Here are a handful of facts about myself…For all the above combined. 😉

  • I have never broken a bone, though I have dislocated ones ridiculously often.
  • I am (slightly) afraid of escalators. Yes, I am an adult.
  • I won a science fair award in middle school for a project on boomerangs.
  • My favorite book is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
  • My close second favorite book is De Anima, by Aristotle
  • I lived in Paris when I was in middle school while my mom when to Le Cordon Bleu
  • I love any and all things outdoors, and worked in the outdoor sports industry for years, but have never been downhill skiing.
  • I love clouds, fog, and rain and get grumpy when it’s too sunny for too long.
  • I trip over my own feet a lot. Yoga has not helped my clutziness.
  • I have never eaten bacon, even in my pre-vegetarian days.
  • I really, really love cats though I don’t have one

Ok that’s enough…Now for a quick recipe to wrap up this looong post

PBJ Smoothie


  • 2 cups spinach (optional…I just really like green smoothies 🙂 )
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1 tbs peanut butter
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup your choice of milk (almond milk goes really well here!)


Blend in a blender until you get a nice smooth texture. Enjoy!
