Years ago, I was flying back from a work assignment in Sydney, Australia, and I sat next to a woman on the plane who had just moved her whole family (husband and three kids) from Atlanta, Georgia, to Sydney, Australia. I asked her why - if it was for a job, if she had family… Continue reading The Best Way to Go Through Change
To be perfectly honest, my eating habits these days haven't exactly been healthy. I don't have any new recipes to share because I've cooked, oh, once in the past month. I'd say getting married is a good enough excuse though, right? The past few weeks we've been riding the post-wedding wave -- we're still on… Continue reading Peace. Love. Joy.
After months of planning (and regretful neglect of this blog) Ross and I are tying the knot tomorrow in Dallas (woo hoo!). We feel so lucky to have the love of such dear family and friends around us right now. I have no doubt it will be an incredible weekend. We can't wait to let… Continue reading I’ll be back…
One year ago today I posted this and Meggsalad was born. I'm teetering somewhere between "I can't believe I've really kept this going one. whole. year." and "wait, it's only been a year?" These past twelve months have probably been my busiest yet in my 26 years. But at the same time they've been the… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Meggsalad!
A group did this experiment at a metro stop in Stockholm to see if they could get more people to take the stairs over the escalator. They turned the stairs into piano keys. Think Tom Hanks in Big. Hidden cameras caught 66 percent more people taking the stairs that day. It proves their fun theory: the… Continue reading Make it Fun
I had the opportunity this weekend to hear couples therapist Harville Hendrix speak. Hendrix and his wife created the Imago Relationship Therapy and he's written several books including "Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples," he's been on Oprah ... you get the idea: he's an expert. Appropriate timing for me to hear… Continue reading Attitude of Gratitude
If it's true what they say: Love feeds the soul, then Friday I had the 72 oz steak. This weekend Ross (remember, boyfriend and guinea pig?) asked me to marry him. And I said, "YES!" My feet have yet to hit the ground. We had the most incredible weekend celebrating with family and friends. How… Continue reading Love.
Hello! Are you happy, maybe relieved, perhaps excited, to see something at the top of this blog besides quinoa? I know, I know, it's been awhile, two weeks to be exact, without a post. More seasoned bloggers out there are judging and saying to themselves: The novelty has worn off, posts are growing less frequent,… Continue reading It’s Been A Long Week
Last weekend was Bride-to-Be's bachelorette party in Mexico. Don't worry rooms, I'll only talk about the food here... So, one of the nights we were treated to a personal cook and a bartender, compliments of Bride's amazing future in-laws. It was about 4 p.m. when things got rolling. The team arrived bearing booze and fish. Alex,… Continue reading Dragon Fruit and Conch, Oh My
No, I don't like egg salad. I don't even like eggs. Any way. I hate them actually. I try to like them. But I fail. I gag. It's gross. I love the idea of an omlet with lots of stuff in it, like spinach, tomatoes, onions, broccoli, black beans, cheese... sounds delicious, right? I've actually… Continue reading Like EGG salad … but I don’t.
