Fighting anxiety with thankfulness


I don’t really know how to describe the past 24 hours. It has been a whirlwind as the unexpected was dropped in our laps. We don’t go on extravagant vacations, but we do make the most of our trips that have been related to work travel, short weekend stays, and occasionally a trip in an RV. Joshua had a short…

Going through the big “D” and I don’t mean Dallas… Downsizing!


I have a hard time getting rid of stuff. I wouldn’t call myself a hoarder… but my husband might call me that.  Oh come on, I’m not that bad, I don’t think. (Insert Denial). So when the “D” word came up, it was hard.  Yes, we have downsized. It sounded great in theory. Lets streamline, make things easier for ourselves.…
