“I breathe in. I breathe out. Got friends to call who let me talk about what ain't working, what's still hurtin', all the things I feel like cussing out. Now and then I let it go. I ride the waves I can't control. I'm learning how to build a better boat.” -Kenny Chesney
I know I’ve used these lyrics before, but I find this song so healing. It’s been a tough few months for me...working through some things with a person at work. But I’m blessed to have people to talk to, who listen and understand, and don’t judge. People who help me grow and be a better me instead of tear me down and make me doubt everything about myself. #neededachange#weightoffmyshoulders#betterme#betterboat#kennychesney#ilovesunsets#smalltownlife#yesitsnowed#ihatesnow
Friday’s are my favorite because 1. Friday’s are date night, and 2. It means I have two full days ahead to spend with my ❤️. When you’re a military spouse, every second counts!
Happy Friday, and cheers to a great weekend! 🥂
Sometimes we stumble on gratitude in ways we might not expect. Cleaning out the junk drawer this morning, I started to grumble about the chaos contained in that tiny space. It took me half a second to reframe that thought. Unlike so many folks in the fire ravaged areas here in California, I still have my house, my family, my pets, and yes, even a junk drawer to clean out. The view from my deck may be obscured by the smoky air, but the list of things I’m feeling grateful for today is so clear and still growing. Find gratitude in the small moments of your day today. #gratitude#begrateful#simplelife#simplejoys#smalltownlife#california
Vulnerability is difficult for most people, including myself.
We all like to feel like we have it all together at all times. With social media today, we can make everyone believe that, that's the truth too.
The problem is, that's not reality. We all want to feel loved, wanted, accepted, and the more likes and comments we get, gives us that false sense of acceptance.
I'm guilty of at times relying on that too. That may feel good for a brief time but its fleeting.
Here is something to remember, you can find happiness and acceptance within yourself and from a God that loves you no matter any situation!
Surround yourself with people that love you not only when life is all rainbows but when your a mess, when your mascara is running, and your having trouble just functioning throughout your day! Surround yourself with people who will encourage you, build you up, and just listen!
Life is hard, but it is also your biggest blessing! Make the most of it!

Same shirt, 3 months apart. It’s not a secret diet. It’s learning to make better choices, learning to fuel instead of feed. Learning that it takes discipline not motivation. It’s having a group of friends, even some I met on Instagram, pushing me to be my best.
Today I’m thankful that I took a chance 3 months ago. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
Are you ready to take a chance?
If we’ve been friends for ANY length of time, you know I love to: 1. Save 2. Not spend a lot of $$ and 3. Frigging LOVE helping women like me get results in their health and fitness at home without spending a bunch of moola!

We all have different wants and desires in life. Mine has always been to live a simple life near the mountains with close family and friends. To walk this earth with grace, modesty, and humility. To travel in getting to know the world I live in rather than compete with a friend on travel “bucket lists”. Wish to wake up each morning and do the simple things we often neglect- a cup of coffee with a view and play some meaningful mind stimulating music. To ponder over the beauty of nature and give thanks for those small moments. These days we wake up with phone notifications and endless stress. Starting today, I will not allow any stress to take over my mind or get in the way of me achieving my goals. My goal is to build a life for myself that will allow me to do the small things I’ve always loved doing. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend and are able to escape from whatever that stresses you and find tranquility in the small things YOU love doing. Something as simple as taking a nature walk can be uplifting. So do it. Love ya! 💕😘#thebroadmoor#coloradosprings#weekendvibes#smallthingsinlife#simpleliving#mountaintops#smalltownlife#citygirlturnedcountrygirl#smalltowngirlnow#wouldnttradeitforanything
Yesterday, the twins and I had a little bakery date before school, and it was well worth the bit of fun and quality time (and sugar) we had. We also go to see the big orange ball of sun rise over the countryside on the drive in! 🌅
As I mostly solo parent, I’ve started a positive parenting course as I’m trying to learn tips to parent in ways that don’t consume so much of my energy (yelling, nagging, reminding, feeling exasperated and —- gosh I HATE it but I still do those things!!) ... so I need to learn more tools ⚒ to try! So, a spontaneous fun little adventure to the bakery before school we had! Thanks to a fellow RD friend for this idea. ☺️
