Today we’re diving into a new series that I’m really excited about! If you’re anything like me, you wonder what other people do during the day – from their jobs to favorite meals, home life to workouts, and everything in between. A day in the life snapshot, if you will. I’m going to kick it off with what a typical (is there any such thing) day looks like for me, and I’ll be continuing this series with other inspiring women in my life! I’m constantly wondering how does she do it all? The secret, usually, is that she doesn’t. I’m learning that […]
Welcome, February! We’re ready for you. January didn’t go anything like I imagined… so I have zero expectations for the month ahead. All I want is more time with friends and family, adventure, and delicious eats! How did you like January’s organization post? It definitely helped me get a lot done – and I hope you’re starting the year feeling organized, too! I’m excited to share my organization plan for February. It’s definitely not as lengthy 🙂 You’ll notice a few of the same tasks (which will always repeat – are you noticing a trend?) as well as items for […]
Happy New Year, friends! We rang in the new year at 11pm (12am EST) with pizza delivery and boxed brownies. The perfect slow ending to a crazy, busy year. My/our goal for 2018 is to slow down and spend more time doing what we love, all while simplifying our life. Really, it goes hand in hand – when life is organized and stripped down to the basics, we can slow down AND fill our time with happy things. Over the weekend, I made a list of all of the things we needed to do before the end of the year […]
It’s hard to believe it’s time to start “recapping” parts of the year. I’m seriously stunned at how fast this year flew by! I thought it would be fun to share a list of books I read this year. One of my goals last January was to read more… that was it! I didn’t put any parameters on it, just to read more than I currently had been. Well, mission accomplished! I really do try to read at least 30 minutes each day – does it happen every day? Definitely not. But, when I do make time for it, I […]
I can’t believe it’s already time to start talking about 2018! WHERE has this year gone?! Today’s Five Friday Finds are all geared toward preparing for and staying organized in 2018. While I’m not the biggest fan of New Year’s Eve, I love the fresh start January 1 brings each year. It provides time to reassess, reevaluate, and recalibrate for an incredible year ahead. I’m not sure what 2018 will have in store for Grant and I, but I do know that we’ll be super organized to tackle everything life throws our way.
Yes, we’re talking BABIES today! Well, more specifically, NICU babies and their sweet parents. My friend, Megan, approached me with the idea to share a gift guide for parents who have a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit, and I was totally on board. For many families, having a preemie and dealing with all of the emotions of parenthood, child’s health and well being, and life itself can be so overwhelming. For people who want to help, they sometimes don’t know where to start. I was certainly in this group as I tried to support Megan the best I […]
