YOU GUYS. Magic happened overnight last Saturday night! It went from what felt like a never-ending summer to fall in like 8 hours. As much as I love warm summer days when the pool is closed there is no longer a reason for temps above 75 degrees, am I right?! I've been so ready to wear leggings, sweaters, boots and sweatshirts and finally mother nature is allowing me to enjoy the beauty of fall!

GUYS. These little nuggets of goodness are my new favorite appetizer! Let's be honest, anything wrapped in bacon is delicious, but these, these are SO good. I'm still a huge fan of my bacon wrapped jalapeƱos recipe but there's something really delicious about sweet and salty together and the date-bacon combination has me totally in love.

The location was the perfect setting, a state park just outside of Nashville that has a beautiful lodge with stonework set the stage.  The ceremony was held in the front of the lodge and the bride and groom stood under an arbor that her father made! We draped the arbor in coculus garland.

Naturopathic Medicine In Kansas City

Ok friends, what do you think about naturopathic medicine? If you had asked me that question about a year ago I would have said that it sounds like hippie medicine that probably doesn't work. Then our family had a pretty amazing experience where my step-father was seriously ill and no one could help him, until he went to see a naturopathic doctor in Seattle. He was super sick with a rare kidney disease that had already taken one of his kidney’s and his ND was the only one that would eventually help him.
