Helping People Through Petsitting

Sometimes, you get an opportunity to really be there for people. Sometimes, in the midst of a sad moment, you can provide comfort. Sometimes, I live for those moments. I'm a petsitter. I'm the one that steps in when the owners can not. That's usually because they are going to go somewhere fun. But, sometimes, … Continue reading Helping People Through Petsitting

Love And Relationships:What We Wish We Knew

What is love? Why do some have it and some can't seem to figure it out? Man, I don't know. But, in honor of Valentine's Day, I decided to do a round-up post about love and relationships! I don't know any love "experts" to ask but I do know a lot of people who have … Continue reading Love And Relationships:What We Wish We Knew

Riding Horses With My Son

So, I decided to drag William to my horse land. Originally, I was worried that it would be an issue because he has a tendency to toe-walk. This is an issue that has definitely worsened while staying safe at home for so long. Research showed that horseback riding could help with this, though. Ok, my … Continue reading Riding Horses With My Son

I Hate Waking My Son Up

My 13 year old epitomizes the term "heavy sleeper." The worst part of my day has always been any time that I have to wake him up. Homeschool definitely makes that part easier because I can try to let him wake up naturally. Not always, though, because he has been known to sleep all day. … Continue reading I Hate Waking My Son Up

Horseback Riding For Dummies

So I started a thing! Horseback riding lessons! My friend, Paige, (the same one who encouraged my new chicken mama life) has been taking lessons. She offered to gift me an intro lesson and even though, I had serious concerns about my lack of flexibility/strength/coordination, I went for it. And bonus: you're pretty much guaranteed … Continue reading Horseback Riding For Dummies

A New Hair-Do Can Change Your Whole Outlook On Life

It is a universal truth (if it isn't, it should be!) that women change their hair when they want to control something in their lives. I'm no exception. I have been guilty of impulsive hair cutting in my bathroom. I have also been guilty of angry hair cutting after fighting with my husband. There have … Continue reading A New Hair-Do Can Change Your Whole Outlook On Life

Visualizing With My Vision Board

I was invited to a vision board party and I was immediately stoked. Admittedly, that was because I read the words "I'm keeping the invite list small." I made the cut! She likes me, she really likes me! 😂 Then I realized that I had no idea what a vision board was or a party … Continue reading Visualizing With My Vision Board

My Thrive Experience

In a previous post, I mentioned that I have been using Thrive. So I thought I would use it as an excuse to write another review! I'm also very curious about others' experiences if anyone out there is also "thriving." I don't claim to be super knowledgable about Thrive. I just claim to like the … Continue reading My Thrive Experience

The Person That I Want To Be

I feel like I'm still figuring out who I am. I believe that I am inherently a good person but sometimes (ok, lots of times), I get reminders that I'm still a work in progress. I'm also a person who is obsessed lately with buying positive message shirts like these. So back to the reminders … Continue reading The Person That I Want To Be
