• Committing To Shovel Snow

    Shoveling snow. A topic that I, as a Minnesota lifestyle blogger who has shoveled snow all winter long, need to touch on. Basically a requirement at this point. 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…

  • Lowertown Pop Preview

    Local artisans, craftspeople, and makers, oh my!  The Lowertown Pop 3rd Annual Makers Market at Union Depot is coming up this month, and I am so excited. You all know I love a good locally made item… Soooo, I was invited out to the Union Depot for a preview of the event last week and wanted to hop on the horn to promote the event a little bit. Shout out to MNBloggerBash and Lowertown Pop for the invite. I got to meet so many cool folks that were following their passions and making beautiful items. The event is coming up on March 24th, 2018 from 10AM – 4PM at Union Depot in St. Paul. I’m…

  • SOUP-er Golden Coconut Lentil Soup

    Howdy folks! It’s been a while since I posted, so I wanted to hop on and chit chat about my life and lunch today. Work for me has been super crazy busy for the last couple of weeks. #NationalCerealDay is coming up on WEDNESDAY (3/7), which means that there has been a lot on my plate for my General Mills work. I’ve also had a couple of freelance projects with tight timelines. But, I’m doing my best to stay on top of everything. Whenever a busy period like this happens, I crave spending time in the kitchen. Chopping vegetables and tasting my soup forty-five times really refuels my pursuits. This…

  • Banana PB Overnight Oats FTW

    Happy Monday folks! Hope all of the Minnesotans out there are doing well with all of that wet snow piling up today. I have been boarded up inside for a good part of the day giving me some time to write. Time management can be tricky, but do you know what helps? Overnight oats! (Yeah, that connection was a little bit of a stretch) If you have been following my instagram/Facebook for a while, you know that last year I went through a major overnight oats phase. Like an every night prepping, every morning eating, kind of routine. I fell out of that cycle, majorly, last fall. I don’t remember…
