16 years

K, Tammy, Dan and Beck

Last week, my husband and I recently celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. 16 years married… hard to believe. Some days it seems like it hasn’t been 6 years and other days it feels that he’s been a part of my life forever. (that’s a good thing y’all) We’ve been through many serious ups and downs [...]

I got bit by the travel bug


I just love planning trips for our family vacations. I’ve definitely become a loves-to-travel type of girl. I love getting out of our normal way of life and experiencing some adventure.

Let’s have some fiction shall we ?

5 goals for 2014


I know many people this time of the year are making and breaking resolutions. Personally, I don’t believe in resolutions. Goals are more realistic and sets you up for success.

My 2014 words – Adventure, Write and Love

2014 Goals - Adventure, Write, Love

Every year for the past few years , I’ve chosen a word or words to help guide me through that year. Sometimes the words are a perfect fit for what happens.

I’ve officially accepted that it is now 2014. I just want to know… where did 2013 go ? As each year passes, it seems that a “year” seems to be shorter and shorter. I know that it is the same amount of time each and every year but it seems things happen at a faster [...]
