Best Life: Week 2

Well, we are now 2 full weeks into the new year. Which means I am 2 full weeks into being on the wagon. What does it mean to be on the wagon?  No beer, low-carbs, not-smoking and working out every day.  Also, things that help with my mental health like writing and reading every day. […]

Dedicate: Courage

I have had a lazy day today and it has been amazing.  All 6 kids are here and they are just enjoying each other’s company and have happily taken over the downstairs.  So, the hubs and I camped out in bed.  We stayed in jammies until about 20 minutes ago and binged on Netflix. Finally […]

Long Time #thisis38

I realized yesterday that I haven’t posted in awhile. It’s not because I have nothing to say, it’s because life is going to swimmingly that I just haven’t. Since the kids got back to school, I’ve been back to work. Professional grocery shopping that it #shiptlife. I’m earning a living for my family while being […]
