FOREST

So…I was going to write a poem about forests because I was really inspired by the photos I took. But I am no poet and I wouldn’t do “the forest” justice. I guess you should just use your imagination as you enjoy these photos.     I shot these photos in the woods where I…

Typical Grocery List // Vegan

One of my readers suggested I share a typical grocery list. I thought it was such a great idea because I often get asked about the foods I buy. When I first started eating plant-based, making trips to the grocery store was so stressful. I was kind of all over the place and would just…

Missouri or Misery?

As a teenager, my friends and I would always refer to “Missouri” as “misery”. I know right, we were so funny! If you’re new to my blog, I am originally from Missouri just so you know. I had spring break last week and I went back to visit my family. Every time I go back,…
