Minimalism with Kids

Happy December! I hope you have been enjoying the season as much as I have. :) It’s been two and half months now since I ended this marriage/parenting blog (wow, that’s a long time for me!) and much has changed since then. We’ve done some travelling and some amazing local events, had some things go right and others wrong. But … Continue reading

Blog Giveaways 101: Choosing the Product(s)

Blog Giveaways 101: Choosing the Product(s)

Have you ever wondered how bloggers get the products they offer in giveaways? Or how it all works? I always assumed that you had to be contacted by a company in order to be included in the giveaway world….that your blog had to be “discovered,” but it just isn’t (always) true. There are several ways that you … Continue reading

How I Spent My Week “Off”

How I Spent My Week “Off”

Then why the pain? … Continue reading

I’m Going to Ireland! The Swag Bag Blog Hop

“Swaaaag? What’s that?” “You don’t know because you don’t have any,” I said with a smile. This was a real (and extremely brief) conversation between my husband and me the other day. To be honest, I haven’t been totally clear on the meaning of swag because it’s used in so many different ways, but I’m still fairly certain that my … Continue reading

Ten Thoughts Tuesday (The High School Edition!!)

Ten Thoughts Tuesday (The High School Edition!!)

1. Maggie started high school this week!! We are still homeschooling, but it’s HIGH SCHOOL, people! Transcripts and report cards and “credits” – it’s so strange. But it’s fun too! She is, thankfully, very internally driven and does not need me to encourage her to do her assignments. :) 2. We’re doing something different this year with … Continue reading

Weekend Writing #6 ~ City

Weekend Writing #6 ~ City

Welcome! Each weekend this summer (June – August) I will be sharing a photo and then challenging myself and you to write a story, essay, or poem, in 200 words or less, using the photo I provide as the motivation. It can be as funny, thought-provoking, or serious as you like. In each week’s post, I will share my entry in block … Continue reading
