So I recently discovered the Waterlogue app and I am addicted. I’ve even Waterlogued my cat! I dug up these photos I took of some flowers from my flowerbeds last year and I love the way they look Waterlogued so much that I had to share with you! How perfect is this for spring?? Enjoy! [Read more…]
I love reading with my kids. It is probably my number one favorite thing to do with them. I know it doesn’t promote physical fitness and an active lifestyle, or creativity, or social skills. But reading and a love (or at least an appreciation) for books is such a huge gift. There are children all across the world who don’t have access to books, and even if they did their parents are unable to read to them. It is a simple gesture, to sit and read with your child, but shows them love and builds bonds that will last a lifetime. [Read more…]
If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, or like my Facebook page, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve got gardening on the brain! We started our 4×8 square foot garden a couple years ago and I’m super excited to get going on it again. We’ve still got a good 4-6″ of snow on the ground, but it’ll be gone soon and it’ll be time to get our hands in the dirt.
For the longest time, I did meal planning monthly. I noticed that the fewer times I went to the grocery store each month, the less I spent. I am so bad about grabbing things NOT on my list because they are on sale or because they just look good (usually the latter)! So I would plan all of our meals for the entire month and do my grocery shopping the first and third weeks of the month. On my first trip, I’d get all of the dry and non-perishables for the month plus fresh foods for the first two weeks and on my second trip I’d get fresh foods for the last two weeks of the month.
Today I am sharing my first free printable. I love printables for decorating because they are inexpensive and easy to change out with the seasons. They also save on tons of natural resources because mass amounts of printed artwork is not being manufactured in China and then shipped to your nearest big box store.
For the record, I also love buying original or reproduction artwork from individual artists and boutiques that have relationships with artists and artisans.
But printable artwork is a much more affordable option if those other options are not within your budget.
