Are you still stuffed from Thursday? I feel like my body is saying so… I want to be active and work off the extra weight of food consumed, but why is it that I just want to curl up in bed and take a nap instead? Haha! I’m going to need that extra caffeine today, […]

So I’ve been drinking a LOT more tea than coffee lately. Does that mean I need to change the blog series title “Coffee Talk Mondays”?! I found out how to make a very yummy keto-friendly chai tea latte at home and I’ve been obsessed since then! So how about an alliteration like “Tea Talk Tuesdays!” […]

I’m currently typing this blog post on a VERY chilly day in Florida. Ollie is awaiting his daily morning walk, and I’m currently on hold until the heavy rain stops. In fact, we are under a “freeze warning.” Believe it or not, it can be COLD in Florida. 29-degrees in November doesn’t seem to be […]

Alex and I are back from the other side of the world!!! YAY!! Although, jetlag is kicking our BUTTS. We just got back yesterday morning so sleeping last night at midnight when it’s Noon in Thailand was harsh… Let’s just say that hopefully tonight will be much better. 🙂 There’s a lot on our minds […]

I think this is the first “Coffee Talk Mondays” post actually featured on a Monday instead of a Tuesday from the past month. Haha! I’m at Panera in Tennessee on my drive down to Florida as I type this blog post. 🙂 I decided to take a break halfway through my trip to get Ollie […]

Should be interesting to live in a warm state during the Holidays! But I’m actually here in Virginia just in time to acknowledge that it’s fall. HA! I just finished my […]

Welp … At this point, this “Coffee Talk Mondays” post should be “Coffee Talk Tuesdays.” 😉 I just dropped off my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at the airport and despite the editing/emails/blogging on my plate, I was happy to put everything aside for family knowing that our time together was precious. It went by way too […]

Whew! What a weekend! I was in Virginia for a short trip to stand by my best friend on her wedding day. 🙂 I flew in late last night (Fortunately I made it back in time for a networking event this morning — You’ll see why below.), so I am looking at my to-do list […]

I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend!!! Is it really September?!!?! No way. It’s a short work week for me as I only have today and tomorrow to work before I head to VA for my best friend’s WEDDING! Eeeeppp!!! Cannot wait! This past week was busy mostly because I spent […]

This is a short and sweet post because last week involved a lot of editing, but also a nice sense of adventure!! 🙂 This week will be a week of more editing, more settling into our house (we have our first official guests staying with us in a few weeks!!!), and a TON of client […]
