A Special Treat + the Small Things

Probably similar to most all of us right now, the days still seem to blend into the weeks, and even into the months. Have we really been in this pandemic and this quarantine lifestyle for almost six months now? Sadly we have been. Life is definitely still very different. Our weeks are far quieter than […]

A Walk in the Park

On any given day, you can find us walking or running along the ocean. And as much as I absolutely love living so close to the water, and being able to hear the waves crash, and smell that salty air. . .sometimes you just need a little greenery in your life. And yesterday morning was […]

Fall Travel Ants in My Pants

the most beautiful Fall leaves in Boston / November 2019 The air is definitely not starting to have any hints of Fall here in San Diego. But I all too well know and remember that things are starting to change elsewhere. Having (mostly) patiently waited out the pandemic (which is sadly still very much ongoing), […]

Tips for Keeping a Positive Perspective

I’ve been reflecting more on how the news is affecting our lives. And what I’ve started to notice, is that it seems like a lot of people’s perspectives and energy has become dependent on what kind of news that they are experiencing. For example, if there is positive news, then life will most likely feel […]

Let’s All Do Our Part

It’s been 103 days since California became the first state to go on lock-down to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (not that I’m counting or anything), and just a few short weeks now since things have started to re-open. Life has changed, that we can all agree on. And the only thing that I […]

Why We Buy Organic

It all began with GMO.ย  I can’t remember if I had heard something from someone, or read something somewhere. But either way, one day out of the blue I just knew that I didnโ€™t want to buy any more genetically modified foods, or foods that contained a long list of “ingredients.” Nope, no more science […]

Cocokind

While on our quest to transition our lives to be filled with only green, clean and organic basically everything, we found ourselves with an ever-growing list of things that we wanted to replace.  Our goal was simple, but the tasks seemed to be endless.  Especially when we started working on our health and beauty products. […]

My “Aha” Moment

sunday / the most beautiful yellow tulips from my in-laws These past few weeks have sort of had a theme for me – time and reflection. For months now, I have found myself struggling to make peace with the feeling of being busy. And as I had touched on a few weeks ago, yes, I […]

Being Home, Pasta + Dr. Seuss

I’m sure that it’s been apparent that I’ve been doing a lot of self reflecting lately, especially since I have written about it several times now. And something that I’m really realizing about myself more and more, is that I really cherish a quiet life. As much as I love to travel, to try new […]

Life Without Instagram: the Good, the Bad + the Truth

So it’s been 8 months and 19 days since I broke up with Instagram (not that anyone’s counting or anything), and I kind of can’t believe that it’s already been that long. In typical Katie fashion, I really had no plans on what this break would mean for me. Would it be for just a […]
