Ireland

Here it is! A recap of our trip to Ireland last month! I thought I’d come back all gung-ho to write this, but to be honest I’ve been dragging my feet. I blame sickness and technical issues, but it’s still overdue. The first leg of the journey took me from Boise to San Diego, with…

Thanksgiving Bowl

My favorite meal of all time has to be Thanksgiving Dinner. It’s made up of the most delicious comfort foods imaginable, and the flavor combinations just make my little heart sing. My mom would always let us choose what we wanted for dinner on our birthdays. Mine is in early January, and 9 times out…

October Favorites

My favorite month has come and gone now. And without missing a beat, everything is Christmas themed. You guys, fall isn’t over yet. And if you forget about Thanksgiving, we can’t be friends. I know it’s an American holiday (I know Canada has a Thanksgiving as well, in early October), but it’s my favorite holiday.…

Ch- Ch- Chili!

One of the best things to make when the weather is cold and you need a large pot of something filling is chili. Chili has been a favorite of mine for a long time, but only if it’s homemade. None of that canned stuff, okay? As I’ve journeyed through the vegan and plant-based world, my…

Hello Seattle

Seattle is my favorite city in America. I was devastated when my friends moved there 5 years ago, but can’t be too mad now because it means I’ve been able to come visit almost every year since. And every trip I fall more in love. This was a short trip; I flew in Wednesday morning…

The Power of Routines

As I usually do in the fall, I’ve found myself evaluating my life; where I’m at, where I want to be, and how my intentions can create something amazing or cause things to remain in the “some day” category. I’ve been watching some YouTubers talk about trying new routines, bullet journals, and how building simple…

100% Pure Review

For my 2017 New Year’s Resolution I determined to spend the year replacing all of my normal bath, beauty, and other household items with Cruelty Free alternatives. Extra points of the products were all natural and/or Vegan. The idea was that as I ran out of products, I would start trying Cruelty Free options. It…

September Favorites

Another month come and gone. Wedding weekend is over. It was magical, stressful, beautiful, and I’m honestly a bit more glad it’s over than I feel I should be. But it was incredible to have all of my people in one place, celebrating something that is so very good in my life. 4 years together…

Baked Oatmeal

It’s officially comfort food season! As the weather turns and the mornings get colder, I start craving warm comfort foods both for breakfast and dinner. One of my favorite breakfasts is baked oatmeal. My mom found this recipe years ago and it’s been a family favorite ever since. It’s one of the easiest recipes ever,…

Pumpkin Risotto

No offense to anyone who adores summer, but I am a hard core fall girl and I’m so glad it is finally here! I’ve had the fall candles out since we moved into the new house, I did a full fall beer haul recently, and I even made homemade chai concentrate to usher in the…
