What Are You Waiting For?

This is it! This is your life. What are you waiting for? Who are you waiting to become? What needs to happen in order for you to get off the bench and start playing in the game? Today has purpose. Today a million different things will happen. When you’re involved with your heart and eyes […]

Social Media in the New Year

Every January 1st I go through my Facebook friends. I “unfriend” anyone who isn’t in my real life, I haven’t engaged in real conversation with or hasn’t added something positive to my life. Family is trickier and for those people, I unfollow. Life is too short to get bogged down on all the negative. Facebook […]

Month of Thanks Day 2

Today I’m going to share my thankfulness for essential oils. Yes, yes… in this family we use essential oils all day long. As a natural room deodorizer, in lieu of fabric sheets, drops to flavor our water and for relieve when our body is giving us problems. Last Friday Noah was in the hospital with […]

Finally Happy #thisis38

For years I worked and worked. For years I cried on the inside mostly, on the outside some. I thought if I just did more of X added some of Z and less of Y, that I would be better in no time. I spent years of therapy, years of journaling (blogging), reading self care […]

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 […]

Back To School #Thisis38

Today is the first day of school for our youngest 3 children.  Which means summer has come to an end and was wrapped up in a pretty little bow yesterday. My dream, my summer with the kids was everything that I ever could have hoped for!  I have high hopes that the pieces of work […]

Our Final Days of Summer #Thisis38

We have just a a few days left of summer and we are certainly making the most of it. Yesterday we used our last 2 Groupons.  We spent an hour at Airtime where the kids bounced around, played dodge ball and basketball.  Then we moved onto Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum.  An arcade with both old […]

Shipt Shopper #Thisis38

  I know that I have brought it up before, but for those who don’t know I left my 9-5 job back in June.  This was a decision that had been on my heart since the beginning of the year.  After much discussion and financial discipline, my husband and I decided that I could leave […]

Gluten Free #Thisis38

I lost about 10 pounds over the last 2 months. Able to put my engagement ring and wedding band on for the first time in a year and a half. Well… last weekend I gained back about 7. All that was different was the beer that I drank. We had lots of celebrations and I […]
