Intentional Living: Year 2

Well, 2017 certainly was quite a year! In some ways, it felt like it would never end. That’s if you pay attention to the news, anyway. But in other ways, it went by in a flash. I look back at the year feeling pretty darn lucky, actually. And that probably has a lot to do…

The Intentional Evening Routine

If you’ve been with us for awhile now, you know that we are creatures of habit (especially Mike). Our morning routine, in particular, has evolved into a well-organized practice.

Intentional Guide to the Aeropress

There is my life before the Aeropress, and my life after the Aeropress. Before: bitter, cumbersome, inconsistent, resigned to mediocrity. After Aeropress came into my life? Well, I’m still all those things, but at least my coffee is now consistently convenient, fast, ultra-smooth, and delicious! I used to make my coffee with a French press,…

The Intentional Approach to Exercise

Towards the end of 2016, two things coincided that caused me to change my approach to my workout routine – Mike and I started planning out this blog and a more intentional approach to life; and I sprained my ankle during only my fourth week of a 12-week marathon training program.
