This is MY 40

As I have been preparing myself for 40, I have spent almost a month reflecting on my journey to here. Sure I could talk about all that has happened since Pressing Pause at 39, but it’s more than that. Preparing for 40 has been about reflecting on the overflowing, ever reaching love of God. In every season, He was present. He was in the moving, revealing the masterpiece He placed within me even when my brokenness seemed to scatter me into pieces. Moving beyond the comfortable places, taking me further th[...]

No Drama: 3 way to prioritize your marriage and avoid stress during the holidays

Oh, just thinking about the holiday season gives me all the feels. From gathering around the table with family and friends at Thanksgiving to dancing around to the hubby’s Christmas playlist, I look forward to this time of year.

On top of that, one of them is usually moving SLOWLY. Yes, I will not fuss I tell myself over and over UNTIL. I have an until, do you? That moment you are good until the milk spills on the floor when you need to leave the house the car won’t star[...]

It’s been one year

Hello friends, Yesterday we celebrated our one-year blogaversary.  What a year it has been!  Instead of forging forward with a new blog post or a blogaversary party, I decided to take a pause. A pause to embrace right were I am. A pause to recognize all the steps to this point. A pause to acknowledge the support of others who helped me get here. A pause to assess the cost of making it to this point. A pause to remember the getting back up when I wanted to quit it all away. A pause to praise God for r[...]
