lazy day pancakes

This weekend's To Do List was pretty laid back. All we wanted to do was sleep in, take our time grocery shopping and doing laundry, and take the pups out on a couple new trails. I have been practicing slowing down and not doing everything I am invited to for about a year now, and it's just now starting to feel okay. I still need to work on just saying no and not justifying it, but progress is being made. 

spring rolls [in the summer?]

I can't tell you how much more human I feel when I eat whole foods. Honestly, it's not even a body thing for me. I let go of "fitspo" motivation a looooong time ago, when I realized it didn't work for me. Then I got really into yoga and being in shape was just a side effect of doing something I loved at least once a day. Now, my body is softer - and I am okay with that - but eating shitty foods makes me feel shitty. Point blank.

If you read my previous blog at all, you know I have been in a constant state of...transition? Lots of change, lots of curiosity, lots of uncertainty. LOTS OF LESSONS. All of which I am extremely grateful for. I took a lot of time for myself. Organically, I am beginning to focus more on friends and family. 

garden party

We have made zero dollars worth of investments to the inside of our home. Zip. Zilch. Nada. BUT we have put time, money, and energy to the yard, and since it's summer, I am a-okay with those priorities. Considering this tilt in the favor of outdoor upkeep, when it was time to invite some of our new (and old) friends from Casper over for dinner, I decided it needed to be out back.

Pop some bubbly, mama just started a new blog!

I loved ACE, and it will always hold a special place in my heart, but as far as blogging felt too personal. I know everyone says to be "authentic" and "real," but I don't know, I think I can be authentic without oversharing - and I think I was oversharing. Plus, since I was so open, it left a lot of room for interpretation, and I don't like putting things out there that I can't explain further through conversation.
