The Lost Art of Eating In {Guest Post by Breathe & Nourish}

While I’m taking some time away from blogging (ie. spending my days at the library & swimming with my kids), I’ve asked some of my most awesome friends, & blogger friends to step in & guest post.

Let’s stay in touch.


Thanks for all your love & support about me stepping away from the blog for a bit so I can fully embrace the summer with my family.

I have a line-up of some fabulous guest posts set for the next while, & I am excited for you to get to know these awesome people. So, even though I won’t be front & center, there will be at least one weekly guest post on the blog.

If you’re not on the free update list (this is different from receiving posts by email), you can sign up here (again, it’s FREE!).

My updates are a great way to stay in touch, & it’s stuff I don’t share on the blog.

And, of course, I’ll still make time for occasional pinning throughout the summer, so follow me on...
