Time to Fly…Again

So far our family has 3 trips planned this summer. Which can be exciting, but also dreadful. I began travelling with Olivia when she was about 3 months old. Now, as you can imagine, she started sleeping less and less as she got older. Our last flight was dreadful and made me regret not buying ...

Uncertainty of it All

Working my direct sales business has been incredible. I'm not only saying that because I want you to believe it, it really has.

5 Things I Carry On A Trip

In my travel experience I have run into a ton of problems. For example, one time I spilled a whole Teavana Tea from Starbucks all over my jeans while waiting for Christian to pick me up from the airport. Or the time i'd have a "natural" weekend with zero makeup, only to be taken out ...

3 Things That Happen When Your Spouse Goes Away On A Deployment/Training Cycle

As a military spouse of 4 years, I've been through my share of deployments/training cycles with Christian. Now I'm no expert, but for new military spouses, these are things you can expect.  1.

Hello Fresh vs. Blue Apron

I've been luck enough to have received free boxes through friend referrals. In advance I apologize for not taking more pictures while unpacking or preparing.
