It's been almost on month on my lower carb/ low glycemic index "diet." Eh, let's just say I really hate the word "diet." Okay, moving on. As I mentioned in THIS post, I'm following a macro ratio of about 10% Carbs, 25% Protein and 65% Fat. I'm not being too strict and I'm NOT doing … Continue reading ALMOST One Month In: Low Carb/ Low GI.
I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned this here but, you MIGHT not know this about me: I'm gluten intolerant. Well, okay it looks like I did VAGUELY in THIS post.

I had JUST redefined my space to accommodate us as a "family of seven." It took me a few days to get the process started but eventually … Continue reading My Minimalist Home; Again.

Not sure why Kindergarten didn't hit me (probably because of Covid), but first grade is giving me all the sad feels. We did a bit of back to school shopping and I did some major labeling this past weekend as … Continue reading So It Begins.
I have to admit, this was a hard pill to swallow. I had the quiet room set up for months now and I really enjoyed the space. But with a new relationship and us going all in (he stays at my house 3 nights a week, 1 with his kids), I had to redefine my … Continue reading Redefining My Minimalist Home: Part II
I wanted to share some photos from my Getaway stay with my oldest for her birthday. I ended up reserving the tiny house for Sammy, my mom and I.
