Everyone keeps talking about how 2016 was such a horrible year, and everyone is so ready for 2016 to be over, but 2016 was a great year for our family!  Did it have it’s challenges?  Absolutely (what year doesn’t?).  But, 2015 was a HARD year for us, and we worked really hard through 2016 and made it work, and are now that much more excited for the year to come!  Not because 2016 was bad, but because it was GOOD,[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hello Friends!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  It got COLLLLLLLDDDDDDD the end of last week, so we had a fire going all weekend long, which is pretty much perfection to me when combined with twinkly Christmas lights and a bottle of wine.  And except for a few last-minute things and stocking stuffers, I am done with Christmas shopping!  And that is great, because we have two SUPER BUSY weeks leading up to Christmas!  Which is also why my[Read more]
