"Give Yourself the Final Rose."

With Bachelor in Paradise in full swing, Alabama Hannah and her failed engagement are already old news (in the best way). A lot of us are so guilty of spending hours mindlessly watching the drama unfold on all of the Bachelor franchise series that it made me think about how we can use lessons from The Bachelor in our own lives. Today we're getting uncomfortable and talking about self-love​. What would the Bachelorette look like if she chose herself for once?

6 Things We Learned from our PCS to Alaska

Another year, another PCS season. In our short time with the military, we've managed to experience two of the most popular types of moves in just a year. When we did our DITY move to Georgia, I shared some lessons we learned so I figured I would do the same to talk about our experience getting moved by military movers to Alaska.

Currently in my Shopping Cart, 8/6/19

It’s actually been a hot minute since I wrote one of these posts. Like, where did July go? We are finally settled and it’s such a good feeling, even if it was just in time for my husband to leave for a month. I’ve got lots of fun things to share with you guys for August. I’m getting the finishing touches to the nursery so that I can finally share that. I’m so excited for Jasper to have his own space. Well, two actually since we’re also making him a play area downstairs. I’m also starting to think about fall because it’s getting cooler here already. But I’m definitely not complaining. Give me all the fall vibes, please!

"Do More of What You Love."

A few days ago, I shared on my Instagram stories that I had it placed on my heart to start writing more inspirational content on a weekly basis. I love writing a good favorites post and sharing what I’ve learned about military life with you guys but the truth is there is just SO MUCH that I want to write and share with the world, I just didn’t really know how to get it done. After I put it out to the universe (aka you guys) I saw that YOU all were just as excited about this series as I was. When a good insta friend mentioned that they were HERE FOR THIS and that there was a real hole in blogging and social media for this kind of thing, I knew I was on the right path.
