What's APP-ening? All Trails Hiking App Review!

So, during my brief (3 year) hiatus from blogging...

I have realized how important it is to stay active, and I have tried just about everything.  Some things I have loved and others

...not so much.  

But one thing I have recently gotten into is hiking and just being outside to unwind and enjoy nature away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and responsibilities.  There truly is something therapeutic about being away from cars and technology and allowing yourself the time to take it all in 
(though I must admit I'm guilty of snapping pictures on my phone of great nature shots...🌵📸).  One thing I've realized is I really am unaware of all of the natural trails and county/state/national parks that exist nearby!  I found this app, which is also a website, and it has basically solved my issue of feeling like I have to go to the same trails over and over again because I'm unfamiliar with others.  

The All Trails app, or, allows you to search nearby trails, favorite trails, and review trails.  You can also read the review of others so you don't end up on a treacherous hike when all you were looking for was a leisurely stroll...something I've done once or twice!

Check it out for yourself!  Search All Trails on the app store and get yourself some fresh air!

I'm back!

After a very long hiatus, I've decided to pick up where I left off on my blogging journey.  I started this journey six years ago at age 22, and now, at age 28, I feel like I have even more to offer as far as young women's lifestyle tips and tricks may go.  I have been so focused on my job (a sixth grade teacher) and my Master's program, that I have given up on some of my other passions.  So thank you for those of you who have continued to visit my outdated site.  I promise to keep things fresh from now on and I would love as much feedback as possible!

Thanks so much! Can't wait to keep writing.

Tomato Cucumber Salad

This is a little side salad recipe that I have been hunting for since I went to a small Mediterranean shop near my college.  It is fresh, light, healthy, and incredibly easy to make!  This pairs well with a chicken dish, and if you want to use it authentically, put it in a grilled chicken pita.  My fiance and I both loved it and paired it with tzatziki sauce (Sabra brand).  Bring this to your next barbecue and it is sure to be a hit!

Tomato Cucumber Salad

2 diced cucumbers, peeled and seeded
8 Campari tomatoes, diced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar (optional)
Feta cheese to taste
Parsley flakes to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and serve with your favorite dish or as a side salad with warm pita and tzatziki sauce.  Enjoy!
