A word that, hopefully, will neatly sum up the activities you will engage in over the next 12 months? I’ve been thinking about a Word for the Year the past few days and I’ve decided on the word focus. Really, it should just be the default word… Continue Reading
Spaghetti squash is a low-carber’s best friend. Seriously!

For years, I struggled with my daughter about her messy room. I felt guilty because I didn’t teach her to keep it clean. I didn’t model tidiness or organization. And it always reminded me of my own childhood years because my room was always a mess, too.
