Tomorrow marks the middle point of the year. It feels like it's gone faster than most years and 2015 has certainly been a challenging one for me (so far). It's not really gone according to plan and I've been left feeling a bit deflated and exhausted by it all. But I'm a big believer in the power of a fresh start. In deciding to remember that "what's done is done" and there's … [Read more...]

Why Taking Little Chances Can Be Better Than Taking Big Ones // Click for more

The other day I saw a notebook for sale with the words "take epic chances" on the cover. But instead of feeling motivated or uplifted by that statement, I felt anxious and like there was just too much pressure. Epic is a loaded word. Can you know your chances are epic before you take them? Is what's epic to me, epic to you? (Am I over thinking this? Probably.) It was in seeing … [Read more...]

I love the internet for making connecting from far away easy, but it's not quite the same thing. It really … [Read more...]

At one point or another we all need to collect and keep important files for our homes and lives. Insurance documents; passports; medical files; birth certificates; deeds; etc. Some we need to keep in a safe place forever and others may go out of date (like employment contracts from 3 jobs ago or even instruction manuals for appliances that you don't own anymore).

In two days time this blog will officially be 2 years old. TWO! It seems so weird that it's been around so long and that it's only been around two years, all at the same time. It's so engrained in what I do each day that I forget what it was like before it was here. It has changed my life for the better, and I'm so thankful for it. That sounds weird because it's a blog, but … [Read more...]
