Returning home

Returning home

This week has been significant to me in many ways. Last week, I took my second annual mom vacation. Even during this pandemic, I was able to sneak away for a week with some girl friends and just relax. Don’t get me wrong, I take vacations with my family every year, too, but this is different. Even when I’m at the beach or in a cabin, I still have take care of my family. “Mom” mode never turns off. Kids…

The New Norm

The New Norm

How ya been? Week two of quarantine/homeschooling/trapped at home has finally finished, and tomorrow begins round three of who knows how many. So, let me ask that again, and be honest with me. How ya been? 🙂 Are you like me? The first week was “Hey… I got this… this ain’t bad. I get to spend some quality time with the kiddos, my man since he’s not traveling for work, and finally work on those home projects we’ve been neglecting…

Hard Decisions

Hard Decisions

How is your stash of toilet paper? Do you have enough can goods to last you for awhile? How will you spend the next two weeks at home, with the kids, while school has been shut down? I’m sure these are all questions you’ve asked yourself the past couple of weeks as the world is trying to respond to the spread of COVID-19. I had to fight the crowds to get my weekly supply of salad, milk, and bread, and…

Selling Me

Selling Me

Time is just zooming by! March is already here, we’re losing an hour sleep tonight with day light savings time, and I’ve been a business owner for two whole months now. I have learned so much, faced and conquered various challenges, and slowly we are seeing the fruit of our labor. One of my personal goals during the transition from instructor to owner was to learn everyone’s name. I have talked to all the clients in some way or another,…

Appreciation

Appreciation

This past week was probably one of the hardest weeks I’ve endured in a very long time. The closest I think I have felt this tired was after giving birth to my oldest child. With him, I was a week overdue and was induced. Almost a day later with very little sleep and no food, I was rushed into surgery for an emergency cesarean. Even after the surgery, I couldn’t rest as I was constantly being monitored, visited, and feeding…

Labor of Love

Labor of Love

This has been my third attempt to writing a post this month. The struggle is real. I hadn’t felt the inspiration to write. I felt there was a need to update but there wasn’t enough sustenance to create a worthy post to read. Perhaps I’m too picky, but I hate writing for the sake of writing. There needs to be a purpose! Yesterday, Valentine’s Day, is one of my least favorite holidays. I just find it silly to go all…

Trusting

Trusting

I like to think that I am not shy about my faith, especially if you consistently read my blog. I hope that my character reflects my beliefs, and though I am nowhere from being perfect, I want my life to be a reflection of working towards pleasing and honoring my God. If you ever want to know more about my beliefs, please don’t ever hesitate to reach out to me. 🙂 To give you some history, I grew up in…

For the love of it

For the love of it

What day is it? Can you believe it? January is almost over! Do you know what that means? I’ve been an owner for almost a month now. What?!?! How can it be so? But it is, but it is. I have been bombarded with questions from dear friends, all essentially asking the same thing: “How’s it going? What’s it like being an owner?” The American dream is alive and well in Tyrone, GA. Two little ladies have taken over Jazzercise…

I have spoken.

I have spoken.

For a Christmas gift, we received a year subscription to Disney+ from my in-laws. This was mainly for my Star Wars lovin’ son. He has seen every movie, every cartoon show, and has read all the graphic novels based on SW. His passion and knowledge blows my mind and continues to amaze me. So does Baby Yoda. If you haven’t seen The Mandalorian on Disney+, you’re definitely missing out. The first season has only 8 episodes, and Baby Yoda appears…

Let the countdown begin!

Let the countdown begin!

For the past couple of years, I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of “stuff” that comes with Christmas: i.e. toys, unneeded gifts, an overabundance of things. I’ll admit, I’m an Amazonaholic. If I want something, it’s just a click and a two day shipment away. The desire for “things” is never that big during Christmas time, and it takes away from the main reason for the season. So for the kids, we’ve been focusing on memberships to the zoo,…
