    FAVORITE SMALL SHOPS

    Shop small! Why? It’s simple… supporting small shops and local business owners is an easy way to know where your money is going. When a small shop makes a sale, the money goes to: 1. Cost of doing business (marketing, website maintenence, rent for brick and mortars, buying product, etc) 2. Paying employees or themselves (this puts food on other peoples table.. people you may actually meet and want to support). I love to know where my money is…

      Ah Thanksgiving… with toddlers… or young kids… sounds lovely doesn’t it? Well if you’re kids are anything like mine, you know; crazy, loud, obnoxious, rough, picky, silly, and I’ll say it… annoying. Yep, just when you pour yourself a glass of wine and sit down to eat your warm Thanksgiving meal, my kids will inevitably interrupt my entire dinner. Over the years, I’ve crafted and started to fine tune our holiday tradition to ensure I have a peaceful (and…

        THOUGHTS ON CBD

        Y’all… I have to let you in on a secret. I’ve never tried Marijuana. No gummy bears, no smoking no brownies… nada. After my loss and surgery, I was really struggling with falling asleep and anxiety. When someone suggested I try CBD for my anxiety and sleeplessness, all sorts of things ran through my mind. What was CBD? Isn’t this basically Marijuana? Would I get high from taking it? Would I be able to parent? Is this dangerous? So…

          THANKSGIVING BOOKS FOR KIDS

          If you’ve walked through a big box store lately, you may think it’s December with all the Holiday decor displayed. A home improvement store I was in recently even had Christmas music playing… now, don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas as much as the next guy but you know what else I love? THANKSGIVING!
          I feel like Thanksgiving is the poor forgotten stepchild. There’s a tiny little stand at the craft store with Thanksgiving items and there’s 4 aisles…

              MOM STYLE : DRESSES AND SNEAKERS

              Let’s talk mom-iforms for a bit, specifically dresses and sneakers… I love love love fancy dresses and high heels but that’s not always practical as a mom chasing around little kids. I’ve learned over the years how to incorporate things I love into my mom uniform so I can love what I’m wearing but still be able to keep up with growing twins.
              Besides a good pair of jeans and a tee or sweater, I love to pair a dress…

              Amazon Favorites : Wooden Toys

                WOODEN TOYS : AMAZON PICKS

                Is there anything better than a good old fashioned wooden toy? I don’t think so. My favorite part about wooden toys is that they’re nearly indestructible. They don’t take batteries so they never “die” or need maintenance. I love how they really encourage imagination too. Wooden toys have endless possibilities when it comes to how they are played with. Blocks can be used to build cities or castles or make obstacles for jumping over and balance boards can become…
