    Good morning! I recently had the opportunity to interview, Angela Bizzarri, Brooks Beast and sponsored athlete, via email. She has quite the impressive running career, winning three NCAA national championships in Cross Country as well as the NCAA Track national championships in the 5000 meters (outdoor) and 3000 meters (indoor). It was such a neat opportunity to chat […]

    Now that life has slowed down a bit, I’ve had a chance to stop and enjoy the little things in my life. I’ve talked in the past about how the little things are sometimes the big things and how even the smallest gesture can make a huge difference in someone’s day. Being home this week […]

    Good morning! How’s the week going so far? I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. Gotta love those Monday holidays! My Tuesday started bright and early like it usually does with a “baba,” cuddles, and an iced coffee on the couch with my favorite boy while watching “Mutt and Stuff.” Quinn loves this show. He gets such a […]

    This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Good morning, friends! Last week, I received a great question from a reader about my experience with diet and exercise, and how they helped me lose weight. Over the years, other people (both CNC readers and real life friends) have asked me this same question, so I figured it was time to […]
