A Tribute to Working Mothers, Part 1: The Transition

DID YOU KNOW: Working moms spend an average of 37 hours per week working, yet spend more than double that amount of time (80 hours per week) on chores, childcare, ...

It Girl: Amy Clark

So look. Amy owns her own business, takes kick-ass pictures (including my recent head shots thank-you-very-much), is a wife and mother of two, oh wait she owns a SECOND business, ...

Running Solo

The time has come: the Columbus Marathon is almost here. As I reflect on my training, I really feel ready! I’m concerned about the weather conditions for that morning (it’s ...

I Swear, I Don’t Hate Feminists

YOU GUYS! I received a personal correspondence via my blog’s contact form! This is a big deal to me, because it can feel like I’m spewing all the thoughts and all the feels into my posts, but when I don’t see comments or any reaction to them, I start to wonder if I’m talking to […]

Confession: Sunday Nerdery

I’m launching a new weekly series here on Get It, Girl. It’s designed to celebrate all of the idiosyncrasies that make us different and wonderfully human. The series is called “Confession,” and will highlight a shameful (or not so shameful) admission of embarrassing behavior that you habitually exhibit. I’d love to have featured confessions sometime […]

Columbus (Half) Marathon: Done-zo

Well. It’s over. After 14 weeks of training and mental prep, the half marathon is finished. It’s a rather anti-climactic feeling… kind of like when you meet a Tinder match in person for the first time and their IRL (“in real life”) face is a mere shadow of their flattering, selfie-rich online profile (so I’ve […]

Punta Cana Vacation Recap

Most of you know that Michael and I recently dedicated some time to have a vacation away in Punta Cana. It’s so important to make time to nurture your mind, body and soul… and relationship! It was 10 kinds of amazing and no blog recap will ever do it justice. So I plan to just […]

Beach Getaway Packing List

Beach Getaway Packing List

With a hard-earned vacation on the horizon, I’m reminded of the fact that I am a notoriously inefficient packer. Like most women, I enjoy having options for whatever occasion may arise while on the road. But I’m the first to complain about carting hefty luggage through a crowded airport full of ignorantly ambling a-holes. The […]

With just four short weeks until the Columbus Marathon, my half marathon training is in full swing. I’m up to 8 miles now with my longer runs, and feeling stronger with every short run. Overall, I can tell that I am in a better place at this point in my training than I was while […]

Hello, Fall: The Fashion Essentials

You guys, fall is my favorite season. I look forward to it with an almost spastic excitement. I mean, the leaves, the pumpkins and applies, the cool, crisp fall air, that fact that we get an hour of glorious slumber back… what’s not to love? Not to mention, fall represents the official start of boot […]

Too Much on my Plate

Oops, I did it again. Put too much shit on myself, that is. In a classic Carolyn move, I spent the last several weeks adding things to my plate without creating a balance by removing some unnecessary activities. It’s an error of mindset, really. The whole spirit of this blog is to celebrate women and […]

Start with WHY

Book Club: “Start with WHY”

A recent client engagement prompted me to read the book, “Start with WHY” by Simon Sinek. I enjoyed it quite a bit – more so for the thoughts it provoked around the purpose of my own life rather than for the genius content it contained (trust me, the genius was a tad lacking). The entire […]
