  I have had to charge my phone 3 times today… all the notifications are smoking my  droid   Thankssss for the birthday lovins all! I am not sure I will be able to thank every single one of you, but just know you touched my heart, and I am so thankful you took time out of your day wish me well!   Thanks so much for all the love today, AND over this past, challenging, year. As I take a moment to reflect, last year on this day (you can read my birthday post from last year)  I was just 4 days past losing my job and trying to figure out how to rise above that mess. Through last spring/summer– with your love, encouragement, prayerful support and...

I am an obstinate, stupid, rebellious little lamb. sometimes. bahhh.
p>From YouVersion: A Stubborn Little Lamb As for God, His way is blameless. Psalm 18:30 For the Lord your God is a compassionate God. Deuteronomy 4:31 Whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son. Romans 8:29 I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it. Philippians 1:6 “Cmon, Buttons, you can do it! Jump! Hey, you’re supposed to go over the poles,not try to knock them down with your head! Jump! Please jump!” Sherrie watched as the lamb tried every way to get around or under the hurdle rather than to jump over it. He was dirty and completely exhausted, and she was dirty and...

This months recipes are all about these 2 hearty ingredients….
p>yummm Spinach and Artichokes… they go together like peanut butter and jelly… well, sort of, if you do it right! Artichokes are a great source of fiber and Vitamin C, Spinach is a great source of Niacin, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Copper and Manganese–good stuff!! When did you FIRST find the tasty combo of these 2 ingredients? I bet I could take a guess and it may have been in some dip form of the appetizer persuasion! Spinach artichoke dip is one the most ordered appetizers...

A new recipe each week…. challenge for 2012 :)
p>I’m not a resolution type person, I just kind of go with the flow…But 2011 was full of drastic changes! last year, I did a Daniel Fast with my friends and accidentally fell in love with not eating meat. It now marks 1 year of my acquired herbivore-ness and 3 months of trying to further veganize my diet. (after I had a revelation of my chance of heart disease, current cholesterol metrics and my 30 day experiment that left me feeling alive and whole.) My goal when creating new recipes, is to make it easy, affordable, not weird and veganish enough that most everyone will enjoy it even if they like to eat the meat. So, my goal in 2012 is to share more of these...

‘Tis the Season for end of year countdowns… my top 11 of 2011…
p>Everyone else is doing it…counting down the top moments, discoveries and highlights of the year. I took a moment to reflect upon my top 11 of 2011– Even if no one ever reads this, it was still a great exercise to take a look back and gather gratitude for the moments that flew by so quickly. You should try it! Here it goes…. 11. Weddings. So many great memories! From my best friend Jessica in Cabo, to watching my little brother get hitched– it was so special to be a part of them!               10. Favorite New Music (to me anyway) I would like to award Florence and the Machine as my artist of the year.  I just...
