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!

Long time no see, Ramblers!
I took a much needed week off, sunning it up in Jamaica with the Gannett family. It was absolutely breathtaking and 100% needed to get me back in the right mindset to tackle Spring head on.
Springtime is one of my favorite times of the year. In the corporate world, we’re wrapping up Quarter One, and in the school world, the spring semester is coming to a finale. It’s time for that final push before summer, a rebirth so-to-speak of your best you. And “Spring Cleaning” can mean much more than revitalizing your closest! As you blossom alongside the flowers and embrace the warmer days to come, spring is the perfect time to declutter your life.

I am SO happy it’s March and I’m so happy that I’m finally feeling recovered from wisdom teeth surgery. The biggest thing I’m looking forward to in March is Spring Break in Jamaica with my family. I feel super fortunate to be able to go on this trip, and I didn’t think “spring break” would be an option when I graduated college.
I think taking trips and time for yourself is super important for recharging and making sure you can actually be effective in the rest of your life. Obviously, I recognize that the ability and privilege to take trips isn’t one that is afforded to all, but even if it’s just a day trip or a stay-cation; it’s important to make the most out of it. I’ve gathered up my best trip planning trips for you all, and I hope it makes your Spring Break A+!

Hello Ramblers! I hope you guys are having a great week! I am having such a fun week as it is my Spring Break and I have been road tripping around Vermont and skiing. Anyways, if you’ve read Bailey’s blog and listened to the podcast, then you probably noticed the reoccurring theme of friendship. One of the big things we mentioned about friendships is how hard it is to make new friends as young adults, especially after college.

It’s been a crazy day already. I recently got all four of my wisdom teeth removed a few days ago, so work and my organizations that I’m a part of have really been piling up. So, I hope that you are having a better Monday than me. Anyways, this week’s theme is all around the importance of friendship, and the vital role that plays in a 20-something’s point in life.

Greetings Ramblers! I hope you all are having an amazing week! As I mentioned in yesterday's podcast, I will be sharing my DIY tutorial for a rustic/distressed bar cabinet! I know that sounds like a big and hard project, but I swear it really isn't! It does takes a couple of days to do, but mainly because of the drying time. So, go get a bar cabinet and your DIY thinking cap, and let's get started!

Hello Ramblers! Happy Friday Junior! We are almost to the weekend and I can’t wait because it has been a hectic, not-much-sleep kind of week. I’m also excited for the weekend because it means I can do longer workouts and I can do them in the morning. Fingers crossed it’s actually warm enough to go running outside this weekend because I sure am getting tired of running my 10k on a treadmill. Even all these new Netflix shows aren’t keeping me entertained anymore.

Happy Valentine’s Day Ramblers!
No matter if you’re spending it with your significant other, friends, family, pets, or by yourself; I hope you have a wonderful day filled with love. After all, isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about? Love, whether it’s romantic or other? As someone who has spent all 21 of her Valentines as a single girl, I have learned that you can celebrate Valentine’s Day and have a fun and enjoyable time no matter what your relationship status is.

I’m trying to pick up a bit of Italian as my boyfriend is going to be in Italy for the next few months. So if you need me, I’ll be busy trying to distract myself with blogging, friends, and everything exciting that comes with being a 20-something.
This week, we decided to poll the audience for topics to write about and podcast on. And you all had some great ideas! Obviously, there’s not enough time to touch on everything, but I pulled out a few of the super interesting ones to chat about. If I didn’t get to yours, please comment below and I’ll be sure to get it next time.
