Happy summer friends, it’s official!! We have 2 days left of school here on Long Island but they are only half days, so I am already feelin the summer vibe. I am eager to hit the beach, go for a swim, take it all at a slower pace and maybe enjoy a cocktail or 2. This year more than ever I am committed to watching what I put into my body. I realize in my 40’s that what I eat directly impacts how I feel. That means keeping it natural and trying to keep the sugars down as much as possible.

Someone please pinch me!
Hi there friends! As promised I wanted to share the exciting news I have been holding onto. It all began a few years ago when my blog became a profession. I was doing what I loved and I was actually getting paid to do it. I felt beyond grateful. I was earning a living and make my house a home in the process. I began to think, wouldn’t it be nice if I could do this for someone else. Someone who maybe had always dreamed of this but didn’t have the resources or means to do it.
