2017 Resolutions

I’m a couple days late posting this. I originally had a post completed sharing my resolutions for personal, physical, and work related areas of life. One resolution I vowed to make was to “workout more” or “get pre-baby (if not earlier) body back”. Another resolution I explained was to “find an organization to volunteer at and give back to my community more”. I also had down to “better maintain my house and stay on top of laundry”. Basically all of my resolutions revolved around the theme “BE BETTER” at what I do day to day.  Be a better version of what I already am; a better mother, a better wife, a better Real Estate agent and a better friend.

Which was always… because it was Friday! They wanted to be there probably even less than we did.

Regardless, it was Friday and I didn’t care! 4:59pm and I was in my car peeling out of the parking lot. I had plans. I had every minute of my 2 full days scheduled, with appropriate travel time between events, full appetizers and meals already baking in my head and if I was lucky, all of my outfits meticulously planned out for each function. JOY was the only feeling I had during my commute home.

Here we go!

Christmas morning, the first day of school, the smell of a new book or the belly laugh of a baby…

Wrap them all together and that starts to explain how excited I am to share with you this unreal journey I am so lucky to be experiencing. In this small space I hope to share with you the world from my vantage point. I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, sister and friend. Learning to be better at them all as I go.

Professionally I am a licensed Realtor with a passion for home decor, an immense appreciation for stunning architecture, and lover of a true bargain!

This is my life. Unfiltered and REAL

Thank you for taking this journey with me… ready…set…go!
