You know the drill…. Stress over coordinating outfits, wrestling the kids into clothes they may not love, and get everyone to pose together and smile and look at the camera AT THE SAME TIME…. But seriously. One photo, you just need one photo. No silly-ness – I once told my kids not to be themselves but to be who I want them to be. Ha! If you’re lucky, you end up with a whole lot more than one which is…

Ordering Household Basics Online is Life Changing

It wasn’t until a friend of mine went live on Facebook a few months ago, that I considered the possibility – and genius – of ordering toilet paper online. Her video was of her telling her kids the giant delivery was something for them. I laughed so hard when they opened the box to realize it was nothing more than toilet paper. Hahahahaha! Ah such a funny little trick to play on the littles and yes, I plan the same…

Jorie and the Magic Stones: A Book to Read with the Whole Family

I hardly give myself any time at all to read an actual book – I’ve learned the hard way more than a few times that nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING else gets done when I have my nose in one. I can’t even confirm that I shower or the kids get fed. Ha! I literally and completely lose myself within the pages. So as you can imagine, I have to be VERY careful when I choose to indulge. It’s also precisely why…

The Oil Diffuser Everyone Should Buy

I love love love my oil diffuser and have been wanting to get my kids each their own also, but wasn’t sure which oil diffuser to get. It can be overwhelming, don’t you think? So many companies now make them and the prices range from $30-$100 or more. I knew I didn’t want to spend as much as I had on mine, so I did one of my trusty Amazon searches to see what I could find, and within about 10…

How I’ve Simplified Using My Three Rules For Gifting

I’ve done it before, and I’m sure you have too. Bought things and then spent time regretting the increase of STUFF and MESS. It never brought us more joy and it certainly didn’t bring us more peace, so why did I do it? Several years ago, I clued in that for my daughter GETTING something was more important to her than HAVING it. In the store, she loved having something bought for her and then promptly forgot all about it once home.…

How To Survive A Rainy Day With Your Child – Guest Post

How to Survive a Rainy Day with your Child by Jeana Kinne Rainy Days are often very long and eventful in an enclosed area full of rambunctious preschool aged and toddler aged children.  The fact that you can’t go outdoors and are inside for many, many, many hours during the day can wear down any adult. Both at home and at school, children are awake and ready, as ever, to play! All of the research and information available that tells…

There Is No Such Thing As Balance

Balance.  The ultimate quest. The one thing we all seem to be in pursuit of. And something that’s been on my mind often, moreso since going back to work just over 5 years ago. Finding balance between the need to do things and the want to do things, and how I actually view the things in my life in terms of these two categories. For the past few years specifically, I’ve considered each opportunity with one specific phrase, What Do…

Wounded Healer ~ Finding My Passion As A Massage Therapist

I don’t get asked very often why I do what I do. People see it when they come to see me, they feel it. Not everyone can see themselves as a massage therapist and truth be told, 3+ years ago, I couldn’t either. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014 and it rocked my world. I began to view health in a completely different way and found myself going more for more of a holistic route in healing. UC…

Well That Was HAWKward ~ My First Brazilian Experience

The truth is, nobody talks about these things. The other truth is, this story is too good NOT to share. And because I tend to not have a filter in real life and in an effort to make this blog as true to me as possible, I’ve decided to adopt the same approach. {Almost} no filter. So here’s the deal: Getting a Brazilian wax is something I thought I would NEVER do. Bare is really not my jam. But for…

Ten Things You Shouldn’t Say To Your Vegan Spouse

I want a divorce. Unless this is an extreme case of bad timing, you probably shouldn’t threaten divorce with someone just wanting to change their eating habits. If the fact that they are going to be eating a plant based diet is that scary to you, perhaps they aren’t the issue 😉 Does this mean you are going to be a hippy tree hugger now? For years vegans were thought of as hemp loving hippies and while that may have…
