grouplightback copyI am a mother of four.  A business owner.  A wife.  And of course a woman, friend, sister and all that jazz.  I strive to do good- though sometimes I suck at it and strive to be a better person.

I have a food/health blog too, you can visit it here.

I am a mother of four, a business owner, a wife and an avid student of health & happiness. I am not an expert on Celiac, gluten intolerance, food allergies or Lupus, however since being diagnosed with Celiac in 2011 and Lupus in 2015, I have made it one of my goals to understand these diseases and the related issues…and mainly, I just wanted to live healthy, eat food that didn’t taste like crap and experience the joy life has to offer no matter what situation we are in.

Learn more about me and what I do by visiting my website.

By the way, I gripe a lot about them, however I love my children.

Yet, my children drive me NUTS. And to drink…

I love grapes.  When smashed and fermented.

I try not to gripe; but do often.

I am worthy of nothing, but grateful for everything.  Or try to be.

I have made mistakes.  Plenty of them.

But am so grateful I did.

  11. I know not where you are from nor the nature of your association with grapes, if any, but I am very familiar with how the grape/wine industry has affected the Pacific Northwest.

    Vineyards have changed that neck of the woods in many profound ways and will do so for decades to come.

  14. Loooove this! I also love a little wine now and then (and by that I mean whenever I get a moment!). And I also love my children, but the wine helps with that part every now and then 🙂 Thank you!

  15. I have nominated you and your blog for a couple of awards from the blogosphere!! Enjoy them and spread the joy. Here’s the link:

  16. Love your blog and I enjoy that you write about real things! As a fellow wine lover, I attempt to work it into whatever I happen to be doing that day….Shopping for dinner? Let’s stop at the wine bar (in the grocery store!) and have a glass. My justification is, I’m more relaxed and better able to make healthy food choices. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

    Looking forward to reading more!

  17. I am thrilled to have found your blog! I love your positive attitude. And the fact that you love wine and hot yoga (when I am not at the studio my mat is regularly available for practice at home). I am looking forward to future postings and catching up on older ones.


Leave your thoughts..and although I appreciate everyone, TRY to be nice :)
