Snowpocalypse 2016

I kind of love being snowed in.  I’ve had plenty of time to leisurely drink coffee, watch old episodes of Fixer Upper, and stare at snow falling for hours.  A seriously welcomed adult time-out! With such technology driven, on-the-go lifestyles, we forget to slow down and just….be, sometimes.  I highly recommend it! Now-we haven’t exactly spent the entire time being blobs on the couch.  I thought it’d be the perfect time to take some pics, play outdoors and oogle the cottage style homes in the area.  This is what a Tennessee winter looks like ya’ll:           Life will resume as scheduled on Monday; slow down, soak it up, be grateful and enjoy the art outside 🙂

Happy Belated Birthday to my blog! I can’t believe I’ve been live since New Year’s Eve of 2014.  I met my tiny 2015 goal of posting at least one time per month-GO ME!! AND-it’s so ridiculously wild that I’ve had readers from 29 different countries! THANK YOU for joining me on this adventure and I look forward to what this year has in store. While many of us are thinking about the first day back at work or school tomorrow, I’m still reflecting on my 2015.  It will be a challenge to top with soooo many memorable milestones: First home purchase A wedding or, ahem…planned elopement in Key West New job opportunity and career path Sitting on a ledge over the Grand Canyon First Vegas experience First Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo EVER BAM!!!….But bring on 2016! I’m more of a ‘bucket lister’ than a New Year’s resolution maker so here’s a few items for this year: spend more time outdoors share more of my ‘foodie field trips’ here and provide you more ‘minimalist’ tips and recipes become an apprentice …
