A Sunny Start to 2023

Hello hello my lovely blog friends! To start 2023 I actually took a vacation with my parents and grandma (unfortunately my amazing husband had to work and couldn’t make it). This was a vacation we had planned back in April of 2022 when my Mom signed up for RunDisney and I am SO glad we…

New Year, Same Me (Kinda…)

I am NOT big on New Year Resolutions, but I love making goals for myself as we head into a new year. Each year they change a little, but I try to make them attainable and things that will make me happier. It’s always nice to start fresh with a new year and new goals!…

Book Goals 2023

I am someone who likes to set up goals at the start of the year – though never anything that is completely life changing. I like to set up a reading schedule, or workout schedule, for myself to set myself up for success in the year ahead! This year ahead, after a rough mental year…

Top 5 Christmas Movies

Okay – let me preface this blog post by saying I am either a 12 year old or a 95 year old when it comes to my taste in Christmas movies. I love Christmas movies so, so much from the newest and star studded movies to the classics! This list is purely the movies I…

Cozy Reads for the Cozy Season

I was recently introduced to cozy fantasy books novels and I have not turned back! I read one last month and fell head over heels in love with it. I immediately started looking for more and so fare have found one, but hope to find more! How about introducing you all to the book that…

While it’s not winter yet, we certainly are feeling the Christmas spirit here with music on the radio and Hallmark channel starting its annual countdown! I figured with the Christmas season coming and a time of gifting ahead, I would share some of…

Joy in Everyday Life

I was fortunate enough to be sent copies of Choose Joy (a coloring notecard book) and The 3-Minute Journal of Joy from Ink and Willow! These lovely books could not be more perfect for me as I rebranded my Instagram and blog as “A Lifetime of Joy” this summer! Both of these would be fantastic…

To Watch DWTS or Not To…

Well, I have been a faithful watcher of Dancing with the Starts (DWTS) for years now and I have seen it through many ups and downs (thought it has felt like more downs lately). For now I am going to just post about my thoughts on this season as it’s at its half way point…

Music to Read By

Music Playlist on Spotify: How about some music to read by on this Wednesday? Little known fact about me, I actually went to school for Music Education, not only that but I LOVED to teach my kiddos about music history and movie music while I was still an educator. I am a FIRM believer in…

OOTD-Midwestern Cowgirl

I thought it might be fun to break apart my outfit of the day or “OOTD” once in a while! I always love to shop deals and I think once you find your personal style, no matter what it is, it can be so empowering! My style really changes with my mood and the season,…
