"Write something that someone told you about yourself that you never forgot."

I must admit when Noelle came to me and asked if I would help blog post a few days of the week my anxiety skyrocketed. There is plenty of stuff going on in my head and I can always seem to find something to talk about. My kids say that I will carry on lengthy ...

Being Grateful Even When You Don’t Feel It

Being grateful on those days and periods of your life where everything is just a perceived disaster can prove to be beyond difficult.

Dressing For Work On A Budget

That necessary word...Budget. My husband and I own a small design and advertising firm and are on a tight budget in all aspects of our life. We budget EVERYTHING. Birthdays, Holidays, Groceries, School supplies, utilities, and the list goes on. We live paycheck to paycheck and very rarely do anything on a whim and especially not before consulting "The Budget". Partially because we have to and partially because we have both experienced financial troubles in ...

The Greatest Loves Of My Life

I have 3 children who are the greatest loves of my life.  Honestly, I didn't know I was capable of making something so perfect x 3.

I am far from perfect and have made so many mistakes.I try ...

Be sure to insert 9+ hours of work and ...
