I hope you enjoyed the first part of the Exploring Wellness Holiday Wish List.  Here are some more wellness wishes from my blog readers. The Vegetarian Yoga Instructor PP is a vegetarian, full-time teacher, and part-time yoga instructor.  Her “dream gift?” … a juicer so I can make delicious and nutritious vegetable and fruit smoothies […]

For the past few weeks I’ve been soliciting you, my blog readers, for your holiday wellness wish lists.  Selfishly, I was hoping your desires would spur me to realizing what I wanted for the holiday season.  (We celebrate Christmas and then, a few short weeks after, I have a birthday.)

A Thanksgiving Recap

I hope your Turkey Day was fantastic and filled your spirit as well as your belly.  Here are some scenes from ours. My hubby and I chopped until we dropped on Thanksgiving Eve.  Our fridge was, shall we say, a bit overtaxed last night.  Thankfully, the brine and turkey fit nicely in a cooler on […]
