Welcome Monday Morning

Welcome Monday Morning!

Hello, friends! Thank you so much for stopping by today. Hope you had the best weekend! As always Monday arrives whether or not we're ready, right?! Ready / Set / Go.... For me it begins with getting out of bed while I stumble to get into my workout clothes and do something that loosely resembles what Autumn tells me to do for the 21 Day Fix workout. I sweat, drink some water until the 30 minutes are over. Then it's off to the shower and onto the morning routine of getting out the door on time. ... Continue Reading...

Looking Back & Looking Ahead

looking back & looking ahead

I felt like this photo embodied where I am right now. As we have moved into our new {old} home and unpacked to really settle in I have found myself really reminiscing. I realized when we downsized I was probably not in my right mind. I say that because I know I have given away things that I now wish I had kept. To be honest I've scoured local thrift stores looking for my treasures. Honestly, I wish that was a lie but it's the truth. My little heart has been a bit broken over a few treasures. I ...

What’s On My Heart

heart

Hey there friends! I have tried to write a post like a zillion times but I just sit and stare at a blank screen. It's hard sometimes to write again when you take a break. The study break for the professional test inadvertently turned into a longer break from blogging, which made writing so hard for me. Eventually, I would just give up and close my computer and move onto something else. Except today. Today ideas and words and my heart all aligned to say what I've been wanting to say but couldn't ...

Welcome, friends! To those of you who are mommas, I hope your Mother's Day was filled with much love and appreciation for what you do in the lives of your children. What a privilege, calling and challenge to shape and mold a future generation. It is not a mission for the faint of heart and it never ends. The challenge can be incredibly difficult and yet one of the most rewarding blessing in this life. If I'm honest, I would say that for many years now, I have shied away from Mother's Day. On ...

My {un} Perfect Life

comparison is the thief of joy

The other day I was thinking about life. My thoughts were drawn to just how regular and mundane daily life can be for me {and probably for most people}. I don't have a fancy life nor does my life look at like a Pinterest pin. Truth be told I'm just sorta ordinary. My ordinary typically includes...an early morning workout followed by Shakeology. Off to work where I try to keep the ball rolling in terms of office supplies, lunches, copy machines, travel arrangements, paying invoices, ... Continue Reading...

But what if….

but what if

Last Friday I was reading a post on The Blended Blog by Andrea whose blog home is Living on Cloud Nine. She featured some of her favorites from the week and as I read the post and followed the links I was captivated by the post Has Blogging Gotten out of Control? by Fashion on the 4th Floor. As I read the post I found my myself agreeing with every word. I especially loved that Diane actually googled and found this definition of blogging. A blog is a frequently updated online personal journal or ... Continue Reading...
