I know we’re a bit behind schedule, things have been a bit crazy since both Ann and I are in New York this week! Usually this would be a Monday blog, but we Tuesday work too. I’m super excited for my New York trip, which I’ll blog about later on next week. In the meantime, though, this week is about living with your significant other.
My boyfriend, Tomas, is on a flight back from Italy as we speak, making a quick stop in Montana before coming down here next week. Now, this will be our third summer in a row living together, and we hope to permanently live together as soon as he graduates from MSU. Living with your SO can be hard, but in my opinion, it is the best thing ever. I love the summer time specifically for that reason, because living with Tomas is a true joy. Hopefully these helpful tips below will help you also find joy in living with your SO!

Salutations Ramblers! Anyone remember what book/ movie that’s from? That’s definitely a blast from the past, am I right? Before we begin, I want to apologize for posting this blog post behind schedule! I know this was supposed to be up yesterday, but you know, life happens. Anyhoo, today I’m going to list some very aesthetic places that are a blast from the past! Since I have spent a lot of time in Colorado and am continuing to explore Montréal, I will be including some places from both areas!

Happy Earth Day, Ramblers!
Please remember to do your part to take care of our planet. Even the smallest of things can make a large impact. I’m talking one meat-less meal a week, recycling, carpooling a few times to work, and planting more flowers. That seems pretty easy, right? You could also donate to an environmental cause! I donated to the Nature Conversancy today, since they’re matching all donations in support of Earth Day.
Sorry to get all tree-hugger preacher on you, but the environment is super important to me. And honestly, it should be super important to YOU too because we literally only have one home, and once that’s gone, it’s gone forever. Anyways, today’s blog is about something near and dear to my heart that is indeed related to our beautiful planet…and that is top National Parks to visit for your summer bucket list.

Hello Ramblers! Anne here to give you some birthday wisdom now that I’ve turned 22 haha. I don’t know what it is about turning 22, but it feels like I’m more of a real adult now and that I should have my life together. Well, I do feel like a real adult, but I definitely still don’t feel like I have my shit together most days. Through the ups and downs that these 22 years have brought me, though, I have learned a couple things that help me stay happy and thriving. So, today, I will be sharing 22 little mottos to live your life by and, hopefully, make it easier.

Happy Spring, and happy birthday season for Anne and me over here! Along with us, many of our friends have birthdays coming up within the next few weeks, so it’s often a time that the money is low but the celebrations are high. In terms of best gifts to get your girl friends, 20 something pals, or for those friends who are about to graduate, I got you! See below and let me know what you think in the comments.

Howdy Ramblers! I hope everyone’s week is going well! I turned in my biggest assignment of the semester so I feel a little bit less stressed. I still have a ton of assignments and a final exam I’m not ready for, but at least it’s one more thing to check off the to-do list. I only have three more weeks until I am completely done with school and I cannot wait! Even though I’ve been working out pretty much everyday, I haven’t had time to go for a run outside in so long! Now that the weather is warming up (hopefully) and that school is coming to an end, I’m ready to get back into running my 10k’s and maybe even sign up for some future races!
So how do you get ready for a race so that you can hit your goal? Well, I figured I’d share a few tips so we can get ready together y’all!

So, today’s blog was supposed to be on running my first 5k, but well...time got away from me and I haven’t had the chance to sign up for one yet. I know, I know, no excuses, but to be fair I wasn’t expecting life to get as busy as it has! With the demands of working, wisdom teeth surgery, and a trip down to Jamaica, it put my running goals on pause. But that’s alright, because we’re jumping back into it, and the important thing is progress!

Happy Spring, Ramblers! I know it’s officially been Spring since March 20th, but there’s something about April that just makes everything seem so much more like Spring. The end of the semester is coming up, the layers of jackets are slowly coming off, and my motivation to keep working on all those New Year’s resolutions is coming back stronger than ever. As exciting as April is, though, it is also very, very busy time with all the final exams, assignments, social events, birthdays (there are a lot of April babies, me included), and everything in between. One thing that keeps me calm during all this chaos is Sping cleaning, mentally and in the house!
