If you consider yourself a “creative” (a term I kind of hate using because aren’t we all creative in some way? Also it just brings to mind imagery of every smug “creative” type I’ve ever known and puts a bad taste in my mouth which is admittedly my own baggage but maybe you relate? This intro is already too long), then maybe you’ve gone through a slump.
A period of days or weeks or months (hi.) or even years (hello!) when your brain and heart just didn’t combine forces to do the thing you ...
Why Weight loss?
I mentioned over in this post that Justin and I started Weight Watchers at the beginning of the year, and then kind of breeeeezed on past that to talking about cooking.

Here are the 6 things I’ve worn a million times (at ...
The hubs and I joined Weight Watchers at the beginning of the year, (more on that later), around the same time we started trying to stick to a budget, and a funny thing has been happening.
