Smoked Pork and Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

Sorry guys. Today I’m gonna talk about some more boring, grown up stuff. If you want to see something lighthearted and fun, watch this or this. Cuteness overload.

My hubby and I officially have life insurance. It’s actually a relief to finally have it.

Our next step: finalizing our wills. We’ve been putting it off for quite some time. But it is definitely something that must be done.

One of the toughest things we discussed was who would take care of our kids should we both pass away at the same time. We had to make sure their guardian(s) would be financially stable and able to give them the love and attention they deserve. Not an easy decision to make.

So guys, tell me, do you have a will?
