There is no place like home - L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz

Growing up an Army brat and moving ever 2-4 years, I never had a "home" until my dad's retirement, even then nothing felt quite like home. I always wanted something else. It wasn't until after I was married that my husband and I moved to live in a small town on a wooded 5 acres that I felt at home.
🏡
I love the serenity, listening to the wind blowing through the trees, seeing the night sky, having a wrap around porch and the sounds of wildlife in our area. Of course, as a horror fan, I do creep myself out sometimes when I have to go out at night or when the dogs bark uncontrollably for no reason. And yes Johann @jobis89, we own an axe. 😱

#summeroffright - house, Dorothy's house landed on the Wicked Witch
#beyondthepagesjuly - book crush. The Tin Man was always my favorite. I learned so much about the characters by reading the books. Tin Man made the ultimate sacrifice of life for love which is why he wanted a heart. ❤ How could he not be your favorite?

The past 2 months have brought so much change in my life! In May I finally graduated from college with my Dental Hygiene Degree! 😷 👩🏼‍🎓 Graduating was a HUGE accomplishment for me & I was so excited to be done ✅ , but ever since then I felt a little lost about how to define myself! I’d been a student for the past 3 years and it all came to an end so fast! Change can be so hard & scary 😧 & bring about a lot of self doubt, but I’m quickly relearning that doing scary & hard things only make me stronger 💪🏼 I’m excited for the future & starting a new journey to creating a better me!!

Laugh a real laugh, smile a genuine smile. Be true, be real. BE YOU 🍍

When you can't help but laugh🤣 because you burn so bad from your new favorite workout, and literally have nothing left in the tank! Day 2 and I haven't been this sore since I began this journey 3 years ago! 💪
.
.
But it's a good sore. It's the sore I crave even though I'm cussing like a sailor 🙊 through it because I just want it to end!!
.
.
Having Mike there to encourage me the entire time. To struggle 😜 through the workout just as much as I do and to push one another is all I've hoped for since I started this lifestyle change years back. .
.
Hes eating right, with me.🥒🥦🥗 He's learning to cook the things that FUEL🔥 our bodies rather than weigh them down. He is literally my 💪 when I get home and just want to crash. He keeps me going. .
.
I never thought in a million years he would be beside me rather than just supporting my choices. I am so incredibly blessed to have a partner, my best friend, my husband in this with me every single day. ❤🧡💛💙💚💜

...because sometimes a mid-week date night makes everything all better♡

These two love their poppa and we all love the sweet corn grown on the farm.
I am so thankful for this life my kids get to live and experience.

If you would have told me 6 months ago I would one day have abs I would have told you that you were crazy.

I used to say that I am not built to have abs.
I still can’t believe that I currently have baby abs (abs still in progress)

Did you know that you could do it too. Believe in yourself, dedicate yourself and love yourself and it can happen.
