life right now [November]

currently… easing back into the usual routine after a lovely Thanksgiving break. We went skiing three times! buying this little strap to hopefully help the kids carry their own ski gear (it’s their first year with poles which is even more to juggle). decorating for Christmas! This ornament is the family favorite this year. reading Mexican Gothic....

life right now [october]

currently… recovering from my Mastermind Retreat last week. We took a cruise out of LA and spent our days at sea doing ‘hot seats’ where we dedicated 3-4 hours of attention to each person’s individual business. It was fabulous. dressing up for Halloween today. Jill is Luisa from Encanto and I’m her accompanying donkey. We wanted Colin...

Jill is eight!

Jill, You are eight years old, baby girl, and second grade is your scene! The first few weeks you came home telling me ALL about how much you love your teacher (she’s the best). At parent teacher conferences I loved to hear about how well you’ve been doing with your writing, but it also warmed my...

life right now [august]

currently… settling into a new routine (kids are back in school)! playing lots of Mexican Train Dominoes. wondering how I made it 13.5 years of dog ownership without this brilliant gadget (it’s glued to our dog food container). reading Salt to the Sea. listening to the Everyday Magic audiobook (came out today!). watching the final season of Ozark. wearing these...

life right now [July]

currently… wondering where summer went. School starts in just over 2 weeks! shopping for school supplies (see above). reading A Court of Thorns and Roses (the hype on this book is intense so I have high hopes)! listening to the The Tipping Point audiobook. watching Big Brother. Our summertime guilty pleasure. eating these yummy cookie dough energy bites....

life right now [June]

currently… enjoying my summer break. The photo above was from a girls trip to the Bahamas earlier this month (we surprised my sister with it for her 30th Birthday). working our way through a summer ‘bucket list’ (it’s a Note on my phone, nothing fancy). The kids made it so it’s things like Urban Air, mini...

life right now [may]

getting ready for summer break (the kids get out of school tomorrow)! feeling glad I haven’t gotten around to planting my flower boxes because we got a FOOT of snow over the weekend. listening to The Body Keeps the Score on audiobook. It’s heavy. reading The Lost Apothecary on my kindle. watching Yellowstone (we’re on...

life right now [April]

currently… enjoying the little monthly minis from Chatbooks. We started a subscription in January (it’s $5/month which includes shipping). This photo from our final skip trip of the season will be our April book’s cover. cleaning my kids bedrooms and closets (they had gotten SO messy). I removed a full bag of garbage from EACH...

life right now [march]

currently… recovering from the 10th Annual Photo Managers conference that was here in Denver last week (I presented a session on Instagram which was fun!). feeling more organized and so much lighter after scanning hundreds of physical papers for my business to finally go paperless (I was inspired by my new Organizing Digital Files Fast Class!)...

life right now [February]

currently… loving the cute photos we got from our Valentines Mini Session with Angie! getting back to normal after a long (but luckily very mild) bout of Covid. obsessing over my new Remarkable tablet. It’s really streamlined my business in the few weeks I’ve been using it! using this new wallet. I love the strap that...

life right now [January]

currently… watching the front door for the UPS person to arrive with my 2021 Family Yearbook (hooray)! obsessing over these pre-cut parchment circles. Seriously, have these been around my entire life and I’ve been over here cutting out circles by hand? loving our new ottoman because it has a built in desktop (took almost a year...

life right now [december]

currently… enjoying winter break. I’m doing my best to take time away from work while my kids are off school (but I’m really itching to get deep in 2022 planning… my favorite part of the year)! recovering from a scary and emotional day of winter wildfires here in Colorado (in a very densely populated nearby area)....

THIS YEAR’S FAVORITE READS [2021]

This is my NINTH year making a book recommendation or ‘favorite reads’ list. This year felt very different though because I set the resolution to ‘make reading a priority again.’ I was inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s Read 21 In 2021 Challenge (read 21 mins each day this year) and I set a goal to read...

life right now [November]

currently… recovering from lots of travel this month- two trips to Florida (one for work and one with the family) and one to Texas! making a custom video of our trip to Disney! It was the first time with the kids and we visited Animal Kingdom (pictured above) and Magic Kingdom. shopping for all the Christmas presents....

Colin is Nine!

Colin, You are nine years old!  I can’t believe it’s your final year of single digits because it feels like only a year ago that you came into this world and made me a mom. For years you’ve been impressing me with your ability to retain numbers, identify patterns, and recall all of it as if it’s...

life right now [October]

currently… recovering from a quick weekend trip to Breckenridge. It was originally booked as a solo trip (I was going to write my next eBook!) but childcare fell through so I brought the kids instead and it was a fun weekend… even if I wrote zero total words. playing with my iPhone 13 Pro. I’m loving the...

life right now [September]

currently… obsessing over donkeys after a spontaneous trip to Longhopes Donkey Sanctuary last week. It was everything I didn’t know I needed. waiting not-so-patiently to get the new iPhone 13 Pro. I’m doing the Verizon trade-in because they offer an additional $400 for my iPhone 11 Pro and that’s too good to pass up. But since...

life right now [august]

currently… sharing alllll the info on our trip to Iceland. I still can’t believe how much fun we had! settling into a new routine now that the kids are back in school. working out in the morning after I get the kids on the bus (I’ve always been an evening workout person). Still loving our NordicTrack treadmill....

      I’m a little lost.  Do I import this calendar template into Project life?  If so, how do I do that?  Being old and not tech savvy has its disadvantages…..I’ve taken two of your classes…..maybe I need more 🙂ReplyCancel

    HI, I’M MISS FREDDY.

     

    Actually, my name is Casey. As a newborn I resembled Fred Flintstone so my parents nicknamed me Freddy and it stuck. I am a professional photo organizer (yes, that's a thing!) who helps people all over the world make sense of their photo mess through organizing services and self-paced online courses.

     

    I want to help you ENJOY your photos again!
