I’m going to go out on a limb and say this is the recipe you never knew you needed…until now. At least that was the case for me—it wasn’t until I was out to dinner Friday night and has a slice of spinach and artichoke dip PIZZA that I was like, “Wait a minute. Wait. A….

These are books 36-40, which means I’m only 10 books away from finishing 50 in one year (I started this little “challenge” in March, so I’m giving myself until then to finish). I have to admit, I’ll be sad when this is over—I like having a documentation of what books I’ve read (It makes it…

5 important lessons I’ve learned from yoga

Yoga is something I wish I’d been doing my entire life. It wasn’t until oh, about four years ago that I even took a class in attempt to stave off some back issues I was having, but now I’m hooked. I try to make time for at least one, if not two classes a week…
