Five on Friday!

Since I'm jumping back into this blogging game, I might as well end this first week full of posts with one of my favorite Link Ups!

Y'all. It's Fall. FINALLY. I wrote about my favorite things Monday. Basically, it's everything about this season.
This was from last year, we definitely don't have leaves yet.

Fall TV Binge

As I've mentioned already this week, I love Fall. I love all the things I mentioned Monday but one thing that makes me love Fall I didn't mention: TV shows! 
There are a few returning shows that I'm still watching and then a few new ones that I am already enjoying so I wanted to do a quick rundown of them since you still have plenty of time to catch up on Hulu and get into them for the season!

How to Rock Your First Spin Class

Recently, a friend of mine dragged me to a cycle class at Cycle South in Uptown Charlotte. I have one word: ouch. 

I'd like to walk you through my thoughts during that 45 minutes... In full disclosure, I don't do much cardio at all. Occasionally I'll take a Pure Barre Platform class or go on a hike. So, I do really need more cardio in my life and this was the first step for me.

Travel Tuesday: Charlottesville, VA

Charlotte is in a great location. We are so close to so many big and fun cities (on top of being a fun city ourself!) It's so easy to have a quick weekend trip to places like DC, Nashville, Wilmington, Boone, Asheville, Savannah, Atlanta, and more. I'm going to do some posts on these cities that we've been to and plan some imaginary itineraries of where we want to go! 

First up, Charlottesville. 

I don't know if most people have heard of or thought of visiting Charlottesville (home of the University of Virginia) but it needs to be on your list ASAP!

Things I Love about Fall

Happy Fall, blogland! Oh and hello again. At least it's only been about a month since I last showed my face on this ole blog? But this time when I say I'm back I mean it.

I had every intention to post this on the official first day of Fall but Charlotte has been in a state of unrest since last Tuesday. I'm heartbroken by everything that has happened in my city. I fully support anyone's right to protest, but the violence was heartbreaking and uncalled for - especially when another life was lost as a result. The news definitely played up the violence and rioting on the first two nights but thankfully since Thursday, everything has been peaceful. I've always thought of Charlotte as a welcoming and opening city, but this week has definitely showed us that every city in this country has room to improve and grow. I hope Charlotte learns, grows and pushes forward to better the city together. 

I've been to two blog classes with Megan of Freckled Italian via Skill Pop (if you're local to Charlotte or Raleigh, check them out!) and I'm really feeling a renewed energy for the blog. I've started a content calendar and everything. I'm using Evernote to plan out post ideas, too. Maybe if I stick to this, I'll write about this later on! But, this means I've already got posts written and ready to go live for at least the next two weeks and ideas for even later!
