Pumpkin Gingersnap Granola

IMG_6679

Mmmm gingersnaps! They are my absolute favorite cookie ☺️🍪. My aunt makes me some every year for my birthday (which is in July!), even though they’re typically made around the holidays! The kick of ginger and the sweetness of the molasses make them perfect for when the weather gets cooler. I used those cookies and my love of pumpkin and came up with this recipe! 🍂

Now, just like any avid snacker, I love granola, but sometimes it can be quite expensive and loaded with sugar and artificial flavors. So to kill two birds with one stone I decided to make my own. Its way easier than you think! This recipe in particular is ahh-mazing and makes your house smell like fall…no candles needed! (Look at that! Another two for one!) Continue reading

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful Fall weather! So today I’m wrapping up the second half of my Germany trip, which includes Berlin and an overnight stay in a castle. Continue reading

Castle on the Hill: Germany Day 1 and 2

IMG_6582

Guten Morgen! Or good morning for those of you that don’t speak German! I just got back from Germany the other day, and I had to share my trip! Honestly, Germany had never been high on my list of places that I wanted to visit. After spending a week there though, it has definitely become one of the places I recommend visiting before you die. Between the castles and charm of the Rhine, to the history and culture in Berlin, there’s something for everyone. (Also, I highly recommend going in October, the leaves changing colors just made it seem like something out of a book. 🍂) Continue reading

Healthy, Easy, Yummy (Hey!) Snack Ideas

Happy Thursday! And happy fall! It’s funny even though it’s October here it still feels like July! We’ve had a few cool days but it’s still so stinkin’ hot. I need it to cool down because sweatshirts will forever be my favorite clothes!

Anyways, onto the actual subject of this post…my favorite thing, FOOD! Today I’m talking snacks, and healthy ones too. Unfortunately, those sweet sugary snacks don’t leave you full or give you energy for very long. So, when I started working 12-hour shifts I had to do a little nutrition makeover. I needed quick, easy to eat, filling and yummy snacks. Below I’ve listed eight that made the cut! Continue reading

How to do Colorado like a Coloradan

Ah home sweet home! There’s no place like it! And lucky for me, I get to call Colorado home. Rocky Mountains, no humidity and downtown Denver? Does it get any better?! Sadly, I only get home two or three times a year, so when I do go home I make sure to do my favorite things. I got to see my dad for the first time since Christmas, and my boyfriend tagged along this year so I couldn’t have been happier. Continue reading

Six Christian Books To Change Your Heart

IMG_6395

I looooove to read but honestly it took me a long time to pick up a Christian book. I was perfectly happy with my Divergent, Hunger Games and Covenant series (I’ll probably do a regular book post at some point. This series is SO good. I’ve read it three times 🙈). So I was nervous about Christian books, I thought they would be hard to get into…but dang I was wrong! Below are my favorite Christian books. Four of them are stories and two of them are non-fiction. Regardless of what type they are, they all left me with something I didn’t even know I needed. Continue reading

Hey-o, hope everyone is doing well! So one of the main reasons I started this blog was to share with you helpful things that I find. So here is my latest epiphany! It’s actually a video I discovered and I thought that I would really be the only one to be able to tell a difference in my makeup, but I was wrong! My sister after she saw some pictures from my trip to Colorado texted me and said, “Tell me your secrets, you look like a model”! I may have actually laughed out loud at that statement but I sent her the link to the video with all the secrets. Now makeup isn’t exactly something I’m really good at so I’m giving this lady credit for that comment!

The Perfect Combo: Summer and Greek Food

IMG_6348

After spending so much time in Greece I not only fell in love with the history and art but the food! Oh my gosh. It’s all very light and flavorful. I’m always looking for Mediterranean places to eat, and it finally occurred to me that I should make my own! I found this recipe on Aunt Bee’s Recipes blog and tweaked it just a little. After making it just once, I added it to my favorites and wanted to share it with everyone! It would be selfish to keep something this good to myself! Continue reading
