Five Friday Finds

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! Are you stuffed to the brim after yesterday’s good eats? I hope your holiday was filled with happiness, joy, laughter, and love. I hope you find ways to be grateful every single day, because we are so very fortunate to live in this wonderful world. Changing topics, it’s been really fun to put together five of my faves each week. It makes me really think about what I use on a daily basis and what I recommend to you all. So, here are my 5 Friday finds this week! 1. Expensify – I use Expensify to […]

Five Friday Finds

Happy Friday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT week?! So, how was your week? Mine was slow. In the past, I’ve noticed the week before any holiday crawls by… but then the week of the actual holiday flies! Same is true this year so far. What gives? Tell me, what are your Thanksgiving plans? Are you cooking? Making pies? I hope the weekend ahead is fun, festive, and relaxing! I thought it would be fun to start sharing five of my favorite “things” on Fridays again. These can be actual products, ideas, tips, tricks, organization hacks, recipes travel adventures, and more! […]

I’m Back!

Hey, y’all! How’s it going? I’ve debated writing this post for the longest time. Is there ever a good time to “come back” to a blog? I want everything to be perfect but let’s be honest, there is no perfect, so we’re going to go with good enough. I took a little hiatus from writing around my birthday in April… and over 7 months later, here we are! Do you like the new design and layout? I finally have an actual logo and I love it. My amazingly talented friend, Caroline, designed it all for me. A lot has happened […]

March 2017 in Review

  I wrote this at the airport waiting for our flight to NASHVILLE for a fun-filled birthday weekend, but of course it took me forever to actually finish it! I always love taking this time to reflect on the past month – things have been moving at lightning speed and I can barely keep up with our One Line a Day book let alone any other thoughts, adventures, etc. March was full of friends, birthday celebrations, travel, good eats, and family. I did LOTS of baking – made my second ever layer cake – and many batches of cookies and […]

Happy 27 G!

Happy 27th Birthday, Grant! Today, you are 27. You’ve done more in your 27 years than most people accomplish in their lifetime. The past year has been a trying one – you know more than anyone how hard it’s been. It was filled with challenge, stress, tears, big and hard decisions, change, moving (twice!!), three job transfers for you, and so much more. But you know what? It was also AMAZING. We traveled, explored, deepened our relationship, made lasting friendships, became 100% debt free, and conquered every single thing life threw our way. We have much to be proud of! […]

Bone Marrow Donation Update 2

It’s official – I’m cleared to donate bone marrow. Less than two months to go! I’ve connected with so many of you asking about the process, what it’s like, and how you can help. So, I’ll continue documenting my journey and hope it inspires you to make a difference today 🙂 I spent the majority of today at the cancer center of the hospital for testing, x-rays, bloodwork, and an EKG. I also met with the doctor who will be performing the procedure along with a bunch of the support staff members. Was it scary? No. I was in a […]
