    Chance vs. Choice

    As I’m writing this post, Ryan and I are in Vegas at the 10X Growth Conference.  This is a 3-day event and after just this first day, I’m feeling so pumped up.  I’ve learned such an insane amount in just one day from all the speakers.  It has given me a whole new outlook on how I’m viewing my future. I’m more motivated than ever to take charge of and responsibility for my own success. *photo can be found here Anyway, I was telling a friend about my first day and she very innocently said that she’s so glad I get the chance to do things like this.

The first time I ever saw a Patagonia was on one of Ryan’s friend’s girlfriend.  She looked so chic and put together even with just jeans and a simple pull-over and since then I’ve wanted one. However, I recently saw a couple of outfits put together using Patagonia pieces and my obsession was piqued.  So much so that I decided that I needed some Patagonia in my life.…

    An Uncertain Future and Facing New Challenges

    Hello there, friends. Today, I’m mellowing out a little bit and talking about uncertainty.  This is something I know we all deal with.  Personally, I feel like I’ve been dealing with uncertainty a lot lately. Ryan gets out of the Air Force in May and he’s looking for a new job, in a new state.  We’ve got a baby coming in August and we don’t know where we’ll be living yet.  The little boy that I interpret for just got moved to a new school.  Because of that, I’m in the midst of figuring out what I’m doing with work until my next assignment starts in March.  In general, there’s…
