Get off the dang sofa.

    Yeah, I'm talking to you. This is coming from a 29 year old tv addicted girl who loves all things cheese and gluten. Six weeks ago I chose to give up dairy and gluten for my health. I've always had digestive problems but getting to the bottom of them and actually doing something about them was always on the bottom of my to-do list. You know that to-do list that never actually gets done, yeah, it was on that list. I always knew something wasn't quite right but I never could put my finger on it. I can't believe that I'm already SIX weeks into this journey to better health. Overall health has always been my biggest goal,...

How to Live your Life on Purpose

    I want to ask you a question. We have two options in this life; to exist or to live. How do you want to live? How do we practice living a life on purpose? The real question is - How can we be intentional? Before we dive in, let me clarify what intentionality, actually is.

Being intentional should be used in a way that promotes self-development and/or benefits your business. How do we live a life on purpose and practice being intentional? There are 6 major steps to do so, and here they...

Pursuing You

      Lately I have been reflecting on my single years, and this thought has been lingering: “I didn’t always know who I wanted to be with, but I always knew the type of woman I wanted to become.” When I was in college I dated a few people and looked for my joy to come from them.  When those relationships ended I found myself empty and frustrated and unsure of who I was.  I remember making a list of all the characteristics I hoped would one day describe me. I found the list recently and have been inspired again to be a woman who defines these words in who she is: kind, caring, faithful, classy, graceful,  witty, clever,...

How photography became a passion of mine

    Have you ever had an idea nag at you? One that feels like someone tugging at your pant leg, like a child requesting your attention? For me, that child trying to get my attention was photography and photo editing, but it’s taken me years to realize it. It wasn’t until I started playing with Adobe Lightroom that I started realizing I was making excuses for not pursuing photography (I didn’t have a DSLR) and that it was something I should just start doing. The more I learned Lightroom, the more I felt this way. I’ve learned a lot of different ways to express myself and I still adore those things too. I was originally going to go to...

Fasting for better health

      "Fasting of the body is good for the soul."   I know you guys have heard all the recent rage about fasting. Water fasting, intermittent fasting, the daniel fast, there are so many. Intermittent Fasting (IF) is known as one of the most popular weightloss trends in the fitness and health industry today. This is certainly not an actual "diet" because there are no restrictions as to what you can or cannot eat inside the non-fasting window each day. IF is an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating. I'm sure some of you are thinking, why would I ever want to do that? Well, here's a little background on me, if you didn't...
