Baby E and I are 9 weeks postpartum, and things are going very well! We have a great routine—and by routine, I mean, he gives me clues about when he needs what and I try to interpret them. He’s such a cruise-y baby—and he loves to snuggle. I hit the jackpot with him. He’s really [...]

Jazzed Up Juice…

by Lisa on August 8, 2014

I go through phases when I juice everyday… and other phases when I don’t juice at all. But overall, I love juicing–it makes me feel like I’m starting the day out right (I always do it in the morning). Smoothies are good too, but because of the types of things I want to put in [...]

The 4th Trimester

August 7, 2014

Baby E was born on June 12th, which is also the anniversary of Dave’s and my first date and was also my grandma’s 90th birthday. So it was a great day! Since we’re eight weeks out from E’s birth, I thought I’d fill you in a bit about what’s going on now. I’m not going [...]

Blog Hop: Women Writing

June 2, 2014

I’ve always had a thing for stories. As a child and young adult, I read a lot. Like, there was one summer when I think I spent the entire time reading in my bedroom. I don’t remember why I did it–it was like an addiction, but a good one (I think). I got special permission [...]

May 19, 2014

This weekend I asked myself what the most logical and practical thing would be for me to do on Sunday. My potential list included things like: packing a hospital bag, finding my doula’s phone number, doing prenatal yoga, finishing putting away baby clothes…you get the idea. So what did I decide to do?

Mango Coconut Truffles

April 29, 2014

These start out kind of like macaroons you’d find in the raw food world. I’ve made versions of them before, but the coconut flakes are so tiny and they have a more chewy feel—so I think they’re more like truffles. Especially if you dip them in chocolate. I kept asking Dave if I should drizzle [...]

I needed to share this recipe ASAP—it’s the fluffiest yummiest coconut flour recipe I’ve come up with, and I still can hardly believe it turned out so well!
