The coffee break reimagined

PMD coffee break final Collage

Since giving up most sugars and grains a few months ago my life has changed in ways I could never have predicted. I shared a bit about this journey here. I would not have believed that I could have ever experienced such sustained high energy, a migraine free and medication free lifestyle and an honest enthusiasm for this approach to food. I feel so good that I literally want to stop people on the street and spread the word, but I am not that lady. That isn’t to say I haven’t had a few tantrums Read More →

And she was just as charming, warm and kind in person as she is online. She’s the real deal. And if you don’t believe me you should absolutely sign up for her online Alt class Read More →

Party planning for Four

Clockwise from top: My attempt at a glitter filled balloon prototype, part of Emerson’s invitation, cutest birthday candles ever and place mates that I am close to ordering. Emerson is turning four in just a few weeks. Did that sound as crazy as it felt to type? She’s pretty fired up and taking every opportunity to show me the ways in which she is, indeed, a very big girl. I’m trying to prepare her for the fact that we will be cutting her birthday cake and that big girls don’t cry over such things. It’s Read More →
