Life: Creating a Vision Board

Every year we talk about our visions for the future, our goals and the things we would like to accomplish.  More often than not those things are lost in the daily shuffle and bustle and before you know it, the year has passed us by and we didn’t accomplish anywhere close to what we had…

Marriage: Trust (Fundamentals Series)

Trust is reliability, it is dependability and a feeling of being safe and secure.  Trusting your partner adds a sense of warmth and comfort to your relationship that would otherwise not be present.  Trust is being vulnerable with the understanding that your partner would never do anything to hurt you.  Trust is the basis of…

Infertility: Decisions, Decisions…

This year began full steam ahead and has continued with the same momentum.  If anything, I think time is progressing even quicker.  I mean it’s already March!  Can you believe it?  Anyway, time isn’t stopping and this year is going to fly by with or without us, so it was time to make some decisions…

Travel: Planning for 2019

We had concluded at the start of the year that we would go on only one or two trips in 2019.  We figured they would be somewhat bigger in budget so we decided to limit ourselves to that.  One thing we knew for sure was that we wanted to go to Hawaii again!  Our second…

Infertility: Real and Raw

Cooking: Cuban Sandwich Quesadillas

I had been craving a Cuban Sandwich for some time but obviously it was not an option being on the Keto diet.  My saving grace has been low carb tortillas in place of bread.  You can make essentially anything into a quesadilla, especially sandwiches.  So I went for it.  Luckily during our last Costco trip…

Weight Loss: Progress Makes Perfect Pt. 3

I was hoping that the next post I wrote would be the finish line post, meaning we both hit our individual goal weights.  Needless to say, that is not what this is and it is taking us a little longer than we had hoped to reach those goals. I am now down a total of…

Travel: Vegas Baby!

Vegas has to be one of our favorite destinations, we literally travel there at least twice a year.  We love it so much we even consider it our second home and somewhere we could see ourselves settling at some point in time.  This time in particular though, I came for work.  Jon joined me on…

Marriage: Mutual Respect (Fundamentals Series)

In researching mutual respect, I came across this somewhat profound explanation, from of all places, urbandictionary.com: Consequently, our respecting someone comes down to a judgment we make, and like any judgment, it’s a choice. In order to make a prudent choice, we weigh the observed evidence and do our best to screen out our own prejudice in…
