Tell me if this has ever happened to you… I had a bit of an “a-ha” moment today as I realized that something I was accepting as “fact” was just an excuse in disguise. Let me tell you about it. Last summer I joined a new gym and as much as I enjoyed working out […]
Last week, Jenna from Eat, Live, Run posted a recipe for Brussels sprouts with bacon, dried cherries and Israeli couscous.

Happy Peanut Butter Day! I can’t believe I almost missed the holiday the celebrates one of my favorite things in the world. Thankfully I got a heads up from Janetha at Meals and Moves (by the way, if you haven’t checked out her blog before, you should!). Our family celebrated a week early by eating […]
Ok, so you already know that I am a piler, not an organizer. But since I have declared 2012 “the year of organization” (not really, I just made that up), I decided to jump right in. My first project was one that was staring me in the face every day. My crafting closet was literally […]
