Yes, I’m aware at how dramatic that sounds. While I would never change anything about going through the process, I learned quite a lot. And it has honestly taken me just over a year to really see all of the different areas this process impacted my life. Getting a doctoral degree is traumatic to your […]

One of my goals this year is to read 42 books. It is a lofty goal, but after meeting my goal of 36 books last year, I knew I could do it. How do I do it, you ask? Well, apparently I became one of those people who reads multiple books at a time. A […]

Let me tell you.  This has been the MOST STRESSFUL 3 months of our lives. Most of you may know (or all of you) that my husband and I decided to sell our house.  We put our house on the market at the end of July.  In the short amount of time that we were […]
