The Best Children’s Books

November 12, 2018

What are some of the best children's books you've read? We have some of our favorite classics like all of the books by Eric Carle, which are on constant rotation in our home. Even though we have quite a large collection of books, many are for little itty babies and we end up reaching for the same ten, over and over again. On a quest to find some of the best children's books out there, I asked all of you and got back some wonderful answers from mothers, grandmothers, teachers and from everyone in between  (as always - you guys are the best).

Friday Thought: “Glorifying the Past is the Thief of Joy…”

November 9, 2018

I know the title of this post is a little odd, but hear me out. The other day, I was listening to The Tim Ferriss Podcast and one of the episodes is taken over by a special guest, A.J. Jacobs. The title of the episode is "10 Strategies Be Happier Through Gratitude." I won't go into all of the strategies, but rather, one that really resonated with me: "Thou Shalt Not Have Nostalgia."

Next Project: Dining Room Gallery Wall

November 5, 2018

If you've been following me for a bit, you may know that a couple of months ago, we renovated our bathroom and kitchen. It was an enormous undertaking, especially while living in it (with a toddler), but we're so pleased with the results. I promise, the complete before and after posts are coming soon! Now, I'm ready for our new project: a dining room gallery wall. 


Happy Friday!

November 2, 2018

I'm still in a bit of shock that we're already in November. How did that happen so quickly? I'm currently binge watching The Office (never saw it in its entirety the first time around) and holy, it makes me so happy! If you haven't watched, it's such a feel good, laugh-out-loud show.

November 1, 2018

I'm not quite sure why I don't wear camel and red more often because it's truly one of my favorite color combinations.
