Stranded in Paradise + 5 Go to Gluten Free Eats North Shore Kauai

Gluten-Free Me / Healthy Living / Travel / Personal / Favorites / Miscellaneous / Married Life

Spending a weekend stranded in paradise with my husband was PURE Bliss!!! We weren’t really stranded, but we had very limited access to anywhere but our family home in Haena, on the North Shore of Kauai. Really quick explanation, due to some devastating rainfall in April 2018 the road to get to our Haena home is closed, except at specific times a day and for residents only, so once residents enter into their community, they hunker down. (Besides the daily convoy to work/school, but if you can avoid it, you do!) We were only dropping in for a long weekend, so the plan was to hunker down, and not leave our sweet home… except for one date night in town, because we do have a few favorites that we just can’t skip when we're there. (I’m sharing my favorite spots to find some gluten free bites down below, scroll down if that's what you're here for!) So we lived the…

Tenley’s Wedding Planning Series: Sonoma Bachelorette Weekend Part 2

Uncategorized

Where to begin when planning your Bachelorette Weekend?! I'm going to be honest with you, getting started with planning my Bachelorette Weekend was probably one of the biggest stressors for me and my girls. One, because I didn't give us very much time to plan...getting engaged in January and planning a wedding for the end of April didn't give us many weeks to plan, and not a whole lot of weekends to choose from to get away. And the second reason Bachelorette weekend planning was such a stressor was the question "where can we go?".  And third, once we picked Sonoma, there were sooooo many options of where to stay, what to do, how we'd get there, etc. So that's why I've decided to share this blog post with you! I needed something so straight to the point to help us navigate and plan the weekend, I hope this can be that for you. Wether or not you're just…

{Photos by Madison Lauren Photography} Oh what an adventure me and 7 of of my best girlfriends had for my Bachelorette weekend. If you follow my Instagram stories, you saw that we experienced some interesting hurdles to getting to our destination for the Bachelorette weekend. (If you don't follow my Instagram stories, you can still watch the journey on my Instagram, in the highlights titled, "Bachelorette".) The journey had some twists and turns, and it made for a memorable start to the weekend. And I'm so excited to share more about our travels and festivities, but first, I wanted to share something from my heart. God has been so good to me in leading me along some interesting paths that have led me to every single one of these friendships that I have. We have each shared seasons of highs and lows, tears, laughter, joy. There have been multiple prayers shared in person, over coffee, over the phone,…

Thanksgiving for Two – “Dates-giving!”

Thanksgiving for Two.

It's the time of the year that we reflect on all that we're thankful for, and my heart is so full. This time of year deserves a little time to slow down, reflect and share. And the other night, my dreamy guy and I created a mini Thanksgiving for just the two of us. {Menu included below} It was a moment to pause and share our thanks with one another, and enjoy a festive meal… talk about pre-gaming! Haha. I'm already full heading into tomorrow. I thought I'd share a few items from our menu from the other night and also share a few things I'm thankful for, because my heart is truly overflowing with gladness. This Guy. My Love, My Best Pal. Ohh man. Now I'm all teary eyed trying to find words to share my thankfulness for this sweet answer to prayer in my life. haha. I'm such a sap. For those of you …

Iceland: Blue Lagoon

Into the Blue... ten-photos-ice-london-101 {Photo by Taylor Leopold} The Blue Lagoon. The MUST stop in Iceland. When planning our trip to Iceland I KNEW that somehow we would need to fit in a stop to this geothermal spa. We considered making the stop at the Blue Lagoon as soon as we got off our flights to Iceland, as the airport is near, and it would be a nice way to begin a trip— but a friend that had been before had suggested maybe finishing our time in Iceland with our stop at this famous spa and Icelandic Landmark. So that's exactly what we did, it was perfect! ten_bluelagoon_entrance After several days of driving and seeing the breathtaking sites of this magical country, Taylor and I enjoyed a relaxing night at The Blue Lagoon before our next flights and adventures. We soaked in the hot spa water, floated around sipping on wine, enjoyed an unbelievable dinner (completely gluten free for me), covered…

Dreamy London Days… and a Dream come true for me. Gluten Free Afternoon Tea! ten_teaviews

I had always dreamt of exploring the posh and historic streets of London. And when I say Always, I mean that this was something that I had wanted to do since the day I learned about Princess Diana and the two young princes that I was sure were awaiting my arrival to London just as much as I was excited to get there! 😉 (I had a vivid imagination growing up… let's be honest, it's still pretty active.) When my sweet boyfriend and I began planning our trip to Iceland we realized London would be our gateway stop to our travels that would follow our Iceland trip. This brought a huge smile to my face, realizing I was finally going to get to explore a city that I had forever been fascinated by. And what made this even better is when we…

My Day to Night Pamper Tricks

My Workouts

My lifestyle is all about living clean. My Sweet & Free Lifestyle isn't just about feeling your best on the inside, but feeling clean on the outside is just as important to me. I'm much happier if I can feel my best on the daily. My days are very full, but not with just one thing. On any given day you'll find me running, then off to the store, and then off to see clients, then to barre class, and often a night out with my girls or a special date night with my "mega babe" boyfriend. Which naturally can leave me feeling… well, less than fresh. (I'm talking sticky, hair frizzy, and stinky too!) I thought it would be fun to share with you my Day To Night Pamper Tricks!
