I don’t really believe in New Year’s Resolutions… Hear me out: if I am going to set a goal, I would prefer to just do it when I feel like it’s necessary. I love that the new year is a time for reflection and new beginnings, but I feel like when I set goals in…

Anniversary #1 and a Happy New Year

Mason, one year ago today, you and I were sealed for time and all eternity. Starting this stage of our lives last year was the by far the best decision that I have ever made. I used to think that marriage would somehow hold me back. Wow, I have never been so happy to be…

Our Deepest Fear

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.…

Adulting 101: Please Help!
