Relationship Monday: Single in a Pandemic.

     The idea for this blog post has been on my heart for a few months now, but I was hesitant to write it until I felt ready. Let's get real about the thoughts and feelings behind being single during the COVID-19 pandemic.

What I Wore to Work: July 2020

     I can't believe summer is about halfway over now! What even is this year? The day move by so slowly, but the months are quickly blending together. Hopefully I'm not the only one who feels that way?

    I have slightly less work outfits to share for July than I have for the past few months. Part of that was because of some time off that I recently had from work, and there were also a few days this month I forgot to snap pictures of my outfits. It's been a really hot month in Virginia so the AC at work has been even colder than normal, so you'll also notice I wore more jeans to work this month than the last couple! During the hottest months of the year I'm always the coldest at work- funny how that is!

How I've Been Working Out During the Pandemic.

     2018 is the year I rediscovered my passion for fitness, and working out several times a week was a main priority in my life from then until the pandemic began in March. Having my fitness studio close and workout options suddenly become very limited was definitely a challenge for me this spring, but I've been powering through.

Columbia SC Travel Diary

    I can't believe it's already been two months since I headed to Columbia, SC for Memorial Day Weekend this year! I wanted to write this blog post before it got too far into the future. Columbia is a cool little city that's so conveniently located to other notable places in the Carolinas. This most recent trip was my third time visiting the area, and I'm sure I might have other trips in the future as well! I don't feel like I know Columbia quite well enough to do a full Travel Guide (especially since I've only stayed with friends and never in any hotels there), but I did want to share the few recommendations I did have as reference for anyone who might be visiting in the future! 

    (At the time that I was in Columbia in May 2020, COVID-19 cases were still pretty low in the area. They've since increased significantly, and I probably wouldn't have gone if my trip was this month! Before making any out-of-state travel this year, make sure to check case numbers and local regulations of the place you'd like to visit. 😊)
