Now I Journal...

I have always wanted to journal, and with my obsession with office supplies, it's the perfect hobby.

However, past Alice didn't know the things present Alice does. 
We all have a purpose on this planet. By figuring out who we are here to serve at this moment, right now, we can change the world.

Keeping Promises to Yourself is Vital to being Successful

Keeping Promises to Yourself is Vital to being Successful
This weekend was a true test of my commitment to the promises I make to myself. I am usually the first person I am okay with disappointing, but I am changing that story. I am keeping my promises to myself. If I can't keep them for myself, how will I ever be consistent with others?

It's done! We are FINALLY Unpacked! 12 Acre Wonderland Home Tour

It's done! We are FINALLY Unpacked! 12 Acre Wonderland Home Tour
If you have followed me for a long time, you may have seen this pallet console table in our old apartment. Andy custom built it for our hallway, because we had NO storage, and barely a closet for our utility room. This table made the PERFECT entry table in our new home! Right now it is full of tools that need to charge, but one day it will be minimal and home of all of the gear we need when we leave the house. For now, it's dual purpose will suffice.

Spring has sprung, Spring Cleaning has just begun

Lettuce plant our garden beds

Lettuce plant our garden beds
I enjoy a good pun every now and then, and lettuce is exactly what we planted this week, so I had to roll with it. There is so much to do around our property, I was starting to feel like we wouldn't be ready for Spring, and we would end up pushing off our garden goals even further.

America's Frontline Doctors and a look at censorship

I understand that freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom of consequences. But what happened to our freedom of speech? Every major social media platform has spent the day scrubbing this video from its sites. Squarespace has shut down its website. How is someone supposed to do the research on a group if they can’t even access their website to see what the group stands for, in their own words?


There are so many evils available for us to find on the internet, and that’s without even looking for it. (How’s that Wayfair stuff going?) 


Why is it that medical doctors talking about what they are seeing work so wrong?

Learning Life Lessons From a Netflix Show...

What a moment. 


I feel like we have all been in a moment like this in our lives. It feels like the whole world is falling in around us, like we have all lost control. Her first no was this dress. She was ready to give up. I have wanted to give up so many times. The amount of no’s, or not right now’s, or I’ll just use this other cheaper (possibly risky) product, etc. continues to grow. 


Sometimes, it seems like no matter what, you just aren’t reaching the people you want to reach. Sometimes, you feel like you are talking to a wall. Sophia recovers, and she takes the world by storm.

A Second Shift Homestead

A Second Shift Homestead
Not everyone has a 9-5 job. Many businesses operate 24 hours a day and require employees to work all shifts to keep their production line moving. 

This is our reality. 

When we first moved to South Carolina, Andy was hired for 1st Shift. He wasn't told about the possibility of shift change 6 months later... And he was changed... to 2nd Shift.
