Exercise Girls on Instagram Are Annoying

I need to get something off my chest. And speaking of chests…exercise girls on Instagram are annoying. They’re annoying because under the guise of “health” and “getting fit” they flaunt their bodies for attention. They wear skin tight leggings showing off their butt, and sports bras showing off their boobs and tight stomachs. They buy expensive, revealing “athletic wear” and take 1000 suggestive photos of themselves in front of their mirrors.  And then share it all over Instagram. But that’s not all.

Blackberry Foraging in the Florida Heat

This video is over 3 years old but it was deleted when my blog was accidentally deleted. I’m just now getting around to adding it back. It was a fun video to shoot and we had a great time making it. I was pregnant with Anna at the time but it was super, super hot so that wasn’t so fun.

How to Create a Two-Week Meal Plan in 5 Easy Steps

How to Find Produce to Can Without Gardening

It’s January 2017 so first things first- Happy New Year to you! It’s a new year and I’m already thinking about canning; I do not want to miss any veggie and fruit seasons this year. I’ve become a bit obsessed with canning even though I’ve only canned 4 times total in my life. They all have been with a water bath canner. I’m still too scared of my pressure canner but maybe this year that will change.

Opps! My Blog Was Deleted

The last three years of my blog’s content was deleted. Three years worth of articles, photos, design changes, and comments- gone. I was having a lot of buggy issues with the blog and WordPress so I asked Brian to help me fix it. He followed the advice of some person on YouTube without properly backing up my database and opps…gone.
