  • Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works for You

    { 49 comments }

    Springing forward is crushing me a little bit right now. Coming off of a teacher training weekend and going straight into 5:30 a.m. clients this morning was brutal. I also somehow managed to never get around to having coffee this morning because I was rushing around. By the time I realized it was nearly noon and [...]

    Happy weekend! I am so distracted by this. These two are completely melting my heart. They have been absolutely inseparable.

  • Recent Eats: Vacation Edition

    { 14 comments }

    My eats over the last few days will definitely be different (and so much more beautiful!) than what you are used to seeing. One of the best things about Zoetry resorts (I've now stayed at the one in Punta Cana twice, Puerto Moreles once and there is one more in Cabo that I haven't visited) [...]

  • Christmas…Postponed

    { 8 comments }

    My mom called on Saturday with news that my dad has the flu. We always have Christmas at my grandmother's house in Georgia but my parents didn't think it was the best thing to make my dad sit in the car for six hours and then bring his germs to family Christmas. So...Christmas is postponed [...]

  • Let’s Talk Paleo

    { 23 comments }

    Hello and happy Thursday. I hope it's been a great day for everyone! Mine has been good minus a small freak out about the paint color I chose for the living room (I second guess EVERYTHING) and the fact that it's dark and cold at 6 p.m. now...but I'm going to have to get over [...]

  • His and Hers

    { 21 comments }

    I am not whining but I could not bring myself to update the blog last night. I had a crazy busy day at work and Brandon and I had plans to go visit his grandmother after work. Our visit was lovely but we didn’t arrive home and start making dinner until 8 p.m. After we [...]
