Kindness Advent – Day 16

Kindness Advent – Day 16

We had a change of plans for today. We were supposed to go watch my friend Danielle’s girls so she could have a morning out before her 4th baby was scheduled to arrive on Thursday. I met Danielle & her mom at a clothing store right after we moved to town. It turned out she attends The Church at Indian Lake…small world! She has […]

Kindness Advent – Day 15

Tonight, we hit up the local dollar store to collect some items for the homeless. Our church will be heading downtown Christmas morning to deliver the goods & we’re so excited to join them with our crew! You can always count on Jettaroo for a crazy pose…that kid marches to his own beat!;) They chose this jacket because it had a camo hoodie & “everyone […]

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Tonight, we rode around & looked at Christmas lights. We’ve been so busy that we haven’t done anything festive really, so it was nice & much needed family time! On our way out, we pulled through Starbucks & paid it forward to the car behind us. This was a win/win because we showed a little kindness & also got a […]

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

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

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! […]
