Even though I always take the opportunity to indulge on this annual event, I always keep some healthy holiday tips in mind so my night doesn’t end in a food coma. Continue reading

It was October and I was still a bit in denial that summer was over. As much as I love wearing sweaters and scarves and eating butternut squash soup and apple cake, I found it difficult to put away my sundresses and stop pretending that peaches still taste good this time of year.
