Blackberry Cobbler

We rolled in from Glacier on Saturday (can’t wait to share about our trip!) and immediately had to harvest all the things. Garden goodies, flowers, and gobs of blackberries. We ate a cup or two while picking – aren’t hot summer berries fresh off the bush just the best? – and then put four cups […]

How I’m Simplifying Our Back To School Routine

This post is sponsored by Danimals but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I love the changing of seasons. I’ve shared this before, haven’t I? Well, it’s true. I love when I turn the calendar and I know summer has arrived. All the adventures it will bring. Lazy days. Warm nights. Lots […]

Read This If You Or Your Child Have Long Hair

It’s been a month now since I chopped off my super long hair! I knew it was time for a trim, but it seemed silly to take off a few inches when I could go a little bit shorter and donate to Children With Hair Loss. So, I did! Thirteen inches … GONE! This is […]

This + That

I mean, that ^^^ is good, right? The perfect way to start the week … PAUSE, WAIT, TAKE IN, SLOW SAVOR. It speaks to my enneagram 1 heart. The summer tends to bring extra help my way. Thank you grandparents! So I’m intentionally scheduling as much one on one time with the kids as I […]

My Love Hate Relationship With Pumping

This post is in partnership with Aeroflow Breastpumps. I have a love hate relationship with pumping. There, I said it. No reason to sugar coat one of the less glamorous parts of motherhood, right? I mean, don’t we all hate being milked? I love that I have the opportunity to nourish my baby and maintain […]

Five Favorites

^^^ Last night on our girl’s date! We visited Nordstrom Rack and Anko, had dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory (mizithra for life!), and wrapped up at Target. Didn’t get home until 11pm; Jem is totally a night owl like her mama. Speaking of being a night owl. I just popped a bag of popcorn. […]

My Favorite Summer Dress

It seems that everyone keeps finding the best clothing pieces on Amazon and as much as I have searched, I have yet to find anything I can’t live without. Well, except for this swimsuit … and now, this classic black dress! This little black dress is the perfect throw on and go piece. Super comfy, […]

A Peek At Jemma’s 2nd Grade Curriculum

My girl, my homeschool guinea pig … she’s on to 3rd grade now! Jemma was amazingly diligent in her studies this year. I think she knew that adding Max into our schooling mix was a new feat for me and she stepped in to help often while staying super focused on her own work. It’s […]

A Peek at Max’s Kindergarten Curriculum

Hip hip hooray, another school year is complete! This was my first year homeschooling two children and I was mega nervous about juggling two with different needs and different curriculums; especially because I’m still in the beginning years of homeschooling and have yet to land on what I love most. But, every year I learn […]

A Night In the Sky at High Trek Adventures AND A GIVEAWAY!

Just 20 minutes north of Seattle near the new Paine Field in Everett you’ll find High Trek Adventures. The aerial rope and zipline course is impressive and incredibly safe. A real adventure for anyone who wants to spend a few hours in the air. With three ziplines and 60+ challenges across 3 tiers of rope […]

Our 2018-2019 School Year Family Read Aloud Books

After stumbling across the Read Aloud Revival blog and podcast and reading Read Aloud Family I knew we needed to read more books together. We have gobs of books. And the kids are always reading or listening. But all of us together? It wasn’t a frequent practice. Read Aloud Revival convinced me that nothing but […]
