Good Night

I keep writing sentences and deleting them. I would much rather write sentences and post them. But writing is harder than it looks, and it is only good if the writer is telling the truth. So here it is: It's late and I'm going to bed.

Party Throwing 101

Me: "That's the part we don't know how to do. We always end up with so much food."

Traditions

I feel like I say this again and again, but I think Stephanie Nielson is magic. I really enjoyed this post about her family's back-to-school feast. Makes me want to create some traditions of my own.

PS: Tell me if you have any favorites I could borrow.

Just A Number

Thinking of You

Dear Lizzie,

You know how some days are just not good days? I’m talking about the days when I know in my heart I would be of more service to the world if I stayed inside, under covers, away from the general population for at least 24 hours.

xo,
Christina

Pure Barre

The warm-up made me feel nauseated and the actual workout made me feel faint. I’m fine now, but I fear tomorrow and the day after even more. That’s when the soreness from my butt kicking workout will indeed kick my butt.
