Coffee Date | November 2022

If we were having a coffee date together today, I’d start by giving you the biggest hug, because I’m a hugger. Whether we’re good friends or new friends, you’re getting a hug. I recently had a friend visit from out of town who told me she wasn’t a hugger but that it was okay I could still hug her. This made me laugh so hard and appreciate her even more.

Is turning 30 a big deal? Well, it just happened to me and here are my thoughts, panics, and what I'm doing about it.

Hi! I'm Bree

In my day-job, I teach amazing individuals how to make money with their blog and social media! I started blogging back in 2010 as a hobby, and it turned into my dream job—helping women make their own money on their own terms. Blogging became a job that I love—now, I’m back to use this online journal as a fun place to document my life so I can look back 20 years from now and remember all the magical things.

to de-stress...

And I love to play hostess and make my guests fabulous cocktails...
