Measuring Progress Toward Your Goals

My daughter’s swim team coach sits down with them once a month and has each swimmer do some goal setting. They are each given an index card to write down their name and both their short term and long term goals.

Veggie Packed Sloppy Joes #SundaySupper

Veggie Packed Sloppy Joes #SundaySupper

When I was a little girl, one of my favorite meals was Sloppy Joes. The combination of flavors and that soft roll my mom always put it on made my tummy for jump for joy! As I got older I started eating my mom’s recipe over rice, potatoes, noodles. There was just something comforting about it especially being so far from home. It was like having dinner with my family even though they were hundreds of miles away. A couple…

Summer Fruit Popsicles for Your Winter Freezer #SundaySupper

Summer Fruit Popsicles for Your Winter Freezer #SundaySupper

There’s something about the end of summer that really makes me want to preserve it for those cold, dark days of winter.  Sure we can find more and more produce all year round in the grocery store, but it’s those farmer’s market finds that really POP on your taste buds. I like to make batches of sauces and soups to freeze for the winter along with lots of popsicles for Mini Me. That girl can lick a popsicle in below…

What a Difference Nine Months Makes

What a Difference Nine Months Makes

  As I entered the plane, the usual feeling that comes over me was gone. For the last couple years, I’ve found it increasingly difficult to fasten my seat belt when getting on a plane. Sometimes the seat belts seemed longer than others. Other times I had to push with as much force as I could muster to get the belt to click.
