So I challenge you this summer to set some goals. And to make it more fun, I’m framing them into something I’m calling the 1000 – 100 – 10 challenge! You heard that right, I am challenging you to do 1000, 100, and 10 of 3 different things over the course of this summer. I […]

I refuse to use our oven on hot days. It seems counter-productive. This means our summer meal options are cold sandwiches, grilling, stove-top skillets, or something that hangs out in my crockpot all day.
Lets face it, normal life doesn’t stop just because it is Mother’s Day. Some everyday tasks still need finishing. Sometimes my expectations of the day do not allow me to notice the small wonderful things that my children do for me. And either I can focus on how bad I feel because I didn’t get […]
