You are not your job

I co-own a mac and cheese restaurant. Sounds awesome, right? For the most part, it is. This was my dream. Opening the doors to my very own restaurant. Greeting customers, cooking great food, providing jobs, designing a space, a menu, a community meeting spot. This was it. This was what I wanted my life to […]

So I’m new at this

Hi everyone! It’s great to see you again! Remember me? I used to write a food blog called Local Lemons (which was hacked, stolen, ripped-off. But whatever, that’s a different story). It’s been a while. About six years actually. Six years since I’ve written a blog post. A lot has happened. A LOT has happened. […]

What to do when you don’t sleep

Sleep used to come easy. I’d fall asleep, stay asleep, almost anywhere, for as long as I wanted. And then I had kids. I’ll write more another time about my good friend Insomnia (and our long, drawn-out break up), but for now, can we talk about how to face the day when you don’t get enough […]

Another throwback to my local lemon days. This was written in 2010. Look out for future recipes, which will be more simple, probably healthier, and  definitely take less time to prepare. Let’s talk for a minute about guilty pleasures. I say this because potato pancakes are one of mine. When early morning hours make it […]

A throwback recipe from my Local Lemons days (written in 2010). I had no idea how much my life would change in 6 years. One thing stayed the same… I still feel blessed, and I still am so thankful for everything I have in my life. Enjoy! You know, I feel blessed. I’m not particularly […]
don’t skip a beat

I'm allison. I made some great things happen in my life. And, some not so great. But I believe in finding your path, and running fast to catch your dreams. Because you don't get anywhere standing still.

Run Along

  • Hope no one on the campground wanted to sleep past 7 today! @autocamp #glamping #airstream #guerneville #outdoorkids #redwoods
  • When it's 105 degrees outside, you drink beer and splash in a fountain #guerneville @hopmonktavern #heatwave #russianriver
  • Autocamp! It's like camping, but with air conditioning, showers and beds. @autocamp 
So it's not at all like camping. #autocamp #airstream #guerneville #glamping
  • I run because it clears my head. I run because it helps me feel good about myself, like I accomplished something big before the rest of the world even got out of bed. I have two young boys, I don't sleep well, but still, I got up at 6am to run and catch the sun rise over the hills. I can be proud of that.
  • It's 33 degrees. We're on vacation. Everyone is asleep. And I cannot wait to get up and go for a run, to catch the sunrise over the ocean. It was so worth it.

I haven't posted in a while. Other things have been holding my attention. But soon. As soon as the dust settles, I'll tell you all about it. .

  • So happy we forced ourselves, and the kiddos, off the couch to enjoy a beautiful sunset hike. .
