    We. Are. Halfway. There.  
     
    WooooooHoooooo!!!!  (Is it just me, or did anyone else hear Bon Jovi sing that in their head?)  This is a very exciting day for me, as not only is it our halfway mark, it is also my 15th wedding anniversary! Usually my husband and I do dinner, etc.  When I started this though, I talked to him about wanting to start moving away from celebrating (and commiserating) everything with food.  I felt like it had gotten to the point where if we didn't have something really decadent it was less meaningful.  He agreed we could and so we're going to do a nature walk and possibly a visit to a lovely place in our area where they recreate the past in an historic village with period dress, working farm, blacksmith and all kinds of useful industry.  I haven't been there since I was a kid, and I always loved it.  The houses and other buildings are all authentic period pieces which were dismantled, moved and lovingly restored onsite.  Most of them are from our immediate area, and they offer the wares they create for sale.
     
    Hope everyone has a great day 15!  I know I will - So here's to 15 more successful days (and all the days after) and to 50 + more years with my own true love

    I've been doing a slow roll into my first Whole30. Replacing meals here and there over the past week that would be complaint with the Whole30 plan. I technically started yesterday; wanted to give myself some wiggle room in case I slipped up. Didn't go grocery shopping until Sunday afternoon but I was successful in completing the day. I officially start today though and will follow through until June 30!
    My only issue so far is that I've been experiencing headaches over the past couple days. I think it's a combination of a sugar/caffeine detox and probably not eating enough. Coming up with a plan now to beef up my meals!
    Excited to join you all!
