Secrets to Being Happily Married For a Decade
My husband and I have been married for over a decade, and together for over 12. I can count on one hand the number of times I thought that things might not last between us. We have been through a lot as a couple - job losses, apartment fire, two miscarriages, cross country move, moving twice in 10 months and now sharing a home with my parents.

What is the Secret to Growth and Success?

What is the Secret to Growth and Success?
The messy secret behind growth and success is that there are always challenges before we rise. What I’ve found is that it is during the challenging times that we grow the most. It’s up to us to decide whether we shrivel up and die (metaphorically), or grow stronger than ever before.

Twenty Things To Leave Behind in 2020 (Part 1)
Moving into a new decade is an exciting time! I want to go through several things that we can really work on together and I genuinely mean together because I struggle with these just as much as everyone else does.  Let’s move into the next decade with a lot of compassion, kindness, gratitude, and self-love.

Ready For The Next Decade?

Ready For The Next Decade?
There are many blog posts, articles, videos, social posts and emails about doing a review of the past decade and preparing for the next. I've been finding it all a bit overwhelming. The holidays are a great time of year to review the past year and prepare for the next. I've been obsessed with goal setting and 3-5 year plans for over a decade.
