life right now [January]

currently… wondering where the heck this month went? I seriously blinked and it’s over! waiting for our 2023 Family Yearbook to arrive in the mail (always one of my favorite mail days). catching up on photographing my kids artwork (I shared it on IG this weekend). buying another coloring table cloth (for Valentines) because it was such...

life right now [December]

currently… enjoying Christmas break. My kids have off from December 20 – January 8th this year. That’s like a college winter break! loving that we did a Christmas trip this year instead of gifts under the tree. It made for a really quiet and relaxing Christmas. using this fun coloring table cloth everyday. We set this as...

THIS YEAR’S FAVORITE READS [2023]

This is my 11th year making a book recommendation or ‘favorite reads’ list. But, this year was the hardest for me to create because I read 140 books this year (!!!) and it’s HARD to narrow down. How did I read so many books? Audiobooks were a game changer for me (they made up 56% of...

Our Trip to NYC

Instead of Christmas gifts under the tree this year, we took a family trip to New York! This was a bucket list item for me (I’d never been) and something about turning 40 this year sparked me to take action on it. I knew the trip would be fun around the holidays, even if it’s...

life right now [November]

currently… recovering from a busy Thanksgiving break! My parents came to town and we celebrated Colin’s birthday, my Dad’s birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas (they won’t be visiting next month) and a gender reveal for my brother/sister-in-law’s baby! putting up Christmas decorations. I worked with Courtney’s Table again to put together a gorgeous holiday table and I...

Colin is eleven!

Colin, You are eleven years old!  For this year’s annual “birthday photo date” we did something totally different and visited the mall. It didn’t take much coaxing because you were in your element. We visited your faves- Lids, Pro Image and Fanzz- and then grabbed burgers for dinner. You are still sports-obsessed. Basketball, football, college, premiere league…...

life right now [October]

currently… recovering from Fall Break. We stayed here in Colorado and visited the Glenwood Springs Adventure Park (an amusement park on top of a mountain!). It was really fun! shopping for Colin’s 11th birthday. I think he’ll be most excited about this gift.  using this new gadget I got during Prime Day to add Apple CarPlay to my...

life right now [September]

currently… upping our camping game with this ginormous tent. First of all, this was our first tent camping experience as a family of four. Second of all, I told John the four of us couldn’t fit in the small tent we own so he said he’d handle it. This one probably could hold the entire...

life right now [august]

currently… settling into a routine now that the kids are back in school. loving my new treadmill desk attachment. I’ve been starting the day walking while working and it’s great for sneaking in more movement. wearing this adjustable Apple Watch strap so that I can wear my watch on my leg when I’m walking on the treadmill (if...

5 Things I Learned From Wearing a CGM

Last year an influencer I follow on Instagram shared a photo wearing a Levels CGM monitor. I watched her make changes to her nutrition, her health transform… and I was intrigued. But when I looked up the cost of the app + monitor, I immediately dismissed it. I’d lost weight multiple times in the past...

life right now [july]

currently… finishing up my summer break. Those two months FLEW! enjoying a one-on-one week with Colin (his sister is in Florida visiting Grandma). We’ve got lots of fun things planned- Cirque du Soleil, Bandimere Speedway, Water World, and more! wearing this new summer dress. Initially I thought it was too little-house-on-the-prairie, but I’ve gotten lots of compliments...

Halfway Check: MY 23 FOR 2023 LIST

Last week on the Happier podcast they shared an update on the 23 for 23 lists in honor of ‘Halfway Day’ and I thought I’d do the same! Here’s how the list is going so far… [My initial 23 for 23 list blog post for reference if you want more background/explanation on any items.] If...

life right now [June]

currently… enjoying my summer break. I’ve been off Instagram for 3 weeks (deleted it from my phone!) and it’s been really refreshing. creating a custom video for our trip to Scotland. The photo above is from a ferry ride off the Aisle of Skye. wearing these awesome Vuori joggers (just wish they were more reasonably priced...

life right now [may]

currently… wrapping up another school year. I think my favorite new-to-us activity this year was Cub Scouts (the photo above was from our recent camping trip). working my last work day until August! Summer break starts tomorrow! attempting a ‘screen free summer’ for the kids. No iPads or video games. Plus I’m removing Instagram from my...

life right now [April]

currently… recovering from a work conference (back-to-back trips to Orlando for me this year!) carrying Colby all the places as he continues to recover from his bi-lateral ACL repair. He had a little hip injury set back last week but is back on track now with his progress. feeling accomplished after getting my ‘to read’ list down...

My Remarkable Tablet

Last year a friend told me about her Remarkable tablet and explained how she uses it for her business. I had seen ads for it and hadn’t really considered buying one because I couldn’t envision how it would fit into my own business and client work. But when she showed me how she loaded templates,...

life right now [march]

currently… unpacking from spring break in Florida. We visited Grandma and then did two days at Disney. creating our family video from the trip (my kids favorite post-trip tradition)! reading Sea of Tranquility. listening to Now is Not the Time to Panic on audiobook. watching the new season of Love Is Blind. eating these Monster Cookie protein bites. feeling a little...

life right now [January]

currently… starting my days with a snowy 3 mile hike. I began this routine when the kids started school this fall and wasn’t sure if I’d be able to maintain it through the cold winter months, but I’m really enjoying this quiet time outside. (These Yaktrax are absolutely critical though). finishing my 2022 Family Yearbook. I...

    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!
