Pinterest To Plate: No Bake Energy Bites on TheDailyMonarch.com

Gosh. It feels amazing to actually sit down and write.  I apologize for my absence, I’ve missed you all so much!  Work has been insane on top of preparing for a third move.  The first move involved roaches, which lead to a second move in under 24 hours.  And we have finally found our perfect place.  On top of that craziness, there’s been 30th birthdays and other events.  So you can imagine, the last thing I wanted to do was pick up my laptop.  But I’m finally back and super excited for what’s to come in all areas of my life right now, and even more excited to decorate our new fancy place and document it all right here. read more
