Sooo, last weekend, I finished my first Whole30! And to be honest, it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be – I learned a lot about my food habits, and also managed to change a lot of them for the better.

I feel a little bit spoiled because since I work from home, meal prepping wasn’t as necessary for me as it is for so many people. I made a whole bunch of delicious meals from some of my favorite bloggers, and actually learned how to be a much better cook using way healthier ingredients. Progress! [Read more…]

Instead, I’m sitting on my patio at home, sipping coffee and looking at our calming view of the Puget Sound, and enjoying my favorite spot in the house, writing a post to you. Let me just say: Our patio is seriously awesome. Super comfy futon, cute yellow trunk/coffee table, dining set, herb garden, twinkle lights, and flowers – what more could a girl want on her patio?
