by Lauren

We went backpacking a few weekends ago. My pack was bigger than I am and I was exhausted by the end of it.

Chris pushed me out of my comfort zone with this adventure and I thanked him. While it was a little rough climbing at that altitude with no cardio training, I don’t regret it. Thank goodness for barre classes that build up my muscles!

This has been such a complicated week of emotions. As of Sunday, I have officially moved out of the original LYK (forever in my heart though!) and shared home with my best friend. Chris and I are weeks away from marriage, so we figured it was probably time for Chrissy and I to part ways.

Sweet Herb & Melon Salad

by Lauren

Happy belated Father’s Day to all the Daddio’s out there! More specifically, my Daddio though.

Without my dad, I wouldn’t have a clue what kind of music to listen to. Classic rock is clearly the only option.

I wouldn’t have been the fastest runner on my soccer teams growing up.

I wouldn’t have a car…or have been able to afford gas for it in high school.

I never would have had donuts every Saturday morning.

I wouldn’t be able to … Read more...
