One of the things I love about Jared is the sense of adventure and love for the outdoors that he nurtures in our children. Whether it’s bike riding, boating or feeding our chickens, nature is part of our family values. One particular adventure Jared loves is taking our kiddos to Lake Austin where they explore the coves, fish, water ski and soak in the sun. We’re hoping the weather cooperates

It’s officially been one month since I crossed the finish line at the Boston marathon with tears streaming down my face and legs that felt like jello. Nothing went as I’d planned—like most things in life—but I still wouldn’t change a thing. Now that it’s all over, I can’t help but feel like I’m missing something.

Homemade Sweetness: Mother’s Day Cake

Mothers Day Dessert - Gluten-Free Cake

Some years I’m all about taking some “me time” on Mother’s Day, but this year I’m craving more family-filled days like the ones I grew up with.

When I began marathon training, it seemed like the perfect excuse to skip my weight workouts. Because, let’s be real, who has time to run that many miles AND strength train?? But, I quickly learned that all that running required some serious support—and not just from workout buddies.

The Five Reasons Why I Run

To be honest, I thought I’d hang up my running shoes for a few weeks (or months) after the marathon was over. But when Lululemon asked me to participate in their campaign to promote running with purpose, I couldn’t resist lacing up again. I truly believe that running has the power to change your life.

Happy Earth Day! It’s a pretty big holiday around here—as it should be. Nature gives us so much.
