Dream 2021 Bucket List

At least in the US, traveling again seems like a distant fantasy. With COVID-19 still killing thousands and no end insight, we can only dream about what will come next year. I’m a major planner, so this time of insecurity has taken a toll on me. I’m trying to be more present in the now,…

Home Buying 101

I never dreamed that at 32, I would not only own a home, but own two. I’m going to put it out there that a lot of this was my husband’s doing. My husband has always been more frugal and me…well, let’s just say a Chanel purse is on bucket list. My husband and I…

New Cookbooks for Quarantine

Like many of you, I’m being more adventurous in the kitchen during quarantine. I’ve always liked cooking and have pinned many different recipes on my Pinterest. To help some local businesses, I have been buying more cookbooks. Or at least that’s what I tell my husband. 😉 I love cookbooks. I love the recipes, pictures,…

Sunday Thoughts: Why am I blogging?

As I stated last Sunday, today I will get into why I started blogging. To many, blogging is a dying industry. Not because people aren’t interested in content, but new content is more visual than verbal. Social Media apps like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok are on the forefront of these mediums. I do love Instagram…
