My Favorite Family & Parenting Books!

I don't really know when I got into the habit of reading parenting and family books on a pretty regular basis, but these days I usually read one of two parenting books a month. What I've learned is that you absolutely have to take them with a grain of salt. I kind of look at reading them as my continuing education as a stay at home mother. I recognize that not every single thing will be applicable in my home,…

Tuesday Top 10: Favorite Things (except it’s Wednesday!)

It's March! I don't know if it's because we just moved in December or what, but I feel like 2019 is just whizzing by so quickly. We are in a new season around here for sure, and in just six months I will have two kids in school for six hours a day. It's different, and has really put into perspective for me how quickly time with little kids flies by. So, if you've noticed I have been around less…

Finding More Confidence!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DoMoreForYourWholeMouth #ColgatePartner #CollectiveBias Moving is such a hard thing to do, building community in a new community is so stressful. I’ll be vulnerable here and say it can be really easy to just hang out at home and just withdraw. This is most likely our forever home, so even though it’s tricky to put yourself out there and start to build a community.…

Right now, our days are filled with school, homework, sport practices, fishing, cleaning, and cooking, I know it's not super glamorous or exciting, but it's where I'm at. I keep finding myself at the end of day thinking, "what a…
