Top 10 Sci-Fi TV Shows

Top Sci-Fi TV Shows By Lisa Hamm I have a love for all things Science Fiction.  Whether it be a good book, movie, tv show, board game, you name it – I am hooked.  When my sister said that I could guest blog for her sometime, I don’t think this was exactly the topic she had in mind, but it’s the first topic that came to my mind.  And once the gears started turning, I couldn’t stop.   I had my…

Tour the Home Office – Fall Style

Tour the Home Office – Fall Style

When I first started this blog back in July, one of the first things I did was give a tour of my home office. (It is actually still my most popular blog post!)

This past week on a family trip, the boys got some new stuffed animals from a local festival. Cute little dolphins. By the time we arrived back to the car, one dolphin already had a tear in it’s fin. The child with the torn dolphin asked if I could sew it.

The final days of summer vacation to savor with the…

What is a Virtual Assistant?

Work / life balance. It has almost become a dirty word. How do you give your family the time and attention they deserve, while also contributing financially? How do you fulfill the needs of those around you, while still engaging in creative outlets that inspire and motivate you on a personal level?

Taking the Time for Gratitude

Taking the Time for Gratitude

When I got my 2016 planner, it came with a gratitude journal. While I love the idea of journaling things I am grateful for, I have failed to get into the habit of sitting down and journaling on paper regularly. Since blogging is currently my preferred writing method of choice, I wanted to take a minute to stop and give thanks for some of my many blessings. “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in…

What I’ve Been Reading + A Reading Round Up

What I’ve Been Reading + A Reading Round Up

It has been a crazy week around our house. Between work, a couple of family day trips, and our senior dog having some health issues, I haven’t had a whole lot of time for reading. In fact, many nights include me picking up a book, reading the same sentence about three times, and then putting said book down and falling asleep. But I have managed to finish a couple books. So I wanted to share what’s on my nightstand with…
