This recipe has a significant amount of sentimental value to me. It's made up of 1 part inspirational blogger/farmer/lifestyle role model and 1 part best friend/kick ass/new mama role model. The final product is as odd a matchup as the inspiration behind it, but I can tell you this much: each of these ladies plays [...]

What a Sunday we had yesterday! Nothing makes me happier than getting outside to play and explore in nature with my friends, family, and pups. And yesterday was the best combination of all 3.

This is a yearly event I put on for all four NorCal locations that brings our community together for some friendly competition, bro bonding, and lots of fun. I left the gym with a [...]
