Summertime Smoothies

For years I used to start my day off with a smoothie.  It typically consisted of plain Greek yogurt, skim milk, a scoop of protein powder, and frozen fruit (typically blueberries).  I’ve since changed my breakfast routine, but still love having a smoothie as an afternoon pick me up or as a mid-morning snack when […]

Luck and Harmony

A Sense of Calm

I have to say that February seemed to be over in a blink of an eye.  It was a good month though, and I was definitely feeling better overall.  For my #monthlymarker for February I decided to stick with my theme of crystals and of course had to choose rose quartz.  What could be more perfect to symbolize love?
