Say Something, Write Something: Getting Back To It

Random, Top of Mind, Uncategorized
Where to start? I have been MIA "Missing In Action" from my own website. I haven't written or posted anything since February. It's been a combination of things keeping me away from writing my thoughts. I certainly have come up with a bunch of ideas to write about but have not had the will or the motivation to do so.

What do you love? It's a simple question but it may be a little tougher for you to answer than you think.

As you know I moved to Portland about a year and half ago and that's when it really started to happen for me. I volunteered as the Social Media Manager for WordCamp Portland and I have met so many great people because of that one act.

Going Rogue From Whole30

Going Rogue From Whole30

Food, Random, Top of Mind, Whole 30
So there's a quote my husband and I learned from the television show Scrubs "Too much ha ha. Pretty soon boo hoo." It's an excellent quote and applies to many situations. It certainly applies to me this past week going rogue from Whole30. My new healthy lifestyle is basically Whole30 meals and once in while I will eat something non compliant.
