Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, my friends!  Can you believe it's now 2019?!  I seriously can't.  Not to mention, it's going to probably be March when I'm finally used to writing "2019" on everything.  Sheseh!

I'm sitting here, writing this post, my hair is in the messiest bun I think it's ever seen, I'm working on my second cup of coffee, and my kiddos are watching a movie with their daddy.  It's heaven.  Well, at least heaven on Earth.  And I realize that motherhood is truly one of the greatest adventures I've taken.  Yeah, the days are long, but the years are short---super short---and I have literally blinked and the kids are already three and four!  How!?  And that got me to thinking...

Now, some people have "resolutions".  Some people have "goals".  Some people choose to work on their "bucket list".  Some choose to do nothing at all!  I've been in one of those groups at least once in my lifetime.  But this year, I'm choosing to make a theme for the year.

The Year of Adventure!



I encourage you to adopt this theme in your life with me!  Your resolutions, goals, Bucket List, or even your nothing at all can all fit in with this theme!  Whether you want to travel more and plan an epic trip around the world (I'm jealous, take me with you, please!) or you just want to start a new book, I feel like either can be an adventure!

Each choice we make, each day we live, we can choose to just take it for what it's worth or we can be excited about the opportunities they present us with!  We can pump ourselves up for the adventure that these opportunities bring!

I'm embarking on many new adventures this year---a new business opportunity, new business direction, new stages of life (this fall, both my kiddos will be in pre-school!  Lord, help me!), among many other unknown, mystery adventures that are yet to be revealed to me in the coming months!  I do pray that I can embrace these adventures as an adventure; not as a burden or a tragedy (I can be a little dramatic, so sometimes when the cat throws up and the kids run through it all over the house, it's tragic...).

I'd love to hear what your adventures are and how I can help you achieve or encourage you!!  Do you want to make a career change, too?  Do you want to start a family or add to your family?  Do you want to take an awesome trip somewhere fabulous?  Or do you want to learn how to just take some moments during the crazy year to decompress for some you time?  Whatever you decide to do this year, whatever way you look at the New Year, I hope you embrace #YearOfAdventure with me and share what your adventures look like with me and the rest of the Sparkle & Fizz Community!

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder.

I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!  After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born.


I imagine you can see why this is not just my most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot!

Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday!

Exciting News!!

As I mentioned before, this year was a Year of Adventure.  I embarked down a new pathway with Sparkle & Fizz, changing direction, and before I knew it, I was propelled forward on a journey that I literally only dreamed of.

Today, I'm launching the next component of my Sparkle & Fizz Adventure---Podcasting!!

To say the least, I am nervous as hell, but, Episode One is complete and LIVE now!

Check it out here:
Don't forget to find me on Social Media & Connect!  (See the Contact Me Page for how and where.)  I want to hear your thoughts and feedback!  What do you want to talk about in the future?  Who would you like to hear come on board (I'm talking local, my friends...I can't make any celebrities appear!)?

I'm so excited and now exhausted!  I think I'm gonna go take a much deserved nap!




Psalm 31:5

As I reflect back on 2018, I have realized just how God-driven my year really was.  I learned so many things, I made some exciting changes, I traveled down new paths, I made new friends, I embarked on new journies.  2018 will be coming to a close soon and I feel that I have been called to make 2019 another very purposeful, very Christ-centric year.  2018 was a year for self-discovery and I believe in my heart that 2019 is a year for others and to live out my own personal mission statement.

As many of you know, I became a distributor for SeneGence International.  I decided to become a distributor for one reason—I loved the products and I wanted to share them with the world.  Over this last year, I reflected back on why I loved the products and the answer was very simple: they made me feel confident.  Friends, this was truly the first time in my whole life where I truly felt comfortable in my own skin.  This was the first time in my whole life where I finally believed I was the beautif…
