For the past couple of years, I have struggled to find a planning system that I could actually stick with. I have a very type-A personality, so I like to be organized and efficient, but there is also a large part of me that likes to be creative (in a structured way, you know…haha). That is why I have had such a hard time, finding a system that works for me. That being said, I think that I have finally found one, that I will really flourish with. Today, I’m sharing my updated system, that I hope will last me all of 2019 (or at least most of it).Read More
When I reflect back on the last 365 days, I see a lot of ups and downs. I see victories and I see failures. Most importantly, I see growth. I have learned so much and I have gained so much, this past year. I have never really looked back on an entire year, like this, before. But, today I am diving right in. This is my 2018 year in review.Read More
Recently, I started sharing about our trip to Ireland (and other countries in Europe), that we went on this past June. I’ve already told you a little about our first big tour, that included Howth Harbour and Malahide Castle. Today, I’m giving you all of the details on a fun afternoon, at the Dublin Zoo!Read More
Ireland was always on my bucket list. The beauty of the landscape and the historic castles, really appealed to me. When we planned this trip, I knew I wanted to take in as much as we could, in the short time that we had. Our first tour, was a half-day North Coast trip. Last week, I shared about Howth Harbour and some delicious seafood chowder, that we enjoyed. Today’s post is all about our tour of Malahide Castle.Read More
I’m thirty years old. Ugh. I still don’t like the way that looks or sounds. However, it is what it is. I’m thirty years old and I keep finding myself in seasons of waiting. For the past 15 years, I have been constantly waiting on something. Have you ever felt like you are just bouncing from one wait to another? If so, it’s time to stop waiting and just enjoy life, right now.Read More
It’s Friday! That means it’s time for another travel post! Last week, I shared a more somber post about our last adventure, in France: Visiting the D-Day Beaches in Normandy. Today, I am moving onto Ireland! After flying from Paris to Dublin, we hit the ground running. Our first day trip, was a castle tour. Before I get to the castle, I wanted to share some about the town we stopped at for lunch: Howth Harbour.Read More
Tis the season for my gift guides! I know some of you are still chipping away at your Christmas list, so I thought I would post one more guide for you. I am a stationery addict, myself, so it was easy for me to put together a list of items, that I would love (or already own).
The great thing about stationery is that pretty much everyone has to use some form of it on a day-to-day basis. Think of all of the office supplies you use, at home and work! Pens, paper, notebooks, and calendars are in every home and office.So, on with the guide! Here are a few items, that I think would be great for the stationery addict in your life (or pretty much anyone else).
There were parts of our last trip to Europe, that weren’t as exciting or lighthearted, as others. I enjoy writing about the fun stuff! It makes me feel like I am reliving the experience. Today, I am going to share about a tour, that wasn’t necessarily “fun” and “exciting”, like Disneyland Paris or Bayeux, but it was eye-opening and it taught me lessons that are impossible to learn from history books. This post is about our last stop in France: The D-Day Beaches in Normandy.
If you are currently going through an adoption (or considering it), you may encounter many waiting periods, throughout the process. There are times when you feel like you will never get through the mountains of paperwork, background checks, and training that is required. However, you will get through it and when you do, you may start to wish you had more paperwork. Instead of feeling antsy and uncertain, while you are waiting, you can use that time to prepare for your future child. Today, I’m sharing five things that you can do during the adoption wait.
Hey Y’all! Thanksgiving is coming up and I don’t know about you, but I am pretty excited about eating some turkey and sweet potatoes! It has been a few years, since I have had a Thanksgiving off from work, so that makes this year even sweeter, for me. However, we all know that Thanksgiving isn’t about the food. The name of the holiday, says it all. It’s about giving thanks. That’s why I chose today, to talk about a few different ways that you can keep a gratitude log. Not just for Thanksgiving, but for the long haul.
