Hey! So – I have been hearing a lot about gratitude lately. I’ve been working to re-implement my habit of writing down the things I am grateful for every day. Gratitude lists are one of the first homework assignments that I received from my sponsor when I got sober. And it works! But, life gets … More Vibe Check
I have been learning from a lot of people lately. One of the people I have been learning from is Amanda Frances (xoamandafrances on all the social medias).

While I don’t disagree with either of those definitions, I have now begun to question that … More Stop Living In Your Mean….
𝑶𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒖𝒑𝒐𝒏 𝒂 𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆, there was a little girl and her mama. They both had dreams that were much larger than they were! They spent a lot of time together, dreaming about the future and chatting about it.

Sometimes it feels like yesterday, and other times it feels like forever ago. Going from so much space to a 38-foot coach has certainly … More Would I Do It Again?
As we drove home from our 10 day trip yesterday, I started thinking about this blog. I was reviewing in my mind what I needed to put where when we unloaded the car.
