Ah, 2016. It’s going to be a BIG year.
For starters, we are getting MARRIED this summer!
I am working on my cookbook which will be out later this year (!!!!), working on tons of new blog projects, and working on making more time for my health and well-being. Healthy living is so much more than just how you eat, so don’t forget to get good sleep, listen to your body, and make time for things that you love.
