Wow has our little angel changed over the last 12 months. I was looking through all of our albums and decided to post my favorites of 2011. xoxo- Dana
Happy New Year – here’s to an even better 2012!
Healthy gift baskets! I used to bake with my mom and grandma during the holidays and I loved the idea of making gifts for family and friends. This year I wanted it to be 100% healthy so I decided to channel my creative energy into another Christmas project…healthy gift baskets! (These could double as New Year gifts too)
I went down to the Dekalb Farmer’s market and loaded up on items that people typically do not have on their grocery list. The farmer’s market is a great place to buy in bulk without breaking the bank. Here is what I picked up….
Then some of my favorite supplements that I threw into the baskets in addition to the above….
Finished the baskets off with my favorite hand written recipes containing all of the healthy goods!
There is nothing like giving a loved one the gift of health
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Graduating from college is one of the life milestones I just expected to do growing up, my husband definitely did not have it as easy as I did. This explains the tears in my eyes and my parent’s eyes as he moved his tassel to the other side of his cap. His college journey was definitely not as easy as mine! I was fortunate enough to graduate from high school and head right off to college (University of North Florida) after high school. I had support both emotionally and financially from my family and looking back I definitely took that for granted. My husband, Ben served our country for 7 years in the military right out of high school and he had the boys during that time too. He always knew that he wanted to go back to school but with a family and financial obligations he knew it was going to be a huge struggle. As soon as I finished my internship at Emory and was established in my career it was Ben’s turn and he went back to school to obtain his college education. It was not easy, he worked full time and went to school full time, during some of our major life moments including the birth of Lily last year and our wedding!
To my husband and hero, I am so proud of you babe!
