Keeping It Real~Life in a Social Media Driven Picture Perfect World


This is the view from my kitchen. It is peaceful, calm, and relaxing. I love that view! It is one of my favorite parts of our house and living in the country. But the reality is that most of the time over the last few weeks if you stood on my deck looking inside that same window you would see this. A messy kitchen that […]

Gluten Free, Keeping It Real, and A Few Other Things

I miss sharing all kinds of gluten free recipes with you all and I plan on fixing […]

This is not the post I had planned to share today. I had planned on sharing an apple cake, but I could not get yesterday off my mind and knew I had to share it.
