Is This Thing On?

Hello! It's November 5, 2019—exactly 524 days since my last post—and, uh... a lot of shit has gone down. I did Whole 30 again, got very into yoga, got engaged, opened an Etsy shop, changed jobs, moved to Seattle, got very into Pilates, married Drew, spent two weeks in India, and am now Allison Guiney. [...]

Step by Step

Europe is actually happening and I can't believe it. After all kinds of back and forth wondering if airfare might drop and should we wait it out or just pull the trigger because the prices weren't that bad, we finally did it. We booked our flights to Italy and I CANNOT believe it. Before I dive [...]

Find Me

The thing about Wedding Season is you don't have to be in a wedding for the festivities to take up a ton of your time. Our first ceremony of 2017 was just four days ago and already I'm counting down until our next free weekend. Sorry if that makes me sound ungrateful. Not the case at [...]

Holiday Road

There are a lot of birthdays this month. Like, a freakish amount. I work on a team of 28 people and six of us have already celebrated an April birthday. Pretty sure there at least two or three to go. So I thought I'd make this Writing Wednesday as relevant as possible and address proper capitalization [...]

Sugar

Drew and I are 2.5 weeks into the Whole30 program and I have a lot of thoughts. If you're not familiar with the Whole30, it's a diet free of all sugar, grains, dairy and legumes. Basically all of the things I love. No big deal. Oh, and alcohol. The premise is that each one could be doing weird things to [...]

What’s My Name?

Writing Wednesday, what up! It dawned on me earlier today that while a solid 98 percent of the people reading this know what I do for a living, there's a lovely two percent that has every reason to find my obsession with grammar borderline unhealthy. I write and edit marketing and product copy for a [...]

Run the World

About a month ago, I briefly touched on what I learned during my four years as a Delta Gamma. I still stand by that list, but I'd be remiss to talk about how I became who I am without mentioning Duchesne. I went to a small all-girls high school. It's weird how many people are surprised [...]

Dammit

  I have a hard time understanding age. And that could be because I've never felt my age? But it's also kind of weird that we place such a strong emphasis on years. If you ask me, years mean nothing. Sure, I walk around commenting on how quickly time flies, wondering how I'm already a certain age. But aside [...]

I’m So Excited

Don't you dare think for one second that I forgot about Writing Wednesday. I most certainly did not. And I can't tell you how pained I was to hit the hay late last night without first sharing insights into the world of words and punctuation. But this week has been kicking. my. butt. To the point [...]

Here Comes the Sun

Remember when I said I plan my posts way in advance? This one backfired big time. See, it was supposed to be about all of the fun things I've been able to do since spring sprung! With warm weather and sunny days and birds chirping so loudly you can't sleep in but that's okay because it's [...]
