We were absolutely thrilled to chat with Natalie and Holly, the ladies behind the widely loved food blog; The Modern Proper. While walking a trail in the Pacific Northwest, these two friends dreamed up an idea to start a food blog that would reinvent the idea of hospitality for the modern homemaker. Their recipes are inspired by local, seasonal ingredients, made from scratch, and either created by themselves or adapted from recipes that have inspired them. Their food is gorgeous, approachable, and all the things we want to eat. With their shared love for food, creating, and hosting—they inspire the seasoned cook and novice alike. They inspire us to rediscover hospitality by opening up our homes and tables to gather, cook, and share life with one another.
In this episode we discuss the genesis of their blog, how and why hospitality is the cornerstone of their work, plus how they balance life and work while raising their families. We discuss intermittent fasting, the four pivotal moments in their career thus far, and what they envision for their future. We absolutely loved our chat with Holly and Natalie, listen in to hear their story.

Dr. C Vitamins are Pharmaceutical Grade & Medically Endorsed. All vitamins are not created equal, in fact did you know there is no FDA oversight for supplements? Unlike over the counter vitamins, Dr. C Vitamins are manufactured without commonly found synthetic ingredients, I mean honestly, who wants synthetics going into our bodies? They are also non-GMO and gluten free. Their standards are so high the vitamins are actually manufactured just like a prescription drug would be in an FDA registered facility. Most vitamins do not subject themselves to this level of oversight. Their supplements are made with the purest ingredients and tested for potency and purity.
When you purchase Dr. C Vitamins, your mind can rest at ease that you’ve chosen the best. I personally take their D3/K2 combo to support bone health, memory, mood and immune support and their Collagen/Biotin that supports strong hair, nails and skin and on nights when I have a hard time unwinding I take their Melatonin/B6 combo which helps me gently fall asleep naturally.
