What My $100,000 a Year Business Actually Looks Like

  March 2

At the end of last year, I shared on Facebook that I made over $100,000 from my business. I’ve made right around that number before, but for some reason, I felt like sharing it with the world instead of keeping it to myself. Maybe it’s because we went through hell and back at the end … Continued

I’m Changing My Parenting Mindset – No More “It Gets Better”

  January 10

I was walking out of the thrift store, arms bogged down with all my treasures (and a firetruck… and a filthy Scooby Doo vehicle… because that’s the only way I got my two toddlers to participate in my thrifting adventures.) I let a nice, old man go in front of me in the checkout line … Continued

When Your Husband Gets Into a Major Car Accident

  January 8

I was in my usual spot at the gym, not working out – of course – but working. I bring my laptop to the gym almost every day. I mooch off of their free coffee, and my kids play in the gym daycare. I use their high-speed internet, sip my coffee, and write. But that … Continued

5 Things My Grandpa Taught Me About Living Life to the Fullest

  March 28

A few days ago, my grandfather passed away. It was not unexpected because he had been sick for a few years, but it’s still hard. The main word I think of when I think of my grandfather is fun. He was just a really, really fun person. He had a bit of a wild streak and … Continued

3 Life Lessons I Learned from Joanna Gaines

  March 17

This week, I finished reading an incredible book that really surprised me (in a good way). Like millions of other people, I love Chip and Joanna Gaines and their hit TV show, Fixer Upper. So, I wanted to read their book, The Magnolia Story. I patiently waited on a list of people at my library to get … Continued

That Time I Found $231 In My Basement

  March 7

Yesterday was one of those crazy days that was full of highs and lows. In the morning, I talked to my accountant, Eric, who told me my tax bill was going to be about $2,000 more than I was expecting. Womp. Womp. One day I’ll get my business tax estimations right, but this year’s miscalculation … Continued
