The idea of squirmy, fresh green noodles covered in pesto sounded beautiful to me. And they definitely were. But then, I pulled the little roasted tomatoes out of the oven and they completely won my heart over! They stole the show for me, both in appearance and in taste. Those little guys pack a punch of flavor.
I really don’t believe I would have been able to get through college without them because we constantly prayed for each other, held each other accountable, challenged each other and were always having fun! We reminded each other not to take ourselves too seriously and to really enjoy college. I learned through a lot of them that life isn’t always about doing well in school or in anything that you are doing but that you are enjoying the present.
Who doesn't love a Clif Bar? During college I came pretty close to having one a day, sometimes for breakfast, other times for lunch or dinner. But around this time last year, like most other yummy foods, they started making me feel sick everytime I ate them. No offense, to Mr. Clif, my body just couldn't handle all of the ingredients anymore. But then! I stumbled across this homemade recipe... and I was able to resume my normal eating habits again. Wahoo!
Mom, this is a post to celebrate you! Kellie, Erica and I collaborated to make this list of all the little (and big!) things we notice everyday that remind us of you and all you've taught us. We are so thankful for you, appreciative of all you do for us, and the great example of a Godly woman you have set for us.
I am very excited to share this special lady on the blog today! It's a public way of celebrating how much she means to me and how thankful I am to have her as my Mother-in-love.
In honor of the first year officially getting to celebrate her as my mom on Mother's Day, I introduce to you, Connie! :)
To me, this donut recipe feels a lot like a long lost treasure. Donuts, as you may have noticed, have been trending in the past year or so. I love it, even though I find it a little bizarre. Last summer after I was diagnosed with my food sensitivities it felt like every week my instagram and twitter would have increasingly more photos of beautiful donuts and donut shops.
If you're like me you're getting ready for all of those crispy fresh salads of Spring and Summer. I got things started this year with this creamy, yet light, Chipotle Lime Southwest Dressing from The Creative Bite. Here are some photos to document!
I have a dream of seeing women come together and encourage one another to embrace the beauty they possess. I believe that once we embrace our beauty we are more able to share it with the world. I want to see women speaking truth and life into each other. I want to see women overcoming the jealousy and comparison we so easily fall into by celebrating beauty in ourselves and those around us.
They're super fun, aren't they? I decided that because the muffins themselves are very simple I would contrast them with a spunky, colorful background. Lucky for me, right as I was about to start shooting my husband came home with those adorable baby tulips - just the perfect prop to add a pop!
I totally gave everything away in the title, didn't I? :) It's true, this girl is starting full-time work tomorrow! And I am more than ready after a 2.5 month interlude of unemployment. The break from working full-time the past couple months was unexpected. It was hard. But it was also [...]
