My Last Ten

I thought it would be fun to go through my camera roll and find the last 10 food photos I’ve captured. I only take pictures of food if there is a special memory associated or it is a recipe I want to remember. These are some of my all-time...

Let us Share in the Warmth of Paris

The moment clouds of smoke entered my social media feed, terror and bewilderment set in. Blink once, blink twice, and I am forced to read the words beneath the astounding images, “Notre-Dame Cathedral catches fire.” While the initial panic was surely a result of the 9/11 tragedy, this hit...

Easy-to-Find Meat Alternatives

I live in an area where being a vegetarian can be difficult. My Kroger does not offer the variety of meat alternatives that many others do. I am also protein-conscious as I work out frequently and do not want to lose any muscle gained. The following are my favorite...

Runner’s Club

I’ve been running for years. Well… I’ve been running up to one mile for years. When I went off to college and no longer had dance or soccer practice to release my energy, I had to find something. I was an avid gym member, but never seemed to push...

Visit Biloxi, MS

One of the best trips I’ve ever taken was to the beach front town of Biloxi, Mississippi. Now I will say our AirBnB host definitely made this the trip of a lifetime (seriously, use AirBnB). However, a lot of the experiences we had could be done without the help...

Grace saves guilt

“Grace is being at ease with the world, even when life tosses wine down your pants.” This comes from the opening page of Sarah L. Kaufman’s “The Art of Grace.” This current selection from the books piling up on my bedside table has intrigued me from the first page....

On becoming a connoisseur of life

I have always been the type of person to be interested in everything, but master nothing. I would move on to a different hobby each week and never fully indulge myself in it. My interests ranged from wanting to become the next editor of Vogue to wanting to become...
