What Every Woman Ought to Know Before Getting Married

13-Mar-2014

This past weekend, I got married to the most beautiful man I have ever met. There are really no words to describe how one feels when they walk through life with their true companion.

Dream Smoothie Recipe

10-Mar-2014

In the same way that green juices are an easy way to get all your nutrients from vegetables and leafy greens, smoothies are another great way to pack in a ton of different vitamins and superfoods in the one delicious drink. I believe in taking supplements and vitamins, even when eating a very healthy diet, as a lot of the time non-organic produce is sprayed with pesticides, stripping even the most innocent little strawberry of it's nutritional benefits.
