2018: Resolutions and Plans

2018: Resolutions and Plans

Hi all and happy new year, it’s Katarina here. The way I figure it, we can say that throughout January, which is pretty much a dark, rubbish month, so why not start greetings with something cheerful? After all, we survived the first year of a terrible racist president in office. We can and will overcome, and we deserve our bit of hope. 2018 finds us cozy in our little flat in London, chilling with our cats. We’ve had a bit…

In October, after running a half marathon in Paris Disney, we went to Ireland to explore the scenic countryside. This week, we take a look at our first two stops, Shannon and Doolin, including the famous cliffs of Moher. That it for this week. Come back next week for photos from the rest of trip! ~ Colin

Finishing a Half Marathon (When Everyone Thinks You Can’t)

Finishing a Half Marathon (When Everyone Thinks You Can’t)

On September 24, 2017, in Paris, Colin and I crossed the finish line of our first half marathon. It was a feeling of triumph unmatched to anything I’ve ever felt. Mostly because I knew I was proving people wrong as I crossed that line, tears in my eyes, cheered on by Mickey Mouse (I did mention it was Disneyland Paris, right?) Yes, I finished a half marathon, and I did it while fat. I have never been skinny. I haven’t…

Prague, in Photos

We know we’ve been really text heavy recently. Lots of adulting and advice and budgeting and numbers. It’s been a pretty rough few weeks, and we’re both feeling a little worn out. So what do we do when we’re tired? Look at old photos, of course! This week, we’re taking it back to last Easter, when we traveled to Prague for four days. It is truly a magical city. Enjoy! (Want to see more photos? Check out and follow our…

Running Through Paris Disney

Running Through Paris Disney

In September of this year, Colin and I joined my sister Jennifer to join in our first ever runDisney event – a 5K through the Disneyland Paris parks. We were also there as moral support, cheering on my sister as she ran the half marathon the next day (she’s running ANOTHER one today – go Jenny!). I am not, by any means, a runner. In junior high and high school, I only got through the mile runs by wearing two…
