I’m SO thrilled to share with you the first of many posts about our Chicago condo aka our #ambitioushome. While we aren’t quite as settled in as I would’ve hoped (because hello, life), we’ve taken our time decorating to ensure that we really love everything we purchase.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing our master bedroom tour so be sure to come back for the full reveal. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about the best bed I’ve ever slept on (my own bed). Seriously, it has been life changing.

Hey friends! This week has flown by like crazy, no? I can’t complain because I feel like Spring is only a month or two away. I’m eagerly waiting for the warmth to return so I can take out my bike and the trails — there’s something rejuvenating about the wind against you and rays of sunshine beating warm on your sweat-kissed skin.

Last Saturday (1/21/17) was a day that I’ll never forget. Most of you already know that Tony proposed (and that I said yes!) but I wanted to write out not only our engagement story, but our love story right here, so that I could keep it forever.

Hi guys! How are you on this glorious Friday? I’m so excited to be officially back with my weekend favorites. As you’ve probably realized, it’s been a completely insane past few months so I had to stop doing them for a while, but I’m happy that I’m trying to get back into a regular blogging routine. It’s always fun to save my favorite posts and share them with you on Fridays.

Actually my hope is to do a completely photobomb of my life lately on the blog soon. But for now this purple sweet potato will have to do. You can catch how I made it on my Instagram.

Thank you SO much for all of your comments, touching thoughts and prayers on my last wellness post. Your support is like a breath of fresh air as my heart longs for compassion and understanding. Often these posts are much easier to write then they are to say, because saying them makes it true and real, and all the things bubble up to the surface that you never knew hurt so much.

So here we are: Part Two of my Wellness Story. Part two of me just laying it all out there. Writing nonsensically because it makes sense to me.

So, can we chat about Audiobooks for a quick sec? Who else has started listening to audiobooks > reading? *Raises hand*

As much as I adore reading and cozying up in a corner chair for an afternoon, I find myself never having the time anymore, but I still enjoy escaping into a suspenseful story or feeling connected to a heart-gripping memoir. That’s where Audible comes in.

Tony recently got both the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot and we downloaded Audible. It’s been amazing because while I’m baking in the kitchen or writing blog posts, I can listen to a story and feel like I’m actually there. The narrators do a wonderful job at making each book come alive, and through your imagination, you can envision yourself within each storyline.

There’s beauty in not know what the future may hold for you. Don’t you think? It kind of builds this crazy sense of excitement in planning and anticipating what will come next.

For me, I’ve been so thrilled to see Ambitious Kitchen grow and flourish over the years.

Right now I find myself anticipating what’s  could be next, and for some reason, I have this crazy feeling that 2017 might just be the best year I’ve ever had. I have so many things planned:launching healthyglow.co, a site change, finishing up my cookbook proposal, traveling, decorating my home, and of course, starting my rug shop!

Hi hi hi! This week in between sharing healthy recipes, I’m going to go over some of YOUR favorite recipes from 2016. The ones that were most clicked on, made and devoured over this crazy year.

First though, a few thanks are in order!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here and making my recipes. You make doing what I love possible and I would never be here without you.
