Weekend in Madrid

A few highlights from our 3-day weekend in Madrid, including details on where we stayed, what we did, and what we ate.

10-Minute Chia Seed Jam

This 10-Minute Chia Seed Jam recipe is my fave!!  It’s super quick and easy to make, thickened with chia (instead of tons of extra sugar), totally delicious, and made with real ingredients you can feel great about.

Our 2017 Christmas “Card” (VIDEO)

Friends!  In lieu of sending out official holiday cards this year, because — let’s face it, both of us are total procrastinators, plus mailboxes and inboxes of all kinds have never been our forte — we thought we’d sing you all a little Christmas song instead.  ♡ From our home to yours, we wish...
