I love traveling. My husband and I just went on a 3,257 mile road trip. We stopped in Manteca CA for 3 days. In Sparks NV for a day. In a teeny tiny town in Wyoming for a day of work. Then on to Colorado Springs CO for 4 days. We headed back home through the mountains then through the incredible beauty that is Utah. Oh how we loved it.

Such an old saying, but so very true. I was pondering how much more we live that saying these days with cameras on our phones where pictures get sent immediately, Instagram which is all about the pics, and Facebook where scrolling through the feed can bring tears, laughs, or eye-rolling on any given day.
As I write this, it is Mother’s Day. The photos on the feeds are sweet and meaningful and complete stories in and of themselves.

When I began this journey, I went from one who loves to meal plan and cook to one that couldn’t think beyond salad.
Ridiculous, I know.
But it was true. I know the struggle of changing your diet. Reach out and ask for help! People love to share what is working for them. Glean, my friend, glean! Continue reading
How many choices do we make in a day? You know, big choices, like am I getting up now that I’m awake or now that the alarm went off, or am I not? Things like that.
What about this one: Am I going to take care of my self today? Continue reading
Well, here it is, April 9th. One month from my launch into plant-based eating as an experiment to see if it would help the kidney disease that has been getting ugly in my body. My nephrologist is prepared to launch a hard-core medication campaign — something I would desperately love to avoid. I have done these meds before. It was not pretty.
