  • My love for @thebreakfastclubnld is so real that I’m claiming it the best breakfast in Amsterdam! 🍶🍽🍓
I’m sharing photos and details on the blog today - check out the link in my bio.
  • New post is up on the blog (and on @wholesomeandhungry). Wanna eat summer in a bowl? Recipe is in the link in my bio 🍑
  • The only thing not included in this Saturday morning snap is the the adorable pup curled up next to me (he's camera shy)
  • Scrolling through old pics this morning and I honestly don't know what I did in life that made me lucky enough to have this little baby-angel-turkey in my life. Even on the shittiest day, this adorable ass face makes everything right in the world.
  • I made this last weekend to feature on the @wholesomeandhungry page and I'm still dreaming about it.
  • Remember when I got to eat this beauty at @thebreakfastclubamsterdam in the middle of Amsterdam? No? Well I do and it was damn good.
  • The weeks we spent in Bali were some of the best weeks of my life. The people of Indonesia, the food, the culture...everything about this country is incredible. If you don’t already know, the city of Lombok (right near Bali) has experienced multiple earthquakes which has caused many areas to literally crumble. Hundreds have died and even more are still missing. There are some incredible people in the city helping the locals and assisting with aid. Both @mattyower and @rjbrowntown are two of these people. Be sure to check out their stories to see what is happening. I have changed the link in my bio to their donation page. Anything that you can donate will help them greatly. (Note: photo is from Bali last year)
  • Friday Fact: I. Love. Smoothies. I love them so much that I have been literally living off of them this summer. It's been a while since I have posted on @wholesomeandhungry but I think I am going to get back to adding content on that page AND I am going to start sharing some of the recipes over on the blog. Today I posted my recipe for this blackberry smoothie bowl that I literally cannot stop making. So grab your blender and get to it! Oh, and follow the @wholesomeandhungry page. K thanks... byyeeeeeee

February 11, 2018 No Comments

As someone who struggles with commitment in certain areas of her life, I have decided that I am going to make 2018 the year of commitment (pun somewhat intended). My goal is to find areas in my life where I need to create healthy habits that make a positive impact. One of the areas lacking any sort of habit is reading. I used to be an avid reader and would consume 2-3 books a month. However, over the past few years I have allowed other things (aka binging on Hulu) to take some of the time I used to devote to a good read. Well, that is about to change and in order to hold myself accountable I am starting a new series on this new(ish) blog called Monthly Reads.

This month’s book is actually a re-read for me. I first read The Year of Yes in early in 2017 and it was hands down one of my favorite books of the year. So much so that I am taking in all in again. Shonda is a powerhouse when it comes to television, but she is also a damn good inspiration when it comes to getting off your ass and facing the things that scare you.

The book is based around Shonda who, like many of us, admits just how unapologetic she was about saying no to the things that made her uncomfortable. After an insult from her sister, she decided she would take a year of her life and use that time to say yes to everything that scared her. No more excuses, no more hiding, and no more fear. Along with getting an insight into how saying yes allowed Shonda to live a happier life on her terms, you also get to learn about her outlook on marriage, children, and how it feels to own Thursday night television.

This book is a must read for those looking to get out of their own shadow and into their own life.
