My name is Alaina, and I am so glad you stopped by. These pages contain recipes I have created, stories of my life, and experiences shared with the hope that they bring you some value. May my learnings bring you some hope, understanding, or at the very least, a bit of laughter to your day. Enjoy!

I am committing to self-compassion, over self-care.

The notion of self-care is important, however, trying to do all the things in a normal day, as well as doing all-the-things we see social media throwing at us as the “right way” to be healthy and take care of ourselves is literally madness. We need more space in our lives to be kind to ourselves, let go of all the crazy-making “should’s” and live a little more peacefully in each day.

Join me on a journey toward mindful living.
