wreath wall 3 ways

If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby you’ve seen their crazy cheap boxwood wreaths this time of year. They’re so classic and always festive – so if you want to rethink a classic try this easy installation out! I used 3M strips and 7 wreaths (or less!) in a few different ways. Let’s check them out: Giant Wreath. In my dreams I had a 12 inch wide red ribbon tied in a huge bow in the corner. Why does no one make 12 inch wide ribbon where I live? Envision it with me. Next, giant Christmas Tree of wreaths. I … Read more

new traditions

In partnership with the Elf on the Shelf. I read somewhere, that in families, tradition gives children a sense of belonging. It made me cry. It is truly all one of my greatest hopes as a parent, to always create a place that my kids belong. I know so many of you are in the same boat, when you come from a split family it can feel like you don’t know where that is. Or maybe everyone in your family is spread far and wide and there’s not really a “home base.” Or maybe there is tension between a parent … Read more

DIY Internet Safety with Amazon Fire

End of Year: Emily

This year FLEW by! We went around the table the other night at dinner and did our typical “best and hardest” where we all tell each other the best thing and the hardest thing that happened to us that day, except this time we did the entire year. Every single one of us said Raleigh for the best thing of 2016. He has been such a blessing to us all, and has brought so much joy and happiness. My friend Alison of the Alison Show said it best when she said her baby was proof that some people bless your … Read more
