Riding B#@$%

The motorcycle has always been fun for me, but that was before we were responsible for 3 little kids. Everything changes with kids, and one big change is the way I view the world. I used to love riding, I was proud of getting my bike license and looked forward to getting on the bike.... Continue Reading →

Realistic Expectations

I was raised Catholic. It is funny to say now as most people don't consider me very "Catholic" and I wonder what that means. However the religion isn't the point in this story it is the fact that every Sunday my Mom would take three girls to mass usually alone and every Tuesday we would... Continue Reading →

Living a life we love, managing stress and coping with anxiety

So, my first 30 years were the years I didn't know how to manage my stress. I often felt overwhelmed, suffered from chronic headaches as well as feelings of depression and anxiety. Everything from relationships to money to work to any sort of responsibility would be stressful for me. Today, I rarely get a headache... Continue Reading →

Fill your Bucket First

Freedom 55

So for those who don't know her, this is my mama. She was a single mom, who raised three girls all while working her job at CRA. I never remember my mom complaining about her work, she was always connected and involved with her coworkers, always taking extra courses or training and working her way... Continue Reading →

I should first say the recommendations I make are based on the fact that we are... Continue Reading →

Second Time Lucky

On January 29th, 2019 we had a sunset ceremony on a beach in Wailea with just the 5 of us. Our kids had their snack packs full of stuff they had picked out the day before, they had new buckets and shovels and even gum to keep them entertained with the promise of sparkling grape...
