Family+Fitness

  Family and fitness.  Two things I am very passionate about. One question I get a lot when talking about fitness is “How and when do you have time? So, I know I am a stay at home mom.  In turn, it is a tad bit easier than if I had a full time job. […]

Boots or Bows?

We have some lovely news. Would our baby be boots or bows? For those of you who know my family know that there are a lack of boys! Everyone has sisters and bless my dads heart he has ALWAYS been surrounded by women. Always! We were wondering if this time we would add a little […]

To Feel Is To Live

   To feel alive. You don’t need to be in any special place at any particular time to feel alive. You could feel alive anywhere. I took that feeling in this weekend as my little family was outside pretty much all weekend. We were in our own personal little slice of heaven in the mountains. […]

Just Breathe.

Compare This…

Living life without watching those around us is extremely hard.      Watching as the neighbor gets new things, buys that new car, has the latest and greatest, has better legs, a flatter tummy, a perfect relationship with their children, with their spouse… Sometimes comparison is overwhelming. That’s why we should just stop. We should […]
