Hi guys! I don’t know about you, but I feel like there is always something that needs to be done. I’m trying to be fully present while at work, fully present with my son when I’m home, and still keep up with regular workouts, my skincare routine, my devotional life, keeping the house clean, building my business – it can be a lot. The last thing I’m trying to do in the midst of all that is spend a lot of time figuring out what to cook and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s just not my thing. So, this week, I looked over my recipe bank, and my son and I spent some time talking about what some of his favorite meals are while I put together this week’s meal plan. I thought it’d be fun to share what some of our go-to’s are for our busy lifestyle.

Hi guys! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may remember that I took on a reading challenge at the beginning of this year. I’ve never really been in a book club before, and I’ve never been told, ‘hey, you need to read more’, or anything like that. But it was something that I wanted to accomplish for myself. I completed a leadership program in 2019, and there was a lot of reading involved, more than I’d done in a long time. But surprisingly, I enjoyed it.

So, I started buying more books and got more as gifts over the next year and half, but as it tends to do, life happened and I didn’t make time to read. So, at the start of 2021, I made it a goal to start reading at least one book per month.

Still Working from Home, But….

Hi guys! One thing I never thought I’d be able to do with my current job is work from home. Yet, here I am, 440+ days in and still primarily teleworking. It’s been an interesting experience for me. One that I’ve been very grateful for but interesting nonetheless. In the beginning, I was hit with more work than I thought I could handle. We were all transitioning to a posture we’d never been in before, and it took some time to figure out what the new routine was going to be. I think we were all pushed to limits we didn’t think we could handle before (in more ways than one!), but all-in-all, I’m happy to say that I’ve been much more productive at home. What I didn’t expect though was the toll it would take on my body.
