The boys and I watched the cutest movie recently and I wanted to make sure you guys knew it was steaming on Disney+ LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special was the perfect little holiday film to kick off the season. I don’t want to give a ton away so I shared the details from the press release below. I will tell you there were adorable Chewbacca’s and lots of turkey legs involved. I thought it would be a perfect movie to…

Home for the holidays 2020: Fun Things To Do As A Family From Home!

I know the holidays look different so many of us this year. In a lot of ways, I feel like our experience as a military family has given us a unique perspective on spending the holidays “alone.” Flights and grad school budget didn’t always mesh so we’ve spent PLENTY of holidays just the four of us. I actually don’t mind. I kind of love it, if I’m being honest. I love being in my house with the people I love…

A Welcoming Bathroom For Every Guest!

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser, Angel Soft®. All opinions are mine alone. #AngelSoftScentedTube When we bought our house, we wanted it be a sanctuary for our family but also any guests. We’d also been wondering if we had the capacity to someday open our home as foster parents. I’d be involved in the foster care community for years as a volunteer in the margin hours of raising the boys and building this platform. We…

What to do to Prep For Your Best Holiday Season EVER! Holiday Hacks Edition!

We are almost to Halloween, but my crusade for a more peaceful holiday season knows no boundaries. Honestly, I'm thinking of the Christmas season all year long. It isn't uncommon to see me at yard sales in the summer months thinking of stocking stuffers, outfits for family photos, cute decor. This means that normally during the holidays, you'll see me present with my family. You'll not find me stressed (too often) you'll hear me say yes to entirely too many…

Celebrate October & Halloween without spending a bunch of money!

I am absolutely in the camp of people who TURN ALL THE WAY up for the holidays. It’s probably because I’m an enneagram 7 and thrive with a theme. But I like to think a lot of it has to do with how God wired me. I want everything I share to be easy to recreate at home on any budget! Movies are a fabulous way to set the spooky atmosphere. No need to buy anything new. There’s some amazing…

And that’s on feeling weary.

I've been reading the letters of Zellie Martin lately. She, her husband, and her daughter are all saints. I read somewhere someone describing her letters 19th century blog posts, and I completely agree with this. She writes of her days-- the celebrations, but also the mundane. She talks about tantrums, shopping for seasonally appropriate clothing, she shares these poetic highs and lows. I want my writing to be like that, I want to be applicable whether you are planning a…

Our Weekend Getaway To Dunwoody, Georgia!

Disclosure: Thank you so much to the Marriott Perimeter in Atlanta for hosting us in your beautifully renovated hotel for the weekend. All opinions expressed are my own. Truth be told, I was a little nervous to begin traveling again. We try to travel monthly, even if its just here locally. It is something our family has always placed high value on. During quarantine, that obviously subsided so firing up my favorite road trip tunes and hitting the road felt…
