Coconut Gin and Tonics

Coconut Gin and Tonics! Refreshing, bubbly, naturally sweet and just 4 ingredients!

A life list. Have you ever written one?

Maybe at the ripe old age of 28 I’ve simply done it all (sarcastic eye roll). But in all honesty, I like the person I’m becoming each day. I like that I try to be intentional about my life and my work, and when John and I say we want to do something we actually try and do it. I like that we spend every new year’s eve talking about the people we are and the people we want to become.

No Bake PB&J Pie

My earliest memory of eating a PB&J is when I was about 5 years old.

I would eat my sandwich hovering over a towel "place mat" on the floor in front of the television, eyes glued on "Woody the Woodpecker," ... Read More →
