5 Tips to Avoid Mental Burnout

As women, we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. From the time we’re little girls, a doll is placed into our hands. From that moment on, we become caretakers.

Mental, physical and emotional burnout! Have you ever been in burnout mode? I...

Achieve new year’s resolutions in the 4 months (or less) you have left

If I’m honest, I’ve kinda grown numb to New Year’s Resolutions. I get excited. I do for a bit. Then I go back to regularly scheduled programming.

One night while my husband and I were still dating, we were doing that annoying thing where you ask each other all these getting to know you questions. Me being the analytical person that I am, I found this list of 100 questions that you should ask you partner, and we just partnered off down the list answering questions and learning about each others quirks and tendencies.   I love to talk and am really...
