I am Tess…the loving and sometimes cranky wife. The little sister. The daughter. The aunt they call Sissy. The loving, caring, and protective mom. The (bad) singer of songs. The one who loves butterflies. The boo-boo fixer. The planner. The cook. The washer of all things dirty. The girl who will cry at a sad song. The surprise gift buyer. The back and shoulders for free rides. The reader. The writer.  The mother of 2 beautiful daughters (Lorelai, 6 & Leia, 18 months) here  on Earth and one in the skies as my butterfly (Brayleigh).

Hello! It’s Kim here!  I’m a wife, mom and coworker.  A sister, aunt, sister-in-law and friend. I’m also 50 and want to be around when my 14 year old daughter goes off to college, finds her first love, has her first heartbreak,(not necessarily in that order lol), gets married and hopefully makes me a grandma!  But here’s the thing, I haven’t made the best choices to be able to help myself along the way…I’m slightly overweight, way too stressed about money (college is looming close in the future) and I haven’t saved a penny towards retirement!  Thankfully, I work with Tess!  She is full of energy and enthusiasm.  We are going to challenge ourselves and each other to live a better life!  One with HOPE! You may have the byline of our blog…HOPE stands for Health, Opportunity, Persistence and Excellence.  I am committed to achieving HOPE!  Are you?
