Sweet Treats: Healthy Fruit and Ricotta Dessert

For years, Hubby and I have tried to eat a primarily from-scratch diet with lots of fresh veggies and fruits. Over the last year or so, we have tried to cut back on sugar a bit too. It’s not that we never have an all out sugary dessert–we do, though we have tried to cut […]

Signs of Spring

We are buried under a half-foot of snow in eastern Pennsylvania, but this week still showed some early signs of spring. Yes, I know that technically spring is still over a month away, but a girl can dream of warm, sunny days even in February, right? 😉 Wednesday was beautiful – 61℉ with mostly sunny […]

Savoring the Spring Green

Spring is in full bloom in NC (and much of the east coast, I would imagine). My favorite part of spring is being able to spend more time outdoors, whether that is a simple walk around the neighborhood or a trip to the farmers market. Late last summer, I finally joined my family–all major golf […]

We both have more energy, and are feeling happier overall–which makes it so much easier to stick to our healthier lifestyle. The biggest change for us was eating a lot more vegetables.

Beauty of Spring

Just as spring was starting to fully bloom in North Carolina, Hubby, Pup, and I had to make an unexpected trip to Pennsylvania. Because we had an already-scheduled vacation in our hometown a couple of weeks later, I ended up spending three (very cold) weeks sleeping in my childhood bedroom. When we arrived at my […]

Major Changes and Warmer Weather

The last few months have gone by in a blur.  In early February, my husband was offered a great new job. It was in the industry he wanted, doing what he wanted.  He was ecstatic. There was no question, this was the right move for him.  That didn’t mean it was going to be easy. […]

Some Early March Fun in the Sun!!

I had a great post planned for today, but that is just going to have to wait a couple of weeks. 🙂 After all, today is Fun in the Sun Friday, so I can’t help but post on the amazing weather we have been having here in the Northeast this week (and what looks to […]

Spring is Springing?

The last two years have been odd to say the least.  Last year the Northeast had record-breaking snows and spring seemed like it would never arrive.  As of Easter, my tulips and Daffodils had barely began to sprout. This winter, we had another record-breaking snow storm–in October.  Since then? Nothing.  We are looking at a […]
