Let Your Light Shine!

Last Sunday, when the hours of light and dark were in perfect balance, we welcomed in the first day of Spring. Spring is the season of hope and has long been celebrated as a time of rebirth and renewal.  Perhaps now more than ever we are eager to embrace this cycle of growth and renewal in

Praying For Peace

When I sat down to write my newsletter this week, I found myself struggling.  I had planned on sharing a new recipe with you but somehow that seemed so trivial compared to what is happening in the world right now. As I listen to the news about the invasion of Ukraine, I am filled with an overwhelming sense of helplessness.  When I

Have You Given Up On Your New Year’s Resolutions?

With just a few days left in February, I thought this would be a good time to check in with you and see how you're doing with your new year's resolutions. If you're still going strong, that's awesome....keep it up!  If, however, you can't even remember what your goals were, you're definitely not alone. Even with the best

This Ancient Recipe Will Warm You Up In No Time!

"'s so cold outside."  I don't know about you, but I've been saying that a lot lately. Luckily, no matter how cold it gets outside, there's one thing that always warms me up.....a big mug of hot chocolate!  Seriously, is there anything more comforting than a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter morning?  I think not. While

This Makes Me Laugh Every Single Time :)

Recently, I saw this video and just had to share it with you.  I know it's really silly but honestly, it makes me laugh every single time I watch it. As silly as this video is, lately it has become my saving grace.  Whenever I start to feel overwhelmed by the stress of everyday life, all I need to do is take one look

I’m definitely adding one of these to my collection!

Now that we have been spending more time at home, it's no surprise that over the past two years the popularity of indoor plants has blossomed. While this trend may have started as a way to spruce up your living space, plants have some pretty amazing health benefits that go way beyond boosting your decor. Did you know that......... Plants

Do This Before You Ring In The New Year!

January 1st is just two days away.  How are you feeling?  Are you ready to hit the reset button and start 2022 with a clean slate? Personally, I love the idea of starting the new year with a clean slate.  There's nothing quite like it to give me that extra boost of energy I need to accomplish my goals. But as

Are You Dreaming of Sugar-Plums?

Recently, I did something that I have not done in a very long time.  I read Twas the Night Before Christmas! Reading each line made me feel like a kid again and I could quickly see why this is one of the most beloved poems of the holiday season.  Every word creates the most magical images of Santa and his reindeer delivering presents on

Yes, It’s Okay to Say No!

Tell me if this sounds familiar:  Someone asks you to do something that you really don't want to do but instead of saying no, you find yourself saying "yes."  Sound familiar? This definitely sounds familiar to me.  In fact, this week alone I've already done it three times!  So why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we say "yes" when we

It’s a Good Day to Be Grateful

Thanksgiving is right around the corner so I thought this would be the perfect time to share my favorite video about gratitude. Although it's been a couple years since I first saw this video, every time I watch it, I'm instantly reminded of what's truly important. I am reminded that true gratitude comes from appreciating all of the little things in my life.  The things
