This weekend we celebrated my niece’s 3rd birthday. My niece Jazaleia (Jazzy for short) is my only niece and the only grandchild. She is the cutest and most adorable little girl and all her Aunties spoils her with attention. I love spending time with her. She’s at that age where you can have a […]
I’m walking on sunshine….. Today, I was reminded how great it is to live in Southern California. It was clear, sunny and just right :) I left my house with a great smile and say ahhhhh, sunshine. I ran errands during lunch, it was an excuse to soak up the sun while I can. The […]

I created this pancake and topping combination during my run today. During my cool down, my mind started thinking about breakfast. I had a nice and short run this morning, trying to keep my legs fresh for my 10K Turkey Trot tomorrow morning. I have been eating a lot of red food lately and it […]
