salad with tuna
starting on october 1st i've embarked on a huge life style change.  i've been on a whole food cleanse for 9 days and it is absolutely amazing.  i feel amazing.  my diet currently consists of tons of veggies, lean meats, fish (and some sausage) and eggs (no sugar, grains, legumes, dairy or alcohol).  everything is made from scratch.  i don't want to call it a diet, so i won't, but i read the book "It Starts with Food" and the program is called Whole30 and it is truly wonderful.  30 days of clean eating.  It's suppose to help repair damages in your body, get rid of sugar cravings....reset EVERYTHING.  as far as i can tell it is working.  i haven't felt this good in years.

random summer photos

These are the best tortilla chips EVER (trader joes organic stone ground).  They are even better
when paired with my mom's tex-mex dip!  holy goodness!

weekend tv watching.  messy living room.  levi in a crate.

moose hill - i love going grocery shopping in the early morning or around dusk just to see
this view.

roasting marshmallows on the deck

this summer i've embarked on a no grain diet and i feel amazing.  this is my all organic cheese burger salad
complete with garden tomatoes and oven roasted crispy french fries. YUM

my sparrow fae.  she is growing up so fast.

he still wakes up really early sometimes and comes into bed with me.

my zucchini egg bake - what i eat for breakfast most mornings

this summer has flown by :(

this summer has been the fasted summer of my life.  i don't know why it flew by so fast.  i'm very sad about it though.  life is just so crazy these.  here is a pic of my kids from last night.  both are in need of a haircut - but who has time for haircuts when there's swimming to be had???? 

i haven't picked up my real camera all summer (well maybe a couple times), i've been using my iphone for photos, it's just so easy & convenient.  that's why this little space has been left behind.  i've been posting over on instagram pretty often.  you can find me @summerlilyg  if you would like to follow along :-)
