I've been thinking a lot about gratitude lately! As our channel has grown so has our hearts, it is a bit overwhelming to think of our followers and the love and support we feel from each of you! Every. Single. Day. you show up and show us love and positive vibes and we could not be more grateful!

From our YouTube to Instagram to Facebook, Twitter and finally HERE on our blog we see endless comments about our family, kids, recipes, and ultimately our lives. This is just a way to say THANK YOU to all those who are invested and care for us!

We will never be able to put into words how much we love each of you and are so grateful for you being a part of our lives. YOU make the difference for us. YOU make it so we want to show up each and every day. 

The amount of comments we get when our kids are heading in for a swim meet, soccer game, dance recital, or a motocross race, our hearts are full and usually our eyes are wet from the amount of love we feel. The kids can feel your love for them through all of our outlets.

Now some days may not be easy, some days you just want to stay in bed in your jammies but we always rise to the occasion that every day has the potential to be great! It's a choice we get to make. So MAKE today great and choose to be happy!

One thing we always love to say, and boy do we mean it!




  • I also believe happiness is a choice. When my wife was battling cancer, she wrote ‘Happiness is a Choice’ and put it up right by the front door to remind her, me, our kids of that choice. It was such a great, positive thing to help up all to never have a bad day and choose to be happy. It’s been nearly 8 years since my wife lost her battle with cancer but her example of being happy will always remain with us. Love you guys so much!!

  • Hi Sweet Mindy. You take care of 4 children plus their activities, your hubby, you are the house manager, you’re a precious step mom, you run a merchandise business, and you seem to be the main vlogger most of the time. Girl…it’s a miracle you can do all that day after day. I’ve learned you like to be in control, but sweet Mindy, you really could burnout. You appear to be very caring and loving and while you and the fam always say you love us, (oh, I believe it) please take more ‘Mindy moments.’ They are vital to raising and operating a family unit. Please girl, take good care of yourself, because you are SOoo worth it. ❤ Wishing you the best life.
