Spring Reset

April 26, 2015

spring is here

Despite the chilly weekend, Spring is in full swing here in Bloomington (finally). My job keeps me on the road a lot. Don’t get me wrong – I love it but every now and then you need a weekend or two to reset and relax. As I gear up for my annual trip South for The Southern C Summit in Charleston (YAY) I spent the weekend at home relaxing with my hubs and pups. If you find it hard to chill out, here are my favorite relaxation ingredients…

BTW these all would be perfect for Mother’s Day.

I’m currently sitting in my office looking out of my window staring at mounds of powdery snow piling up. As I sit here bundled willing the snow to melt and the sun to shine, I’m daydreaming about warmer days to come, specifically sunny days to come on my trip to Charleston, South Carolina for The Southern C Summit! Since most of us in the US have been pretty chilly lately, I thought I’d share one of my favorite spots to soak up the sun and color of Charleston.

After following the Igers Indy group on instagram account for months, I finally attended one of their monthly Instameets. This meet, dubbed #CircleCitySesh24, was held at the historic Union Station in downtown Indianapolis. We huddled under the clock in the Grand Hall at 3pm and after a brief intro from the Igers Indy creator we slapped some name tags on and began scanning the space for worthy instagram shots.

I Heart Preservation

February 10, 2015

Buildings need love too. In honor of Valentine’s Day, this past Saturday I joined a group of preservation enthusiasts, professionals, and students to heart bomb a couple of buildings that were in need of a hug.




The idea behind these “heart bombs” is to raise awareness of the potential for vacant buildings while making advocacy visible and accessible. And sometimes they’re a loving send off for buildings that have lost their battle.  Continue reading “I Heart Preservation” »
