let's make life meaningful... 


It’s nesting time! I’ve been in baby mode lately getting all ready for this new bundle!! It’s been so long since the last baby I had some homework to do. I laugh because I’m always the first to tell new parents that you don’t need much when preparing for a new addition, but I’m finding […]

Baby Boom

We recently received an invitation from one of our favorite local organizations, Young Outdoorsmen United, to attend a shooting workshop at Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy. It was a new adventure that our family had never experienced and we immediately said yes to the incredible opportunity! Before I share our experience I want to make […]

Bass Pro Shops Shooting Academy X Young Outdoorsmen United

If there’s a staple in our summertime schedule it’s definitely swimming! We try to make time for it daily because it keeps the boredom at bay. Getting the wiggles out is a must when you have children and I find that going outdoors and granting them some free time each day gives us such a […]

Summertime Swim

We celebrated father’s day this month and it was a significant one after losing my own dad recently. Jared lost his dad at age fourteen so he has had quite a long while to ponder on the nature a father’s role brings into a family. To each of us, fatherhood is valued deeply. We’ve felt […]

If you’re anything like me you’re always envisioning getting more done. Unfortunately, I’m always falling short of my aspirations. Ha! I tend to think I can accomplish more than I actually can. Not only is this true in projects and goals but also in having access to the tools and resources to get there. Luckily, […]

Everyday Easy

My family went through a big life change this past year with my dad’s brain tumor. Our whole world was turned upside down and we were forced to face a lot of new and unknown territories. It’s of course not something anyone ever hopes to go through, but after painstakingly and patiently living it out, […]

A Day Away… Eureka Springs

Recently we’ve endured some challenging and heavy times. On top of losing my dad, we’ve faced so many other new changes and responsibilities. From the virus pandemic to social issues, not to mention the weight of expecting another baby, lots of things are heavy on our minds and souls. Jared carries a lot of this […]

Making Music

The spring/summer collection of Mabo got me again. I just adore their kids wear! The quality and style is seriously unmatched and I kinda love that they make clothes up to Dakota’s age. It’s so tough finding tween clothing that’s timeless. I also love that the things I have bought from them wash up so […]

Mabo… And Soon a Mini Mabo!

I try to bring something fresh into our space that inspires me from the season. This year I’m settling on adding a sustainable perspective. Rather than changing decor each season as a refreshment, I’m starting to think in a more timeless way. I’m searching for things that compliment the season but can also live on […]

In the midst of such an unusual time in our lives as we deal with staying home and social distancing I think we all find ourselves going a bit stir crazy. There’s no better time to designate a day or just listen to your needs and get lost from life a little. We’re fortunate to […]
