    My first podcast interview

    I am still learning the ropes on all things blog and social media as I begin to try to document more of this journey I call my life. I have been learning so many things along the way about parenting, homeschooling, and physical/spiritual/emotional health; so it only makes sense that I share what I’ve learned like others who have gone before me. With that being said, I was a little nervous to actually be interviewed for a podcast. I’m sure glad I did though! It was a really neat experience, and I’d love to do more with podcasts and videos in the future. Achieving Veteran Status I suppose having three…

    Savoring December

     The busiest month of the year Like just about everyone else, I am busy. My to do list is long, and my life is full! Savoring each day and moment is important to me, though, because I know how quickly time seems to fly by. So, in a month when there are so many events and things to get done, I am intentionally trying to purpose to savor the moments in each day. My oldest son will be getting married at the end of the month, just days after Christmas. If anything will make you get into checklist mode, it’s having Christmas and your firstborn’s wedding happen within a week…
