Oreo, well, she is our princess cat. She is an older cat that we rescued and her days are spent finding the warmest place in our home and laying there for hours. Rescue animals are the best!
Tomorrow we drive Drake, who also turned 20 last week, to Oregon State University. CRAP--when did that happen. Rye is now a manager where she works. Isabella quit gymnastics and jumped into ballet with zeal. Finnley started preschool. Our little family is growing up.
I'm hoping to write more on the blog this year. Nothing fancy or planned out in advance. I simply don't have time for that with 16 credits this semester. I started this blog as a way to document our life for my kids. I need to return to that style. With that in mind, it will be filled with pictures, random thoughts, our daily adventures, and my ups and downs as a mom, student, wife, and pagan. Expect to see a bit of everything this year.
I cook every day. Our plant based diet is exciting and I have learned so much with this new journey into preparing our meals without meat, dairy, cheese, and eggs. Are we perfect yet? Hardly. It's still challenging sometimes, especially when we travel. But you know what, its okay. We are moving forward with our goals and doing our best. We still live by the 80/20 policy and find that our tummies are full and happy.
I'm not sure how many readers I have left but thank you to those that are still finding their way to our little bit of paradise at the beach.
Happy New Year!
