Happy New Year, Folks! I know it’s trite to claim that last year was the best one yet… but last year was the best one yet. I got freakin’ engaged, traveled all over the US, and picked up a few great kicks along the way. Thanks for tagging along with me through fortheloveofnike. Y’all rock. Cheers to 2015, my friends!
When I was a kid, I thought growing up was the worst thing that could happen. I dreaded becoming an adult. Little did I know that being a “big person” is actually awesome. You can eat all the candy you want and buy yourself Christmas presents (all year ’round). A pair of Sweet Classic Highs and Winter Roshe Runs and a very Merry Christmas to me!
The Holiday Season is always better with a visit to an art museum, especially when showing the ‘rents around Pittsburgh for the first time. The Carnegie Museum of Art has a great permanent collection and rotating exhibits. It’s no wonder since it’s been around since 1895. In fact, it was among the first of America’s modern art museums– created by Andrew Carnegie to be a tribute to the “Old Masters of tomorrow.”
I just got back from a quick trip tp Syracuse, New York. Not too much to report. It’s a small-feeling town surrounded by a good bit of nature. A few fall leaves were still hanging around, but for the most part, winter has already taken its first breath. I’ve been scouring the internet trying to find something interesting about the little city to share with y’all…but to no avail. Just take a look at the “little known facts” page on […]
The city of Nashville and what is considered to be “music country” is located in the north central region of Tennessee, nestled into the Cumberland River. It has a sweet skyline and the downtown area is easy to get around on foot. If you travel down Broadway towards the river, you’ll hear live country music pouring out of every bar and saloon. Contrary to belief, even if you’re not a country fan, Nashville is still a fun city. Trust me, I have […]
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Lots of skulls and neon orange seem very appropriate today, dontcha think? I’m ready for an overdose of candy and lots of wacky costumes. (My top is from Ann Taylor, the skirt from LOFT, the sneakers are Sweet Classic Highs, and my hair ribbons are actually shoe laces.)
I know, I know, it’s incredibly cliché to start off a post with a definition, but bare with me. sneakerhead /ˈsnēkərˌhed/ (noun) 1. A person who is inexplicably obsessed with sneakers, rarely seen wearing any other shoe form, willing to spend far too much money on footwear, and way too eager to talk about it. 2. A person with a sneaker for a head. So maybe I made that up, but either way you look at it, I guess I am a real […]
Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my life. It’s made up of around a million gorgeous acres spanning the upper portion of Montana all the way up to Canada. Glacial movements a really long time ago created the natural wonders of the area. If you know me, you know rocks are one of my great loves. Notice the pigment in the pictures above of the giant boulders and rock fragments. WOAH. The […]
I would post Montana pictures everyday if I could. Here are a few more snap shots from my trip. I thought I’d share a few of the travel hacks I’ve picked up over the years. The idea is to pack as light and smart as possible. Keep it simple and only bring along necessary items. Think about it, when you take a trip– what’s important to you? my travel essentials: a comfy pair of sneakers that are good for lots […]

Tinsley House in Bozeman, MT is over 100 years old, and life goes on about as if no time has passed since the day it was built. The entire structure was moved from its original location of Willow Creek so it could be near the Museum of the Rockies. A staff, dressed in the traditional garb of the day, runs the homestead. Fresh pies are baked daily, a metal smith and carpenter are on staff, maintaing the property, and the […]
