We are so excited to share the fantastic pictures from our wedding day from Too Much Awesomeness! Ken and Angie, owners of Too Much Awesomeness, did such a fabulous job capturing the day and all the special details that went into it.

Happy 150 Years Cleveland Public Library!

  Today marks 150 years for the Cleveland Public Library! If you’re from our beloved city than you know how important the institution is on so many levels, and for so many people: historically, architecturally and personally. Back in 2015 I wrote a blog about my love of CPL and growing up at the Slavic…

Glow at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens!

No matter what time of the year it is I love the Cleveland Botanical Gardens! Spring has the rebirth of nature, Summer is the flourishing of the floral and fauna, and Fall has the changing of the leaves. While the trees become barren in the Winter, the CBG shows that nature is still colorful and…

Our Awesome Engagement Photos (Part 1)!

Back in June my fiance Patrick and I had our engagement shoot with photographer Ken Clunk of too much awesomeness.

Cupid’s Undie Run 2018

  Four years ago I did my first Cupid’s Undie Run in Cleveland. Back then it was held in the Tremont neighborhood, but is now held Downtown at the House of Blues. The first one I did was single digit temps (EMS was on hand!) and yet still had at least a thousand people braving…

Dancing with the Cleveland Stars!

On Saturday, August 26th I competed along with seven other great Clevelanders in the Dancing With the Cleveland Stars competition benefiting the Lupus Foundation of America Greater Ohio. When I signed on to do this 2 months ago, after supporting my friend Christina who had competed prior-and won!, I was a mixed bag of excited…

I Ran My First Half Marathon!

I remember covering the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon for the station I work for back in May 2013 and thinking, I wish I could do this. I felt hindered with my sports-induced asthma. I’ve been active since I was a kid: dance, cheerleading, gymnastics, acro, volleyball, softball…but I had to always watch my level of…

Baby Shamers

  I honestly didn’t want to talk to her, but I was at a ‘ladies that lunch’ type of event so I had to. She asked halfheartedly how I was and I said “Great! Busy as always!” with a chuckle. She then says to me, in all seriousness, “Yeah, I just had a kid so…

Cupid’s Undie Run 2016!

Recently I participated in the Cupid’s Undie Run, my second time since it came to Cleveland 4 years ago. For those not familiar, the Cupid’s Undie Run was created in 2010  as a fun way to raise money and awareness for The Children’s Tumor Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to raising money for research to…
