Today is my 15th anniversary with my husband.  That’s right, 15 years ago since this dude started talking to me about bands in a pool and held my hand while watching Finding Nemo.  I have known him exactly half of my life.  Since the day I met him his has encouraged me to follow my passions and inspired me to push myself to become a better person.  To celebrate the past 15 years, I wanted to share 15 pictures from our relationship.  Ready?  Let’s go!

The first time I hiked to The Crack, I was playing hooky from work.  Or, taking a mental health day as it is called now.  I told my husband on the next day off he had during the week, I was going to call into work and we were going hiking.  I didn’t care where, […]

I am a bit of a nerd about stars.  I took astronomy for my science classes in college, so of course, I think I am a bit of an expert.  Or at least, I can share some wisdom with my friends while we are out camping.  And some of my favorite quotes have to do with stars.  “I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars make me dream.” – Vincent Van Gogh and “Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground” – Teddy Roosevelt.  Oh, and then that Coldplay song, “Look at the stars, look how they shine for you.”  And we cannot forget Neverland, “Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning.” I digress.  My point is that I have this thing for stars.

My husband and I skipped our December Disneyland trip so that I could quit my full time job.  Every month that went by, we wanted to go to Disney more and more.  We normally go out with a 3 day pass and stay at the Disneyland Hotel.  Character dining, the Blue Bayou, all of it.  But that was definitely not in the cards being newly self employed.  So, I started to do some research to see how cheaply we could go to Disneyland.  Old school style, like when we were in our 20s and still living with our parents.

Josh and I used to take annual camping trips up to the Rim every monsoon season.  We have not been able to make it up to the Rim the past few years because I was using all my PTO time to photograph weddings and other business related ventures.  Since I left my other job in December, I had a list of things I had been missing out on that I wanted to do.  One of them, was camping on the rim.

As many of you know, I quit my job at the end of last year.  My personal life and health had been thrown through the ringer last year working essentially two full time jobs.  But this is my year to fix all that.  So here are my personal goals for 2018.

If you have not checked out my blog post about my goals from 2017, go do that now!  It explains how I found my goals being completed by the end of the year because I put them into the universe and let my heart be open to different ways of them being accomplished.  So, in the spirit of reaching goals, I am putting my 2018 goals out there for the world to see!  Here are my top business goals for 2018.

I had some lose goals for 2017 but nothing concrete.  Then I wrote them down on a chalkboard and hung it in my office.  You know what happened?  I reached almost all of my goals without realizing it!  I found this so powerful that I wanted to share my goals and how they were achieved.  (Because, honestly, it was not in the way I originally planned!)  I will also be sharing my 2018 goals on my blog.  Because if you put it out there, it will happen!

My husband and I love the Christmas season.  After we eat Thanksgiving dinner, we start the season by going out to the stores to buy Christmas presents on Black Friday.  After a full night of shopping, we take a 4 hour nap before decorating the Christmas tree.  Our house is decorated with the 6 bins of decorations by the end of the weekend.  While we are decorating the tree, we start our binge watching of Christmas movies!  We watch so many Christmas movies over the season, but here are our top 12 favorites:

This Thanksgiving I wanted to pop in and say what I am Thankful for this year!  So lets jump into it so I can jump into a plate of food!
