Snow Day

Today was an official snow day for us. The office shut down and the schools were closed. However, the hubs went to work because he works at the hospital and it never closes. I had to spend the day solo with the littles which makes me a little nervous. Lately, there has been a lot of terrible two … More Snow Day

Reflecting on 2016

It has been one of the most challenging yet rewarding year of my life so far. I have to say 2016 was the year that I truly understood the power of human connection.

Around this time of the year, Zoey and Axel know that Santa and his elves are working overtime to wrap and deliver presents to kids who are nice on Christmas eve.

Unfortunately, most of our fireplaces … More White Fireplace Mantels

Elum Designs- Giveaway!

Whatever happened to sending handwritten notecards or writing your thoughts down in a journal? Whenever I receive a personal note in the mail, it always makes me smile.

Focus on the Journey

I don’t know what’s happening with me but lately, I’ve been looking at life a whole lot differently. I’m more in tuned with the journey rather than the trophy. I’m going through some professional transitions right now and have been actively networking a lot– a process that I’m not that great at (or so I … More Focus on the Journey
