Sure to Impress Party Food

Your party is an expression of you! When planning party food, the first question you need to ask yourself is “What kind of feel am I going for?”
Here are four of my tried and true party arrangement favorites! See below for recipes if you’re interested or just take some inspiration with you when you go.

Why You Need Self-Care

Do you take care of yourself? I mean beyond basic hygiene, sustenance and sleep. What does it mean to truly take care of yourself? The term “self-care” is one we have all heard but what does it really mean? Is it Starbucks and a manicure? It might be, for some. What you need in order to truly care for yourself is entirely unique to you.

Some families you are born into and some you create. Most importantly, family is those who love and support you exactly as you are.

No Waste Pumpkin Carving

We attempted a no waste Halloween! The main part of the pumpkin is of course used as the Halloween jack-O-lantern. The carved out chunks that make the faces were happily gobbled up by our dogs as an afternoon treat. The inside pumpkin leftovers were up to me!
