It’s been a while, eh? :) Anything wild or crazy happen with y’all lately? Some wild stuff happened here – but unfortunately not all in the “fun” department, haha… I just got back from an ER visit this weekend where I found out I have pneumonia (oops), making it the 2nd time at the hospital this month as we were just there when my son […]

Hey guys! So in an effort to be more “present” for our upcoming move and really soak everything in, I’ll be taking a break from blogging for the month of July (and the first week of August while we family vacay) to help slow down life more and enjoy the upcoming changes in our life :) I’ve caught myself trying to rush through everything here […]

Morning! Got a notification that it was my anniversary on a couple things this week (picking up my Lexus from Carmax (3 years), switching to Republic Wireless (5 years!)), and thought it might be helpful to see how we feel about it years later now :) Do I wish I could go back on any of them?! Did any of them completely change my life??! […]

Found this old draft in my inbox, and thought it was worth polishing up to better contrast Friday’s “everything is great for people!” post ;) We all have our wins, but we also have many fails along the way too – and it can 100% suck!! Especially when people go out of their way to tell you so! Haha… Here’s the post just briefly edited […]
