I went through some very interesting circumstances this year; some that I've never been through before, some even that I have barely been ok enough to talk about. I wasn't always being 100% for the important people in my life. I wasn't present for a lot of people I love this year. I wasn't present … Continue reading A letter to 2019.
When you have children, you never know what to cherish; what moments to etch into your memory, what silly things to photograph or put on video, or what things you should never take for granted.

After reading my daily Shine text this morning, it inspired me to make this post because there was an awesome article (that you can check out here) that accompanied it about how “reverse” bucket lists can be just as cool as creating a regular bucket list! While we all get caught up in the excitement … Continue reading The Reverse Bucket List
For the month of October, roughly one month before my birthday, I took on a task of creating affirmations everyday that I use to motivate and keep myself positive. So far, I’ve made 24 affirmations (2 per morning) and it feels really good. I have an app that I use to take words from, and … Continue reading My October Affirmation List
