T and I have been living together for about 9 months now, and I’ve learned things I never even considered before moving in together. Besides the surface level things we all anticipate like communication skills I wanted to share with you 5 things I’ve learned in the past year to possibly help you if you’re getting ready to move in with your person, or if you are going through a bit of a rough patch after diving in.Read More
To help you on the fitness aspect of that best version of you God is going to show you, I wanted to give you a few tips in finding balance in your fitness routine. This way it becomes something you can truly see yourself doing for the rest of your life. I see fitness as so much more than how many pushups you can do, or the body it gives you. Fitness gives you the mental drive, the confidence, and the push we all need to be a better person in every day life.Read More

Wow friends. One of my FAVORITE parts of eating a more nutrient dense diet is the hair and skin benefits, I’m not ashamed to say it!
What you eat directly effects so much outside of your size and shape. From your mood and anxiety level, to your hair, skin, and nails, your quality of sleep, and so much more! Shinier and thicker hair, as well as clearer skin is one of the benefits that I see most quickly and many others do as well.Read More
I’m always up for a little motivational post. So Motivation Mondays are going to become a thing around here. Be on the lookout every Monday for a post that is sure to get you right out of bed in the morning and ready to take on the day! Or at least roll out of bed with a little more umph than before…!!
I’m not ashamed to say that I used to think I was “too good” for a self development book.Read More
Is there anything better on this beautiful earth than fall food? Oh yes of course, nut butter, thank you for that reminder. Other than nut butter? NO. NOTHIN’. NADA.

Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite fall dinner recipes!Read More

I see too many people settling, letting fear of failure or other people’s opinions keep them from finding fulfillment in their days and acknowledgement for themselves. THIS seriously lights a fire under my bum.

“How wonderful that the same God who created the mountains and the sea decided that the world needed one of you too?”
We weren’t created to wake up, go through the motions, pay some bills, maybe head to Disney once or twice, and then slide six feet under.Read More
I don’t know about you, but some foods just bring back the comforts of childhood and home. For me, one of those things is banana bread. My mouth is watering just thinking about it!Read More
We all have those days, sometimes weeks where you just can’t help but feel like you’re not yourself. Maybe something happened that caused it, but often times it just happens out of the blue (no pun intended, hehe) and all you want is to feel happier or more positive.Read More
We all know what to do.
A little more broccoli, a little less Reese’s.
But its the HOW part that tends to be tricky. HOW to implement these healthy changes we so badly want to take to reach our goals. Whether it be aesthetic, confidence, energy, biologically and physically, or emotionally we are so ready to find change, but can't quite make it stick.Read More
