list achievement | My first skydive

Five years ago I celebrated one of my biggest bucket list achievements. How I never managed to write about it in the 4+ years I’ve had this blog, I don’t know. But we’re approaching the end of summer, and as I’ve spent the afternoon reminiscing about my first skydiving experience, I thought I’d share some […]

Confession: I’ve been really Oz-sick lately. It’s been over three years since I returned to the USA after living in Australia for a year, and I never thought I’d go that long without a return trip. Thankfully my girl Priya is currently in Australia on the Work and Holiday Visa, and I’m able to live […]

GAPS Intro Diet Preparation

4 Comments | 21 July 2014

Health & Wellness

Earlier this month I shared that I’d recently started the GAPS diet in an effort to help heal my GI tract. Before starting GAPS, I compared it to similar diets that offer holistic approaches to treating food sensitivities, digestive issues, and other health concerns. I’m so glad that I spent HOURS reading blogs, locating recipes, […]

What is the GAPS diet and how can it help?

Three months ago I shared I was embarking on a new adventure. I wasn’t traveling to a new destination (I wish!). I wasn’t following up my first half marathon with a marathon (HA!). Instead, I was planning on starting the GAPS diet. I hoped that this holistic approach to health would help heal some long […]

Life in Virginia

Hello, friends. It’s been a while. This is my first blog post of 2014. THE FIRST. I’m breaking an almost 4-month silence on the blog (finally!) to share where I’ve been all this time. While I’ve mostly been away for not-so-fun reasons, I’m blessed to have enjoyed some positive experiences too. Gav and I spent […]
