New Year, New Adventure

Things will look a little different on the blog this year. I am moving across the country to South Carolina. We bought a small farmhouse that we will be remodeling. Follow along our adventure as build we our dream life. I will be drinking all the coffee, sharing lots of positive affirmations to stay centered and getting in my workouts to not lose my sanity.

Happy Anniversary to my husband. 9 years ago today we decided to renew our vows. It was a recommitment not only to each other but our family as well. We have navigated the ups and downs of marriage, the ups and downs of raising teenagers and watching each one set out on their own path over the past 9 years. Looking forward to the next set of adventures as we continue to learn and grow individually and as a couple. As our love deepens, I am so grateful to have this strong, supportive, passionate man to share my life with.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Bun French Toast

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll French Toast

My Trader Joe’s find this week….Cinnamon Bun Spread! So I knew right away French Toast would have you happen this weekend!
I had some canned pumpkin in the fridge, so this delicious breakfast was an easy, delicious weekend treat.

1 serving:
2 slices gluten free bread (or your favorite bread)
1 egg
1 tsp Pumpkin puree
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
2 Tbsps almond milk (or your favorite milk)
Toppings:
Cinnamon Bun Spread
Powdered Sugar (optional)

Combine egg, pumpkin, spices and milk. Soak bread in mixture. Pre-heat skillet to med-high heat. Melt butter or add oil or oil spray to prevent sticking. Place soaked bread in. Cook until golden brown (about 3 min) flip and cook other side.

Top with Cinnamon Bun Spread and Powdered  sugar and enjoy.

Monday Motivation

Happy Monday!!I hope your cup is filled with motivation and excitement for the week. No matter your goal, find the joy in the journey. That is where the growth happens. By celebrating the small things in life. No one else can do things quite like you. From making the bed or doing the dishes, to how you take care of your health, to how you love your family and friends, to how you impact the world at large, that is all uniquely you. Love the process and be proud of every small step, it will lead you to a place where the outside world will not dim your shine.

Cherry Slushie

This cherry slushie is easily my favorite thing right now! Cold, refreshing, full of antioxidants. Plus cherries are a great anti-inflammatory and help with muscle soreness from workouts. The secret- the black cherry Mio. Gives it that extra sweet and tartness. Way better than that sticky, over sugared gas station kind. Add extra ice to get that perfect slush.
