2017: How I’m doing on my goals 6 months in- and plans for the second half of the year!

So I am definitely in that weird time flux of having a baby again and feeling like everything is going so fast and so slow all at once. On the one hand I can’t believe how much has happened in the last six months. It feels like much more time should have passed for all this to be possible. On the other I feel like it has been a complete whirlwind and I’m going to blink and it will be December. I’m guessing at least some of you feel the same!

Cultivate: The Book I’ve been SO EXCITED to share…

Cultivate: A Grace-Filled Guide to Growing an Intentional Life launched this week! I have had the pleasure of being part of the Cultivate Book Launch Team.

SO… for this post, I thought I’d flip this year’s theme of dating on its head and instead of talking about a lovely date I went on with my husband, I thought I’d share some dating horror stories from the days before I met him. (Honey, if you are reading this you may be amused but you may just prefer to skip this post… water under the whatever and whatnot…) The rest of you- brace yourselves for some of my most awkward/embarassing/frustrating moments.
