I’m over on Carla’s site today, chatting about progress, not perfection.


Here’s a bit from the post:

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 [...]

A shoulder workout + non maternity clothes I've used in pregnancy

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 [...]

WIAW and stocking the freezer pre-baby

Hi friends,

Thanks for sharing my excitement about post-baby race plans! And although a marathon is probably a little crazy, none of you made me feel foolish, so thanks for that.

I will hit 36 weeks on Friday, which means two things regarding food:

I got in!

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was filled with lots of pool time, teaching spin, a birthday party and naps. We missed strawberry picking but are going to try to get blueberries later this week instead. I’m trying to squeeze in my favorite summer activities this month before our lives are changed with a [...]

NYC babymoon

It’s Friday!

We wrapped up our babymoon in NYC yesterday. It was so fun to play tourist and get a break from the daily routine! And it was a treat to be in our own house without anyone waking us up or demanding our attention. Of course, we missed L but I’m not sure she [...]

6 summer salads to break out of the lunch rut

Are you a creature of habit with your meals?

It takes work to try new things! Most often, I rely on leftovers to mix up my lunch options. But when those are not an option, I fall back on the usual salads or wraps.

It helps to mix things up with the seasons, and summer [...]
