First love

Okay Readers, as it is Valentine’s day, I thought it might be appropriate for me to share a little love story… This isn’t the love story you might be expecting… yes, I am happily married to a man I’m obsessed with… but before Thomas, there was someone else. Someone many of you have likely fallen in love with, and someone …

That just ain’t me

You’ve all heard the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat!” But I think that little ditty is due for a revision. Comparison is the real killer, wouldn’t you agree? I know that comparison is a major stumbling block for me in my life, but I’ve recently come to discover that most of the things that pull me into the comparison trap …

Guest spot

I don’t know if you guys know… but I blog. Yes, it’s true. And I don’t know if you guys know, but I am helping to found one of the coolest non-profits that you’re ever going to know about if you’re a woman. No offense to the dudes- you know I love you- but this non-profit is called Impact Women …

So for one, let’s jump right on into the perspective …

We’ve been on a pretty intense travel schedule between my work and my husband’s rescue efforts (a story for another blog), and honestly I wasn’t sure exactly …

The house that God will build

So I don’t care much for material things. I don’t like to spend more than $50 on jeans and I wear hand me downs on the regular without shame. I shop at Target and on Facebook marketplace. I wear Tiffany’s only because it’s been gifted to me. I love it, don’t get me wrong, but I’d never buy it. I …

Who let the cows out?

Today was upper body day at the gym of my front porch. The last week has been upper body day if I’m being honest, because I officially have an injury. You heard it here first people, I’m an athlete who has an injury! I’ve been called a lot of things in my day, but athlete has never been one of …
