I challenge you!

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year but it’s also a time where we accrue CLUTTER. We inevitably buy ourselves new items and we usually receive a gift or two. There is nothing wrong with this but after a few years we may notice that we have an excess amount of unnecessary items laying […]

It’s ok to not be ok.

I’ve been trying to blog for a month now. I’ve been scared to post because I’m not in the greatest place in my life. I’m scared. I’m lonely and quite frankly I’m highly depressed. Normally I would shy away from posting anything out of fear that people would know my dirty laundry or that people […]

Let’s Get Roasted!

Oh, roasted veggies.  How I love thee.  I’d count the ways, but ain’t nobody got time for that.   I straight up love veggies.  Most of them.  But I especially love them roasted.  I believe that roasting veggies is the most flavorful way to eat them.  And, equally as important, it’s dang easy!  Seriously.  Soooo […]

Hosting Thanksgiving

This year was my second year hosting Thanksgiving. It was also my second time making a turkey. Y’all. Cooking a turkey is freaking hard work. If you’ve ever made a turkey you know it’s a dang chore. Last year I made a rosemary pear turkey and it was delightful. This year I made a more […]

The tree is up and I’m feeling the feels

Ok, ok. I know I’m early on all the Christmas stuff but I can’t help it, it’s my FAVORITE time of the year! When it starts getting seriously cold outside my mind just shifts to peppermint mochas and pine scented candles (and eucalyptus stems but that’s amazing any time of the year). I always put […]

Five books to cozy up with this fall!

5 Books to Cozy up with This Fall For many book lovers, fall is the ultimate time to cozy up with a new book and fight off the changing temperatures by reading the day away. I for one LOVE snuggling up under a blanket and reading a good book with my coffee in hand. Basic? […]

Good Morning Yoga Flow (coffee included)

Happy Monday! How’s your morning going? Hopefully it’s beautiful and bright and you’ve got it going on! (I’ve already smeared my makeup and stubbed a toe all before leaving the house.) This morning I wanted to give you a reason to get up and moving. Free yoga while you drink coffee. Monday mornings are the […]

Stove-top or Slow Cooker Potpourri

I just painted my nails the shade of hot chocolate.  Well, glittery hot chocolate.  Why?  Because fall.  Delicious, delicious fall.  The air is crisp.  The deck is covered with leaves.  And the lake house?  It smells like one giant cup of hot apple cider.  If you were to walk into my kitchen right now you […]

The Kansas City Half Marathon!

13.1 miles down. Done. Conquered. This was the most incredible experience I have ever had. I can’t even describe how this race made me feel. Badass, maybe? Most of you know how hard I have been training as I post it all over social media. I do that for a couple of reasons; I want […]
