I asked on Instagram for your Tween girl’s favorite books to read and promised I’d share the results! SO many good ones I’ve never heard of and ALL have amazing reviews online! Check it out! One I missed after this post was made were the “I Survived” books (boys LOVE them but there are a few about girls specifically too, not that it matters necessarily.)

rendezvouz box

Get 20% off your first date with SMALLFRY! Another awesome gift idea for you guys today! Even through our crazy year Russ and I never let date night slide and it was really the only thing holding us together at times!

This is where Rendezvous Box comes … Read more

be kind and cozy

We have had so many amazing acts of kindness from the people in our new town it really has blown me away! Even my kids can’t help but notice which made me realize we really haven’t done much to be kind and helpful others in awhile! We were so turned inward trying to get our own tasks taken care of we lost that service oriented element! As we get closer to the holidays I really want to shift our focus off of ourselves and give back! Whether it’s raking leaves, taking trash cans back for neighbors, shoveling snowy walkways, or … Read more
