My One Little Word for 2021

Image
 Every year that I've picked "one little word" to work on, it hasn't been little. It grows, gets complex and has lots of facets to it. But that's okay. I have 365 days to work on it, right? So with that being said, my word for 2021 is, I did not take choosing my word for the year lightly. I never do. I give it lots of thought and consideration. At first, the word that came to mind was "can". Like, "I can." But..."can" seems like an odd word just on its own. I hear it and think of canned veggies or fruit. So what can I do? What did I need to be able to do in this new year? I need to do some hard things. Mainly body related stuff and there is really only 1 hard thing that tops the list. So lets get into the categories of areas I can "Grow." Physically Spiritually Mentally Marriage First up - physically . I take this to mean body stuff - which I am never good with. I avoid body related things at all costs because it freaks me

Farewell 2020 and Good Riddance

A ton of crappy things happened this year but pales in comparison to those who lost their lives to Covid. I have been lucky (?) enough to not have gotten it yet even with traveling and being out and about. For a long time my sister and I would trade surveys for the year with each other, to fill out on New Years Eve. For a few years we stopped but I decided to start it up again this year and made a link in case you want to copy it and fill it out for yourself. It's not all cutesy because I am not good at that kind of thing really (but would like to be!) so here's the link and leave me a comment if you fill it out. You don't need to share your answers if you don't want to but I did include mine below.  I truly hope 2021 is a better year for you, for your family, friends and everyone in general. I know 2020 stretched us and made us grow in ways we never imagined. Praying for better times to be learning and growing next year! Looking back on 2020 Top 3 favorite things I di

Home Maintenance Checklist

**This post is sponsored by Homie ** Owning a home can be expensive and a lot of work. But if you break it down and work on this list monthly to maintain certain things in and with your home, it will certainly save you time, and money, for other fun projects you’d rather be doing. If you haven’t started maintaining your home this year, now is a good time to get started, with spring cleaning and all that starting to get underway. Don’t feel overwhelmed by this list, it’s to do throughout the year so you could pick one category each month to focus on. Roof How is your roof holding up? It’s one thing to peer up at it when you are outside but another to actually get a ladder and climb up higher to get a better view. How are the shingles holding up? Do you live in an area that doesn’t get much rain? You can wash the shingles yourself with a regular hose, no pressure washer needed. Just a light spray will do. If you have mildew or moss, you make up a mixture of dil

Parade of Homes ~ St. George, Utah!

Image
**This post is sponsored by Homie** I drove home from Utah on the 13th and on the 14th when Tony got off work, we turned around and drove back to Utah. This time, to St. George and this time, together. It was nice to zone out and let Tony take care of this part of the drive for once. Our decision for the holiday weekend was not made lightly. There was a travel show going on in L.A. that I've wanted to go to for the past few years or...the Parade of Homes was happening in St. George and I LOVE going to this event. After weighing the pros and cons and discovering Tony had Monday off from work, we opted for the longer drive and activities in St. George.

Office & Craft Room Ideas

**This post is sponsored by Homie ** Last year when I attended the Parade of Homes in Utah, I got to see quite a lot of office and work spaces built in the homes and some craft rooms. I wish I had seen more craft room spaces to be honest. The offices included in the homes I walked through and pictured below were usually one of the first rooms I looked at.
