Do You Fear Change or Crave It?

I’m addicted to change. I can finally acknowledge this and say it out loud. I’m not talking small changes like dying your hair or painting a room. I love big changes and accomplishments, like moving, getting married, starting a new business, traveling, having a child, going back to school, etc. I’m not sure whether thisContinue reading “Do You Fear Change or Crave It?”

Trying to Break the Social Media Addiction:

Two years ago, I took two month long breaks from social media. It was glorious and I missed nothing while I was off of it.

December 2021 Financial Update:

Happy New Year! Let’s hope 2022 is a bit kinder to us than 2020 and 2021… Honestly, for me, 2020 & 2021 were neutral, boring years. I really didn’t do much other than work, read, & write.

November 2021 Financial Update:

For us, November was a chill month. I mostly just cleaned & worked on my blog and Instagram. Then we had Thanksgiving with our families, that’s about it.

We’re focusingContinue reading “November 2021 Financial Update:”
