On this beautiful Sunday morning, I have been reflecting on my life and found one of my favorite phrases on Pinterest, “appreciate what you have before it turns into what you had.” So simple, yet so hard for many to comprehend. When I was younger, I often took many things and people for granted. I never stopped to appreciate some of the blessings in my life and now as I look back, I wish I would have done things differently.… Read the rest
After watching the Oscars tonight and the beautiful tribute to The Wizard of Oz, I was reminded of how much I still miss home. I moved to Tampa from California in the spring of 2003 and have been homesick ever since. Since I can’t click my stilettos together while repeating “there’s no place like home” and magically be transported back to California, I have learned to appreciate my new home. I came across the words below on Pinterest and they really made me see things in a different light.… Read the rest
You learn from your mistakes and that is why it is important to always embrace them rather than get discouraged. I found this picture of Sophia Loren on Pinterest and her words, “mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life,” is something I reflect on each and every day. I have made many mistakes along the road of life but would not change any of them, for they have brought me to where I am today.… Read the rest
Happy Valentine’s Day! I wanted to share something I found on Pinterest that warms my heart.

I have been avoiding the subject, but in less than a month I will be 39 years old. This has been very hard for me to to digest, as it feels like I turned 21 just yesterday. The last eighteen years have been a complete whirlwind and I am trying to make up for lost time. One of the biggest problems I have had is never having enough time for myself and having too many irons in the fire.… Read the rest
Pinterest has always been a source for uplifting and motivating quotes that inspire me to be a better version of myself. When I started off on my journey to live a “pinteresting life” for every day of 2014, I had more in mind than just recreating recipes and craft projects. I wanted to attain a lot of goals that I had set for myself over the past ten years but was never able to achieve due to having children, work commitments, etc.… Read the rest
Pinterest has always been a source for inspiring quotes and words to live by. I came across one the other day that really expresses how I feel about diet and exercise. I printed this out and hung it on my refrigerator so I can be reminded each and every day.
As a food writer, it can be a challenge to stick to a clean eating plan as I am always surrounded by tempting foods and drinks.… Read the rest
While sitting at my desk browsing Pinterest with my morning cup of coffee on this beautiful Sunday morning, I came across a quote that I pinned last year and wanted to share it, as it has become my mantra.
This quote by Steve Jobs really hits home for me. Last year I took a huge risk by leaving the corporate world after five years and went to work for a start-up company based in my hometown of San Jose, CA.… Read the rest
