My name is Breeanna, I am from Chicago, and I have been really into fitness and health for the past few years. I use this space to share recipes, photos, and lifestyle content.

Hello, everyone. I hope your holiday season is going well. Things have been crazy over here, but I just finished submitting final grades for the fall semester, so I will have a little room to breathe over the next couple weeks. Though this holiday season is much different than it usually is, there is a … Continue reading Happy Holidays
It is a beyond gorgeous day, totally unexpected for November. It's nearing 70 degrees and I have my windows open. My plants are on the window ledges, soaking up the sun, I have a good fall candle going, and I can feel the gentle breeze trickle in. Days like this make me feel so grateful. … Continue reading Halloween Recap

Hello, everyone! It has been way too long since I've written. Things have been kind of crazy, as I'm sure they are for most people lately.

Veggie-packed Autumn Soup
One of my favorite ways to get veggies in is through soup, chili, and casserole, because you can throw a ton of things in there.

Hi, everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable long weekend. Julian and I decided to go on a little adventure and drove about an hour away to the Goose Lake Prairie State Natural Area. Near there is another prairie where you can see bison, but it was closed. I started my Labor Day morning … Continue reading Labor Day In a Prairie
