HLS Part 3 – Sunday

Saturday night was so much fun! I stayed out pretty late, having a crazy dance party with a bunch of seriously awesome bloggers.

So Sunday morning’s 8am fun run seemed awfully early. 7am wake up, not ideal.

Most of us ended up walking and talking through some of the touristy parts of Philly. Much better plan than running.

love this ūüôā¬†rocky!I’m ashamed to say I ran the steps but I’ve never even watched the movie. alli fail. must add to movie list.

philly was fantastic. Before I knew it, it was over.

I had so much fun.

Met so many phenomenal people.

Have soo many more blogs I want to read.

and headed home feeling inspired, in blogging, in fitness, in everything..

Off to the airport & reality.
but one more cocktail first. ūüėČ

I can’t wait until next year!

One year ago today, I randomly decided to blog.¬† I’m not particularly interesting, creative, or into social media. Blogging seemed very out of character.

So why?

I was stressed, not overly happy, and ready to move into a new chapter of my life.  I created the blog as a place to put things in perspective. A small piece of the internet where I could rant about what I wanted in life and everything I was looking forward to without worrying about how that affected anyone else.  I used to be one of those people that was always high on life (or at least thats how I remember myself). The blog was my attempt to channel that girl, to remind myself not to get caught up in all the crap. 

Most of you are sitting there¬†a bit¬†confused, a whole year? Didn’t I just start reading this? Probably. I started reading blogs, and lots of them, early 2011. That’s when I started blogging more regularly and actually putting it out there.¬† but a birthday is a birthday right?!

So, in honor of the blog birthday, I figured maybe I should explain the original name.  good plan?


(because loveburst was already taken?!)

What is a loveburst? 

Sounds dirty right?

Its not. Sorry.

One¬†random Sunday, I was at brunch with many of my favorite ladies.¬†Numerous mimosas may or may not have been involved.¬† I can’t remember what we were talking about but I stopped.¬† and in so many words,¬† proclaimed:

that  I was so happy it was overwhelming

that I loved my friends

and sometimes I can’t even handle how happy they make me¬†

(dramatic much) 

anywho.. after laughing about how ridiculous I am and realizing we all feel like that sometimes, one of those fantastic friends told us that she and her ex had come up with a word for that feeling –¬†just¬†to explain those moments when you just feel so happy and so much love that you might burst.¬†¬†¬†


and from then on Рwe used the word loveburst allllll the time.  That feeling is what I was looking for when I started the blog.  A reminder that life could feel like that.  and that my friends, is the story of the original name.

Obviously the blog has evolved a bit.

  • I¬†have subscribers –¬†no joke – people¬†that choose to get my posts delivered directly to their inbox!!¬†
  • sometimes, on a really good day,¬†there are comments from people I don’t know. they make me¬†happy.¬†¬†proof that my readers are more than just¬†facebook stalkers.¬†¬†yessssss¬†¬† (don’t get me wrong,¬†I love my fb stalkers too :))
  • spam commenters?!¬†¬†I get enough traffic to bring¬†on spam? awesome.
  • and finally¬†the name – well.. that needed to change, since it didn’t sound like something anyyyone should be partaking in on the internet.

loveburst on that

Congrats NY!

Yesterday was a HUGE day for NY!  6th and largest state to legalize same-sex marriage.

Proud of those who took a risk & stood up for equality. 
“In recent weeks, I have had many conversations with our state Senators. I emphasized that not only is marriage equality consistent with bedrock American principles, but it is also consistent with bedrock Republican Party principles of liberty and freedom — and the Republicans who stood up today for those principles will long be remembered for their courage, foresight, and wisdom. In fact, 10 or 20 or 30 years from now, I believe they will look back at this vote as one of their finest, proudest moments,” Bloomberg said in a statement released shortly after the vote. ¬†source
