Mind Over Matter!

Mind over matter!  I find myself clinging to that mantra a lot as a FireWife.  Especially with the history my firefighter husband and I endured.  The past can never truly be buried deep enough.  It always seems to nudge it's way through my thoughts as I go about my...

Finding Your Balance

We have a million things to get done just like the average wife. Unlike the average wife, we don’t always have our spouse around to help take care of the giant to-do list. Take a little time each day and put some work into you.
