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…

Finding Gratitude Amidst The Heartbreak

Last summer, while on our way back from a friend’s house, this sweet boy initiated a conversation that both warmed and broke my heart all at once. He talked about all the people and living things we’d lost over the years (his grandpa 8 years ago, our cat Mr. Bella about 7 years previous, my dad almost in early 2017, and of course more recently our original family unit plus our pets Axel, Salem, and now Malibu too). We held hands…

23andMe ~ My Life Upside Down

It was the only thing I wanted for Christmas, the DNA kit from 23and Me. I’ve always been curious about my heritage and now there’s a way to find out. But more than that, there’s even a way to be connected to others who share your same DNA. I personally know a few people (my mother included) who have discovered previously unknown family members as a result, which is so amazing though I often joke that their slogan could be:…

Ten Blessings From 2017

I’ve made no secret that 2017 was an incredibly difficult year for me and while I completely believe in being open about our struggles too, and will continue to be, I’m also a huge believer that gratitude and putting forth an energy of positivity is the real secret to happiness. So I’d like to take a minute and reflect on the past year with this in mind and bring you 10 blessings I received/experienced in 2017 {in no particulary order}:…

The Ultimate Taco Dip

Several years ago I couldn’t decide whether to make my usual taco dip or have a taco (I had leftover taco meat in the fridge)…so I decided to mix the two. And oh my heavens….the result was absolutely scrumptious and became a repeat *offender* in this house!!! I took it for a girly night and got rave reviews – it is seriously soooo good! My usual taco dip recipe – Layer: Refried Beans Guacamole (recipe linked below) Mixture of 2…
