Pregnancy After Loss

As I sit here and think about being pregnant after experiencing a loss, I’m struggling with how to even begin. After losing our baby at 11 weeks in April of this year, initially I wanted to get pregnant right away. I thought it would help relieve some of the pain and help me move on from losing that baby. But …

Our Recent Pregnancy Loss

Not many people know that Joe and I recently suffered a miscarriage. I found out right around Valentine’s Day this year that we were expecting our second baby. We were nervous but excited to welcome another little one into our home. Only to find out at our 11 week appointment that our baby had no heartbeat and had stopped growing …

Baby Enzo: 16 Month Update


Wow – it’s been 4 months since I’ve updated on little Enzo. A lot has changed over the past few months and he’s growing like crazy! Enjoys: walking around especially if he can carry things or kick a ball around, being outside as much as possible, eating a lot (and honestly it’s a lot!) and basketball. Dislikes: still hates brushing his teeth, …

Veggie Egg Muffins

DSC02155 (800x533)

It’s about time I posted a new recipe! These egg muffins are so easy to make and super versatile. You can add any veggies you want, leave out the quinoa and cheese for strict Paleo, change up the cheese or add meat. Enzo has been waking up between 5-6 a.m. lately (please just be teething) and he expects food the …

Goals for the New Year – Including More Posts!

I have not been doing well with writing posts this year, especially the last couple of months. I felt like I really didn’t have much to say and I have not been creating many new recipes at home. We’ve been sticking to pretty simple things (meat, roasted veggies and quinoa) or I’ve been trying out new recipes that I find …

Baby Enzo: 12 Month Update

I’m a little late but here’s Enzo’s one year update! I can’t believe we’re past the one year mark. Insane how fast time is truly flying by. Enjoys: crawling at lightening speed, pulling to stand on everything, throwing food and toys (not my fav), and getting into the kitchen cupboards. Dislikes: brushing his teeth, getting licked in the face by Annie …

Reflection on My Postpartum Depression

Now that Enzo is almost a year old, I’ve been flooded with so many emotions about what I experienced and went through almost a year ago. It can be crippling to take myself back to those dark places that I was in and it can be hard to remember those times. But it always reminds me to be thankful for …

Baby Enzo: 11 Month Update

One more month until we have a one year old on our hands? Seriously pinch me! Enjoys: crawling like crazy, pulling up to stand on anything he can, climbing the stairs (when we let him), swinging and trying to play in the dog’s water. Milestones: no walking but a crazy crawler. He is pulling up to stand on everything. I’m guessing it will …

Baby Enzo: 10 Month Update


Enjoys: crawling everywhere, trying to climb on things though he’s not that great at it, pretty much all food right now even veggies!, attempting to feed himself with a fork, and the puppies. Milestones: he is officially crawling and is all over the place. We have to watch him like a hawk because he’s pretty quick. He always goes for shoes and …

Paleo Shepherd’s Pie

2015-07-13 (1)

This recipe is really quick to throw together and so tasty. The combination of lamb with creamy mashed sweet potatoes is so delicious. If you don’t like the taste of lamb or can’t get access to it, you can substitute ground beef. You can mix in your favorite vegetables or mix up the spices however you want. This recipe is …
