    The Most Rewarding Q&A

    Hey y’all! Since I’ve started writing here at the Most Rewarding Life I’ve gotten to know a lot of amazing writers. So I decided to do a Q&A for my Twitter followers to give them a chance to ask some questions in order to get to know me better as a person and as a blogger. You can find their questions and my responses below. Let’s begin! From Theresa @ In Sight: Full Life – “What’s the most rewarding experience you’ve had as a blogger?” Haha I see what you did there. The Most Rewarding experience I’ve had as a blogger has honestly been getting to know some amazing writers…

PLEASE SEE DISCLOSURE POLICY FOR MORE INFORMATION. We’ve all done it. It’s time to get ready, to get dressed, so we walk to the closet or to the dresser and open it up and stare blankly for a second. Then we say those five little words that couldn’t be further from the truth: “I have nothing to wear.” I know I say this on at least a weekly basis. The truth is I have wayyyy too many clothes. There’s my small…

    A Letter to My Only Daughter

    My Dear Baby Ruth, You are growing so fast right before my eyes, and as much as I wish I could, I can’t slow it down for even a moment. It seems like just yesterday I was taking laps around the labor and delivery ward hallways because you wanted to take your time. You have always done things at your own pace and somehow seem to amaze me more and more every day. In just a few short months you’ll be turning two, and while I know you can’t read this just yet I wanted to let you in on a few things. First and foremost, I love you to…

PLEASE SEE DISCLOSURE POLICY FOR MORE INFORMATION. Picture this: You’re driving down the highway, cruising along listening to your favorite music. It’s a beautiful sunny day. Suddenly you start to hear a knocking sound coming from the engine. You don’t stress it too much in the moment, but you make a mental note to have that looked at. Then the steering wheel starts to shake, and you notice your car is running hot. You have two options: you can ignore everything,…

    Declutter or Bust: Introduction

    Do I need more space or less stuff? Do you remember that commercial from years ago where the woman with the echoey voice kept shouting “Too much stuff, not enough space!” while she’s surrounded by mountains of out of season clothes, blankets, and other things you’re wondering why she even has in the first place? That is the level of clutter I have reached in my home and it’s safe to say that it’s a breaking point. (These are actual photos of the current state of my home. I wanted to clean up and stage these photos, but decided against it as I wanted this to be real. Don’t judge…

Please see Privacy Disclosure for more information.   Lunch Date & a Movie After my massage on Monday I felt like I had officially hit the reset button. The sun seemed like it was shining brighter, rainbows decorated the sky and birds and squirrels were serenading me in true Disney fashion. Okay so maybe it didn’t play out exactly like that, but it sure felt like it. I decided on Chipotle for lunch. A sofritas (tofu) salad with the works felt like…

    My Birthday Momcation: Part One

    Day 1: Checking In It is quiet. Really quiet. I’m playing music low from my phone while catching up on social media online. Around nine my oldest FaceTimed me, snuggling the babies in his lap, asking for their bedtime prayers. Whenever I feel like I am slacking in the mom department, he is right there to remind me when I’ve done something right. I feel a little guilty for leaving them and escaping to do ‘non-mom stuff’, but I need to be at my best for them. If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know that I ended up not going to the beach. I’m a little disappointed that…
