Links I Love

Most evenings, after the kids go to bed and I’m finished with whatever work I needed to wrap up, I love to browse all my favorite blogs and websites for recipes, articles, quizzes, and other fun things to keep me up far too late. Here are some links that I’ve come across lately that were too fun to keep to myself! Healthy Dip Recipes. YUM! Have you checked out Paperless Post lately?

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]

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]

Highlights of 2018

I have compiled some of our highlights of year, and most of them are pretty ordinary family events! But in this family, it’s the wonderful ordinary mundane moments that make a[Read more]
