about me

My name is Emily and I am 26 year old full time teacher and part time blogger. I and am married to an amazing man {Drew} and have been married three years. 

In September of 2012, (just over one year after getting married,) I got on my scale and saw 215.8 lbs.  I knew I had gained weight, but never expected to see that number staring back at me. I couldn't believe I had gained over 46 lbs in a year.  Unfortunately, it was real and I decided something needed to change. I made a goal of starting and maintaining a healthier lifestyle. I started blogging to document my journey.

In January of 2014, after years of suffering with terrible migraines and stomach issues, I learned of my gluten intolerance. I have been gluten free ever since. 

I am beyond honored that you are here and I hope you can gain some insight or inspiration from this blog! My only hope is to help others with gluten intolerance and healthy lifestyles along the way. Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or just to chat.
