Home Is Where the Heart Is

It's so hard to put yourself out there.  And it's so easy to feel like you're the only one who doesn't have it all together...especially with good ole Instagram where gorgeous photos are all over the place. When Gabrielle from Design Mom emailed and asked if she would feature our home on her "Living with Kids" series, I almost said no. I even replied back to her to make sure she had the right person. 

But then I decided that sometimes you have to say yes and take that risk. Sometimes you have to put yourself out there, crazy and all. So I spilled my heart and shared our home. And it was awesome. If you would like to get a peek into our happy home, hop on over to Gabrielle's blog. xoxo


Living for the weekend

We've declared that every weekend should be a three-day weekend. Anyone else agree? 
There's just something about that extra day that makes you feel like you're on top of things, plus some. My house is clean, the laundry is done and I didn't even have the Monday post-weekend blues. I love lazy days where we just sit around do nothing, but really everything. I love being us just being together at home. Home is our happy place and there really is no other place we'd rather be. Hope your weekend was full of love and happiness! xoxo

Around Here

Oh around here we have been busy. Oh so busy. 
The end of the school year is just so hectic.  It seems like the "summer" activities are starting to ramp up, while the end of year activities double too! We're managing to squeeze in as much family time as we can on the weekends. We're camping, hanging out, having block parties and more. It's busy, but it's a good busy.  

I've also been working like crazy on lots of projects and classes, which is good, but also adds to the craziness! Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines...  Excited to share more soon! Hope you all are doing well and have a great Friday! xo
