Take Courage

If you read my previous post "Ready, Set, Stop." you know I am moving into an uncertain season where God has called me to be still and rest in His plan for me. At church the other night, worship included the song "Take Courage" by Bethel Music and my heart was hit by a train.… Continue reading Take Courage

Ready, Set, Stop.

Moving is a big deal and, as you might have discovered by this point, decisions are not something I take lightly. Some basic life decisions have me tossing and turning at night, anxiously debating what to do, while others I make with certainty (e.g. getting a tattoo). I moved to the Eastern Shore before I even… Continue reading Ready, Set, Stop.

Are You Your Best Self?

On Friday, I met an older woman using a walker who was intently focussed on every step she took. She was making her way to the same building I was so I held the door and the elevator as she made her progress.

Dinner

Fall into Curry Soup

When I am planning my meals, I always try to buy local produce #1 to support local farmers and #2 to manage what goes into my body by choosing organic, locally sourced ingredients. Berlin Organics is the closest option for me. I have been determined to make this soup for some time now, but "curry"… Continue reading Fall into Curry Soup

PB&J Breakfast Bowl

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day! I literally wake up thinking about coffee and almond butter (it's kind of help-worthy actually). I love food, but most foods don't like me. Fortunately, I work at an organic farm on the weekends which has further encouraged my healthy diet and at-home recipes. I am a… Continue reading PB&J Breakfast Bowl
