It GOT HOT here in Jacksonville this month! I mean high humidity and low 100s/mid 90s EVERY DAY!

Our long walks have become a walk down the beach and than a swim through the ocean on our way home just to stay cool!

For this month’s overview post we decided to both write so you will see Cordie’s name after the parts he writes!

Lots of Storms this month! The weather quickly changes within 10 – 20 mins.

This month flew by for us! I completed our first 30 day meal plan adding more fish, chicken, and pork keeping out carbs (pasta dishes) meals to our nightly dinners!

It was a lot of fun trying new recipes each week and figuring out how much two people eat and how well leftovers last. We found out what are favorites are and will be repeating in July!

Shredded Pork with Pineapple Coleslaw

2015-06-03 17.50.39

Recipe recommended topping the pork with cilantro and avocados!

2015-06-03 17.47.55

My first time cooking pork in the crock pot!

Day Two Cordie had the leftovers in a soup like form!

Cordie – This one is by far and away my favorite.    I’ve been counting down the days till my lovely wife makes it again.

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bell Peppers

2015-06-01 18.01.54 (1)

Before Cooked – This recipe was the longest prep and cooking time of all the new recipes I tried this month!

After wards – So good. Make sure if you stuff peppers when you cut into them there will be juice/sauce that spills out.

Cordie – This one is surprisingly good.  A little buffalo hot sauce and some ranch and it’s perfect.

Shredded Chicken with Posole – Added my own ingredients to the chicken and cooked in the crock pot for 8+ hours.

Posole is usually paired with lime, chili powder and oregano!

Cordie – Ever since I’ve been around the Osborn household I’ve had the honor of being introduced to posole.  It’s quickly become one of my favorite things to eat.  Surprisingly this was the first time we’ve made it ourselves and definitely won’t be the last.  Although not as good as my mother in laws ;) – if you havent tried posole it’s about time you do

People always ask us or say – how do you both work from home together? Cordie usually responds with it is really easy and great! We know when we are working together to keep it work focused and planning/dreaming organizing our weekly tasks is really great with someone you can trust! We challenge each other to take risks. To stay focus on one ‘project’ ‘idea’ (which is really hard to do long term). And always make sure we take time for DATE NIGHTS!

We drove down to St. Augustine at my Favorite Restaurant around – The Floridian! -Cordie

There are a lot of ‘dreamprenuers’ out there and Cordie – ON HIS OWN is not just an entrepreneur who DOES THINGS and sees progress but is a producer, creator and great business owner and we are excited to see where our future takes us as a family and as a business!

Katherine biked by me one day on my way to Starbucks. -Cordie

One of the things I’ve learned is to always mix up my work environment.  So you’ll find us working at 1 of 3 tables and desks we have scattered throughout the house, outside on the balcony on a phone call, or at one of 3 coffee shops within walking distance.  I’ve learned that the more comfortable your workspace the more likely you are to get distracted or feel like you have all day to complete the projects you’re trying to get done.   By changing your environment it helps to stay focused and productive while working. -Cordie

We are loving life together!




three years ago ->


Thinking back on this day brings such a whirlwind of emotions… The decision to say yes to the man of my dreams to believe and trust God that it would work out and be better than I could have EVER imagined.

In Colorado – 2014

We have gone through a lot together and in talking about it yesterday neither of us would have wanted it any other way or have chosen to do anything alone instead of together.


We have traveled the world.


Great Barrier Reef, Australia – 2014

Moved to another part of the United States. Are Following our dreams for ourselves and our family as it is now and the future of it. Have Laughed so hard at the littlest things together that no one else would ever understand. Cook amazing meals together. Plan our future world travels. Work HARD to live the life we want to live and try to never take it for granted!


I truly did marry my best friend and will forever be honored and blessed that he CHOSE ME. pursued me over and over and over again. :)


Inside the Vatican Museum – Rome, Italy. 2013

PICKED ME TO do this life with. I will always remember this day and him making it incredibly romantic, intentional, and special for just him and I.

He wrote me the song you can see him playing in the proposal below video (not what you hear). Surprised me with two photographers filming and taking pictures of the whole thing!

I am happy to celebrate/remember this day today and so excited for what OUR future has in store for us no matter what others do or say around us!
