My story of Pregnancy Loss

It’s not something most people talk about because it’s a pretty painful subject and I think some people don’t know how to respond, but did you know that October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month? I’m going to share with you some of what I’ve gone through in the past two years with my […]

Books I Read in September

Songs I live by

Have you ever heard a song and it inspired you to live your life in a different way? I was in the gym last week and heard 2 of the 3 songs that inspire me to live my life differently… to be me. They’re songs I live by. Maybe one of them will inspire you. […]

November Review

I’m a little behind on things around here. I just realized that I didn’t even do an October Review. Is it bad that I don’t really remember much about that month besides Halloween? Looking back at my Bullet Journal I see that my milestones included my three year anniversary with Young Living, that I attended […]

September Review

September was my turn-around month. Yes, I started it off with a back injury, but I decided not to let that stop me. This morning I sat down and did a September Review in order to get ready for October. I started off the month in the ER on Labor Day because of extreme back […]

Let’s Get Personal

I admit, I’ve let blogging take a back seat. I haven’t written anything personal since February. It’s been a pretty busy summer with Travel Baseball, travel for us adults, and just life in general.

Getting in a Groove
