So I feel like I’m a little late on a couple things. Okay, maybe really late.
First of all, stove top potpourri. Why have I never tried this until now? I’ve heard about it, seen it all over Pinterest, but never thought much of it until now. It just never seemed like something I needed in my life. Boy was I wrong! I finally got around to trying it, and now this may be one of my favorite things ever. Continue Reading
Happy Sunday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week, and hopefully you got the chance to take some time for yourself. If not, why not take a break today and pamper yourself a little bit?
One of my favorite drinks to enjoy during spring and summer is the Iced Passion Tea Lemonade from Starbucks. It’s so refreshing and summery, the perfect way to cool off on a hot day. I often make it myself at home using the Tazo Passion Herbal Tea. Continue Reading

Wow, what a week it has been here in the Stark household. Between a three day power outage and both my husband and I getting sick in the midst of it, we’ve certainly been having a time over here. Thank God for our parents who gave us hot meals and a place to shower, and thank God for my husband who kept our water supply stocked and our generator running while dealing with his own illness. Luckily, the power is back on today and we’re both finally starting to recover. I’m beyond happy to feel like myself again, and especially to have running water. Continue Reading
Lately I have been trying to make a lifestyle change. A change that will allow me to take better care of myself, slow down, and appreciate life more. I’m doing this through a number of ways.
First of all, I’m looking at it from a physical standpoint. I’m being much more conscious about what I put into my body and how I treat my body. Instead of obsessing over a number on the scale and counting every calorie, point, gram of fat, etc., I’m trying to switch my focus to eating foods that I know are nourishing to my body, drinking plenty of water, and being more physically active. I’ve always believed that moderation is key, so I still enjoy going out to eat and the occasional junk food. The difference now is that I don’t feel guilty about indulging in these things when I know I’m making much healthier choices the other 90% of the time. But I know myself, and I know that if I never allow myself to have pizza again, I’m not going to stick to that lifestyle. Continue Reading
Spring is just around the corner, and I for one cannot wait. Even though our winter has been extremely mild here in Michigan this year, it still feels like we’re finally starting to come out of a long hibernation. We had a few days last month when February decided to give us a little taste of spring. My husband and I spent most of it outside getting things done around the house. He was able to take his bike out for a ride and I went on a long walk with my mom. We even started getting some quotes for the new deck we’re building this spring 🙂 Continue Reading
