My Whole30 Journey

My Whole30 Journey

As many of my Instagram followers know, this past month I embarked on a surprise Whole30 journey.

A letter to my first time marathoners

A letter to my first time marathoners

Taglit: My trip to the Motherland

Taglit: My trip to the Motherland

I’d be lying if I didn’t say I had a constant case of wanderlust. Then again, I think just about everyone would be lying if they said they didn’t.

After years of putting off my trip because I didn’t want to take the time off work, I finally decided to take my biggest vacation in a long time: Taglit.
