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. I guess it’s only natural that reading has rolled into our time spent together. We started…

What Letting your Husband Take the Lead Means to Me


I was reading a blog about wives submitting to their husbands and was struck by a comment that said something to the fact of falling in line behind your husband when he takes the lead or control. I was inspired to write this post and expound on the comment that I left on their blog….

Money Managing with my Husband


In the beginning of our marriage, managing money was really difficult, to say the least. We had very different views on what was a good investment, how much to spend when and how much to save. I hadn’t lived with my parents for about four years so I had a little more experience when it…

Aside from avoiding certain foods, we are writing in journals daily, praying and getting in some personal worship time with God. This is day…

Surprise Staycation Weekend


There are moments when you’re reminded of how wonderful someone is. My husband received his yearly bonus at work and had planned on buying a Surface Pro but after a few things came up, we weren’t going to be able to purchase it along with the accessories that he wanted. He decided to try again…

Closing a Door


Sometimes you keep pushing on a project, thinking “If I just find the right element, this will work”. But after trying everything you can, lack of motivation or resources, you either go with what you have or start over. I’ve chosen the latter. I’m starting over with my entrepreneurial endeavors. I’ve worked under the name…
