In the last 8 or so years, the talk of organic foods has seen a sharp increase in popular culture. Since its initial emergence into pop culture, talk of organic vs. non-organic foods has died down, but that doesn’t mean understanding the difference doesn’t matter. As I’ve taken control of buying my own groceries and heavily focusing my diet on fresh foods, I have become more curious about what ‘eating organic’ actually means. Today, I’m sharing what I’ve learned about when to buy organic produce and when it’s not so important.

When I was in middle school, I proudly read through the young adult section in my local library. Since then, my interest in reading hasn’t been nearly as persistent. As I was finishing out my college career a few months ago, I finally started picking up books to read for pleasure and I’m so glad I did.

Today, I’m going to be sharing with you how I’ve been able to save money while reading new books and share some of my recommendations.
Welcome back to another installment of “Let’s see how much progress Kristine has made on this list of goals she wrote two years ago.” Yes, ladies and gents I’m talking about the 101 in 1001. If you’re not familiar with this list, it’s a list of 101 goals you want to complete in 1001 days. Sounds good, right? At the end of the post, I share a little bit of why I’ve been struggling. Without further ado, here’s my progress.
In reading the title of the this post, perhaps you are wondering why I’d bother writing about a topic that may seem obvious to some: the weight and meaning that words carry. It seems like every day we are hearing of more instances that someone’s behavior and/or actions created a feeling of chaos. My goal for this post is to show you how words can also have the opposite effect. I truly believe that for as much as words can hurt and tear someone down, they serve a much better purpose: to teach, soothe and heal. I want to show you how to be intentional with your words.
