Going gluten-free {update}

It’s now been over 3 months since I started a gluten-free diet and I’m still feeling great!  My energy levels are still way better than they used to be and I’ve lost 20 pounds 🙂  I should also add that I have also been exercising every day and also trying to cut out sugar.  I think all of these things combined are helping me to live a healthier life and I really just feel tons better.

Family Time on the 4th

We had such a great 4th of July! It was so nice that it was on a Friday so we got an extra long weekend 😉  My parents live next door to us and they had us over for a BBQ  and we had all kinds of delicious food. Hamburgers, corn on the cob, baked beans, strawberry spinach salad, homemade ice cream….so yummy! The wind picked up toward the end of the evening and with the dry weather we’ve been having around here (and fires) we decided to scratch the fireworks. But we still had such a great time!

I’ve been working on some new projects and can’t wait to share them with all of you, so check back soon!
