A Spring Lunch, To-Go

March 22, 2017

So I’m sitting in a cafe near our home, attempting this whole “get out of the house to work”-more-thing, but they are playing all of the current pop/rap/r&b music and it’s making me die on the inside a little bit (*cough*Drake*cough* I know I just lost like half of you – whoops!). Matt Costa and The Shins for life. Hang on, I need to pack up and drive home. Okay I’m home, and laughing. At least we attempted a coffeeshop…

Golden Milk: A Morning & Evening Routine

March 15, 2017

It’s finally happening next week! We are going camping in Death Valley, a place Scott and I have been craving to return to since our first time adventuring there three years ago.

Laura’s Cider & Sunflower Dressing

March 1, 2017

I remember being two weeks into my “plant based cleanse” five years ago so vividly. After a year of some serious tummy turmoil, a friend had recommended following a plants-only diet for a month to give my system a break. After two weeks of eating more vegetables than I had in a year, grilling tofu for the first time, and exploring new-to-me foods like hummus and lentils, I had never felt so healthy and energized in my life.
