2017, Where Have You Gone??

I am not a big New Year’s resolution person. It’s totally fine if you are, it just doesn’t ever workout for me. Except twice. In 2015, a friend and I made a goal to run 15 races that year.

A Few of My Favorite Summer Things

Happy summer!!! Since today is officially the first day of summer, I thought I would take some time to write about my favorite things about summer!

My First Blog Post!

As I am new to blogging, I think it is best you all know a little bit about me. I am not really an expert, but I have a lot of interests and hobbies. And I figure, why should I keep them to myself? If I can help someone else, how great is that! I have been married to my…
