Travel, Dating and Finding The One

I’ve always wanted to travel oversees. Particularly places like Ireland, France and the UK. The landscapes are beyond breathtaking and to be honest, the accents on the men make them even more attractive *swoon*. I’ve been fortunate in life... I met my husband when I was 16, got married at 18 and started my family at 21. I’ve never really been much of an adventurous type, but if I hadn’t found the love of my life at such an early age I maybe, … [Read more...]

If you are like me, I loathe hopping from store to store to find the one suit that flatters me most. By the end of the day I usually come home empty handed and my self esteem broken. From seasons past I have a general idea of the style that works best for me, so this year I’ve decided to take it to the internet (to save some gas and … [Read more...]

Eliminating the Clutter & Pocketing Some Change

Fifteen years ago I had my second baby and noticed my house was beginning to quickly get overrun with toys, clothes and equipment my children were outgrowing. Up until that point I had been having a yearly garage sale to help clear some of the clutter, but the stuff that collected between sales was starting to get to me. I would have loved to just donate it and be done, but with only one income I depended on the resale money to purchase new … [Read more...]
