About Me

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Tough As They Come by SSG Travis Mills Book Review

Wow!  I have a hard time putting in words what I'm feeling right now after reading this book.   SSG Travis Mills is my hero.  Tough As They Come is a story of endurance, heroism, patriotism, unconditional love, and inspiration that will make you rethink your "bad day".  Just reading about U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills's day to day life while in combat is enough to make you appreciate our freedom in a whole new way.  Travis does an amazing job with drawing you into his life without making you feel sorry for him.  This young man has been through more than I could ever imagine and yet he displays such a sweet attitude despite it all.  I love how he even starts the book telling us that he doesn't value his service in the military above anyone else's.  He didn't serve better or harder than anyone else.  He is just grateful to have had the opportunity to serve our country.  Travis helps us see the big picture of what all our brave service men and women go through every day fighting for our country.  I hold so much respect for his wife, Kelsey.  Her loyalty and unconditional love speaks volumes and I also consider her my hero.  One of my favorite parts is at the end of the book where Travis defines success.  He defines it as "To live in freedom.  To go forward.  To love your family.  To make something of your life.  To never give up.  To never quit.
