I was sure that I’d make the nice list this year, but my T-mobile quiz results said otherwise. I think it was the fact that I said if my boss called me on my day off I’d send the call straight to voice mail… but I’m the boss so I can do that 😉 I’ll just pretend I’m on the nice list so I can get my Christmas wishes this year. I also said .
Usually when 5 O’clock rolls around I cringe and start rampaging through the cupboards wondering what we’ll be eating for dinner. Its not that I don’t like to cook, it’s that I truly don’t have a lot of time to prepare, shop for, and plan out meals. That’s the part that I dread. One out of the four of us is also pretty picky, so I am limited with what our meal options are. .
Can you spot me? Our second day here was FULL of hiking. We hiked Tunnel Mountain which overlooks all of Banff. After that we took the Banff Gondola up to Sulpher Mountain, and then during sunset we walked around Vermillion Lakes. I’ve never been to a place that has to many beautiful areas all so close to each other. During our hike Zoe was clanking two rocks together for a very long time. .
A few months ago I was looking up the best small towns in America to experience fall. Every October when the kids get a break from school, we trek somewhere to feel the cooler weather, see changing leaves, and get out of the never ending Phoenix summer. After this weird chain of discovering the cutest towns I’ve ever seen, I found Banff, Canada. WHY in all my years of life had I never .
A couple of weeks ago, I took my kids to their first ever concert performance at the Mesa Arts Center. Walking into the theatre was a special experience with them that I’ll never forget. My kids were wide eyed the whole concert. Both of them dressed up real fancy and Zoe was glued to the violins. I thought that they’d for sure fall asleep by the end since it was at night, but they .
We’re going to start a new segment on here where we interview Zoe and Shiloh about different random topics. They are the silliest kids with so much personality, and I want you to be able to get to know them a little better because they just add HAPPINESS to life. To start this out, we asked them some basic questions about what I do for work, and about life. Enjoy! Zoe: “If you .
Something that we try to instill in our kids is a sense of adventure, and trying new things. Mike and I love exploring new places and being able to bring Zoe and Shiloh along just makes things a lot more fun. We’re both from Arizona but have never been to Tonto Natural Bridge, so we decided to make a day trip of it yesterday. It was so much fun, but I’ll stop typing so .
Photos by Eunice Beck Creating, running, and growing The Shine Project the last 3.5 years has been one of the greatest blessings I’ve ever had. It has also been a top source of stress, individual growth, sleepless nights and long days. Sometimes people will have a business idea, create a business plan and seek investors… but that is not how it worked for me. The Shine Project has organically grown and morphed into what .
