    How Did You Meet Your Significant Other?

    Rob and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary yesterday. It was a low key celebration as we are coming off of our 14 day vacation to Chile a few days ago. Last year for our 20th, he surprised me with a trip to Shanghai, China. I thought we were going to Canada! 😂 He comes up with GREAT surprises and gifts for special occasions. We went to dinner at a local Italian restaurant in our neighborhood and brought a nice bottle of wine from home with us to celebrate. We ate on the restaurant’s outdoor patio and enjoyed a warm night and gorgeous sunset and one another’s company. We had…

    Podcasts I Listen To.

    I am a total podcast junkie. I have listened to SO many episodes of a wide variety while driving, on vacation, cleaning the house or doing a creative project. I love to learn something new, be given a different perspective on something or just listen to a story. There are too many for me to list here but I want to share some of my favorites. There is a wide range: business, self help, mental health, storytelling. Seriously, this is just a fraction of my list. But these are the ones I’m listening to the most right now. Enjoy! Side Hustle School/ Chris Guillebeau started this podcast back on January…

    What do you LOVE about YOURSELF?

    Love. Love for your glorious, beautiful and worthy self. That’s what we’re going to talk about today. Growing up, I wasn’t taught about self love. It wasn’t really an idea in our household. I realize that my parents did the best that they could with what they had, but as an adult raising my own children now, I feel as though this important piece was definitely missing. And it’s something that I fiercely believe in and am determined to teach my children. To love themselves. That they don’t have to be perform to be loved. That they can make a mistake and still be loved. That I believe in them…

    Snow Days.

    That photo up there is of our backyard. Snow snow snow.  We’ve been hit pretty hard the last 4 days with a snowstorm. It’s been crazy. We were supposed to get our fence repaired from the last wind storm from a couple of weeks ago, so that’s why there are missing slots. I hope once we are out from under all of this snow, we can get the backyard in good shape. Yes, I’m ready for warm weather after all of this. I’ve not been out of my house since last Friday. Well, I did go for a walk on Sunday afernoon but otherwise, very much house bound. Lots of…

    Currently.

    Oh, hey! It’s been a chorus of crickets over here as I’ve just been doing life and getting my soul back on the mend. Life is beautiful but also can be a shit show at times and as much as I try to be positive and look for the good, I couldn’t keep it up and needed to step away to work on some life stuff and take care of some things. And I can say, right now, I feel good. I feel really good about where I’m headed and I’m in a good place. I am looking forward to growing and loving and living and finding the joy that…
