Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Friday was my Grayson’s birthday and yesterday was mine, so we had a big, celebratory birthday weekend! I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. I had a moment that I was absolutely overcome with gratitude, and I hope I have a moment like that every year!

April Favorites

CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE IT’S MAY??!! School is almost out, we’re almost halfway through the year (WHAT??!!), and we’re through another month. On this lovely first Monday of May, I’m sharing some of my favorite things from April, the month that seemed to last about 15 minutes, haha. Free SoloI am not a risk taker or a rock climber, but this Oscar-winning documentary was spellbinding. Both Scott and I were glued to the screen and couldn’t stop watching. We stopped[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 am so glad that I am able to look back on 2018 with fondness- our family had a really wonderful year! It was not without its challenges, struggles, and stresses FOR SURE, but it was also full of laughter, togetherness, learning, growing, adjusting, readjusting, and so much love. 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]

TGIF: WTFlu

Well, hello, my friends! I am out from under the blankets of my sofa, finally, after laboring through the misery of the flu this week. I haven’t been really sick in several years now, and let me just say, GET YOUR FLU SHOT if you haven’t already. I started getting a scratchy throat and a mild cough on Sunday, and I went to the doctor on Monday for an unrelated appointment. I was starting to feel worse and described my[Read more]

Mid-Summer Tops

Even though we’re still only about halfway through the season of summer, sometimes I have a hard time justifying buying more summer clothes once we get to the end of July and into August.  I start getting the itch to buy jeans and jackets and boots and such, but you know what, daggumit, it will be hot until around Halloween and I still have some time for summer clothes!  So here are a few cute mid-summer tops that I have my eye on:[Read more]

Friday Favorites + Reflections on the First Week of Summer

The first week of summer is always kind of an adjustment, amiright?  I feel like summertime is kind of like childbirth- you always look back on it fondly and don’t always remember how hard the bad parts were, haha!  We thrive on schedules around here and are definitely loving the lax bedtimes and laid back mornings,  but we’re still finding our groove.  But we’ll figure it out, just in time for school to start back, I’m sure, ha! So with it[Read more]
