*I was provided with a Women’s Health and Fertility test from EverlyWell at no charge. Thanks as always for the support! You may remember that a little over a year ago I did a food sensitivity test with EverlyWell. It was one of the things that I had wanted to do since I started blogging, and it helped me feel legit as I worked on growing this corner of the internet. The other was to go on a sponsored influencer trip, which also happened last year, so I felt like I had MADE IT. When they contacted me this year… View Post

Welcome to October! I know I’m not the only one who’s excited for temperatures to cool down, baking to ensue, and sweaters to make an appearance. No shame. September marked my first full month of self-employment and it took me awhile to figure out where to focus my energies. I had to work on calming my anxiety that I wasn’t working enough and let myself take a break to take Donut to the dog park or finish my workday at 5 pm. It’s still something I’m working on, but so far it was a good first month. Here are some… View Post

Hellloooooo friends! I think I’ve finally settled back into life after last week’s trip to Michigan City. Some of my clients are out of town, so it gave me a chance to catch up on emails and blog-related things, so I think I’m finally current with my life.

Here are some of my favorite things this week — let me know some of… View Post

Last week I spent five days at a place called Modfarm in Michigan City, Indiana. It was a magical five days and I’m more than happy with the outcome of my trip. As you know, I decided I wanted to get away to concentrate on writing my book with little interruptions. I didn’t sign up for a writing camp or workshop, but decided that I wanted to go somewhere alone. Since it was the first time I had done something like this and hadn’t read much about the experiences of others, I want this post to be about my tips… View Post

Tomorrow will be 5 weeks that I’ve been sidelined from a stress fracture in my foot. I have a follow up appointment tomorrow and will find out what the next few weeks hold in terms of wearing a boot, healing, and exercise. I’ve been in this injury situation before and although I don’t like it, I know it’s important for me to slow down and let my body heal so that I can get back to doing what I love. In reflecting over the past month, I wanted to share some of the things that have helped me. I’d like… View Post
