My Return to Insanity (the Good Kind)

I, Audrey Payne, got up early to exercise today! As in, I left my nice, warm, cozy bed (that I love SO MUCH), to sweat through my clothes and get yelled at by the fitness industry’s biggest angel, Shaun T. Five years after my last go-around (which I started at this same time of theContinue reading “My Return to Insanity (the Good Kind)”

It’s About That Time Again

You guys, this year absolutely FLEW by! Where did the time go?! 2016, though perhaps politically quite terrible (which I will not get into in this blog post because this is a predominantly positive space and goodness knows what we have in store for us), was personally pretty amazing for me. But it felt likeContinue reading “It’s About That Time Again”

The Wild, Wild West

I realize I’ve gotten quite far behind in my blogging. And so many exciting things have happened in the past few weeks that I should have been writing about! But alas, life has gotten in the way.

Hello hello my beautiful readers! I hope you have been surviving winter. I have finally, at the beginning of March, begun to get the winter blues. My energy seems to have left me, I have started requiring more sleep, holing up watching more TV than usual, requiring copious amounts of caffeine to get me throughContinue reading “Is Winter Over Yet?”

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Happy New Year, my dear friends! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that you’ve come out of the season energized and rejuvenated, like I have. I know the holidays can be a bit on the stressful side, with all the traveling and crowds and having to pick out presents that (you hope) peopleContinue reading “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”

Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)

I have noticed as of late that I have somehow, slowly and inconspicuously, managed to find my own life again, without Rich’s presence. Most days, I don’t even think about him anymore. I have found that I have much more pep in my step, optimism about the future and, in general, a very real feelingContinue reading “Reflections (Someone is feeling mighty cheerful today)”
