Giving the power to my Kids – what’s your BIG WHY?
If I knew then what I know now… something we’ve heard a million times for sure! But, I really think our kids can be given so much power. So much knowledge and confidence.

The energy flow!
Wow, I can not even explain the energy difference I feel being sober. I am accomplishing things I’ve had on my to do list for a long time and things I would brush under the rug.

Yesterday was a hard day topped with crazy dreams!
My 16 year old son got into a lot of trouble at the end of 2019. This lead to me increasing my drinking and to me smoking almost a pack a day of cigarettes (I was formerly a “social smoker).” We found him smoking pot and sneaking out at the beginning of his 10th gradeContinue reading “Yesterday was a hard day topped with crazy dreams!”
12 days and 7 pounds – it’s so much easier to lose weight
For years I tried to diet and lose weight while drinking wine. It was a struggle. A constant battle, to say the least. Now that I’m not drinking it so mush easier to control my food intake.
