Pantry Staple Healthy Oven Baked Nachos

Pantry Staple Healthy Oven Baked Nachos

A super easy and healthy lunch, snack, or appetizer using pantry staples. One of my goals last year was to be more frugal and mindful with my grocery store runs. I wanted to make sure I planned meals ahead of time that would use all of the ingredients I bought and leave nothing to go [...]

Home Again & How I’m Approaching the Future

Vacation photo diary, realizations, and a refocusing to what's really important. We're back in Maryland after a wonderful 8 day vacation to my hometown in Ohio.

Strawberry Dress + Getting Back to Normal

Strawberry  Dress + Getting Back to Normal

An exciting wardrobe addition, and what life is like currently in SoMD. I've long been a fan of fruit printed clothing, and fruit shaped accessories for summer. As it's such a seasonally specific style, it's usually sells out as soon as it's launched. Unless you're one of the lucky few to catch something right as [...]
