We’re taking off on a little family vacay this week. Hoping to take Marlowe to the pyramids (ruins) of Tulum, eat Ital food in Jamaica, and do whatever other fun adventures come our way. I’m staying hopefully that I’ll feel well enough to do most anything I want. And I’m continuously reminding myself that I need to try to sleep as often as I can. That the person who once happily slept 6 hours a night is no more– and I do better with 12. Insert wide eyed *holy crap* emoji— but seriously, I require a lot of sleep these days. And I’ll be allowing myself to get acupuncture treatments as necessary 😉

I’m super happy Alex got the week off so we could do this. It’s not super common for it to happen during season in the tourist industry, but it did and we’re grateful. I’ve packed a suitcase with coloring books (our favorite), a mindfulness program book, and a bikini.

I recently stumbled upon our old california vacation photos. I die of happiness each time I see them. They’re really some of my favorite photos. It makes me more excited to get out there with my family, adventure, and hopefully get a few good shots in there along the way <3

I have some colorful posts scheduled for this week– I hope you’ll check them out 🙂 And of course, I’ll still be on instagram too. For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you have a wonderful day. And if you’re interested, you can always check out my big post on vegan Holiday dishes 🙂 And if you haven’t yet, you can always pre-order my cookbook! It’ll be here in LESS THAN A MONTH! Crazy, right? I hope you have a great week, guys. As always, I’m thankful you’re here and somehow part of my life– I don’t know how I got so lucky with that, really.

Happy new week, friends. 


  1. How wonderful, I hope you have a fantastic time. A very good friend of mine lives in Jamaica, I dream of going to visit her one day. CJ xx
