This post is in honor of my favorite human on this planet. If you didn't know already, that's Rusty (my husband). I try to keep him out of the limelight, as he's a bit of an introvert, but this post (and this recipe) are for him. When we moved out of the rapidly growing, fast-paced [...]

Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, we've had the opportunity to pick and enjoy some of the best berries I've ever had, right in our own neighborhood and sometimes, right outside our door.

It'll be no surprise to anyone when I say this... People spend too much damn time with their noses in their phones (while not everyone is guilty of this, I'm speaking of the majority... At least here in the Silicon Valley). I think it's gotten too easy to forget about living and loving actual life [...]

fluffy fudgey brownies and why the ones you love most are the hardest to help

I have been blessed with a pretty outstanding family. My parents are just the best, and I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood, or adulthood for that matter. My mom is the most selfless person I know, and my dad comes over just to hang out with my husband, which makes my heart so [...]
