Since going vegan, cooking has become fun again. And not because it's easier, but because it forces me to really think about what I am going to eat. It requires me to plan ahead and prepare a variety of foods to ensure I am getting an array of vitamins and minerals. Pinterest was a huge … Continue reading Wedding Soup with White Bean Balls and Kale
It's been a couple of months since I've found the time to share my life with you all. Although, I can't really complain about that; it is what I wanted after all. The break from the pressures of the cyber world have done me good; mentally and emotionally. I needed to find myself (again), and … Continue reading Life Beyond the Screen
Two years ago, if you asked me if I could go without social media, specifically Instagram, I would've laughed and sadly said, "No Way!". It was a part of me, something I felt I so strongly needed.

This last week, I experienced many changes, and many emotions, and literally had no time to just sit … Continue reading Seasons of Change
Over the weekend I took a poll. QUESTION: If you walk AN ENTIRE 50k, can you call yourself an Ultra Marathoner? This is something that has been boggling my mind for some time. I think some people misunderstood the question as if you walk at all, but that is not what was meant. This question … Continue reading Took A Poll: Ultra Marathoner

Much like anything else with babies, and all things babies, picking the right stroller is overwhelming. There are so many choices, each with their own pros/cons. Depending on budget and needs, an expensive stroller might not be necessary for everyone. When you research jogging strollers, it's only inevitable that the top rated ones are crazy … Continue reading So You Want a Jogging Stroller?
About a month ago, I was contacted by a girl named Texie to share this run on my social media accounts. I didn't just want to post a picture and say, "Hey, please sign up for this race."
