She’s not a ‘Tomboy’, She’s Strong!


Let’s start encouraging our girls by retiring the word ‘tomboy’ from now on. There are awesome words that truly reflect our talents and strengths. Strength is not a trait reserved for men and boys.

Marriage, Wine and a Good Book


Brandon and I have both been reading a lot more lately. I’ve personally devoured three books in the last two weeks and am working on book number four as I learn more about SEO, networking online, productivity and blogging.

Five Years After I Do


Brandon and I have seen our share of great times and hard times. One thing that I’m most grateful for is that we’ve been able to maintain our friendship and grow closer over time. A lot happens in the first five years of marriage. You move in together, argue a lot about money, learn about…
