Easy Summer Sangria

I am a red wine girl.  It’s my favorite thing to drink, but when it begins to get warmer out, I have to make the switch over to white wine, because I can’t bear to drink room temp red wine when it’s 90 degrees out. Unless it’s SANGRIA! And then you can throw in a couple ice cubes, some fruit juice, and enjoy chilled red wine with a bit of sweetness.  The perfect summer drink.  But who has the time to mix[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]

#MamaSummerBucketList

As I was compiling our family summer bucket list over the weekend, I kept thinking of a few things here and there that I’d like to do or that I’d like to get done myself.  And I thought, “you know what?  We are going to have an awesome summer with all these fun things to do together as a family.  But mama has some things to do too! I think I need my own summer bucket list!”  And with that, the #MamaSummerBucketList was[Read more]

#LutonSummerBucketList2018

Hello Friends!  IT’S SUMMMMMMMERRRRRR!!  Anyone else as excited as I am that you don’t have to struggle through morning routines for the next 2 months??!  I can drink my coffee quietly at my computer while my kiddos watch tv.  And they can even make their own breakfast now!  BEST. SUMMER. EVER!! We had a great end to the school year and a great weekend.   On Friday, the kids all had their last day parties, and I was so proud of[Read more]

Birthday Weekend Recap

Hello Friends!  I hope you are coming off a restful weekend and are ready to take on this LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!  I am ready to knock out these last five days, but we had a busy and fun birthday weekend and very little rest!  Last week was SO BUSY and this week will be SO BUSY, and I don’t feel like I have posted much on social media, so I thought I’d do a bit of a recap of[Read more]

10 Swimsuits + Coverups

So, swimsuit season is here.  And *confession time,* as much as I love the beach and love the pool, I am not excited about trying on swimsuits this year.  I didn’t get any new suits last year since we went to Disney World instead of the beach, so I already know I need a few new ones this year, and am really dreading it!  But at least there are FAR more one piece and tankini options than ever before, and[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Gracie Girl!

Seven years ago today, we were blessed with our sweet little six-pound Grayson Caroline.  She is a free-spirit, the sweetest little soul, a wild card, a nurturer and lover, a natural caregiver, a doting sister, and happiness embodied in child form.  Over the last seven years, we’ve learned so much from our second born, and I thought I’d just share some of the highlights today.  Happy Birthday, my girl, you have filled our lives with sunshine and shopkins and we have[Read more]

Summer Dresses + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I was sufficiently spoiled with coffee in bed (perfect for me- I don’t eat first thing in the morning), sweet homemade cards and gifts, a lovely morning in church, a relaxing day (and time for sewing for me!!), and a delicious dinner of some of my favorites made with love by my favorites!  It was such a nice day and I am blessed beyond anything I deserve. And now that[Read more]

May Fashion Obsessions

I posted about my Spring fashion must-haves back in March, but this season is just full of the cutest styles that I can’t get enough!  Here are a few obsessions as of late… I love this cute and roomy short sleeved ruffle dress.  I would throw it on to run to the store or wear on the weekends.  These are the kinds of dresses that I just need a ton of, just for all those in-between days, especially during the[Read more]

To All the Moms on Mother’s Day

Ten years ago this weekend, I had the worst Mother’s Day of my life.  A month prior, I saw those two blue lines on a pregnancy test, and started plotting and planning about how my life was about to change with a new baby and motherhood looming.  Then all hopes and dreams were dashed in a sterile doctor’s office, as I saw the baby but heard no heartbeat.  And two days before Mother’s Day, 2008, I was in the hospital[Read more]
