Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes (gluten free!)

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next Thursday already?! Time is just flying by! Since starting my full time job as a registered nurse, there hasn’t been a whole lot of cooking going on and even less time experimenting in the kitchen. I love my job, but I wish there were more hours in the day to do other things that I love too. I have been looking ahead to Thanksgiving and planning what I want to make. And I’m getting really excited about the holiday, especially because of something new we are starting this year. We are fortunately...

The Alarm Clock

It is easy to get caught up in seeing people through only one lens. Sometimes it is the way others present themselves; sometimes it is assumptions we make. Even when we think we understand what someone is going through, it can be hard to truly understand what they are experiencing unless we get a chance to walk a mile in their shoes or see the world through their eyes. In nursing we sometimes assume that we truly understand what our patients are going through. And to a certain extent, we do. We understand their disease process more than most...

1st Tears

2

I cried at work for the first time. And I’m sure it won’t be the last time either. A dear man that I had been caring for for the last couple of days got the results back from a biopsy and found out that he had cancer…again… As we stood there with the man and his wife, watching the tears form in his eyes and seeing her silent tears fall, my heart ached for them both. They have faced this road twice before and are not sure that they can stand to walk it again. There are no right...

Summer Reset- Day 10

Happy 4th of July! I knew today was going to be different than my usual days because of the holiday. We had plans to go to a grill out at my parent’s. It was a fun time; most of my family was able to be there. We talked, played some games, ate dinner together and had homemade ice cream. Yummy!! Because of the change in the routine, I was sure to fit in my exercising in the morning because I wasn’t sure if I would have time or energy to do it in the evening. I did forget to...

Summer Reset- Day 9

Today was one of those days that I had to practice rolling with the punches. I babysat 3 of my friend’s children again today while they moved into their new home. I offered to picked them up right after breakfast so I knew I would not have time to exercise in the morning. I would have to make time for it later. The kids all had a good time but there were some touchy...

Green Smoothie

Green Smoothie

As I mention in my post “Summer Reset- Day 6“, my husband has been making and drink these green smoothies for several months now, but it has taken me longer to get on board with them. I’m partial to my fruit smoothies. I finally tasted the smoothie again because it really is a great...

Banana Mocha Hemp Smoothie

Banana Mocha Hemp Smoothie

Before I tell you how to make this wonderful icy drink, there is a backstory. Until a few weeks ago I never drank coffee. I tried it a couple times and didn’t like the taste. I always loved the smell of coffee, just not the taste. Now, my husband LOVES coffee! And he has...

Dairy Free Creamy Potato Soup

Dairy Free Creamy Potato Soup

Last week I was squeezing in some last-minute shopping before the first big snowstorm of the season moved in. It was scheduled to start mid-afternoon and become really heavy during the rush hour. Which meant that my poor hubby would have a couple of hours of working and driving in the snow before he...
