My husband and I got married about two and a half years ago, which I guess hardly makes me an expert on marriage advice, we have however been together for almost 11 years. We started dating when I was 15 and he moved in to my parents house when I was 16. When we were 20 we got our first place together and got married at 24. People often ask me “what married life is like” and my response is always the same: “the same as it was before”.

I print off my sheets and add them to my life binder and i’m good to go.

So many people have the New Year’s resolution to lose weight, to be healthier, to exercise more, but how many actually stick to it after a week or a month? not many. One way to stick to a resolution is to follow the SMART steps and also by making it a routine which is only a 2 step process.. Plan it & schedule it. After about a month it will become not only routine but habit and if you miss a day you will feel it. Continue reading
It’s Sunday again, which means “Self-Care Day”! Not only is it Sunday it is also Christmas which is a very busy day of the year, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to do a post on self care through the holidays

I am from quite a large family which means quite a few Christmas festivities. We essentially have 3 Christmases every year at minimum; one at my paternal grandfathers, one at my parent’s house and one at my house. So while I’m trying to juggle where I have to be when I also have to plan my own Christmas.
When you first open up your life binder it is best to begin with an annual schedule (birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, showers, due dates, holidays etc.) so when you need to do your quarterly shopping (post about that next Wednesday) you know what events you have coming up.
