- Welcome to my own little corner of the Web! I love my family and do what I can to leave as little of a carbon footprint on this beautiful earth we call home. We have become a paperless kitchen family! We make a lot of our stuff homemade. I love coffee and web browsing on blogs/facebook/pinterest, healthy organic (GMO free) cooking, and lots of kisses from Chris, Aiden, Coren and Mason...I am complete. I thrive to make our lives better. I have began a new stage in my life for my children. I want to show health to my children and what better way thru our every day life. I am currently on a weight loss journey and I will be sharing my success and failures on here. I am here to motivate and keep me accountable to reclaim my health and get my life back! Enjoy the ride :)

I splurged on myself which is something I never do. I bought a new flat iron for the first time in 6 years. It was a much needed thing. I went with a really fun color.
I've done awesome with going vegan. I have had awesome self control. No cheese which is so hard because everyone else eats it so I have it in the house. But the vegan cheese taste so amazing its making it so much easier. If I had known how great the tastes vegan food had I would have switched long ago. I'm now down 7lbs in 2 weeks with just eating the right foods and my daily devotions. Devotions are what gets me through the day :)

I have been eating a plant based diet for almost two weeks and at my doctors appointment today Im down 5 pounds from my last appointment 3 weeks ago. I have more energy, I don't feel tired when I wake up. I don't feel hungry because I'm eating empty calories. Life is going awesome. I can't wait to see more results. All my jeans are fitting better or getting to big. Which is an awesome feeling.

I planted my herb garden today! Parsley, chives, basil, rosemary and cilantro. I'll post pictures during the growth process.
Coren had a little treat this afternoon. His vegan chocolate! Oh boy was he in love!
And I leave you with Mason!
