5 Tips for Ethical Fashion

A few years ago I started making a conscious effort towards making more ethical fashion choices. I started by cleaning out my closet and designing my first capsule wardrobe.

Take it away, Erin! *****…

10 Hot Drinks for a Cold Day

When we lived in Arizona, winter was by far our favorite season. The time of year when it was finally cool enough to open the windows and wear jeans, even if only in the morning. We loved spending time outdoors, breathing in the fresh crisp(ish) December air. Then a few years ago, we moved to North Texas.

Life September 11, 2017

This post contains affiliate links   Hey everyone! It’s the second week of September, and these are three things I’m into right now. I carry this Ozark Trail 30 oz Tumbler with me wherever I go.

5 things to check out at the library other than books

Life July 20, 2017

Our family loves the library. We stop by at least once a week to grab a stack of books and a movie or two. For a while, that was the extent of our library interactions, but in the past few years, we have discovered that the public library can be a much bigger resource than we had imagined. These days we take advantage of everything our local library has to…

38 on my 38th

Life July 1, 2017

I turn 38 today. Man, that feels weird to say. I don’t feel 38. I feel like the 90s were 10 years ago. Didn’t Ross and Rachel just break up? Where did the time go? I’m spending today with my two beautiful kids. Jeff is on the road because it’s baseball season, and that’s the way it goes most years. So as I sit here drinking my coffee, I thought…
