how to work from home effectively

As of this post, I have been working from home for almost three years. I’d be lying if I said it’s always been easy. In fact, it used to be really really challenging. (Sometimes it still is challenging but isn’t anything good?) I get lots of questions about how I work from home + stay focused when there are so many distractions all around me. Because of this, I decided to put together a few of the “rules” I have made for myself to make work time more effective.

sooo…did you beat cancer or what?

Soooo…did you beat cancer or what?

This is the question I’ve been asked in various ways approximately 10928470529835 times in the past few months. I haven’t really sat down to give an update because honestly, I just wasn’t ready to. Cancer has consumed just about every aspect of our lives for the past 1.5 years + I just didn’t even know when I would be ready to talk about it. I still don’t feel fully ready to talk about it. But I realize that people are only asking because they care + the hundreds of people who have so faithfully prayed for us deserve an update….so here it is…

my favorite things : summer 2018

random thoughts of a cancer wife

It’s been awhile since I wrote about anything. To be honest, most days I only have time to write a few sentences on Instagram. Working from a hospital room is hard, and the internet is bad, and everything seems to take 10x as long as it should. This past month has been weird, and hard, and stretching, and uncomfortable, and strangely sweet. Sometimes when I have random thoughts I write them down so that I can come back to them. This is a compilation of all those things.

easiest baked oatmeal ever

I love a good recipe!  But the thing I hate most is finding an excellent recipe and then realizing that it takes way too many steps or ingredients. I wasn’t a fan of baked oatmeal growing up, but I gave it another shot.  The recipe I used was good, but not perfect so I made a few adjustments to make it perfect.  This baked oatmeal takes literally 5 minutes to mix up and is ready in less than an hour.  (Plus, if you plan right, you only need to get 3 or 4 dishes dirty!)

my maskcara “why”

I thought it was time to share my Maskcara “Why”.
Why I became a Maskcara artist and how I’ve seen God work through something as simple as joining a direct sales company. (PS. I hate that term.)
