national severe storm preparedness week – how to become certified in first aid

Maybe it’s a sign that I am becoming more of an adult, but I am paying more and more attention to the news. It seems like every other week there is some kind of severe storm warning either at home or somewhere in the country. I’m sure that it snowed, rained, hurricane-ed, blizzard-ed, and tornado-ed my whole life, but now I am more on the lookout with grown up demands like driving and traveling.

home security – my new monthly utility

I will never forget the day my husband bought me my very first cell phone. I didn’t want it and thought it was a complete waste of money. I looked at it as more of an annoyance than anything else. I didn’t think it was necessary for someone to get ahold of me every second of the day. It basically sat uncharged on the kitchen counter for months.

battery day – how to recharge your mental batteries

I’m sure I’m not the only one that likes to push myself in most areas of my life. Sometimes my overachieving tendencies leave me exhausted, overwhelmed, overextended, or even worse, ready to snap. We push ourselves for many reasons…to feel smarter, more productive, more accomplished…and suddenly we reach a limit we didn’t know we had. Ever been there?

kindness

I recently read a story in the news about a 13-year-old boy who was interviewed by a local street photographer. During the interview, he was asked “Who’s influenced you the most in your life?’ He said it was his school’s principal and told about how she had impacted his life by believing in him and showing him that he mattered.  Because of these kind words more than $1-million has been raised online for his school.  This money will be used for class trips and scholarships.

#VivintinesDay: Life Happens

Their third Valentine’s Day as a married couple–a few years later–was, as Valentine’s often can be, somewhat of a letdown. She was pregnant with their first child and she wasn’t feeling her prettiest. Did he still see her as he had seen her those years before in that sandwich shop? All blonde hair and false eyelashes? Some days it didn’t seem like it.

get to know your customers day

It’s 2015 and one thing I’ve noticed is that competition is everywhere. I can Google “pizza” and immediately find close to ten options within fifteen miles of my house. Crazy, right?

streamlining the holidays: holiday party plan

There are very (very) few things in life that I am an expert in. I am probably more of a “jack of all trades, master of none” when it comes to life. “A work in progress” is another way to say it. But there is one area of my life that I have pretty dialed in, and that is party planning.
