Be your own cheerleader…

After almost two weeks back at work under my belt, I found myself feeling eager to share some thoughts. It feels SO good to be back at work. Sometimes I feel guilty saying that because I really cherished and enjoyed every second I had home when I was laid off from my previous position. I…

My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Staying positive…

Today marks 8 years since my brother left this world. I would love to say it has become easier, but it hasn’t. I still think of him every single day and wonder how life would be different if he were still around. I thought getting married and not having him there would be one of…

Happy 2017 💕

It’s so hard to believe it’s already 2017. Where has the time gone?! As crazy as it is, I’m happy that it’s here. There is one main reason I can’t wait for 2017–and that reason is that in a few short months our little lady will make her big arrival.  Being pregnant has been a…

Girl Power!

One thing that always makes me happy is receiving a nice compliment from another woman or paying a compliment to another woman.  The other day I was standing in line paying for some lunch and this lady stopped me in my tracks to tell me how much she loved my engagement ring. It honestly caught…

Feel GOOD Friday…Exercise=Endorphins

Although it is pretty pricey, I have no regrets in joining Equinox.  For me, I love all the classes at Equinox.  They are all challenging, but fun, and I always leave feeling like I got a good workout.  I enjoy working out–I feel like it is a time for me to focus on myself and…

Please make this cough go away- Weekend Recap

This weekend was a rough one, as I have been sick since Wednesday with this awful cold.  I had a sinus infection in January, which was also pretty bad and usually I only get one bad cold per year.  Apparently this year is different.  I think it is all the ups and downs of the…

Off to Key West!

Today I am off to Key West for the long weekend.  I am super excited as this is my first time visiting.  We are celebrating three of my friends–Jaclyn, Hallie, and Katherine’s 30th birthdays.  It is so weird to think that in four months I will also be 30.  I am not quite sure where…
