January Life.

And just like that - boom - January is over!! The first month of a new year under our belt. How was it for you? I have to say, mine was good! I had a snowshoeing adventure, had a weekend away with Chris to Keystone and ate a boat load of shortbread chocolate chip cookies. No complaining here. Here's a little bit of my life in photos. Cheers!

Parsnip Mash

January has been a little funky for me food wise. I decided to do my second round of Whole30 and within the first 7-10 days I became really angry at myself and kept asking - "why am I doing this? This doesn't make me happy. I want a beer. I hate everything." I had this weird internal chatter with myself about how I shouldn't give up on this, that I am giving up on a goal, that I am being"weak," I can do anything for 30 days... that this is healthy for me. Blah, blah, blah. Then I had this realization that I would be SO sad if I died tomorrow, there was a nuclear bomb attack, or something else crazy happened and didn't have a beer, glass of wine, or piece of chocolate before I left this earth. Told you my mind was doing weird things - it went to death and destruction.

My Favorite Podcasts

Podcasts are all the rage right now. They've been round for years, but I think they really spun off after Serial was such a huge success and I feel like this past year (meaning 2017) - it was the year of the Podcast for sure. I have been on and off podcasts for some time; this year being mostly on. I've been listening to every thing from my daily political news to murder stories to every day people stories. There are just so much good content out there that people are sharing and I can't help but listen to them as much as I can. So I thought I'd share what I have been loving with you. Here is a little run down of my favorites I've listened to this year!

Homemade Holiday Gifts: 2017

Is any one else in deep denial that Christmas is this week? No? Just me? I am a total procrastinator this month, which is not my style. I did most of my shopping online this time around, but I love to make a little something homemade. I am hoping to crank out one or two of my favorites for my office staff this week, but I've got to get cracking. If anyone needs some inspiration...here are some of my favorite food gifts to give away - Cheers friends!
