I have known (assumed) for 3 years now that I have a genetic disease called Ehler’s Danlos Syndrome. But a few weeks ago I went into the Brigham & Women’s Adult Genetics Center in Boston to meet with some Genetic Specialists to get my official diagnosis.  The appointment was easy, and mostly painless. They took… Read more »

I’m back from my week in Naples, Florida! I’ll do a couple posts about it… but this one will just be about the FOOD! I ate some pretty fabulous things over the week.

Camping!

You know what?  I love camping. Man, I really do love camping. I love the views, the sounds, the eats!, and oh.. the smells!  Clean dewy mountain air is an incredible smell.  The water there tastes like liquid heaven – and I hate water!

One day, I won’t be so lazy and I will film a video (because talking is always easier than typing!)  but for today… let the typing commence! Here’s some of… Read more »

Wow, it’s summer time. I’d love to say that I’m here with a fabulous recipe or some fun news to share… but alas, this is me we’re talking about it!  All I can offer you is a random photo dump from my phone… So if you’re interested in what I’ve been eating and doing lately,… Read more »

{Not} Believing I Can Do It.

I watched a girl walked across a parking lot. I watched her walk in her skinny jeans on her skinny legs. Her body moved quickly and with ease, as if no air was displaced by her. It seems to me that thin people aren’t affected by gravity. Perhaps those high heels are weighted to just… Read more »

No Poo

I want to talk about my trials in No Poo! First, for those who haven’t heard of this – No Poo simply means not using commercial shampoo and conditioner on your hair. Why?
