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…

Tuesday Top 10: September 22, 2020.

Disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links, at no cost to you, when you shop my links I earn a commission! With Covid, I really got away from sharing my weekly favorites. Like a lot of families, we just didn't feel comfortable spending extra money and I didn't want anyone who follows me to feel pressured to spend. However, the last few weeks with the kids back in school I've been trying to get my fall capsule wardrobe on point. I've…

Budget Friendly Halloween Activities For The Family!

I really love making the holidays special for my family. I think it is so easy to get sucked into the mundane, so I love that holidays provide us with an opportunity to just be out of our ordinary! Plus, I love candy. So, it's easy to see why I'm a big Halloween fan. Kids love to dress up and go run around, I love the fall colors, and the list just goes on and on! Place your holds at…

Our day trip to St. Helens, Oregon–Visit Halloweentown!

Today, we took a thirty minute trip to St. Helens, Oregon.  It was a beautiful fall day, and we went to see the Spirit of Halloweentown.  [Get their full 2018 itinerary here.] This was such a neat day, it was cute to see where one of my favorite fall movies had been shot. We also learned on our adventure that Twilight and parks of the show, Grimm were shot here too!  We always try to make our day trips as…
