How A Pair of Sandals Saved My Sanity (On Pursuing Goals Outside of Motherhood)

The first ever guest post on TCK! I’ve been very hesitant of letting others share on this space that I created, but when I saw Amanda’s Facebook Live video on my personal feed, I jumped at offering her this platform to share this story. I think it’s so relatable, and has an amazing message. If this community can rally and support Amanda in his selfless cause, it would just make my heart explode with gratitude!

Chilled Avocado Crema with Bacon & Chives

It all started with some coffee. Really. My local coffee spot, ChadLou’s started carrying these beautiful hand made mugs. I’ve posted a few times on Instagram when I go to there, it’s such a cool little joint and the owner has impeccable taste. Like you could shoot a whole lifestyle thing there.

My Paleo-versary! Reflecting on the last 365 days of Paleo.

It’s my birthday. Today I turn thirty one. The last year of my life has been the most transformative of my life. This day last year marks the completion of my first Whole30. It also marks the end of the hardest times in my life. I was extremely depressed, sick, lonely and isolated this time last year. We had just moved to O’ahu. I didn’t know anyone yet. My HS (hidradenitis suppurativa, my autoimmune disease) as out of control. I was the heaviest I had ever been. Even my hair…
