Tonight’s #whole30 dinner: fresh, uncured bratwurst, grilled asparagus and Bubbie’s brand sauerkraut. And you?

I love this time of year. Yes, it’s work, but oh, the rewards! #RainierCherries #preserving #MamaTCsKitchen

Friday weigh-in: down 2lbs! This is what my workout was this morning (only we added 10lbs of weight to the sled push!) I still can’t believe the progress I’ve made. #humbled #excited #ReclaimingMyHealth

I want to share my view with you today, my 40th birthday. I’m alive today because of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I’m keenly aware of His grace and mercy upon my life. I thank Him every moment I have breath and I thank Him for putting YOU in my life. From the depths of my heart, thank you(!!) for all of the birthday wishes, thoughts and prayers. It means the world to me to be thought of! All my sincerest love and devotion, Traci (tc) xoxo #overjoyed #humbled #beyondgrateful #family
