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.
Happy St. Nick’s Day! What is St. Nick’s Day, you ask? There is definitely a religious aspect to today’s holiday, but I am going to touch on the cultural elements of it that make today one of my favorite holiday traditions. Growing up in southeastern Wisconsin, it was like Christmas part one. St. Nick comes on the night of December 5th, filling shoes or stockings with small goodies – traditionally oranges, pomegranates, cookies, candy, or fruits. I remember going to bed really early in hopes of waking up really early to dig into my stocking. In my family, St. Nick […]
Hey y’all! Happy Friday! Are you stuffed to the brim after yesterday’s good eats? I hope your holiday was filled with happiness, joy, laughter, and love. I hope you find ways to be grateful every single day, because we are so very fortunate to live in this wonderful world. Changing topics, it’s been really fun to put together five of my faves each week. It makes me really think about what I use on a daily basis and what I recommend to you all. So, here are my 5 Friday finds this week! 1. Expensify – I use Expensify to […]
Happy Friday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT week?! So, how was your week? Mine was slow. In the past, I’ve noticed the week before any holiday crawls by… but then the week of the actual holiday flies! Same is true this year so far. What gives? Tell me, what are your Thanksgiving plans? Are you cooking? Making pies? I hope the weekend ahead is fun, festive, and relaxing! I thought it would be fun to start sharing five of my favorite “things” on Fridays again. These can be actual products, ideas, tips, tricks, organization hacks, recipes travel adventures, and more! […]
Hey, y’all! How’s it going? I’ve debated writing this post for the longest time. Is there ever a good time to “come back” to a blog? I want everything to be perfect but let’s be honest, there is no perfect, so we’re going to go with good enough. I took a little hiatus from writing around my birthday in April… and over 7 months later, here we are! Do you like the new design and layout? I finally have an actual logo and I love it. My amazingly talented friend, Caroline, designed it all for me. A lot has happened […]
