Something is amiss in Denmark… or something like that! So many changes have happened in my life since I started this blog, and more are yet to come, I’m sure. But rather than bore with all those details (well, I will share the most exciting change – I got married! yay!), I invite you to […]

Black History Month: Michelle Obama

February is not only Black History Month, but it is American Heart Month. Most of you are aware that obesity and heart disease are closely linked. Well, this year I choose to celebrate someone I consider a hero making strides to eliminate childhood obesity, and ultimately reduce future rates of heart disease – Michelle Obama. […]
