  • A chain reaction

    I’ve been spending time processing my thoughts and sentiments revolving around the events that have taken place over the past week – it has all been a lot to take in.  Seeing George Floyd pinned down to the ground with a knee to his neck while pleading for his life and ultimately breathing his last breath..how could anyone shake that? It’s traumatic. Is it any wonder our nation has cracked? It’s a shame that it has had to come to this. With history repeating itself again and again, what we’re witnessing now is the breaking point. A pivotal moment for humanity. We will never forget, but do we have it…

  • Healthier dark chocolate fudge brownies [recipe test]

    This might come as a shock but growing up chocolate wasn’t one of my favorite flavors. Whenever we had Neapolitan ice cream (you know, the kind with vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors side by side) around, I would always only scoop out vanilla and strawberry.  I would even kind of frown at the thought of chocolate cake thinking that most other flavors were far superior. I know..what the heck right? But if you’re someone who isn’t crazy about chocolate, I totally get it. And if you love you some chocolate to the moon and back, I also get it (now).  For whatever reason, I’ve been getting more and more into…

  • Finding joy in the now

    Photos by Matthew Wong You’ll forgive me for that cheesy photo of me flexing up there, right?  For the past couple of months Matt and I have made an effort to go on (almost) daily walks. So much yes for soaking in some of that sweet vitamin D from the sun and for getting more steps in.  And I have been really fortunate to still be able to work from home with no problems. Now that we’re spending so many hours at home, planning to do something outside of the usual has been a welcomed change. I also anticipate what we’ll do on the weekends. Each weekend has been a…

  • Feeling less than in unusual times

    There is a lot of pressure to level up, to become the best version of ourselves, and to do the right thing under any circumstances during this time. It can cause even the most sane person to go into a frenzy.  I’ve been questioning myself a lot – what I can say, how I should feel or should even be allowed to feel, and why my patience has been waning. When you care so much, when you want to bring peace and a sense of calm into what feels like the upside down, you place a level of responsibility on how you need to show up.  This can be mentally…

  • Just start

    Note to self..again and again. Though, just starting, or rather taking that very first step, alone really isn’t enough. At least not for me. And that isn’t to say that if you’ve gotten over the fear of finally starting something that’s important to you, I commend you and congratulate you big time. Taking that first step can be pretty magical. But what I’m referring to is the struggle of continuing down the path of what we’ve started. If you could see the amount of Google docs or notebooks I’ve scribbled in where I’ve started brainstorming on topics or ideas with the hopes of eventually revisiting and making something of one…
