New Year’s Brunch Menu

I can’t believe we are less than a week away from a new year and new decade! This definitely calls for a gathering with friends to celebrate. This easy menu for New Year’s brunch includes some black eyed peas for good luck, of course!

Apple Galette

All of the beautiful fall apples have me thinking about apple pie.  This Apple Galette or Rustic Apple Pie is a family favorite.  Our food allergies necessitated a few changes to my baking routine.  Gluten free baking can be intimidating but with the right ingredients, success possible! This recipe can be used with all-purpose flour as well!

Make This Weekend: Very Berry Yogurt Popsicles

Popsicles are our new obsession around here. Fruity, creamy anyway you can make them. There are a few great shops around but we can't go every day! I've played around with a few recipes I'll be sharing. These Very Berry Yogurt Popsicles are our favorite using yogurt. This is a great snack on a hot day and a fun summer breakfast, too.

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!






My Work From Home Style

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!






Small Businesses I Love
