Happy 2015! Our family had a great 2014 with two weddings, lots of family, friends and love. I unplugged for the past 2.5 weeks and really enjoyed not having my computer around. I left it in the office and did not use it very much.  We enjoyed lots of down time, no traveling, family time and organizing!

Some of the best of 2014:

Dairy Free Challenge

The December dairy free challenge ended up pretty good – I did some research on dairy, and we ate less in our house.
I’m not quite sold on the dairy alternatives but I feel like we will eat less dairy in our house as a result.  I think cheese is the hardest and one of the articles explaining it is addictive – which I totally believe!  Watch how you feel after eating cheese or dairy and see how your body is reacting to it – are you bloated? Be aware of how your body feels – maybe you have no reaction, or maybe your body is becoming inflamed. Everyone is different!

Here are a couple of articles if you are interested in dropping dairy!
