If you work in an office setting or if a future job opportunity will require you to work in an office setting, chances are that you'll have to set an out of office email reply during your career. Spending time outside the office and having a good work-life balance is so important. Disconnecting from your workplace and taking a few days to yourself to relax can help you come back to the office feeling refreshed and ready to tackle your next big project. Just because you step away from the office for a few days doesn't mean that the world will stop and the company you work for will be put on hold. Business will continue as usual and you'll be responsible for catching up on any work that you missed while you were away.Read More
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that my husband and I got married last summer and we spent our honeymoon in St. Thomas! We had the time of our lives and enjoyed everything from delicious food to awesome snorkeling adventures.
As we left our wedding reception and were heading to our hotel for the night, I received a voicemail saying that our flight for the next day was cancelled. I was absolutely devastated. After experiencing an extreme high all day long, it seemed like everything crashed and burned that night with the news that we wouldn’t be able to start our honeymoon right away like we anticipated.Read More
Having a clean and comfortable home is so important to me, so every weekend I carve out time to focus on chores. I try to knock out big tasks like laundry and vacuuming in the morning and then I do smaller chores like tidying up the living room or cleaning the bathroom here and there throughout the day.
Now that I'm married, it helps to have someone else to share household responsibilities with. Getting a husband wasn't the only thing I walked away with after my wedding - I got a dog, too! My husband and I have a Labrador Retriever and he sheds like crazy! Sometimes you can just pet him and hair falls off. I grew up having dogs as pets and I've never seen a dog shed the way that our Lab does. Although he's a sweet dog and I love him to death, my husband and I are constantly cleaning up his hair and vacuuming our floors.Read More
How is it already mid August?! I've said it before and I'll say it again - 2017 is flying by. It's so hard to believe that summer is almost over. I know that fall is coming when I start to see fall decorations going up in stores and preseason NFL football is on! I don't know about you, but I'm not ready for summer to end! Don't get me wrong, I love fall and everything that comes with it, but I'd be perfectly content if the summer weather decided to stick around through late September! Living in Michigan, that might be asking for a lot! A girl can dream though, right?
Anyway, I'm back with another Five Favorites post! The idea of this series is for me to highlight products that I've enjoyed using lately. Some products are fairly new to me, while others have been used by me for a while. These products aren't listed in any particular order. In other words, I'm not ranking them from best to worst. I'm simply just showing them off to you guys and sharing my experiences. Everything in this post is shoppable, so if you see something you like, check out the product some more.Read More
As my blog name implies, I am quite literally a millennial that’s always on the move. Day in and day out I’m balancing my full-time job, maintaining a blog, doing chores around the house and spending time with my husband as well as my family and friends. It seems like life doesn’t ever slow down for me, but that’s the way I like it. I love having things to look forward to and I love the challenge of staying organized and on top of everything. Guess I have my type A personality to thank for that!Read More
When I think of summer, I think of my favorite things – spending time with family and friends, being outside and making my favorite summertime recipes!
I love eating fruit during the summer months because it’s so refreshing! Whether it’s fresh fruit from the farmer’s market or fruit that’s chopped up and put into a fruit salad, if it’s put in front of me, I’ll eat it!
I especially love grape salad! My grandma used to make this recipe all the time when I was younger! The first time I tried it, I was hooked. The recipe is super easy and it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. In fact, you could make this recipe in a matter of minutes.Read More
Do you dream of working from home? Plenty of people do. What some people don't know is that you can work remotely AND still make a hefty salary. That sounds like a win-win, doesn't it?!
From 2005 to 2015, there has been a 115% percent increase in telecommuting. I would have never guessed that! With the growth of telecommuting and working remotely, stats have been uncovered around the average telecommuter. Here are some interesting tidbits that you might not know: the average telecommuter is 46 years or older, has at least a bachelor’s degree, and earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker. If that doesn't build an appealing case toward having a goal to work remotely, I don't know what does!Read More
It's hard to believe that we're halfway through 2017 already! I really can't believe that July is next week. Seems like I was watching the ball drop on New Years Eve 2016 just yesterday!
July is a busy month for me - I have a lot going on between holidays, plans with friends and fun celebrations. Click to read and see what I'm most looking forward to this month!Read More
