If you read my blog, you know that about a month ago I decided to try a grain-free lifestyle.  My sister, who revels in the idea of pushing her body through painful experiences (think boot camp workouts, squat challenges, daily planking....) was actually excited about joining me on the venture and so we decided to embark together upon the wheat belly express. 

I have been way into hand-made tassels and pom-poms of late.  I'm not exactly sure why, I think it might have something to do with the fact that I've had so many requests for "boho chic" parties that my thoughts are completely wrapped up in yarn!

Every now and again the calendar plays tricks with our holidays.  Hannukah and US Thanksgiving coincided a few years ago.  We celebrated by creating a Gobbleabra

When I was a child, my Grammy Yocom used to make Easter as special as Christmas. She was known for awesome egg-dying parties, impressive brunches and elaborate hunts after Sunday sunrise service.  It was a wonderful gift she gave to her grandchildren every year, and one I will cherish for the rest of my life.

I am a huge believer in the thought that 99.9% of Americans walk around “functioning in spite of themselves”.  By this I mean they are dealing with some sort of pain, be it physical, mental, or emotional. Yet they continue through their days the best they can.  I know this to be true of my employees, my family, and certainly myself.
