    Today, I want to focus on something I find very important  – kindness. It’s so simple, yet so powerful. I’ve talked about the importance of kindness plenty of times on my blog, but today, I want to focus on ways we can spread kindness.

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your summer and taking advantage of the summer weather. It’s almost August… and before we know it, it will be fall. I know, I know, it’s still July. But I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t excited for fall, the crisp leaves and the cool air. Don’t get me wrong – I still love summer just as much. Any Nicholas Sparks fans out there?! Well, I am a HUGE fan of his. Recently, I finished reading The Longest Ride, and boy did I loved it. Once I finished the book, I immediately wanted to read it again and again… and again. That’s one of…

The…

  • Nic Answers Questions About Me

    Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all having a great start to your day and enjoying the summer weather. Soak it in, ladies and gents… “halloween costume ideas” is already trending on Pinterest. About a year ago, I read a blog on Simply Nicole (one of my favorite bloggers) and she had her husband answer random questions about her. She wrote down what he said and added her own commentary. I thought it was such a fun idea, and decided (almost a year later) to do that with Nic. I found some questions online and used some of hers, and asked them to Nic and wrote down his answers and my…
