Top Posts of 2012

This has been an extremely blessed, successful, and full of happiness kind of year which I am forever grateful for! Of coarse I’m sad it’s coming to an end, and that my littles are growing up faster than beyond my control, but I am excited for the new adventures that next year will bring! (A new job/state/friends/far away from loved ones/etc.)

To add to that, this blog in general has grown beyond my imagination and I can’t even begin to thank and send virtual hugs to those that have been readers, sent kind emails, comments, tweets, etc. my way. I want you to know I read and appreciate!

  4. I’m late commenting on this post but the reason I am doing so is that I am a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due, and my friend, that cilantro, avocado, spinach, chickpea, quinoa whatever salad is just phenomenal! It is my go-to healthy dish to bring to potlucks – everyone loves it and I know I am going to be eating at least one healthy thing that day! Plus it’s totally cleanse friendly and I’m doing a Wild Rose Detox (my annual tradition!) right now and I just love that salad. It gets the absolute thumbs-up from people I know who don’t eat anything that isn’t out of a carton or over processed, so that’s always a win!

    • You are so amazing Anna, do you know that!! Thank you for always leaving such amazing comments, sharing my recipes on your blog, and just being you!
      Thanks again and good luck on your Detox, I need one of those after the holidays for sure!!
