I've been contemplating changing the layout of the blog for a while now. I adore most of it, but sometimes the all green background makes me want to switch things up. On one hand, it's unique and totally goes with what we stand for. Green, natural, organic. On the other hand, most blogs are white and I know that that makes content easy to read. So I'm debating. I almost changed it tonight, and have a layout in mind, I just haven't committed.
I did however put up some awesome recipes today for you all.
Apple Cider Cabbage
Maple Thyme Carrots
Roasted Beet Salad
Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie Soup
I also posted an awesome cardio workout today for Fitness Friday.
This week has been a busy one for Mr. Charming and I so far. He's been hard at work at his new office, and on his off time he's being doing a lot of photography. His latest newborn session was so fun to shoot, baby Harlem was such a good baby and her photos came out so cute!
I've been a busy bee with writing, as our magazine is going into production of our Summer 2014 issue, and I am proud to announce I will be editing this issue! It's a dream come true and I'm so honored to be a part of the team I am on. Writing is a large part of my world. And I'm blessed that I can wake up each day and create stories about things I'm passionate about.
I missed week two of ballet this week (way to be, I know), but in my slacker defense, a lost dog had wandered into our yard and we were able to get him scanned for a chip and we returned him home for a happy reunion! It made me really think about getting another puppy. Now that I am working from home more, I would love a little companion for our black lab. He adores being social and I think it'd be good for him. He's pretty much our child. He also eats gluten, grain and soy free. It's helped him SO much. His thyroid levels were pretty much non-existent last year, so along with his medication, we changed his diet. He lost a lot of weight and is super fit and healthy, runs daily, his skin issues cleared up and he generally has more energy now. The vet commented that he doesn't look or act like an 11 year old dog, and that makes me happy. To know we can take the best care of him while he is here with us. Some photo adorableness for your viewing pleasure.
I hope you all have a blessed Good Friday and take time today to thank Jesus for what He did for us. I spent the morning with my devotional and enjoyed this yummy Berry Coconut smoothie recipe I concocted this morning. I usually stick to fruits, but I made sure I packed it with spinach this morning to get some folate into my body.
Have a happy and blessed Easter everyone!
