Baby laughing!! Short teaser

I have been wanting to blog about becoming an empty nester for almost a year. I want to not only create a place for me to look back on to see what we did in the early years of our newly found freedom, but also to encourage other women who are in the same nest I am(or soon will be)

"I'll have so much more time"   "How will I ever fill my days without my girls here?"   "Will my superman and I get bored with one another?"

I truly thought I would have more time!! 

2016 was a heck of a year for our family from beginning to end!

I hope to share so much with you in my posts from fun adventures we took, crafts we did, restaurants we tried, heartache we endured, and how to make to most of life on a daily basis. 

One thing I have found to be true...I don't miss all the laundry

Because I am a bit of a control freak, I wanted a co-leader to be a fun lady who would have a blast with the girls, and do what I needed done. Which was basically show up and go on fun trips with us. Cindy is always a blast and she loves …

Kitchen re-do.....done?

So I really did have better intentions of blogging more this year, and well as you can see I have it's been a while...

I have been abundantly blessed in my job this year. The real estate market is gradually picking up and interest rates are still so incredibly low. It has been a blast helping people sell a current home and buy a new home. I wish I could put into words how excited I am when I see "that look" on my clients face when they walk into "their" house. It's like the desire to do cartwheels tempered with the prospect of making a offer that crosses their faces at the same time. It can almost make me giggle. Then comes my favorite part...the negotiation. I LOVE IT! So, if you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell please pass my name along.

I wanted to share a bit today about another question I get quite often...

What should I upgrade in my house? How much should I do?

I am always happy to come have a look to determine what needs done and how much t…
