Welcome! After my corporate job was eliminated last year, I transitioned into the full time freelance world. 

Living with less provided the freedom to focus on other passions and I've been freelance writing for environmentally conscious brands and busy entrepreneurs since.

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 on my dad’s farm (little does he know or I’d be put straight to work)
  • re-learn Spanish (or what small amount I knew previously) in order to speak with the locals when I take the hubs to Costa Rica
  • develop my faith more and let my light shine brighter than ever

I hope you all have  a healthy, happy and prosperous 2016! And now, one final thought before you go…

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” -John Lennon
