Can't wait to read about What's up with all of YOU!


  1. Your book game is strong this month! Those are all such great reads!

  2. Love me some JT & Chris Stapleton!! And those tacos look amazing!

  3. Those tacos look amazing! I'm always down for good tacos haha. And I'm so jealous that you're in Cancun! I'm going to the Bahamas this fall for my Anniversary/hubby's graduation from Dental School. I can't wait to have a view like that and soak up the sun on a beach! Great post!

  4. I want to read alot of those books you have read.As for mothers day just like breakfast in bed and time with the family.This year I am surprising my mom with Hamilton tickets but we have to wait til August

  5. I’d love to see posts relating to your running and training. You’re so fast!

  6. Gosh Yosemite - that is up there on the list! I bet that was some trip! And your beach holiday looks like it will be amazing too! Luke looks very cute in his baseball gear / riot police outfit ;) Love your Cancun shot - oh the late 1990s - so much fun! I graduated from my under-grad the same year - miss those times - getting tanned and not worrying, having drinks and not worrying, sleeping too much, travelling all over..... You should post more throwback pics! Joanne x

  7. I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want..
