Fourth of July 2021

After such a busy weekend, I love taking the time to reflect, look at our photos, and thank God for all of our blessings. I bet most people would agree how awesome this past weekend felt! Our small town was packed with people, boats, and so much fun. I love seeing our town like that.... Continue Reading →

Pearl Of My Heart

It’s been a while! But I have a new project that I wanted to share, and one that I think you will like as much as we did. I’m always looking for more heartfelt gifts or projects to do. So when I was contacted by this awesome small shop to make a unique type of... Continue Reading →

Patience And Naps

Do you ever just need a hug? Or some time to rest your eyes? I’m almost thirty years old and sometimes I just need a hug, or a moment to myself to close my eyes and rest!

Sense of Calm

I look at this photo above and it honestly looks like we have it all together, but if I look closer, we had... Continue Reading →

I Was That Mom Today..

Well Happy Wednesday. What was supposed to be a little trip to the city with the kids, to make some returns and search for some house things, ended up turning into, well; just keep reading. We started the day with our usual breakfast at home. I packed a bag while the kids ate. Then we... Continue Reading →
