Save the World

Part of my new year's resolutions included working to be more eco-friendly. Our world and it's resources are precious commodities. We, as earthly-inhabitants, need to work harder to care for it. I have seen too many videos and pictures of the horrors my "American/First-world culture" life style bring to the various ecosystems and habitats around... Continue Reading →

New Year, New Routines

Well, it's started. The 2018-2019 school year! This year we have a kindergartner and a preschooler. Josiah was not completely thrilled to be going back, and Charlotte was over-the-moon excited.

Family Command Center

I'm a planner. I like lists. I like to know what's going to happen before it does. I think most of this stems from having an anxiety disorder and needing to have a sense of control. But whatever the reason, I like to be organized. Now, I will be the first to admit that it... Continue Reading →

Getting ready… Part 1

As we all know Christmas is around the corner! And this year, as we prepare to welcome a new baby in between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I've been trying to get ready early!!

The Stockings are Hung!

As a small child my favorite decorations for Christmas were our stockings. I always thought they were the most beautiful stockings out of anyone's I'd ever seen. And they are pretty special! My mom hand crossed-stitched each stocking with a beautiful image and our names. Mine has a vintage looking Santa. My sister has a... Continue Reading →
