Photo Fun Day Friday

Share This

Well, I am sure you’ve noticed, but it’s been a while since I’ve shared photos as part of my Photo Fun Day Friday series. It wasn’t a conscious choice, but life has just been a bit crazy and more-so just generally out of sorts. After the holidays ended, we were immediately in full-on moving mode and we have just been going non-stop ever since. Here is a just a quick abbreviated visual synopsis of the last month or so. Things are going well over here, we fly out in less than 2 weeks to California to find a place to live in Long Beach, then we fly back to Buffalo pack our car up, grab the dog and hit the road to drive across the good ‘ol US of A! We cannot wait.

Photo Fun Day Friday

Our gift to my parent’s this year. A family photo session! We had the shoot this past weekend and it was so much fun! Can’t wait to share some of the photos. Such a fun thing to do before we leave town and I will be so happy to have some really nice photos of my family throughout our new home.

One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year. A ganesha statue from my Mom and Dad. Can’t wait to find a place for it in our new home.

Me and my baby. Holding her tighter than ever after she was released from the emergency vet after ingesting xylitol.

At the start of the moving and packing. Surrounded by boxes! (Oh and of course, a nice tall glass of wine)

The moving truck all packed up. Sealed it with the kiss of a handstand! Our stuff is all in storage in California waiting for us.

Gonna miss my old kitchen SO much. We designed it ourselves to be exactly what we needed.

Our poor Seri has had a rough month. She broke a nail at the park last week and it was broken so high up they had to sedate her, remove it and wrap it up. Poor thing. She is all better now, thankfully.

My kind of dinner. Sauteed kale, red kuri squash, white beans, onions, garlic, sliced almonds, dried cranberries and avocado. It was INCREDIBLE.

It has been WAY too cold to go to the park lately, poor Seri is sad.

    Hi Beth,
    My husband and I are huge fans. We love your recipes and website. Keep up the great work!Can you share that recipe for the sauteed kale, squash and avocado? It looks and sounds amazing! Thanks!

      Hey Darcy, thanks so much for your nice compliments and for reading! I will have to make the kale dish again and see if I can get it close to the original. I kinda made it up with what I had on hand. It was so delicious and so easy! I need to eat like that more often, it was perfect. Thanks.

  2. I’m bummed that you’re leaving before I move to Buffalo. I’ve been following your blog for a while and was hoping to meet you in person. But of course I wasn’t expecting you to wait for me! Haha! And your adventure will be so much fun. Looking forward to reading about how you guys like living in California. 🙂

    (P.S. I’ve previous commented under my other blog – http://naturallyminimalist.com)

    Hi Beth,
    I’ve just discovered your site and am hooked. I’ve already tried a few recipes and your Thanksgiving recipe series was awesome. I made a few dishes that are keepers from that series. Happy to hear you’re moving out to Long Beach, CA. I live in “the LBC” and it is a great city – lots of parks, farmer’s markets, yoga in the park, etc. Feel free to email if you have any questions or need any recommendations.

    Hey Beth.

    Great pics this week. Just wanted to let yo know I made your grain free mini banana bread loaves last night. except I don’t have a baby loaf pan; I used my big muffin tin instead. Perfect size batch for 6 oversize muffins. They turned out AMAZING. Great job! Thank you 🙂

    Hope everything is going well with your house transition.

    poor poochie 🙁 that has happened to my dog before – and they gave HIM a bright pink cast! lol

  6. Good luck on your move! i love the handstand. And that sauteed kale bean salad looks perfect and simple. I’m going to find a way to make that happen in my kitchen soon.
