Coming clean

Over the past months, I’ve realized how far I’ve come. Unfortunately and frighteningly, I’ve understood how much of a path I’ve still got ahead of me.Some of you might remember; I’ve never kept it a secret. But I haven’t spoken much about it either.“Spill the beans now, Niki,” you might think. Writing this is tough….

”Vegans are missionaries” – a statement

Pumpkin spiced oats with caramelized cranberries

Autumn… A time for cuddling up in bed with cozy socks, a cup of tea and a great book.

To me there’s…
