Why I Eat White Rice Instead of Brown Rice


This may come as a surprise to you, but I never cook brown rice. Like, ever. Instead, I cook and eat WHITE rice on a regular basis.

Top 10 Posts of 2016


When I look back at 2016, it's been a very rewarding year for me. 

I birthed my second child and watched him grow and develop. I also watched as my little girl transformed from a toddler to a little girl (all the feels!). I wrote my first ever e-book. I pushed myself to try out new things (like taking a dance class!), and to grow my business (I took a course on email marketing!).

And I'm proud of the posts that I shared with you guys this year.

Here are my top 10 favorite posts of 2016:
