There is nothing better than fro yo, even when it’s still cold outside. So when my mom, sister, and I wanted to spend some time together on a recent weekend, Yoba is the first place we thought of.
And they’ve made some changes – Fresh green wall and some new decor [...]
I don’t think Valentine’s Day will ever stop being a really sad time for my family because my father passed away February 14, 2011. I’m not a psychologist so I’m not sure if it’s healthy or a sign that I’m stuck firmly in denial, but I decided to make Valentine’s Day a little more fun [...]
Getting back to the normal flow of things and feeling like myself again has been a slow road since my injury. Here are some the of the ways I can tell things are getting a little better:
I’m hanging out with friends again here and there. One weekend while hanging out with Megan, [...]
I just wanted to post about Christmas this year because it was special in its own way and I want to remember it.
First, here’s a look at my decor. I love the way the tree looks and it’s such a heartbreak to put it away each year.
Also, no living [...]
My uncle and his girlfriend decided to throw a holiday party and even though I couldn’t indulge as much as I would have normally, I still had a blast spending time with my family and singing karaoke (even though my nasty cold made it really hard to sound even remotely good).

I guess this isn’t the proper forum to discuss the finer points of what happened to me last week but just know that I’m happy to be back to writing.
I was involved in an accident that left me with several injuries. I’ve been resting as much as possible with the best care possible from [...]
Every November on a weekend before Thanksgiving, my grandma has all of her grandchildren come over to help decorate the tree and make Christmas cookies. It doesn’t matter that I’m 25, tradition is tradition so I went over to help, too. I decided it would be a good idea to highlight some of [...]
Being as it’s already December, I figured I wouldn’t write about Thanksgiving this year, but I realized that I had a great time and pictures so why not? First of all, Rob and I went to Hasty Tasty for breakfast and I went a little overboard.
We normally have a lot [...]
Today would have been my dad’s 61st birthday. In a few hours, I would have called him at work to wish him a happy birthday and to sing to him as horribly off key as possible.
For the record, cancer blows. Cancer blows hard.
So I went through some pictures of my birthday party December [...]
When my uncle and his girlfriend invited my sister and I to go bowling with his girlfriend’s family for her daughter’s birthday, we were definitely set to go but I was absolutely not going to bowl. Sorry, no way is that going to happen. I remember being terrible at bowling and never really [...]
Welcome!I love Dayton, I've lived here for all of my 26 years and don't plan on settling anywhere else. I started this blog as a way to showcase the best of Dayton (as seen through my perspective) and also to share some of the things that occupy space in my mind, namely beauty, home decor, quotes, and various aspects of my life.
