Starting the School Year Right

After spending some time this morning binge watching Netflix, I chose to continue to avoid my grad school reading by jotting down some ideas for this upcoming school year.

Setting an Intention in Your Marriage

My husband and I are coming up on one year of marriage. It's crazy to stop and think about all that has happened this past year, but if I can take one reflection from it, it would be this: I am so thankful to have him as my partner in life.

I frequently do … Continue reading Find Your Calm

Although it's a bit cloudy, the sun is peaking through the window and spring … Continue reading Good Things Happen Every Day
