BIG news! After nearly five years in Milwaukee, I’m moving east to Pennsylvania for a new job. I’ll be associate digital editor for a health magazine based there, and I am unbelievably excited for the new challenge, fitting subject matter and gorgeous hiking spots nearby. Plus, I’ll be just a bus ride away from NYC, wee!

This was a fantastic year for me—it felt like a fresh start. I started a new position at work, moved into a new apartment, met my new nephew and started dating somebody new and wonderful.

I could wax poetic about all the good times with family and friends or jaw-droppingly good food I ate, but instead I’ll just share five simple but wonderful things I did in 2015.
One Scrabble victory, two pies and countless hours of relaxation later, my Thanksgiving holiday has come to an end. This was the first year I didn’t travel home to spend it with my family. Instead I headed to small-town Wisconsin to celebrate with my boyfriend’s parents and grandparents.
