I am a California native, residing in Chicago, and living a life I love!! A lover of puns, anything sports related, series books, documentaries, eating, anything health and fitness related, new experiences, meeting new people, and traveling!

I created this blog because I believe we all need to share more, love more, and give more. My blog centers around promoting health and giving fitness tips; food; product reviews; people you should know; small business support; special events; traveling; and self reflections. My goal is to inform, inspire, and motivate. A true testament of living a well balanced life, because it is possible to eat good and live great!

  • Food: This can be a combination of things – ranging from a review of a particular restaurant, recipe, food event, food product, food company.
  • Product Review: My own opinion and thoughts of a particular product.
  • People You Should Know: This is very dear to my heart, in these interviews, my goal is to inspire, motivate, and welcome people to the extraordinary people in my life who have faced adversity, major road blocks and have defeated such difficulties with admiration. Their stories are real and raw.
