The Routine and New Habits of My Weekdays

As we start 2021, I have been focusing A LOT on what I want this year to hold – for my life, health, happiness, sanity, and goals. Building the habits into my routine that are important to me and to my life has been a big spot of reflection and decision making.  I won’t be striving for perfection – because what even is that – and in order to really do that I am consciously putting in place reasonable goals. Accountability partners in each area of life are going to be important. And they should be in many areas of

A Reflection And Declaration for a New Beginning

The world just keeps spinning, don’t you agree?! As I sit here and type this, I find myself at the beginning of a new year. Looking back in reflection, even with the pandemic, 2020 was a BIG year. I would even say it was one for the books in my life.  As an individual I learned a lot about myself, and what I want in life. I found some hard lines I never thought to experience. Most importantly though, I found many things that were and are truly important to me.  There were leaps and bounds that were taken in

When my Husband and I bought our home, we decided to invest in several smart home items, one of which is Shark’s IQ Robot.

In order to connect everything together, we also invested in the Amazon Echo system. We found that

Balancing Life: Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Creating a balance in life isn’t always easy. As I have been reflecting on the past year and then the past 5 years too (November 26 was my husband and I’s 5th dating anniversary so it’s got me thinking), I realized how fast life truly goes. What a journey it is! Balancing life is just part of the fun. There are so many things to experience and achieve. In the 5 amazing years I’ve had with my Husband (although it feels like so much longer in all honesty), we have done so many good things. We’ve worked hard for the things

Thanksgiving Week: A Time to be Thankful

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that you all are planning the most wonderful Thanksgiving festivities. My Husband and I’s Thanksgiving will be very simple this year, making sure to contact our loved ones that we would normally spend the day with. I am thankful for the connection that we can have with today’s technology! While I know that this Thanksgiving is going to be a very different one for many, it is of great importance to remember the reason for the difference. Keeping yourself and others safe from COVID-19 is important, whether we agree with the mandates, rules, and regulations
