2,016 miles in 2016 and Matcha Chia Pudding

Y'all... you know how you make a declaration to do something in the spur of the moment and then realize that maybe you didn't really think everything through? Examples include, but are not limited to: "I'm going to learn to juggle" or "I'm going to garden" or "I'm going to drink less wine" or my favorite, "I'm … Continue reading 2,016 miles in 2016 and Matcha Chia Pudding

duo becomes a fantastic trio

I've thought about coming back to my little corner of the internet for months. My mother finally convinced me to because she missed reading about my life. Even though we talk. Every. Single. Day. Over the course of a year, a LOT has happened. So much as a matter of fact that I'm just going … Continue reading duo becomes a fantastic trio

The Magic House

I know. It's been awhile. For those who have sent messages asking if I am okay, I am. I am just bad with time management. I was in India for two months getting my yoga on and having awesome adventures. Then I had to do this little thing called graduate from my Master's program.

GF and Vegan Golden Jam Cookies

When someone tells you that you cannot have something, it usually makes you want it more. At least that's how it works for me. I have never had a huge sweet tooth but it is there. However, since I found out about celiac disease, my sweet tooth has grown. I want baked pastries. I want … Continue reading GF and Vegan Golden Jam Cookies

I woke up 25 today

Today I woke up as a 25 year old. 25. It feels weird saying aloud. I remember being a kid and thinking 25 was so incredibly old. Funny how perspectives change. Lately I have been contemplating my life (something I hear a lot of us mid 20's- holy cow,  I am in my mid 20s- … Continue reading I woke up 25 today

World meet CJ, CJ meet world

The past couple of weeks have been a little hard for me. I got some news that has changed my little world. I am learning to deal with the news and plan on sharing really soon.

SUP Y’all? (Okay okay, I will stop)

A few weeks ago I got to experience the latest craze in yoga; SUP. For those who are like me and are unhip in acronyms, SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle board. Yes, I had to look that up when my instructor told me she was going to start offering SUP classes and even after … Continue reading SUP Y’all? (Okay okay, I will stop)

Doggie Paradise: A Lake Day for Nala and Lady

A good friend of ours came to visit us for a couple of days while he road trips from Missouri to California (a 30 hour drive!). We were so excited to see him but not nearly as excited as Nala was to see her best girlfriend, Lady. Lady is an older, sophisticated dog with standards. … Continue reading Doggie Paradise: A Lake Day for Nala and Lady
