I don't know too many people who loved running the first go around. For most, it takes several weeks, even months, before finding the "joy" in running. It's a process. I would imagine if you're just starting the sport you may be a little perplexed by all of the posters and quotes about how glorious running is, and even more baffled why so many people would "share" and "like" those banners.
You see, running is a lot like wine. How many people do you know who loved their first sip of wine? I … [Read More...]

In preparation, I have been busy cleaning out closets, organizing, and buying school supplies, in addition to a finding few clothing items that they needed.
I know once school starts we will be back to rushing out the door in the morning. So many times when … [Read More...]
Happy Fourth of July, everyone!
Every day I try and select a word that I focus on and today that word is, of course... FREEDOM. Freedom from negative thoughts and negative people. Freedom from doing things the same old way. Freedom to be who I want. Today I am celebrating with family and doing what most people do on the Fourth, go for a run, BBQ, cook, swim, talk, and relax. I will be explaining to my kids why we celebrate this holiday, and we will give thanks that we live in a free … [Read More...]
Right now I am on a mission to transform. Revamp my entire life, even my chocolate cookies, ha! I will talk about that in another post, but I am starting off by giving the Nestle Toll House Cookie recipe that we have used in our house for years a makeover. We like the NTH recipe it just wasn't the texture we liked and we felt they were overly sweet.
Then I saw this article by The Food Lab, read all of the tips, and took which ones I thought my family would like the most, to create this … [Read More...]
