Soaking in the Florida Sun

Happy Monday ya’ll. Hope you all had as much fun this weekend as I did. I was in Florida so I took full advantage of the beach and being outside. It was a busy couple of days and went by way too quickly (as always). Since Jonathan and I only get to see each other about…

Life After Whole30

Let’s see. Where should I start. If you follow me you know that I completed Whole30 in January. People have been asking about my experiences, favorite recipes and tips so I figured that I should probably write a brief recap. I started a little late but still managed to make it all 30 days. I’ll…

According to the American Heart Association, about 92.1 million American adults are living with some form of cardiovascular disease…

Happy Valentine’s Day (a day late)

I’m keeping this one short and sweet. I just wanted to take some time to wish all of you a Happy Valentine’s Day. Yes I’m a day late, but shouldn’t every day be Valentine’s Day? Whether you celebrated Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day or both I hope you took some time for yourself. I mean we…

Weekend Recap and Lasik Update

If you read my last post you know that I underwent Lasik surgery on Friday at Katzen Eye Group in Timonium, Maryland. All went well and recovery is coming along nicely. I think I’ve gotten the most sleep in two days than I’ve had in two weeks. Here is the rundown because I’m sure some of…
