Kindness Advent Day #6

Kindness Advent Day #6

This one’s always a crowd favorite…especially on a beautiful day like today! I intentionally scheduled this on the weekend so that my sister & her crew could join us. There’s a cul-de-sac in town that 4 or 5 families from our church live on (including my niece’s boyfriend), so we decided that would be the perfect spot! When we got there, […]

Kindness Advent Day #5

Kindness Advent Day #5

Today was full of Christmas lists, cleaning, packaging shipments, hide & seek in the woods…& cleaning some more. By tonight, we needed to get out of this house! Gigi joined us for our kindness mission. Let’s just be honest here…she is our very own dose of kindness every time she walks through the door! When I say I don’t know what we’d […]

Kindness Advent Day #4

Kindness Advent Day #4

Today we baked for some of our neighbors. One of my mom’s best friends just so happens to live 3 houses down. Her sweet husband just underwent heart surgery, so we thought they could use a little chocolate chip cookie love. I really let the kids own this baking experience. It’s definitely the messier option but it’s the only way […]

Kindness Advent Day #3

Kindness Advent Day #3

This kindness mission is always a bit tricky. You have to time it just right, order the hot chocolate extra-hot & then pray the bell ringers are at their post when you arrive! Our first stop was Hobby Lobby & alas, no bell ringer. Boo! But Sam’s & Walmart did not fail us. These folks were happy to see us coming with warm, […]

Kindness Advent Day #2

Kindness Advent Day #2

Thank you so much for all the love yesterday! We’re thrilled you like the new song & can’t wait to get the EP in your hands (or your inbox…whatever!;) This morning, we threw down a little homemade bookmark love. My kids are craft crazy, so they were happy to oblige! I was having a conversation with a friend (who also homeschools) a […]

New Music Monday + Kindness Advent Day #1

New Music Monday + Kindness Advent Day #1

We’re bringing you a little New Music Monday on Tuesday because it’s day #1 of our kindness advent & we wanted to start this thing out with a gift for our faithful readers! I wrote the bridge & chorus of this song last year. We were living with my mom & so much was up in the air and it just […]

A Cave, Small Business & Kindness Prep

A Cave, Small Business & Kindness Prep

I hope you all had a nice, relaxing Thanksgiving with family & friends. We shared a huge feast with Aubrey’s fam on Thursday. Then yesterday, we hosted my family at our house with a nacho bar, a pretty competitive game of football and crawling through a cave. What…you didn’t do that with your folks!?;) Last week, the boys were out exploring […]

New Music Monday

New Music Monday

Hello, friends! I hope you are having a fabulous Monday & if not, well…it’s almost over! We’ve had a lot of talks lately about how important music is to us & how we don’t want it to take a back seat to everything else. I’ve also had good intentions of blogging more consistently, so we decided to just combine our efforts! (We even put […]

school table project

school table project

Before we started school, we were trying to figure out where to create a space for the kids. Of course they could use the dining room but we only have one table & I could just imagine it being covered with papers, books & crafts and us eating on the floor (not that that’s ever happened at our house!;) I wanted them […]

Beet Monster Juice…

Beet Monster Juice…

Aubrey & I decided to start a juice cleanse this week. We just came out of a crazy busy season of moving, renovating, moving again & eating out way too much in the process! I was feeling way off track & in need of a major detox! Realistically, we all have times in our lives that priorities get switched around for whatever reason […]
