“When you know better, you do better.” ~ Maya Angelou I had planned on waiting to get through the holidays before posting about this. But it’s too important and I sense that what I’ve experienced over the past six weeks might help some of you as we head into the season of sugar cookies and champagne (two of my favorite things, by the by). For about a month in a half I’ve been actively cutting simple sugars and grains from my life. I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 25 years and I consider myself Read More →

Best Matcha Smoothie

Matcha smoothie

There. I said it. It’s seriously good and I highly recommend you all get on my matcha bandwagon. Full disclosure: I’m going on four weeks off processed sugar and almost all grains.

Tree sample 1

Not to brag, but the ladies in my world are just so full of insight, wisdom and enthusiasm. Emerson loves hot lunch with a passion that is hard to argue with and I can’t get enough of her contagious laughter these Read More →

Too small to fail, thoughts on routines

Book of Poetry

This recent post by Rebecca of Girls Gone Child could not have come at a better time for me. I’ve been thinking about the routines in my home lately and making some big and small changes that feel pretty profound. The book “Seven Times Aroud the Sun” has helped to clarify and put words to the gut instincts I’d been ignoring for the past few years.
