Avalanche Lake in Glacier National Park is standby for us each year. It’s one of the first trails to open every spring, and one of the last to close in the late fall. We tend to visit this lake at least twice a year and it’s just as gorgeous every single time.
For many years I was super dedicated to a weekly at home facial, and my skin definitely thanked me for it. However life does get crazy at times, and I’ve fallen out of this weekly habit. But ‘now’ is always a good time to jump back on the wagon so to speak, and I’ve been working on taking better care of my skin again.
Once upon what seems like a long time ago now, it was recommended to me to try eating grain free. My first thought was ‘grain free? what on earth is left to eat?’. Eating grain free to me seemed like trying to go gluten free, but so much worse!

I’m back today with another instalment of seasonal muffins! This time around I went with cranberry and orange because it’s one of my favorite combos throughout the holidays and winter months. And I mean I’m pretty crazy for cranberry orange anything from granola to sauce for turkey day.
Maybe it’s because Tyler and I hadn’t been out hiking together in over 10 months, or maybe it was the golden larches. But in whatever it was this day was magical! We choose to hike Huckleberry Lookout specifically because it’s located in the midst of larch country.
I’m having what they call ‘a minute’ with brussels sprouts right now! Although to be more specific that ‘minute’ has been going on for about a year now. Last fall when they started arriving at the supermarket, I started getting pounds and pounds of them to take home and roast.
Sometimes I have an idea for a recipe, make it, and everything works the first time like a charm. From there it’s just refining and testing. But then there’s those recipes where I kind of bomb it on the first time around.
I’ve never actually bought linen spray, the price tag has always been a little too high. There’s also the fact that most of them contain synthetic fragrances, that make both Tyler and I sneeze! Not too long ago though, a good friend bought a bottle for me, (extravagant, spoiling presents are so great).
