Goal Planning for 2019

January 10, 2019

2018 was not the year I had expected. I thought it would be quiet and not very much going on. Boy was I wrong! We decided around March that we would be starting our second adoption.

Excited because I’m so proud of my freaking two year old for wanting to potty train ( I know there are kids that start younger then that but I was preparing to potty train her at 4 years old ha!) and nervous because every child is different and I don’t want anyone to take my advice as “gospel”.…

Running With A Baby

September 24, 2018

So, I have to start out by saying running with a stroller/baby is not easy. It’s not crazy hard but it’s definitely a step up from running solo.
