I HAD to Share my Recipe! Easy Peasy Kale Quinoa

A little story behind the recipe… Okay, before I get to the recipe, I must first point out that I am not one that usually tries diet fads. Not. One. Bit. I am a strong believer to making lifestyle changes. Though, some diets, are definitely worth trying, they’re few and far between though. I learned about, “The Elimination Diet”, a long with a lot of other diets(there are SO MANY!), through the school I went too, Institute of Integrative Nutrition ….

My Outlook on Valentine’s Day

My Outlook on Valentine’s Day

My friend and her husband Oh Valentine’s Day, you see it everywhere once Christmas passes. The chocolates, jewelry, flowers, food, dates, kissing, love, love, shown everywhere! Even, social media feeds and commercials on TV is all about Valentine’s Day. Heck, there’s even a movie based on the holiday, the movie is quite good I think though. Everybody seems so happy, and in love, except for us singles OR the ones that have lost their loved one and they can’t cherish the day…

What Being 25 Taught Me

What Being 25 Taught Me

Wow, has it really already been a year since I turned 25!?! I just can’t believe that I just turned 26 years old! I was thinking earlier, that when I turned 20, I left my teenage world behind, at a curve, and started climbing a hill up to 25. Yeah, I know 40 is the “over the hill” age, I believe though, that any age with the number 5 in it, is halfway to a new world. Know what I…

Beauty of Winter

Beauty of Winter

Sometimes I wonder why I was born in Tennessee, why didn’t God allow me to be born in another state that gets more snow than we do. Then, if I lived in another state, I may not have got a better lesson out of why winter is the way it is in Tennessee. It seems like winter time is starting to steal my heart, I’m starting to notice more that it’s not just the snow anymore that I love about…

Farewell 2016, Hello 2017

Wow, I can’t believe 2016 is almost over. Can you? It seems like yesterday, we were welcoming the new year of 2016! This year, was not a year of sitting, waiting, hoping, wishing, and debating. Okay, so, some of it may have been, but this year was more of “going for it”. This year, like any year, was full of surprises, some great and some not so great. The year started like a flower, with new beginnings and some not…

Running Away Isn’t The Solution, God is

Running Away Isn’t The Solution, God is

Have you ever just wanted to flee away from everyone and/or everything? I believe I have a few times, heck, come on, I think most of us have.  It brings me to these questions though… Why do we do the things we do? What leads us to take the actions we take? What’s the reason behind it all? What causes us to do this? The first word that comes to my mind is, “escape”. Sometimes, we pack up our bags,…

Dear Grandpa(reading from grandpa’s memorial)

This post is in honor and in memory of my grandpa, Eugene Martin Luttrell, who passed away on October 30, 2016 at 12:58 pm. He was a great father(3 boys), grandfather, and husband.
