Three Easy + Delicious Dishes I’ve Made Recently: a breakfast, lunch + dinner

5:50 a.m. Good morning! How are you? (Aside from the emotions of yesterday, which I’m assuming are excited and hopeful). I've got my coffee and I'm ready for this Thursday! Yesterday's sunrise run. The best. Are you tired but also wired because you stayed up later than normal watching TikToks until you couldn’t keep your …

One Month at my parents’ house + A Very Merry Christmas

5:44 a.m. After this cup (several cups) of coffee and after my morning run around the neighborhood (I’m running again!) and after my dad takes my car to the Honda dealer to get checked out because he’s neurotic, I’m making the long and painful drive back to Colorado.

When I’m injured, sometimes I completely forget what …

Non-Election Content: Fresh bread, New books + A sunset ride

A Totally Cloudless Weekend in Boulder: Saturday running and Sunday riding

Man, I really can’t believe what’s happening with all the fires on the west coast. All the people who have been affected, displaced, injured, etc. I think I’m even more sensitive and aware of the situation because we got a tiny taste of it this summer when smoke descended on our town due to the …

A Friday Edition of updates + things: my favorite meal this week and new podcasts

Happy Friday from me and a cup of instant coffee. You read that right. I have totally been making instant coffee every morning instead of a pot of drip coffee as if I have somewhere to be every day in a hurry. I don’t. Our company has been working from home since the middle of …
