This is a sponsored post on behalf of Farmer’s Fridge. I am the queen of convenience, especially when it comes to food. I LOVE taking pictures of it, but could never, in my life, be a recipe-developing food blogger. Most of my meals take less than 20 minutes to make. For a while it even killed me to bake chicken because I felt like it took too long. The only time I spend more than that is when I make an epic cheesecake or some other baking masterpiece, because that I actually enjoy. For anyone else who wants to enjoy… View Post

I have tons of posts written and I know many of them get buried over the years. I thought for today’s post it would be a good idea to share some of my favorites in case you’re having a tough day, a tough week, or really just want to learn to love yourself more. You Are Enough I think the title says it all. One of my favorites and one I refer to often when I’m feeling self-doubt creep in.

I read an article a few days ago that helped solidify the jumbled thoughts I’d been having about what happened in Las Vegas.

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

Sooooo I’m leaving this afternoon for a 5-day excursion. It’s really nothing extravagant; I booked this trip about three months ago after returning from the Everything Food Conference filled with inspiration and the pull to write again. You can read that post here. That previous post really sums up the what and why of this trip, so I’m going to jump into my expectations of what I want from the next five days in order to keep me accountable. As Type-B as this entire thing sounds, my Type-A personality needs some structure in order to actually make it relaxing. That… View Post
