Back to School 2019

Welp, I blinked and summer was over. I told my mom last week that the summer flew by, and she said, it wasn’t that it flew by, it’s more like it was just REALLY short! And it was. The kids got out at the end of May, and went back in last Thursday. We’ve been back at it for a week now. I am happy to get back into a routine, but I am sad that our lazy days are[Read more]

Mid-Summer Check-In

Hello my long-lost friends! I took a somewhat unintentional summer hiatus, but am back to check in with you! I hope your summer is going well- it’s lasted about 30 minutes for us, or so it seems. I CAN NOT believe it’s already halfway over! It’s equal parts depressing and motivating. We’ve got a lot to cram into the last month of summertime! But so far, we’ve had some fun, some work, some downtime, some travel, and I thought I’d[Read more]

Lutons Lately: May so Cray

Hello there! So I don’t know about you, but these last few weeks have been kicking my tail! One of my friends refers to this month as “May so Cray,” and I am right there with her.

Girl, Read Your Bible

Yesterday I came across a video on Instagram. Rachel Hollis is a famed inspirational speaker and author, encouraging women to pull themselves up by their bootstraps and relentlessly run after their dreams. Not a bad message at all, right? I was a bit late to the Rachel Hollis party, slightly weary of her cult-like following, but still read her best selling book, “Girl, Wash Your Face” back at the beginning of the year. For me, there were a few quotable[Read more]
