Jem and I just got home from Disneyland and we’re so happy to be back with our boys! Of course, we loved the California sunshine and the magic of Disney, but home is where we belong. I managed to battle a cold the whole time we were away and it’s lingering so this week will […]

Take an Outschool Class For Free!

Whether you homeschool or not, Outschool is such a treat! Something you and your kids will totally love! Jemma took her first class a few weeks ago – “Disney Artist Mary Blair Inspired Castles” – and has since taken another … also about Disneyland :) Her list of favorites (you can “heart” classes that interest […]

Potty Training Now, Because …

Reid turned three recently and for awhile now, I’ve thought he has been ready to make the transition from diapers to handsome little boy unders. But, he hasn’t really asked. And, on my end, I haven’t really felt much worry about pressing it.  All over the internet you’ll find articles about the best time to […]

Word of the Year: Lean In

Ah. The new year. I love it. This time of year is just the best! One of my favorite traditions each January is to choose a word of the year. For 2019 I actually chose two. But they go together, so, in my mind, it’s one thought. One theme for the coming months. Dominic and I recently […]

Merry Christmas + a Happy New Year

Here’s a belated peek at our Christmas card and photos we had taken in September! But, more important perhaps is that the photographer who took our photos has an amazing giveaway going on. It lasts into January so if you’re local, pop over and enter!  Oh, Reid. Always so happy and laughing … until you […]

This + That

I kind of abandoned my blog this fall. Homeschooling and freelance has taken my time and mental energy and well, that’s the beauty of blogging … you can pop in and out as it suits your life season. I’m hoping the new year will bring some more writing here though, maybe even some more organization. […]
