• I Accept Myself For Where I Am Today.

    I accept that today is a gift. I accept myself fully for where I am today. I accept that I am moving forward. I accept that I have the power to create change in my life. I accept and embrace that my path has brought me here to this point.

  • Overcast Skies Won’t Dampen a Lutsen Trip

    I wrote this post for my friend Kim’s blog From Lusten With Love. Be sure to pop over to her lovely site to read through her adventures on Minnesota’s North Shore. I’ve reposted the entry below:   A trip up to to the illustrious Condo 142 at Caribou Highlands has long been on the list of potential summertime activities. What can be better than a weekend of hiking, eating, and adventuring along Minnesota’s North Shore? After finally committing on a weekend in June, my partner Melissa and I made the journey up north. Though sunny skies and warm weather were in my mental movie of this trip, overcast skies, thick…

    Summer Goals: Embrace #LakeLife

    Hello beautiful nimble folks, It has been a while since I last wrote on the blog. There was still snow on the ground the last time that I posted (though that was really only a month ago). Spring 2018 was pretty much non-existent, and I am now firmly in summer mode. It was 100 degrees on Memorial Day in Minneapolis. So hot!

I can’t believe I haven’t brought it up until now… This is the perfect time too as flakes gently fall from the pure white sky as I sit in this Starbucks. First and foremost, snow is a wakeup call that we are nearly powerless when it comes to the workings of our world. Mother Nature has all of the control, and she is going to use her power as she deems fit, summoning a foot and a half of icy snow at…

  • Fresh theme; fresh(ish) start

    I began LivingNimbly over a year ago as a way to catalogue and process my life experiences. I knew that I wanted to blog about adjusting to a new city (DC –> MPLS). I knew that I wanted to talk about my experiences working in the communication field (Freelance + working at General Mills). I knew that I wanted to use this blog as a platform to connect with people, adding to the collective of stories stored in digital spaces (blogger meetups, online groups, etc.). This is what I wanted to do with LivingNimbly. At the end of the day, I created a food-focused blog. That wasn’t what I originally saw…
