Allergic Reaction

I drink a lot of green drinks. I eat a lot of green foods. I draw in a lot of looks and comments for drinking and eating said colorful sustenance. Especially at work, green faces abound (and trust me when I say they’re not faces green with envy). These faces are green with the grim … Continue reading

The Invisible Army

I’ve always worn my heart on my sleeve. Except when it comes to my blog. I’ve hardly worn my blog on my sleeve. Or is it, I’ve hardly worn my heart on my blog? Either way, compared to who I really am, this blog has been a tame pussy cat. Especially of late. I was … Continue reading

A Whole 30 Journey, A Whole Lotta Prep – Week 1

A Whole 30 Journey, A Whole Lotta Prep – Week 1

I first learned about this thing called the Whole 30 in a magical place called Instagram. Following some of its ardent followers long before committing to it myself, it seemed like the kind of ‘not-a-diet-but-a-lifestyle’ food program I could potentially get behind (it’s also incredibly similar to the Paleo Diet, which I’ve been curious about … Continue reading

Flash Forward

Hello (hello, hello, hellooo… echos…), dear readers! Are there even any of you out there still? It’s incredible how quickly time slips through your fingers; one minute you’re typing your Fresh Start Manifesto, and the next thing you know it’s two years later and not a blog post in site. Maybe this lightening-speed time jumping … Continue reading

An Inspiration Request

Something incredibly exciting happened just one week ago: my lifelong dream of living in Europe came true. I may be in the United Kingdom, so not technically mainland Europe, but an EU country nevertheless. It came to pass due to the fact that my husband (and all around excellent human being) is a Brit, and … Continue reading
