Adulting 101: Debunking Life Insurance Misconceptions

June 18, 2019

This post was sponsored by COUNTRY Financial and contains information provided by COUNTRY Financial. All opinions are mine. Fun fact: I got licensed in the state of Georgia as a Health and Life Insurance Agent many years ago to complement a job I had in employee benefits. I learned SO much in the class I took before I became licensed. It was around that time that I truly began to understand the importance of life insurance and why it shouldn’t…

How Do I Do It All? Spoiler: I Don’t.

June 17, 2019

This post is sponsored by Merry Maids. However, all opinions are mine. All working moms are no stranger to the question “How do you do it all?” Personally, I am a huge proponent of NOT trying to do it all if you can help it. While I know this is a privilege, hiring help was a game changer for me. As an entrepreneur, time is money and I have trouble just stopping to relax or spend quality time with my…

June 5, 2019

My hormones fluctuated…

33 Lessons I Learned By 33

June 1, 2019

I always landed on my feet, but the rug was certainly pulled out from under them more than a few times. My thirties have been a meandering journey into greater self-assurance, stability, and introspection.…

May 30, 2019

This post was sponsored by Walgreens, all opinions are mine. By now, surely all of you know that I’m on daily medication for mood disorders. Namely, generalized anxiety disorder (primary) and major depressive episodes (secondary).

This was a life changing moment for me, as the foggy lens I had been seeing the world through completely cleared.…

The Six Elements Of A Perfect Cheese Board

May 29, 2019

This post is sponsored by Cracker Barrel Cheese. All opinions are mine. If I learned anything while living in Napa, it’s that a good cheese board is a necessity to any and all gatherings. Charcuterie boards are so perfect for having guests over and are appropriate for everything from football games to fancier celebrations. To be honest, I am more of a “snacker”, so even as a family, we have cheese boards for dinner more often than I care to…
