Minimalism – Not a new trend, but a lifestyle change

I was introduced to the concept of minimalism by watching the fantastic documentary Minimalism: A Documentary About the Important Things on Netflix by Ryan Nicodemus and Joshua Millburn. If you haven’t had the opportunity to watch it, I highly recommend you do. Take a moment and look around you. Within 10 feet of you in…

Weight Loss – Struggles and Lifestyle Changes

The first adventure I’m wanting to document (as it will be an ongoing process) is the weight loss journey that my wife and I are currently on. Now, I know a lot of people deal with this on a daily basis, and this may seem redundant to some, but I want to share our experiences….

“Collect Moments, Not Things”

I’m not going to do the normal spiel about how long it’s been since the last post, I’ll get better about it, blah blah blah. Life has been busy lately. I just haven’t had the time to sit down and write. The older I’m getting, the more I am beginning to prioritize my life for…

Umm… Change of Heart

For anyone who read my most recent blog post, just completely forget about it. I’m good. My life is good. My life is waaaay good. This is not sarcasm, this is me realizing what I wasn’t missing. 😳 K~

Let’s Talk About Something Serious

I know I’ve been away for a long while, and this time it’s been for good reason. Life has been a mess lately. The world is not crumbling around me, but I am falling apart while the world keeps moving. Or I was. Or, I don’t even know which word to use. Anymore it seems…

Guide to Living a Less Stressful Life

Life is tough. Being an adult is difficult, and being a responsible adult is even harder. At times. It’s enough to make you long for the days of innocence and carefree worries – the life of a child. Or a cat. The anxiety has been getting the better of me lately to the point where…

Becoming a Spartan!

So apparently I’m a liar and I’m terrible at the updates. Once a week? I’m trying, life has just been very busy. But onward and upward. I want to do a quick recap of one of the most challenging things I’ve ever endured, and one of my, personally, most proud moments – the completion of…

We’re Back! Looking Ahead (TRAVEL!)

It has officially been over a month since my last post. Considering this blog was supposed to be updated weekly, that’s no good! The reason for the absence was simply the holidays. The fall semester was over “all A’s, phew”, the kids were on their winter break, and work has been insanely busy. So I’m…

Family holidays

Thanksgiving has officially passed and Christmas is just around the corner. As the year is coming to a close I have asked my family to come together and reflect on their blessings for 2016. It’s an opportunity to look back on the year and see how we have gotten to the point we are at…

A decade past

For starters, again I will apologize for my lack of attentiveness to this blog. While I would love to say life is a roller coaster that only goes up, we all know that’s not true. Life has been going all sorts of directions lately. But I’m not here to talk about that today. Today I’m…

Remember, remember!

    Remember, remember!      The fifth of November,      The Gunpowder treason and plot;      I know of no reason      Why the Gunpowder treason      Should ever be forgot!      Guy Fawkes and his companions      Did the scheme contrive,      To blow the King…
