Justification for the Consumption of Not Water

Monday has arrived in full force. After a late start to the day, I’m sitting at my desk sipping sparkling water and dying for something with more kick. Having significantly cut caffeine and sugary beverages from my diet over the past few months, I always struggle with the decision between grabbing a sugary drink vs. a caffeinated one in the event …

Juicy

On the heels of signing a year-long gym contract, I pressed myself a couple of fresh “get the ass in the pants” juices last night. Grapefruit/orange/apple has been my go-to for a couple of weeks now.

Nice Pizza

At the perfect half way point between Dustin’s office and my own, we found Pizza Bella (literally nice pizza). Honestly, I was starving so the criteria for this pick were summarized by “I want food” and “it’d be nice to see you.” Their new location just off of I-435 in Leawood took care of both. We rolled up around 5:30 …

June Wedding in the Summer Sun

Set against June’s green and golden rolling fields of Northeast Kansas, my friends and family (finally!) celebrated the marriage of my cousin Jared to his childhood sweetie Angie, this weekend. It was a shabby chic party unlike any other – a gorgeous event that beautifully reflected each of their personalities. Sharing in the enjoyment, I snapped only a few photos. …
