Living My Best Life

It's 9 days into 2018, and I can honestly say that I am living my best life.

Here We Go!

Welcome, 2018! I know, I know, I'm a few days late with this post (what else is new). In all fairness, this transition into 2018 has been BUSY.

Hurricanes and Life

Hey, friends!  It's been a good while since I've updated, and for good reason. Irma happened. She came, she saw, she conquered, and even though we didn't see her eye like predicted, we are still reeling in the aftermath.  Our area is still about half without power, and residents are trickling back in after evacuating.… Continue reading Hurricanes and Life

Another Week Gone

Well, it's been another week(+) here in the Reynolds House, and here we are on Labor Day, preparing to start the 3rd week of school tomorrow. This last week was interesting, to say the least.

So, to briefly recap, since pictures are each worth 1,000 words (although if you follow me on Instagram, some of these are old… Continue reading Summer is almost gone!
