This is a post prepared under a contract funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and written on behalf of the Mom It Forward Influencer Network for use in CDC’s Get Ahead of Sepsis educational effort. Opinions on this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of CDC. I have an amazing love of world travel and recently spent two weeks in Kenya serving with an education and medical team. As a world traveler, I have a responsibility to protect myself and know the health risks. There is one health risk that affects you and me called sepsis. Today, I’ll tell you about The Risks of Sepsis and Infections at Home and Abroad. My team’s job was to [Click here to continue reading]

5 things every retiree should have in place before their last day at work

5 things every retiree should have in place before their last day at work

I’m coming up on my 41st birthday in a few weeks and have been talking a lot with my husband about retirement. Our children will all be adults in four years, at that time we’ll transition into empty nesters, then one day retire and do more travelling. My thoughts on 5 things every retiree should have in place before their last day is a sponsored post written by me in partnership with VSP® Individual Vision Plans. My husband and I both left our jobs over a decade ago and now make a living working for ourselves. In essence, I wake up everyday feeling like a retiree, because entrepreneurship has given me the financial and time freedom I didn’t have with a job. Our retirement talks [Click here to continue reading]

Kenya Travel Wardrobe

Kenya Travel Wardrobe

I had the most amazing time in Kenya and still have so many pictures to sort through, print and blog about. I was looking through some of the photos and decided to start with a recap of what I wore. So the weather was amazing y’all. Something like 70 degrees every day we were there. Perfect weather for the safari’s and traveling from city to the bush. We touched down in Nairobi where we spent two days (more on that later) and we traveled to the smaller cities and national reserves. I loved how I could pretty much dress there the same as I do in the states. I did buy a bunch of camping style clothes, but I really didn’t have to do that. [Click here to continue reading]

Fall Date Night tips for the outdoorsy couple

Fall Date Night tips for the Outdoorsy Couple

#advertisement I received compensation from Dr. Scholl’s® to write this post. All opinions are entirely my own. #CustomFitRelief #DrScholls Babe and I love to travel. In the last year we’ve been to Florida, Honduras, Georgia, Charlotte, Amsterdam, and Kenya! We’ve done so many fun things from touring the Kenyan safaris to walking the shores of Lake Elmenteita in the Great Rift Valley which is about 70 miles from Nairobi. Most of our travels include being on our feet, which often leads to foot and back pain. Since we don’t plan on slowing down, we had to put a plan in place to make sure our bodies could keep up with our adventures. A few years ago we started using Dr. Scholl’s® Orthotic Inserts, but a [Click here to continue reading]

Honduras “Christ Statue” El Picacho

If you’re going to be in Tegucigalpa, Honduras I’m going to tell you about a “not-so-secret” must-see monument. While spending a week in Honduras, my husband and I spent a day sight seeing and tasting the local food. One of the destinations on our tour was the “Christ Statue” on the hill El Picacho. The Christ at El Picacho is in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The city is amazing and overflowing with culture. As soon as we stepped off of the plane onto the tarmac at Toncontin International Airport, we knew we weren’t in the U.S. anymore. I’ve travelled to several continents and have never landed on the tarmac, so that alone was worth the trip. After spending a few days in the guest [Click here to continue reading]
