Oh my gosh it has been a minute since I have blogged and I have to admit, I have missed it a little bit ๐Ÿ™‚ I have been a little busy lately and focusing more than ever on really being present to what is right in front of me and thankfully, what has been right in front of me lately has not been my computer screen ๐Ÿ˜‰ More on that later!

Good Morning and happy Monday to you all! I put together a little health post for today about our mental health, and how we can help our mind stay short with some simple activities that many of you probably already do ๐Ÿ™‚ So it turns out, pregnancy brain IS a thing and so is “new mommy brain”.

JoMarie’s First Valentines Day

I LOVE Valentine’s Day and I always have! Long before I had a Valentine of my own or before I got to celebrate Jo’s first Valentines Day with her, I have just always loved this Holiday. My Mother is 100% to blame ๐Ÿ˜‰ She always went over and beyond on both Valentine’s Day and Easter with making my day so special each year! I remember feeling so loved and excited to wake up on these Holiday’s and search for my Easter basket or find a cute little something for me on the kitchen table the morning of V-day. This has 100% rubbed off on me as there is nothing I...

Are You Being Help Back? How You Can Change Your Lifestyle For The Better

Helloooo! I hope you are all having a great week! It is crazy to think that January is coming to an end, how is everyone doing on those 2017 goals? Here is a little post to help you carry on with those goals. January seems to be the month where we all like to make some changes. Those changes might have to do withย losing weight, getting our finances in order or finally going for that promotion atย work. But what some of us would really like is to change our lifestyle in general. This tends to cover the food we eat, the way we feel both physically and mentally, and habits...

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind

Well hello!! A little healthy lifestyle post for you today ๐Ÿ™‚ Living out a healthy lifestyle is so much more than working out! It’s a LIFESTYLE, so it’s being as healthy as you can throughout all aspects of your life. Staying physically fit, eating foods that our bodies love, keeping ourselves mentally healthy, glorifying our relationships, feeding ourselves spiritually. Being home these lat 6 weeks, I have realized how keeping my house in SOME WHAT of an order is really important for me. I do get anxiety when things get too messy. Don’t get me wrong, I am fully aware that sometimes the dishes will wait and clothes will sit...
