Good Morning...

It's 8:43am on a Friday morning and I have been up since about 6am. Normally I would not be so happy about this but I am starting to adjust to this limited sleep schedule as my body gets used to this medication. I actually got a full night of sleep last night which doesn't happen often and I'm going to the movies today for the second time this week :)

Just wanted to put a little blog up today about the importance of appreciating every moment.. the good the bad and the in between. Life knows how to throw some curve balls which can leave us second guessing a lot of things but truth is those are times we usually learn the most. If every moment in life went exactly how we expected it to, how boring would that be? We don't want to live like the Stepford Wives movies so stop wishing for 'perfect' or 'normal' because the crazy is normal and the lessons we learn are perfect, as long as we take the time to pay attention...

I always tell people think outside of your box and for the past year have really tried to follow my own advise. I've hit stages and spoke to crowds I'd never would have dreamed of before, I went on camping retreats, caught my first fish and shrimp ever (and ate some!), started a vlog series, used as many random moments to create memories with my kids and more. Life isn't about fitting some ideal image or standard.. it's about living. It's about doing things to better your life and those lives around you.

So keep a smile on your face, dance to every good beat you hear, sing to every song you know and learn how to hit back those curve balls we get in life because once you master those tricky throws, amazing things can head your way!

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food?

What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot....

As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a sch…

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…

Rebirth

Time for me to put up one of the most honest and realest blogs you have ever seen from me. Since my break up at the end of 2011 I really haven't discussed it. I closed the door, shoved it under the rug and just kept my fingers crossed that every time I went out no one would ask me where 'he' was. I am sitting here looking at the last year. The things that have changed and decided it was time to write this...

In that relationship we had it all planned out: goals, dreams, cars, kids, marriage and more. I thought I had met the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with and I started living just that way. As though this was my husband and he was going to be at my side through it all, no matter what...

WRONG.

Life isn't that easy.. I should have known that but my happiness and desire for a real committed relationship clouded my decisions at the time. I won't discuss the details of  the break up or intimate details of the relationship but I will say it was …
