How to Downsize your Home when Planning to Move

How to Downsize your Home when Planning to Move

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Moving is hard, I get that.  This word can cause someone to experience feelings of dread and anxiety. I’m certainly one of those people and am staring down our upcoming move with my fair share of worry. Several years ago, we upgraded our home and moved into a very large, luxurious house. We quickly filled the house with more furniture and all kinds of stuff after we had our baby. Now, we’re tasked with going in the opposite direction and trying […]

How to stay Productive when Working From Home

How to stay Productive when Working From Home

Working from home is a one-day goal of mine. I know I’m not alone in that. Working from home gives us the opportunity to find that delicate work-life balance. If you’re like me, we’re searching to learn how to be more focused on our work so we can spend more time with our family. I work full-time in the corporate world. One day I wish to transition into a more part-time schedule, perhaps with some of that time working from home. I’m allowed a few work from home days, usually with special permission if someone is sick (myself or the toddler) […]

Amazing Meal Planning Services to make Meal Time Simpler

Amazing Meal Planning Services to make Meal Time Simpler

Being a working mom means we probably don’t have time to cook a brand new beautiful meal from scratch every day. But you know what? That’s fine! That’s not where my passions lie, or my skills for that matter! It is more important for me to come up with a simple plan for meals so I can focus on what really matters – the time spent with my family (not the time spent slaving over grocery shopping and cooking). I’m all about using the tools and services provided by others that make my life easier. Life is complicated enough, and […]

Side Hustle Series: Become a Wine Guide with Traveling Vineyard

Side Hustle Series: Become a Wine Guide with Traveling Vineyard

Thanks to Traveling Vineyard® for sponsoring this conversation. I’m a mom of a toddler, so I am beginning to understand why so many moms love wine. Seriously, though, there are a ton of different types of wine ranging in colors and flavors and appearance. Unless you’re already an expert and have sampled a wide array of options, you might not yet know what you like. I know I have a preference for sweet wines, and I have to stay away from reds due to getting headaches, but there is so much more to wine than that. The side-hustle I am sharing with […]
