Those days ain’t over yet

A couple of months ago I saw a friend on facebook post that she was forming an indoor hockey league.  Every since moving back to Louisville this past summer, I must admit, that I have longed for the days of hockey (and lacrosse for that matter.)  So I jumped at the opportunity.  Honestly, much of … Continue reading

Happy Hollandays

I hope you and yours had a merry Christmas! I have enjoyed spending time with our Carolina relatives.  We always find fun activities to do, like nerf fights (boys vs girls of course).  Last Christmas together, the boys got the guns (perhaps my mother-in-law didn’t realize how much fun us girls would have with it) and … Continue reading

As long as it tastes good

“As long as it tastes good…” this has been Michael’s mantra during this whole plant-based process.

(Do we close the clinics, do we stay over at my parents house, should Michael leave work early/take the bus?)  The end result was 2 busy days … Continue reading


I’m FREE!!! After about 8 years of longer hair, I finally had the good sense to CHOP it yesterday.  It didn’t turn out quite like I was expecting (what haircut every does) but it’s a freeing change.  Never have I experienced someone shaving my neck…. not sure that was necessary, and my hair-stylist put WAY … Continue reading

A healthy body [image]

Recently, Maria Kang, a health-blogger, posted the above picture of herself and her 3 children with the playful title hinting that even though she’s busy with her three kids, she still finds time to maintain a healthy BMI (body mass index.) While the title might have been a bit sarcastic for some, more sensitive types, … Continue reading
