About Me

Hi there!

I’m so glad you decided to stop by.  I hope that you enjoy what you find here!

I’m a 20-something living in Savannah, Georgia with my hubby and our three little dogs.  I am the newest optometrist at Lord Eye Center in Statesboro, Georgia.  The hubby is a car/marine electronic installer for Best Buy.

We just moved to Savannah from Fort Lauderdale where we lived for four years while I was attending Nova Southeastern University.

My interests are varied but my main passion is for fitness, health and cooking.  My primary method of exercise is running, though I’m not very good at it!  I’m a back of the pack runner, but someone has to be in last place!!  I’ve run 2 half-marathons, multiple 5k’s, 1 15k and a 10 mile mountain race.  You can check out all my race reports(starting with 2009)  here .  I don’t spend all my time running, and I do like to get to the gym and pump the old iron.  I’m pretty much up for anything active and also enjoy biking, kayaking, white water rafting, camping, rock climbing and spinning.

I like to dabble in photography though I must admit I’m not very good at it!  Occasionally I’ll get a good shot but mostly my pictures are standard fare.  I have a nikon DSLR but I’m still learning how to use it(after two years…)I like to look at photos of food and take photos of food so you’ll definitely see a lot of that on my blog.

Creating yummy foods in the kitchen is a big part of my life.  I’ll be posting recipes on my blog and you can find all of them here(put in link to recipe page).  Both hubby and I are vegetarians, though he eats dairy and I do not.  I became vegetarian about 1 year ago after much research and thought.  Hubby became vegetarian after watching Food, Inc in January of this year.  I don’t eat dairy because it doesn’t agree with me unfortunately…..I try to eat raw foods at each meal but I don’t follow a raw diet.

Some of my favorite foods include: hummus,  green monsters , ALL nut butters, almond milk, AVOCADOS, guacamole and chips, red peppers, all nuts, spinach, fresh juices, home-made fajitas(called fa-G-tas in our household!), and chocolate!!

I also like fashion, makeup and the arts and I’ll occasionally blog about makeup reviews, fashion tips and other such topics.

Our three little dogs are Bailey Gracie and  Aspen. Check out their bio’s and see lots of pictures!!

I look forward to sharing my life with you!
