Thanks for stopping in at The Sweet Life! I grew up in Bloomington, Indiana (Yes, I’m an IU Hoosier too!). After a decade living and working in politics in Washington, DC, I’m finally back home again in Indiana — Indianapolis-area. It’s good to be back!
I love running, CrossFit and any kind of physical activity outside! I have run 9 marathons and been doing CrossFit for over four years, though I’m not really very good at it (I just love it!)
I am current obsessed with Hello Fresh, (code for a free week: JVEAKD), Stitch Fix and my sister Lindsey’s awesome podcast, I’ll Have Another (search for it on iTunes podcast app!).
I am addicted to reading (lots of book reviews here!) and sometimes cry too easily but I love to have fun, experience new things (like skydiving!) and meet interesting people who make the world better, and cause me to learn something about life.
I am very passionate about the causes I believe are most important. Here are a few organizations I think are AWESOME:
- Back on My Feet
- Family & Youth Initiative (foster care & mentoring)
- Compassion, Int.’l
- World Vision
- Global Outreach, Inc.
- DC 127
