As I slow down these last few weeks, I am appreciating and remembering the importance of rest. I wrote this two years ago and may be recycling a few oldies but goodies these next few weeks depending when the baby comes and how much time I have to blog.
How often do you rest?

How’s your weekend going?
We’ve been busy with house projects… more baby organizing (thought I was done but there is always more!), some yard work (not me), sourdough bread making, playground and pool time. It’s really nice to have nothing on the calendar these days! Although I’m trying not to let my mind wonder to [...]

Hey, it’s Friday!
At the risk of overdoing the baby posts, I’m indulging those of you who asked for nursery pictures.
I need to preface this by saying I have no interior decorating skills whatsoever. Our goal was a simple, gender neutral nursery and we used the quilt I made for L as the color [...]

As we were grilling one evening last week, we looked around the kitchen for a dessert idea. We had a number of apples to use up but I assumed they’d turn to mush on the grill.
I found a poached pear recipe that was done over indirect heat on the grill and thought, why not [...]

Somehow my last “official” pregnancy update was from 34 weeks. How did three more weeks just fly by?!
If you’ve been following my workout updates on Sundays, you saw that I manged to get in some decent runs, spin classes and weight circuits in weeks 35 and 36. Last week was [...]

It’s another beautiful summer weekend here. We spent yesterday afternoon at the pool and met another girl L’s age and her mom who is due a week after me. They moved here the same time we did and live just two blocks away! So we exchanged info and I look forward to having a neighbor-mom-with-newborn [...]

And just like that it’s Friday again!
I’m over on Carla’s site today, chatting about progress, not perfection.
Here’s a bit from the post:
Is anyone else a recovering perfectionist?
It’s so easy to set a high bar for myself and then become discouraged or frustrated when [...]

Last week, I mentioned that I’m craving sauerkraut lately and I’ll share a how-to recipe soon. But I realized that I haven’t taken the time to chat about fermented foods in general and why they are so important, so let’s do that today!
Fermented (or cultured) foods have existed in nearly every ancient culture. It [...]

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend.
As I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy, I’m finding (again) that workout gear doesn’t have to be expensive or even maternity to fit around a 8 or 9 month belly.
I like to splurge on a few nice pieces, but Target® is one of [...]

Hope you’re enjoying the long weekend! We’ve been busy with friends here on Friday, neighbors over for brunch yesterday and another party last night. Lots of good food and company… we’re squeezing it in while we can!
This week was a mix of really tough runs and really good ones. I never know [...]
