Your Best December
I am popping into your inbox NOT with a Black Friday deal or Cyber Monday deal. I am not asking you to buy ONE more THING. I'm also not here to tell you to get back on track or how to detox after enjoying your Thanksgiving meal. I hope you know me better by now.… Read more about Your Best December
Looking back at some of my older content I realized I have written a LOT about Thanksgiving. I mean a LOT. I guess that shows how I really love this day of celebrating. You know I love food, so there's that. However, this is a day to just celebrate being together around a table and… Read more about Thanksgiving Musings
I found myself in a huge funk the other week. It came out of nowhere and landed all over me like a huge, heavy, wet blanket. I have no idea where it came from, what triggered it and why it decided to invite itself into my week and completely imbed itself into my entire being.… Read more about Get Out of Your Funk . . . in your own time
Let me begin by saying how much I appreciate all of the great comments and welcoming words from my last post!

Hello! We have been working on a little refresh to this site and a little adjusting to go along with it.

I bought a big, beautiful Spaghetti Squash over the weekend. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do with it, but it just screamed Fall to me and practically forced its way into my grocery cart. If you follow me on Instagram and Instastories you may have caught me showing a spaghetti squash… Read more about Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti Squash
I’ve loved all things health and fitness for a mighty long time. It was reinforced watching my parents battle thier own health issues that affected their quality of life. That helped me move from exercising for the outward results (like those skinny jeans) and focusing on all of the health benefits – both inside and… Read more about Growing Into Wellness
One of the very best things about summer is living off of wonderful, cool, fresh salads. I have two that I am loving this summer. One is an old favorite and the next is a new, refreshing recipe I have to share. First of all, I love a good chicken salad. I’m here to tell… Read more about Simple Summer Salads
I got a bee in my bonnet the other day to make granola. I’m not really sure why because this isn’t something that I make on a regular basis. However, I’ve been really trying to keep things clean and simple in my pantry and kitchen while also doing all I can to meal prep and… Read more about Simple Granola
I’m coming clean here. In fact, I’m already getting a bit squirmy thinking about hitting the “submit” button. Recently, I was involved in a photo session for a fitness studio where I love to teach. (Check out WestCoastWorkout for a great experience!) This is out of my comfort zone to begin with. I have never… Read more about Let’s Talk Body Confidence
I have been off of my cooking game lately, but preparing meals this time of year seems to be so much easier. I love simple, light meals during the summer. We all want more time to do more of the fun stuff. Going back to a “day job” also meant whatever I’m whipping up has… Read more about Four Simple Summer Suppers
