Being a blogger for such a short time, I was thrilled to be nominated today for a Liebster Award! What a fun surprise.
Thank you Jan Baillargeon of Loved And Nourished for the nomination! I really have enjoyed reading your blog and seeing all the adorable photos of your baby girl, the wonderful meals you prepare, and the love you have for your family.
A Liebster Award is an online award originally given by more established bloggers to bloggers with less than 200 followers who post worthy, quality material. If the blogger accepts the award, s/he then nominates a few more favorite bloggers waiting for their awesome stuff to be “found” and thus the chain continues. Click here for a description of the Liebster Award and what goes into accepting it, nominating others, and keeping the awards flowing to others.

10 Questions Answered
What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
I really am passionate about helping other people realize that they don’t have to be perfect in order to be well. There’s room for treats and indulgences and mistakes. I am passionate about meeting each person exactly where they are. And I want to get people excited about health and wellness.

It definitely is the Vegetables Schmegetables post. It really illustrates how even with the best of intentions, kids of nutrition and wellness enthusiasts still give up their veggies sometimes. I am far from perfect.

Pine trees in winter. Followed closely by a fire in the fireplace.

Skydiving, attending a Presidential swearing-in, running a 10k
