Glory Bowl + It's Our Anniversary!
It’s been feeling a lot like fall lately, and I’m actually excited for a change in season. I love watching the leaves turn color and cool mornings with hot drinks. Today marks one of two things: a) 6 year anniversary with the boy and 2) my birthday is month from today and I turn the big 2-5. A quarter of a century year old. I have mixed feelings about this. But let’s focus on today!
This is going to sound so cheesy, but…6 years ago today I started dating this amazing guy. He is quirky (for lack of a better word), smart, and incredibly thoughtful. He makes me laugh constantly. I love being around him. He understands me & I’m not afraid to speak my mind. He’s so supportive…I know I am so lucky to have him in my life. We’ve had plenty of fun adventures, some, not so fun. Can’t wait to have many more adventures with him-so babe, get your ass out of camp!!! J

This is my last ‘summery’ post, but don’t worry, I have plenty of fall recipes line up for here!
This salad is currently on the top of my favorite foods list (a list that constantly changes) as it’s a vibrant, healthy salad that leaves you feeling full for a very long time! Great for those long 12 hour shifts I'm accustomed to!
