An New Project.

Just a serious heads up as to the lack or posts past and the lack of posts in the future- I'm currently in the process of launching a brand-spanking new blog with a very dear friend. The quiet here is not a neglect of you, but rather, a serious commitment to making this new endeavor a great one. 

We have high hopes for the new site (which I will be providing the details to shortly). You will find featured beautifully curated art, design, style, local businesses and life (life according to us, naturally). 

I am so sorry to leave behind this blog (it's been a while, hasn't it?). But I look forward to the change of pace and aesthetic- which I believe you will greatly appreciate. 

Please stay tuned for details. I love you all so so dearly!

Photo Booth Outtakes

A couple snaps from my sister's wedding photo booth. It was such a beautifully fun night filled with family, friends, and lots and lots of photos. The very lovely and ever talented Two Pair Photography did a wonderful job with the photo booth and I know the sister and her new hubby are so excited to see the rest (as am I)!

How have you guys been?! I'm working on being better at not completely sucking at checking in here. I've also been contributing every so often to Digital Marketer in case you're into that sort of thing. You can read my latest review of Carrot (the mean to-do task manager app) here.

Vegan, Yo . . . Or Something Like It

Well, I've officially been vegan (well, more plant-based but you get the idea) for 2 weeks. And me oh my do I feel great. 

I know. Hell must've frozen over because Julie hasn't eaten cheese in 14 days. Hell must've frozen over twice because I just referred to myself in the 3rd person. I hate when Julie does that.

I've had energy to burn, I'm sleeping better, needing less sleep than usual in fact, and feel like I have more self-control than I've ever experienced. All in all, I'm kinda loving this. 

Here's a little roundup of the things I've attempted at making these last two weeks and ones I just can't wait to try!

1. Cashew Cream "Cheese" - so good with dates on toast or crackers.
2. Pho inspired noodle bowl from My New Roots - Best pho broth i've ever had and my new favorite food blog. She's so inspiring!
3. Green Thai curry - Easy peasy and I've probably eaten it for 5 meals so far.

Here are a few dishes that look too good to pass up. They'll make their way into my kitchen (and tummy) very soon!

1. Apple kale salad
2. Tomato and rosemary soup
3. Blood orange braised cabbage and barley (!!!!)
