what I will be leaving at home on our next trip to Disney World

what I will be leaving at home on our next trip to Disney World

On my last trip with my mom in October 2018, I learned a lot about what not to bring to Disney World. I hadn’t been since I was a senior in high school (around 6 years prior) and a lot had changed both about me and about Disney World itself. So, I packed a lot of things that just didn’t get used! Today, I wanted to share what I will not be packing again. We’re planning to fly in December…

my ideal daily routine (and how to stick to your own)

I am not big on mornings, but I am big on routines. So, I do have a general daily routine that I like to stick with, even though what happens between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. for my day job can totally run the gamut. I’m going to share my ideal daily routine (meaning the way my day goes when everything goes according to plan) and also a few tips for setting and sticking to your own….

how to get more digitally organized

how to get more digitally organized

I am incredibly guilty of hoarding physical objects – books, clothing I don’t wear, magazines I never read, dog treats, etc. – but I am just as bad if not worse when it comes to my electronic life, except there’s even more of it. Digital organization is crucial for me!  Electronic clutter is just as stressful as physical clutter, not to mention just as exhausting when you try to sort through all of it to find what you’re looking for. Because…

my favorite places to eat in Disney World

my favorite places to eat in Disney World

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links, and I may make a small commission when you click or make a purchase. When my mom and I are planning our next trip to Disney World, we spend more time on eating than on anything else. With so many Disney World restaurants to choose from, where do I eat? That’s a controversial topic, for sure, but I will share my opinions and want to hear yours in the comments, too! Most importantly: I don’t think there are any awful places to eat. There are places I avoid because it’s not my…

my 2019 resolutions

I don’t put too much stock into setting specific resolutions anymore, because I think that sets you up for failure, especially if you try to jump into achieving EVERYTHING at once.

Meaning I want to live well, eat well, feel well – and just get closer to optimal wellness,…
