On-The-Go And At Home: 10 Healthy Snacks For Every Routine

I’m sure we’ve all been there. That moment where you open your refrigerator or pantry door for the 10th time to stare at the shelves full of food. You sift through the drawers and shuffle things out of the way, but you can’t find anything you want. There’s tons of options, but nothing seems appealing. I go through this process far more often then I want to admit. I’m always looking for the 1 snack that I don’t have, which leads to a trip to the grocery store where I’m surround by unhealthy options.  Continue reading “On-The-Go And At Home: 10 Healthy Snacks For Every Routine”

Ultimate Shopping Guide For Your Holiday Decor

One of my favorite things about the holidays are the decorations. I love driving through our neighborhood and seeing all the pretty lights, the giant blow-up snowmen, and the wreaths on every door. New England is a very Christmassy place this time of year (the massive amount of snow doesn’t hurt) and everyone gets in the spirit pretty quickly around here.

R.E.D. Friday: What It’s Really All About

Among all Americans, there are certain days that we hold very close. Some are in celebration, while others are in mourning.

How I Learned To Let Go Of Negativity

The last week’s events had me thinking a lot about negativity, and how much of it we all have in our lives. It’s hard to ignore the fact that it surrounds us, either in our daily routine or all through our social media. Negativity is something that we’re bombarded with everyday. We deal with it during our morning drive when we listen to people call in, complaining that it’s Monday. We deal with it when we get to work, and it seems like everyone wishes it was still the weekend. When it’s lunchtime, we see it all across our Facebook feed. We live in a society where negativity is just something that we deal with, as though we don’t have any choice in the matter. But we do have a choice. I’m going to share a piece of my past that shows a more serious take on negativity, and what it can do to us. Continue reading “How I Learned To Let Go Of Negativity”
