Thankful & Grateful 2017

The next few days are about to be quite hectic as I am the wonderful host for this years Thanksgiving dinner!

Life Sneaks Up

I hear all the time that life is all about "balance." I seem to have let that slip away the last month.

Between a crazy bachelorette weekend up-north (worth the calories in this instance), and… Continue reading Life Sneaks Up

There is too much pressure early in adulthood to figure out what you want to… Continue reading Thursday Thoughts

Your Life Is Your Own!

This morning I came across this quote and it immediately resonated with me: I have touched on this slightly before, but I think it is extremely important to reiterate. I myself have struggled with comparing my life to others. At almost 25, there… Continue reading Your Life Is Your Own!

Beginning Again

A few years ago when I stopped attending college, I was a nervous, overwhelmed, 21 year old girl. I was unsure of where I saw my studies going and I felt I needed to take a semester off to reflect and decide what direction I was headed next. Well, that semester off turned into 3… Continue reading Beginning Again
