2019 Goal Check-in: Reflect. Celebrate. Focus.

It’s hard to believe we are on month SIX in 2019. How did that happen? I feel like this year is flying by, but I think that’s how it always seems to go because time flies when you’re having fun, right?!  Between all of the roles we play as a parent, spouse, career-person, friend, volunteer, etc, we seem to always be busy and on-the-go! This post is a challenge for you to take time on a little reflection of how far you’ve come this year. Continue reading → 2019 Goal Check-in: Reflect. Celebrate. Focus.

Hiking is like Life.

I have always been the outdoorsy type, loved growing up on a farm & exploring  nature. A few years ago, my sister & her significant other introduced me to hiking while in Colorado & I’ve been hooked ever since. Recently, on a hike up Camelback Mountain in Arizona with my husband, Brandon, it made me think about how hiking is like life.

Create an Engaging Social Media Plan

When I ask clients about their biggest struggles when it comes to social media, the answer is often the same:

“It’s hard to come up with fresh content in social media.”

Being Intentional with Your Time

Everybody has the same 168 hours in a week – and those hours sure fill up fast, don’t they?! One of my focus areas in 2019 was to use my time more effectively, mainly because billable hours = my paycheck! As I have been more conscientious of my time, I have discovered some tips that work well for me and help improve my overall work & life flow. I currently work from home and have in previous portions of my career too, so some of the tips are ones I’ve implemented for years and others are relatively new. I thought they were worth sharing – hopefully you can take a few of the tips and reclaim some hours in your schedule too! Continue reading → Being Intentional with Your Time

Animal Symbols in Nature

I am a big believer in signs that help guide you in life. There are so many signs in nature and it’s probably why I love living on a farm because I get to experience that connection on a daily basis. Like whenever I see a cardinal outside our window, I always feel like that’s a visitor from Heaven, just checking in on us! It always brings a warmth to my heart. It’s been fun to share that thought with our kids and how expressive they get when a cardinal comes for a visit on the farm!

Lately, I have noticed a bald eagle that has been visiting our place and I just feel like he is a sign to me personally. We’ve seen him perched on trees in the grove, swooping up our lane, perched in the corn stalks and this weekend, he spent some time in our lawn (chewing on a dead animal that our dogs drug up – yuck)! But he fascinates me and I notice him a few times a week. So, naturally, I had to Google what it means to have an eagle visit and it’s was kind of neat to read about. Here are the main points I found: Continue reading → Animal Symbols in Nature
