Kindness Advent – Day 13

Kindness Advent – Day 13

Meet our dear friends, The Stamper Family… They came into our lives about six years ago & we have had the privilege of walking beside them since then. Leslie quickly became one of my favorite people. She is a nurse, so I called her with every fever & cough. She is also my crunchy friend who introduced me to cloth diapering […]

Kindness Advent – Day 12

This afternoon, we baked cookies for my mom’s neighbor, Ms. Edna. Ms. Edna has lived across the street for as long as I can remember. She lost her husband earlier this year & I know it will be a tough holiday for her. She loves watching the kids play & it thrilled her when we knocked on the door with warm goodies […]

Kindness Advent – Day 11

When we were planning our advent calendar, we knew we would be in the middle of renovating the house. We also knew that we were on a limited budget, so we thought, “Why not make some gifts and send them to some special people?” After all, we do have a small business called Song and Story Millworks, right? Back in the […]

Kindness Advent – Day 10

The other night, I got a message from a buddy of mine from high school asking if our kindness advent was full. He went on to ask if we would consider swinging by a local animal shelter to show some four legged friends a little love. Thomas helped me so much when our dog Riley went missing (all the way from Oklahoma), so […]

Kindness Advent – Day 9

Kindness Advent – Day 9

Last week, my best friend from college, Lindsay & her husband Jon celebrated their 10th anniversary. He recruited us to make a custom piece & I love what Aubrey came up with! She’s from Marietta, GA & he hails from Florida but they met & planted their roots here in Tennessee! This morning, these crazy cats helped us package & ship lots […]

Kindness Advent – Day 8

This afternoon, we headed over to the church offices to show a little love & deliver some coffee goodness. Kindness elves with caffeine in tow… Pastor Matt is cracking me up with this pose & stone cold face. The rest of the bunch was all smiles…especially that gorgeous lady on the left! (aka my Madre!;) The Church at Indian Lake is where both […]

Kindness Advent – Days 6 & 7

Kindness Advent – Days 6 & 7

We were having some technical issues last night, but it looks like we’re back up & running today! Gotta love technology. Yesterday, we made a special delivery to the Johnson Family. Lindsey is an amazing photographer who recently did a family session for us. She captured this season of our lives so perfectly…I cannot wait for you to see them! […]

Kindness Advent – Day 5

Today was a busy one! We’ve been flooded with orders this week…thanks to those of you who shared our sale on Monday. We really appreciate the support & love! I delivered these chromatic arrows to Molly this morning for her two little darlings. Can you see her tiny tot in the bouncy seat on the counter? How cute is that? […]

Kindness Advent – Day 4

Kindness Advent – Day 4

For today’s advent, we took some friends a recipe for dinner with all the ingredients. The Allisons are a busy family…they pastor a church, both work & have 3 kids at 3 different schools. It’s hard to fit in a home cooked meal when you’re on the run, so we wanted to make it easy on them. Isn’t this pretty? I […]

Kindness Advent – Day 3

Kindness Advent – Day 3

This morning we set out to spread some kindness at our local hospital. It just so happens that my brother-in-law (aka Uncle Michael) works there, so he joined in on the fun. I love this one! I always wish I could see people’s faces when they find the note! Michael checked in for us a few times. He said a lot of […]
