This week I had an opportunity to attend the Disney Social Media Moms tour when it came to Atlanta.  Aside from being one of the most fantastic and informative conferences I’ve been to dealing with Social Media, it was also a game changer.  I had an opportunity to have serious conversations with fellow bloggers from some amazing Mom/Kid/Family-focused sites (The Crunchy Mommy, Baby Shopaholic,  & Hustle or Hyde). There were many more fabulous women in the room but between the talk from Kim Fields and the conversation with Trina at Baby Shopaholic,

Last school year the kids and I had an opportunity to attend a couple of the shows in the Artsbridge Foundation educational series.  As a homeschool mom with two children that love music and movement, this was a perfect fit for our family.  I’ll admit in the beginning I wasn’t sure if Marshall would enjoy this, seeing as how he is in highschool.  To my surprise, he loved it more than his sister.

On Sunday, September 3, 2017, my best-friend and little sister got engaged to her beau.  We couldn’t be more excited for them as they move into the next phase of their lives.  I remember going to her house after my husband proposed to me almost three years ago.  She shared in the entire process from the day we got engaged to my wedding day and beyond.  Of all the people in my bridal party, she’s the only one I still talk to on a consistent basis.

When I woke up yesterday morning my bank’s account (all them) were looking a little thin, by 10 am one of them was in the red.  By 1 pm all of them were positive and I no longer worried if we had enough.  But at 11 am I had received some news from the doctor that was less than favorable.  Dr. E told me I had lost weight since my last visit two months ago.

The day I stopped my friends and family discount……

As I sat down to pen this blog I had to figure out who was my target audience for this post?  I decided against this being towards the people or situations that sparked this thought and decided this post is best geared towards the new entrepreneur.

When I first started my business(es) I worked within my network.  I told almost everybody I knew I was now in business for myself.

Broccoli and Cauliflower Mac N Cheese is a fantastic way to incorporate some veggies into your picky eater’s diet.  My kids are not fans of cauliflower at all.  However, I’ve found two dishes that seem to work well with them and I just don’t tell them they are eating it!

Our journey to a healthier lifestyle has had some set backs and most start in the kitchen.  When we plan out our meals for the week we do a much better job.

Is your marriage really a ministry?

When I started my business I knew it was divinely ordered by God.  Adonai Desserts Atlanta has led me to some amazing people.  I met my husband after he placed an order for some red velvet cupcakes.  Over the last five years, I have been impacted by countless women who have poured into my life via this business.  Well, it’s happened again.  I was working with a client on her 50th wedding anniversary cake.

Three days ago I took my kids on a field trip to the chiropractor.

A few week’s ago I started seeing a chiropractor for issues with my lower back.  This wasn’t a new issue for me.  Five years ago when I was in culinary school I had a seriously bad sciatica flare up that caused me so much pain I was ordered to stay off my feet and to sleep in a chair in for 6 months.

This week’s focus has been on scrambling to find new homeschool resources and programs and resources that fit my families needs.  I’ve never been a fan of “School at Home” and I recently had a lapse in judgment and decided to try online schooling.  While this particular type of schooling doesn’t sit well with my family, it may work for yours, especially if it’s your first year and you simply want your children to do school work at home.
