Simplify Your Life

What does that mean to you? To me, it means to uncomplicate. Too many unworn clothes in your closet? Too many shoes you don’t like? Too much stress about your spaces? If this is familiar, come on a journey with me too uncomplicate your life too. I’m going to tackle these physical spaces: 1) Clothes….

Are You Planning To Fail?

We’re a few days into 2017 now… how are your resolutions holding up? The problem with resolutions and diets is that if you are not consistent, which most humans fail at, then you’ve disappointed yourself. That… is a hard battle to fight with yourself. You would have just as much luck writing your wishes down…

Confessions from the Bathroom

Confession time. I want to know what your guilty pleasures are that you use to pamper yourself. While I have a zero-tolerance policy for floaty bits in my bath, I adore adding simple, luxurious things that dissolve into my bath. This is how I melt away stress and nourish myself. It’s mine. It’s quiet. It’s the equivalent of…

The Cogs of the Operation

“Shotgun!” That’s what we hollered as kids to call the front seat. There were 4 of us, 2 boys and 2 girls. I remember many fights related to that coveted gratifying co-pilot seat next to Mom or Dad. Each one of us truly believed that we ‘deserved’ to be there. Haha! What a laugh now….

Get The Vinegar Out Of Your Mouth!

It’s a phrase my Grandmother taught me. It’s a word she used to describe both the tone in your voice and the words that come out. She hit the nail right on the head. Part of the problem of our world today all the vinegar in everyone’s mouths. The way you interact with everyone carries…

Holiday Travel with Kiddos

I’ve traditionally been quite a homebody for holidays. I’m a nervous traveler. Since I refuse for that to hold us back, I make adjustments to alleviate my anxieties. First, I spent some time packing special backpacks for the boys. These are quite possibly the best little travel packs ever. They include snacks and activities. They…

CrazyFresh Birthday

Getting older doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself. It doesn’t mean that you are fragile. You can be as healthy and as strong as you want to be. I choose to be youthful and strong. I am vibrant and alive. I choose that. I wish for you to choose to have the energy of a…

This man…

This man, you will all come to know and love. He’s my rock, the love of my life, and my truth bomb. He is a wonderfully filter-less man whom is either loved or hated, but all can agree, there is no middle ground. He tells it like it is. Seriously, I ride or die for…

Say “Yes!” to Lemonade

As a little girl, we lived pretty far out in the country. That really never deterred us from having a lemonade stand. That little lemonade stand at the end of our 1/4 mile driveway is a far cry from what we just accomplished a few weekends ago. My oldest marched into the kitchen (of course,…

My Why

For as long as I can remember, there has been a fire in my soul. Something important was coming. I never knew exactly what it was, but for some reason has always propelled me forward through life. I’ve never stayed doing something for too long. I consume skills like I’m going through a video game……
