Do you know what I found on my doorstep yesterday afternoon!?
I’ll give you a huge hint:
I’ve waited eagerly for the day to come when I’d have a hardcopy of superstar blogger, Tina’s success story sitting on my bookshelf amongst the rows of recipe books and nutrition textbooks.
Isn’t it beautiful? You cant’ go wrong with the color orange ;)
Even though I read about Tina’s life daily on her blog, it was really neat to flip the pages of a published book about one of my blog buddies and biggest inspirations. I enjoyed learning details about Tina’s past, and now have a list of recipes to make from carrot cake oatmeal with wheat berries to brown sugar balsamic date pizza with caramelized onions, walnuts and feta. As Tina would say, “holy yum!”.
I have learned a lot from religiously reading Carrots ‘N’ Cake, the blog, as Tina exemplifies a balanced lifestyle. Not only has CNC made me laugh with silly pug pics, made me drool over healthified Cookie Friday recipes, and allowed me to sigh in relief from relatable posts about sugar struggles, but it has clarified what I want in life.
