30 HEALTHY HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS

admin

This week I’ve been thinking (procrastinating) about baking some goodies for a few families who go to our church. I want to make something delicious and seasonal but am hesitant to bake an unhealthy holiday treat.

FRESH TOMATO & AVOCADO GRILLED CHEESE

Lately my life has consisted of what I’m going to call the three B’s: boxes, bruises, and baby. Let me explain. Boxes: We are moving down the street on Saturday so we’ve been packing up our entire apartment this week. Knowing that our stuff only has to make it a few blocks away makes the move […]
