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! […]
Happy 2017! Is it okay to make goals on January 3? It’s fine, right? I’ve never made goals for the upcoming year before. I mean, I guess I’ve thought about what I’d like to accomplish, but I’ve never really written them down anywhere. Especially not for the whole world to see. But you know what? 2017 is going to be different – the year I let myself be me without caring what other people think or comparing my goals to someone else’s. That’s just not fair and life is too short!
From my little family to yours, we wish you a happy, relaxing, and delicious Thanksgiving celebration! Thanksgiving will always be my favorite holiday – one of the many things my dad and I have in common. I love the anticipation of preparing the menu, grocery shopping, frantic last minute trips to the store, spending all day in the kitchen, and enjoying an incredible feast surrounded by those we love the most. Today and everyday, I am grateful for my amazing husband, supportive and loving family, a career I am passionate about, and the opportunity to live in this wonderful world. […]
What started off as one update to share has now turned into THREE. (!!!) I’ve written and rewritten this post so many times I’ve lost count because I’m not exactly sure how to share this all. Know that we are truly, wholeheartedly grateful for every opportunity that has come our way and believe everything happens for a reason (when combined with a TON of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and challenge). But first, here’s what’s happening! 1. I got a new job 2. Grant got a new job 3. We are moving to CHICAGO! You might be thinking WHAT? You just moved […]
Thanksgiving NEXT WEEK! It’s my favorite holiday and I am thrilled to be spending it with my little family. My parents are flying in from Phoenix on Wednesday and we’ll spend Thanksgiving Day here in Minnesota, just the 4 of us… #3musketeersplusG We usually go to Cedarburg for Thanksgiving, but we are mixing it up this year – it will be nice to have quality time together and delicious eats! Friday, we’ll head to my grandparents’ house in northern Wisconsin and spend the day with my not-so-little little cousins, aunt, uncle, and grandparents. Should be a relaxing and really fun […]
