We’re All in This Together.

The frozen icy mix hits my face as I walk across the parking lot/hall of shame to my local TJ’s in my leopard print pj’s to see if they have any almond butter. I need it for my granola that I’m halfway through making at home The tiny ice crystals bite extra hard against my… read more

Progress. Not Perfection.

I wasn’t going to post these pictures. Truth is, I was going to post a more “perfect” one to show my recent weight loss, but hey #progressnotperfection, Amiriiiight??? So I’m posting these because the truth is, the teething baby needed to be held and this is the most he had smiled all morning and THIS… read more

The Break(ing).

2017: The Year of The Unconditional.
