Celebrating Life (Ending no dairy, no sugar fast)

I’m very thankful for friends and family sending out such sweet birthday greetings, not to mention a wonderful husband that makes sure I have a very special day!

“Every BODY Matters” (Extended week of no dairy no sugar)

My blog posts entitled, “Person-Driven Life” & “What’s All the Fuss?”, of my “no diary, no sugar fast” for the month of September, brings into perspective the “why” behind the denial of these tasty food groups. Can you call sweets a food group? Clearly, it was added to my pyramid long ago! Since I decided … Continue reading “Every BODY Matters” (Extended week of no dairy no sugar)

As the wind gusts arrived and the trees were … Continue reading Riding out the Storm (Day 18 of Round Two)

Hurricanes & Cookies (Day 13 of Round Two)

One of the past-times in North Carolina is waiting for Hurricanes to make landfall. How should I pass the time while I wait? While waiting for Hurricane Irene in 2011 I played putt-putt! Obviously, we weren’t expecting a direct hit or major flooding. But with Florence, all I want to do is eat! And when … Continue reading Hurricanes & Cookies (Day 13 of Round Two)
