Thankful Thursday: Life Unplugged & Photo Fun

Long time, no see, right? While I'm sorry for my absence in keeping you supplied with yummy gluten-free & vegan recipes, I'm not sorry for the time I've spent away from the computer. It's been a busy few weeks with new projects and business opportunities. I've spent a lot of time on the health coaching side of things, but I've also made a conscious effort to stay away from the computer more often.

As an introvert, the internet has become my greatest playground, but every once in awhile I have to step away. It's important for me to stil have real life interactions, real life  dates, and real life views [my eyes need a break from pixels, after all]. I truly believe that all of our modern day interaction with technology isn't healthy. In fact, if I spend the entire day on the computer, I know go to bed feeling stressed and wired up. But at the same time, I find so much inspiration and entertainment online that I cannot stay away for long.

It's all about the balance...which is one of the many things I'm thankful for today. Here are some of the others:

♥ Finding Jawbreaker on HuluPlus last night [it was one of my high school favorites...though still not as good as finding Heathers on Netflix] ♥ Purchasing a gorgeous Betsey Johnson dress on Ebay for a steal [very Carrie Diaries] ♥ Admitting to my new guilty pleasure: The Carrie Diaries [it's no Sex and the City, but it's just stylish enough to quell my cravings] ♥ A yummy gift & cute sticker from Callie at Rawxies [seriously guys, you need to try the mint chocolate flavor, it's so good!] ♥ New stickers for Health Happiness & Hula Hoops [given to anyone who refers a friend for a free health consultation w/ me] ♥ New health coaching website design featuring photos from the very talented Katie Graves [see below for a taste & like the Health Happiness & Hula Hoops facebook page to see the rest as they're posted] ♥
