Life has been a whirrrrlllllwind over here. I haven’t had much time for structure. I feel like this is the first October that will be a blur for me. It feels like something is going on every week… and really, that is how it is! One week into married life, and I feel like we still have so much to do… well… me. Between name changing and then getting ready for our honeymoon, it’s definitely been hectic over here!!
Instead of a diary of my day, I have just been taking photos of my food and would like to compile it all here. This is basically what I have been eating for the past few weeks. Lots of different meals, foods… you know. Variety is key to not getting bored, amiright? ;)
THERE IS A TON AFTER THE BREAK – just a warning. I love taking pictures of my food, so… you know. I think I may like this way of doing things better, too. I may just do a once a month compilation of everything I’ve eaten. I hope it gives you some insight into my eating habits, as well as ideas for your own diet!
