I’ve flirted with it for years, meditating and then stopping and this summer I finally started making it a daily ritual, waking up at 5am to meditate every day. And then we moved from Oregon to California […]

Mommy and Daughter Facials!

Let me start by saying that in no way, shape or form do I think that children need ‘beauty treatments’ or facials. However, having a 4 year old daughter I do know that little girls like to do what mommy does. On the rare occasion that I put on nail polish Annabelle wants it too, when […]

Fresh Breakfast With Scrambled Eggs And Arugula

Greens and Eggs

Eggs are one of my very favorite breakfasts. I personally think that a warm breakfast is the very best way to start the day- it helps wake your body up and gets digestion going. The great thing about eggs is that they’re so darn versatile and they taste wonderful on top of greens. I prefer […]

Finger Lickin BBQ Sauce

We’ve been making the most of barbeque season this summer and before it comes to an end I want to share this great barbeque sauce recipe I created. I had never made it before and I searched the Internet for a recipe but low and behold I had very few of the ingredients that they […]
