Here we are, one third of the way to our goal. This week is about amping up our awareness levels again. I know on Week 2 ~Making a Comfort List~ there were some comments about it being a little harder than our Week 1 ~Gratitude List... I think partly that was because as women, we tend to put everyone else's needs in front of our own.

Opened the windows (yes, I live in … [Read more...] about twenty twelve
I once heard someone say "don't worry about keeping up with the Jones', they're broke and unhappy!" Isn't that the truth! We try so hard to live up to what others are doing and yet we come to find out, they're not doing so great. (Apologies to all of my friends whose last names end in Jones :) you know it's just a saying). It seems like as parents it is our job to hide any stress we can from our … [Read more...] about Change starts here.
