Labor Day and Myrtle Beach


Hey Friends! I can’t believe it’s already been a week since I shared the Shrimp “Ceviche” recipe with y’all. It felt good to focus on food and not “what I’ve done lately,” but for some reason I still feel the need to catch you up on the past two weekends.

My goal for now is to do at least one post per week, but if I do a recipe post it leaves little room for a weekend update. Now I’ve got another double whammy on my hands with a lot of fun stuff to tell you about! I guess it’s not a bad thing…

Shrimp “Ceviche”

I’ll be honest — I’ve been putting off a recipe post because my photos aren’t styled as pretty as all of these fabulous food blogs out there.

Food52 is where I go for inspiration these days, but it always reminds me that I clearly need to work on my food styling.  However, when I make something to actually eat, I ain’t got time to mess around and make it look pretty.

Double Weekend Roundup

Kiawah Sunrise

Well hello, folks! It’s been almost two weeks since my last update, and I’m trying not to beat myself up about it. I kicked off my last post all content and joyous and what not {fully intending to update per usual last week}, and now I’m all off  blog balance again. Guess that’s how life works, huh?

Don’t get me wrong, the contentment and joy I described the other weekend is still present, it’s just mixed with a tad bit of anxiety {for lack of a better word} from falling behind on my posting schedule. It’s funny how my own self-imposed schedule can wad up my panties. Why I let it, I don’t know. I just feel some sort of special responsibility to share whatever I can with y’all on this space. Even though I’m not 100% convinced of it’s purpose, I have this weird sense of faith that I’ll figure it out if I just keep posting. So I hope you bare with me as I find balance and keep reading!

Also, I promise to post some new recipes soon. I know for sure that is at least part of JALO’s purpose…

For now, I’ll give you a

Double Weekend Roundup:
