To A New Year and the Best Version of Yourself Welcome back! This is a bit late, I know. But, hey, better late than never. Well, never almost happened. This January marks three years from when I started this blog and it also meant my web hosting was about to expire. I was so overwhelmed with the renewal and cost of it all that I had come to decide to let my blog go. I haven’t been posting regularly and the cost just didn’t seem worth it to me. But, that little voice deep inside kept nagging me. A week…

No Annie Oakley Here Less than a month later and I already have one of my 35 By 35 things done! #27 is officially crossed off on my list. I’m no Annie Oakley here but I did alright for my first try at shooting a gun. It only took 30 years for my grandpa to finally teach me how to shoot which is crazy considering I grew up in a house full of guns. At least, I got a cool experience to share with my grandpa however late it was! One of the perks of living out in a small town…

You Gotta Love Yourself Boo Let’s get real for a moment with a topic that’s close to my heart, self-love. Self-love isn’t getting the love it should as often as it should. I get it, especially as women, we tend to put others first. Sometimes it’s our families, friends and sometimes even work. Whatever it is, the self-love gets put on the back burner and that needs to stop! Self-love needs to be at the front of our minds at all times. Just as they advise to put the oxygen mask on yourself before you helping others, your self-love needs…

 Just Go – Give Into Your Wanderlust When I was younger, I got the chance to travel a lot. By the time I turned 17 I had already visited 7 countries and had traveled to a few different states back east. Most of those trips, I had done without my parents. Between mission trips and Girl Scouts, every year of high school I went on a trip. The last big trip I went on, until recently, was to Europe for 6 weeks with one other girl. Just a couple of weeks after I graduated high school, I was jet-setting abroad and…
