7 Things For June

Summer always seems to bring a wave of nostalgia. School is out and seeing how excited my son is for his first official summer break brings back all the memories of my own summer breaks. Many of which were spent on the beach of a small island in Maine where my grandparents lived. Playing in the frigid waves with my cousins seemed like so much...

A Look At Sustainable Farming

If you follow me on social media, you probably saw that we took a road trip out to Louisiana last week to visit some of our family and let the kids experience a farm first hand. We think it’s really important that our kids know where their food comes from and that they understand what it really looks like to thoughtfully take care of the...

7 Things For April

This is our first spring in our new house and everything is blooming in our yard. I have to give credit to the previous owners, because you all know I have zero luck with plants. It’s been a nice surprise to have so many trees and bushes adorned in flowers. Annabelle is in heaven since she loves picking flowers and I’m slightly worried I should...

7 Things For February

The shortest month of the year also happens to be the coldest (at least around here). If we’re going to get a big snow storm in N.C., it usually happens in February. The kids are dying to go sledding in our new neighborhood so they’ve been crossing their fingers for some real snow! It’s also the month of love, which at times can be over-commercialized,...

7 Things For January

Cold days and cozy nights. January has started with a bang for us. Is it just me, or has the way New Years fell this year throwing everything off a bit? I had the kids home half of last week for Christmas break and the we rushed to get out of town for a wedding over the weekend. I haven’t even taken all of our...

Fresh Starts: Time To Detox Your Home

No better way to kick off the new year, than to make a few quick changes for the better. I say quick, because sometimes if you can just do a couple of simple things and get the ball rolling, it can motivate you to tackle bigger things down the road. This is why I always start every checklist with some simple tasks and even some...

Ahh November is finally here and we’re inching closer to my favorite time of the year! Our family has a ton of November birthdays and lots of friends always swing into town for Thanksgiving, so this is always a happy, fun-filled month for us.

Busy Mom Essentials

I’ve spent enough time lamenting about the torturously early wakeup calls and nonstop busyness that started this fall, but I have to admit, it’s been kicking my butt big time. Most normal families start going to bed earlier and get on schedules before the school year starts, but we made a rookie mistake and did neither. We even went on vacation the week before school, meaning...
