Letter from the blogger: Revamp

March 31, 2020

Phew, what a YEAR!

I cannot believe it has been a full year since we chatted.

But rest assured, I have thought about you often and missed you sorely, my dear blog.

I’m reviving G&J in a world of social distancing, working from home and a lot of screentime. But also during a time when it’s more important than ever to focus on health and wellness.

So you can look forward to a sh*tload of new content and tips that I’ve collected over the past year… and over the past two weeks while settling into this new normal.

Happy you’re here and we’re reunited. ?

So for the love of this blog (and tbh because I just wanted to try it) I went dairy-free for a week. I am so torn about how I felt about it. On one hand, I loved it. I felt lighter, ended up eating…
