I had a doctor’s appointment this week for an annual exam. It was with a new doctor who I hadn’t met before. Before I met with the doctor, I went through all the standard medical information with a nurse. She made notes in my file and indicated that she would relay the information to the…

I love clothes. I have ever since I can remember. When I was about 5 or 6, I remember standing at the top of the stairs trying on outfits for my brother. I’ve always enjoyed the way clothes make me feel. They spark joy in me! Which brings me to what I want to share…

I became an Aunt yesterday. I’m currently a step aunt to 4 kiddos (two of which live in Denver and I get to see regularly), but now I’m a biological aunt too! My brother had a daughter.

My husband and I are getting a second vehicle. It feels like a pretty big deal. We’ve shared one vehicle for the past 20 months. It was a decision we made to downsize. What could we cut out of our lives? What was unnecessary? Yes… what could we do without? After having grown accustomed to…

You know those days when your best laid plans go out the window? Yeah… today was one of those days. These days, it seems like most days are that way. At the end of each day, I usually create a rough plan (i.e. list) for the following day of the tasks that need to be…
