Have you started the new year with a goal or resolution to be healthier? Like many people, that’s exactly how I started the new year several years ago. Today I’m sharing how that goal turned into my passion for clean eating.
The Beginning of My Journey
In January of 2013, at the age of 45, I did what most people do and set out to start the new year with goals of eating better and working out more.

I knew I wanted to change some of the unhealthy foods my family and I were eating and I wanted to start a new workout regimen.

My holiday home tour has become something totally different than I planned it to be but it’s a true reflection of who I am and where I am in my life right now.
