Rainbow Treat Bags {A Magically Colorful Favor}

Rainbow Treat Bags {A Magically Colorful Favor}

I’m loving all things rainbow-themed lately (it’s the result of Lisa Frank nostalgia brought on by the current magical unicorn trends  and, more obviously, having a rainbow baby).  So, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day this month, I’m posting a series of rainbow DIYs. And I’m starting the series with super easy rainbow treat bags! They’re… Continue Reading

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Since the kids have been bugging me recently (i.e. the past four years), I was inspired to make love bug valentines this year.

Let’s Get This New Year Started

Let’s Get This New Year Started

Goodbye 2016! It was a year with many happy memories, the year we welcomed our precious Winnie. It was also a rough year, filled with grief, anxiety, and lots of overwhelming about-to-lose-my-shit parenting moments. But we made it. I suspect 2017 will be just as challenging (if not more so). But again we’ll make it through… Continue Reading

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

Winter White Citrus Mint Sangria

I can’t believe it’s nearly 2017! Time to mix up this delicious citrus mint sangria to ring in the New Year. Mostly my drink preparation is limited to unscrewing a bottle of wine and pouring it into a glass (and usually I just tell my husband to do this for me). So this is my first… Continue Reading
