my less serious birthday!

Today, my less serious life turns 1!

One year of blogging about food, fitness, fashion, and experiments.

Kashi Indigo Morning + Cheerios + banana + almond milk

One year of teaching myself to cook (and learning to love it), expanding my workout horizons (and getting in the best shape of my life), and stepping outside of my fashion comfort zone (and looking pretty great along the way {if I do say so myself}). 

One year of finding my place in the healthy living blog community, making blog friendships I am not sure how I lived without before, and finding comfort and support in a world of people just like me (no longer do I feel alone when I wake at 5 AM to run 10 miles or eat massive quantities of vegetables and nut butter). Thank you.

Romaine lettuce + spinach + grape tomatoes + carrots + smoked almonds + an Amy's Sonoma veggie burger + red wine vinegar + ketchup

One year of building a beautiful following of readers, some who comment, some who follow in silence, all of whom I cherish.  

One year leading to another. Here's to many, many more...
