Greetings! I’m Renee, a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I’ve started this blog to share my journey with others, and I hope to inspire, educate, motivate and encourage others through my ideas, feelings, experiences and knowledge. The journey is better together, and the special people in my life make each day a gift to celebrate. The journey I’ve traveled to get here may have had times of despair, frustration and heartache, but was also full of love, happiness and memories. I would do it all again, to be right here, right now.
I love to cook and eat, and I’ve traveled through Europe doing just that. You’ll find recipes of food that I love, and stories of places I’ve visited. I’m learning to cut out processed food, and eat whole food full of nutrition and health, and I try to reflect that in my cooking. From Mexican food, to Italian food, French and German food, I’m a big fan and love to share great recipes and wonderful meals with family and friends.
I’m an avid book reader and I’m looking forward to sharing with you the books I’m reading and enjoying. My kindle was a wonderful gift from my husband, and it makes collecting books so much easier. I’ve been contacted directly from authors to read and review their books, and this has brought many books to my attention that I may not have read. I don’t do a book report – I’ll give you an honest book review. I don’t like to give away too much about the plot or characters, this is the job of the author. Reading to me is a time to relax, escape, enjoy and learn. You’ll find that I read a great variety of books. I’d also love to hear about any recommendations you have.
Life@Random category at Lifes Good Journey is just that – the random things that come into life that I’d like to share with you and talk about.
So, what pays the bills? My husband Ryan Mihld and I own two real estate companies. Ryan is a Real Estate Broker in Southern California and we are fortunate to be able to work together. Home Buyers Realty Group is our brokerage where we help people buy and sell houses. It’s rewarding when we are able to help someone make their dream of home ownership come true. Home ownership is often a big step in someones lifes good journey. We also invest in properties that need to be remodeled and sold. This is where we collaborate on design ideas, and I truly enjoy seeing the homes come to life. I appreciate my flexible work schedule, so I have time to spend on my passion – lifes good journey.
Let’s smile, celebrate life, and enjoy this journey together. God bless you.

Speaking of things I love – Amazon Prime. When I received my kindle, I became a frequent Amazon shopper. I’d even get on their site daily to check for new, and often free, kindle books. My Amazon Prime membership became even more of a bargain when my beloved daughter moved to Alaska (more about that story in another blog). Well with Amazon Prime, I was able to ship things to her for free. What a great way to get her things she needs. With an Amazon Prime Membership you get unlimited FREE 2-Day shipping, borrow kindle books and watch over 40,000 movies and TV episodes. As an Amazon Affiliate I’m able to share with you a FREE 30 DAY TRIAL.
Even if you don’t own a kindle, the kindle app is a great way to view and read your favorite books. As I’ve mentioned I get a lot of kindle books for free. And kindle is a great way to buy books at a discount from the hardcover or paperback price. You can download the kindle app onto your desktop computer and mobile device. Try it here for free.
