Amongst the news headlines, fear of the unknown, and all that comes with COVID-19, how can we use this time to come together as a family and as a Nation? It starts in our homes. We must first come together in our homes. Join us by following our 4 fun, frugal family festivities to do […]
Every fall, since even before our kids were born, Matt and I would go to apple orchards, and pick our own apples to eat and devour in my favorite season of all here in Michigan. This tradition has continued on as we’ve had children, and it’s something we look forward to as a family every […]
You have a plan. A perfect plan. Then, someone forgets the family dish to pass. Becky spills the milk all over her brand new, paid-way-too-much-for Christmas outfit. Your kids are kicking, screaming at each other, at you, and at Lenord the fish who sees it all. There are a dozen presents still in Amazon boxes […]
Have you been in pursuit of the busyness this season, and feel like there is a weight you just can’t shake? Like you just may scream if you hear, “have a holly, jolly Christmas” one more time? Ever wondered if maybe there’s something more? You hear it on the radio, in stores, Hallmark movies, and […]
