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…

Life With Leah* In 2013

A fun, more fearless 2013 is a great (though very Cosmo way) of describing this past year. Entering the new decade, I feel more enlightened and proud of what I’ve both succeeded and failed at. One of the absolute biggest highlights of the year was finding out I’m going to be an Aunt! Khloe will…

A BIG Accomplishment

  I’ll never forget my first sports-induced asthma attack. I was in the 7th grade running the mile run for the Presidential Physical Fitness Testing. In case you’re not familiar with this, it was something held at the end of the school year where you competed in various activities (sit-up, pull-ups, Mile run…) and could…

Spiritually Fed

It’s easy to get off track when life gets super busy. To get so caught up in your day-to-day life that family, friends, work, relationships, stress…it can consume you and make you forget to put God first. Or turn to him instead of others. I did that recently. I was so caught up in the…

Listen Up Cleveland and More!

Well it has been a whirlwind week celebrating the big 3-0 and filming new stuff at TV20! Last week I interviewed Terri Pontremoli from Tri-C Jazz Fest about the upcoming Tri-C Jazz Fest and last Friday I was at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens for the new Big Spring event! Big Spring is so beautiful and was…

Countdown to 30….Part 2

  Let’s also title this Some Lessons Learned In 30 Years. 1. Mom is basically always right. No, seriously. I can maybe think of one time she wasn’t completely right. (But sometimes you just have to follow your heart.) 2. SAVE moolah for emergencies. Maybe in my 30s I’ll finally get this one right. 3….

Festivals and Red Carpets

These past two weekends I had the pleasure of covering two more really cool, fun events here in Cleveland. First, on February 16th I was at the 4th Annual Brite Winter Festival in Ohio City. Obviously being a huge lover and supporter of music and the arts (especially locally) it is an event I never…
