Don’t get me started on vaccinations…

I have this disease…. I like to call it “overpassionatity” (don’t google that, you won’t find a cause) and it sprouts it’s ugly head any time someone decides to have a debate with me over a topic that I’m HIGHLY passionate about. Unfortunately, I blame my high school french teacher, who would make me debate … Continue reading

Book Review- Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard

When your passion, your profession and your education all align… you’re doing something right.  I forget, sometimes, how fortunate I am to be so passionate about my industry and to have found a job where I’m able to use my talents and my passions, as well as the material that I’ve learned and continue to … Continue reading

Michael and I were given a gift card to a Christian bookstore, so I took a … Continue reading

Good Eatin’

We’ve had some good eating in the Holland house… Over the last few days, we’ve gone CRAZY with inspiration on recipes.  It’s been cold, and we’ve had time at the house to get creative on dinners (and lunches) on our new plant-based diet. I’ve been trying to be more focused on taking good pictures of … Continue reading

Fake-a-dillas? Vegadillas?

Michael was craving some qdoba on the way home from work.  He cited several good arguments: he had to study for his exam, and it’s on the drive home, and so quick, and so delicious… but we had mandated no more out-to-eat trips this week (for budgetary purposes!)
