Setting Goals for the New Year

Welcome to 2016. I know this is a few days late but for many of us today feels like the start of the new year. It is the return to work, school, schedules, etc. It is the new beginning after the long holiday weekend. In some ways I am feeling a little sad about the start of this year. I love having my family home for the holidays and spending a lot of quality time together. Today, that all changes as everyone heads back to more normal routines. However, in other ways I am looking forward to this new start. This year will bring changes to our family that are exciting for me both personally...

The Single Valentine

Christmas Gift Ideas

I love giving gifts! It is one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I love spending time looking to the perfect gift for every person on my list. Something that tells them I put thought into what they would like and what would make them feel special. There is something special about seeing someone open a gift that you put a lot of thought into. However, as much as I love gift giving there can also be a lot of stress associate with it. The idea of shopping and facing the crowds of crazy shoppers. The money that can be spent can make you feel like your budget is out the window! The idea of...

Taking Back the Holidays (Ways to cut out stress)

It seems like lately the holidays have become increasingly intense and stress-filled. There are so many expectations, demands, and pulls on our┬átime, energy, money, and other resources. It is so easy to get wrapped up in all the demands of the holiday season and the internet doesn’t help. I have said it before, and the holidays are no exception, but sites like Facebook, instagram, and pintrest only help to make the stress worse. We are constantly seeing images that others post of perfectly decorated homes, amazing gifts, and perfect holiday meals. Combine that with all the other...
