Reader Survey | Let’s Hear It!

Hey all, it's been a while since I checked in. I've been doing a lot of thinking about this good 'ol bloggity blog and decided I want to know where we're at. I continue to share my thoughts and experiences over here, and I'm good with that, but I want it to be a good experience for you as well. So... I decided to put together a short survey. Here's how it works. You click the link below and answer a…

Alaska Part 1 | Anchorage

I’ve mentioned our trip to Alaska in a couple posts before, but I have yet to share any details. I still don’t really know where to start, we explored so many new places and added about 20 things to our bucket list instead of crossing them off.

Our 2016 in review | My view from a new year

Wow, 2016 ended with a bang. I've been trying to give myself a break from the internet for a while because I had a hard time dealing with all the negativity post-election. Whether they were joking or not, a lot of my contacts were choosing to focus on the low points of the year. In thinking about it, yeah, a lot of bad things happened globally, but so did a lot of good things. And when I narrow my focus…
