Real Talk: over the past week or so I've found myself feeling pretty bummed out a fair few times. * I know these are privileged "problems" at their finest - even calling them "problems" is laughable to many. I'm incredibly grateful for all the UNBELIEVABLE blessings in my life, but I also know that acknowledging not-so-great feelings is healthier than pretending they don't exist. * I miss all my humans.

Major Meal Prep Monday going on at Casa Erasmus today! 😁😁😁 * Cooking is motivation enough for me because I really enjoy it, but if it's not really your thing here are a few other reasons that'll inspire you to set aside a few hours to Meal Prep: * 1.
