Hi friend!

I am so glad you are here!  I spent a good long time in dark places and I want to make sure that my time spent there is not wasted.  These days I work very hard to maintain a happy, healthy, wealthy life.  This blog is about sharing ways to keep yourself in the light, to have more time for the important things, to be the best person, mom and you that you can be.

I am always here to answer any questions, give advice or just listen if that’s what you need.  I don’t have “real” office hours but I typically respond within 24 hours.  You can find me on

Hi Mama

I’m wife to my high school sweetheart, and mama to three little girls: Everleigh, Magnolia & Juniper. I LOVE motherhood, holidays and hot chocolate. I crave efficiency and NEED to figure out the easiest and best way to do EVERYTHING. Life is short & I refuse to waste it on being boring.
