s September rolls in, Summer really feels on the way out. I often struggle a bit during this season change because I love summer with every fiber of my being, but I also feel the same way about Fall. If I could enjoy each of those seasons for about six months I'd be one happy gal.Read More
When we started our August round of the Whole30, I had fleeting thoughts that we'd never make it. Now, here we are on day 30, four weeks of a nutritional reset behind us, and I couldn't be more ready to move forward with the reintegration process!Read More
Here I am rounding out week 3 of my Whole30, and friends, I couldn't be more ready to continue with my whole #CaitGoesPaleo plan. I had *planned* on writing short, weekly updates to share my journey with you this month, but I started back at school last week (I'm a high school teacher) so needless to say, I've been a little busy getting back into the swing of things.Read More
Where does one begin when starting a Whole30? It can be daunting, I know. Even though I’ve completed one whole round, it’s still a huge undertaking. But what seems hard at first starts to be old hat by week two, and honestly, the more you prep, the easier your 30 days will be.Read More
Now that August has arrived, the end of summer countdown has started for me. Even though school doesn’t officially start until the 18th, I’ll be in my classroom from here on out with meetings, prepping, and finally getting my new room put together. I guess it’s time to wrap up my endless days of leisurely reading.Read More
Even though the Whole30 is becoming pretty popular, some readers might be brand new to the concept. I’d thought I’d kick of my Wellness Wednesdays posts by sharing a little bit about it and why I love it so much.Read More
For the last three years, I’ve been in an on-again, off-again relationship with the Paleo lifestyle.
But today is the start of a new road in my health journey.
Let me tell you a story.
A monthly roundup of my Instagram reviews for July!
Featuring lots of middle grade novels as well as some adult fiction!
Last Friday, I turned in the keys that unlocked my first ever teaching job.
For the past three years, I've been a junior high (grades 6-8) English Language Arts teacher at a small rural school, just outside my community. It's been quite a ride these last three years, yet pretty much from day one I've contemplated quitting. See, I never felt called to be a teacher. I originally went to school for a liberal English and writing degree with the idea that I’d become a novelist and open a children’s book store....Read More

I often think firsts are exciting.
Think about it. First steps. First time riding a bike. First kiss. First pets. All these things bring such excitement and joy to mind.
But firsts around the internet are hard.
First blog posts. First tweets. First photos published.
They all leave such a lasting first impression. Often, they are what introduce you out into the big wide world of the internet.
