I'm back!

Hi conscious cultivators.... anybody still there? 

I can't believe its been two weeks since my last post. While I'm feeling a little bad for neglecting my blog and blog readers, I've very much enjoyed living life in the real world for awhile. 

One of my goals this summer was to spend less time on the computer and more time experiencing life. I've been camping, traveling to visit family, learning to play the guitar, and spending countless hours exploring the shores of Lake Superior. Plus, my husband and I are in the process of opening a new business. Needless to say, real life has been quite the adventure lately!

 I've still been keeping up with my power hour... although a toned-down, modified version that involves more trail runs and mountain bike rides and no actual time at the gym.

Results of a muddy trail-run. Power hour dedication, rain or shine?
Still eating LOTS of salads to keep up with the mass amount of greens that come each week in our CSA...

Leanne's Sunflower Cream Salad

Mollie Katzen's Lentil salad over a bed of greens, topped with hummus and tahini-miso sauce. Gourmet camping food!

 Mixed greens topped with veggies, hard-boiled eggs and TJ's spicy peanut dressing (new love)

And grilling lots of food for dinner (way too hot to cook indoors!)

And LOTS of home-made kombucha, made my the greatest kombucha brewer (and brother-in-law) in the world! This stuff knocks the socks off GT Dave's! 

I just started my own batch! Can hardly wait.

How have you been spending your summer? What do you do to detach from the blogosphere and experience what life is all about?


  1. Hey love! Welcome back :-) I'm so happy to hear that you've been having a beautiful summer. At first, I felt guilty for neglecting my blog at times, but it's so important to get out there to experience and enjoy the real world! YAY for real life adventures! Your salads looks lovely and tasty :-) ALL your photos are beautiful! Much love to you <3

  2. Thanks Alaina! Summer is too short to spend it inside :)
