1.) Leave a love letter for your lover
Whether it’s on the bed, or on the fridge, or even by the kitchen sink or in the car, leave your spouse a letter reminding them that you love them. Tell them why you appreciate them and wish them a good day.

“Your marriage is going to fail”

“You’re going to be a completely different person by 25”

“You’re just a child, honey”

“You’ll fall out of love”

These were just a few of the terrifying and mean things that I was told before I got married. My husband and I got married when I was barely 19 and he was 22. I felt like almost no one was supportive of us getting married young, except for my parents of course.

I was SO excited when my husband and I were moving into our first apartment together. It was going to be my first apartment and there were all these nitpick things I wanted to come with it.

The Best Homemade Meatballs!


My husband absolutely loves it when I make my homemade meatballs. It’s definitely one of those comfort foods that just make you feel better after a long day of work. Also, they taste a thousand times better than those bagged/frozen ones ;). After some experimenting, and a bit mashing up recipes, I found the perfect one to fit my little family. And ALL my friends love it.

Pay Off Debt!


Everyone seems to always talk about paying off debt… AFTER they’ve paid it off. But they never talk about it during the process of paying it off. They want you to know how successful they’ve been and blah blah blah and how you can do it too!

Well, I’m going to tell you about debt WHILE I’m actually paying it off.

First of all, the struggle can be, and IS real. There are so many times that I just want to give up and say screw it! It’s not really like Dave Ramsey says. That whole once you build momentum there’s no stopping you or whatever it is he says is bull crap. There’s a lot of things that can stop you along the way. I don’t know if I’m just a normal human being or what, but sometimes things happen. Like a car breaks down. Or you need to take an emergency flight.
