Beyond the Kitchen
We rented a house a few towns over by the lake for the month of August for a few reasons, but are absolutely LOVING it. Look at this view. Jax loves swimming in it every day, and I love relaxing by the serene lake. It’s also kind of fun doing the commute life again, and working at my real house!
Jax turned 4! I cannot believe we got our sweet boy 4 years ago. He’s such a good dog and for sure my first baby, aka spoiled with love 🙂
I visited York, Maine for the first time with my friends at Stonewall Kitchen and had the best time meeting some amazing bloggers, eating great food, and learning about that truly amazing company.
Here is a shot of the lobster rolls from Fox’s — they even had gluten-free rolls!
And here are the amazing ladies from the trip! Check them out:

- Justine: @prettyinpistachio

Then I attended an awesome brunch in Boston with my friends at Vital Farms and I am so excited to work with them to explain to you all WHAT eggs are the best to buy – since there’s so much information and misinformation out there!! Look how gorgeous this table set up was!!!!
Otherwise, as an update from this blog post, I am feeling pretty good. Working on my detox protocol, Lyme protocol, doing as much as I can to heal my body, and mentally in a great space with it all. I appreciate your love and concern with all of this, along with all the well wishes and good vibes you sent me. I am so happy I decided to share what was going on with all of you. It was really cathartic and I am just so grateful for this community.
