January 2020 Challenge Reveal

Good day to all of you beautiful humans! And a happy new year! I've had my fair share of internal conflicts & real struggles throughout this year, especially the past few weeks. But those are just opportunities to learn and grow as an individual. 2019 has been an...

The Texas Ranch

I grew up in the desert - Utah. When I think back on my childhood/teenage years, I really appreciated being in Utah's little bubble. Although I have been naive and innocent, I believe that really made me feel comfortable in where I was living and - for the most part -...

October Challenge Reveal

This challenge hits home right now. Mykle and I have lived a very comfortable life. We are very good with our money/savings and plan for our future. Mykle is more of a saver, and he has taught me that spending all I earn isn't always that fun. Saving money can...

The End is Near

For September my husband and I both wanted to do a health challenge. We weren't feeling great about ourselves because we hadn't worked out in forever and we ate junk food all the time. It was definitely time for a change. For awhile we did really well - especially my...
