our little slice of heaven

We began building a summer cabin in 2015 when Miss Violet was just 5 months old. Now she’s 3 years old and we are loving life. We sneak down to our new paradise every.single.chance.we.get. Available to rent someday! stay tuned!

just a reminder!

So here we go. This may be new info to you or maybe it’s a reminder. Bottomline: we all eat. And as mom’s (busy ones) it’s our job usually. You may HATE to cook. You may love it, but struggle. The struggle IS REAL. The mom guilt is REAL. You want to teach your children…

it’s the weekend

And I have a week ‘off!’  I heart being my own boss. The past couple weeks have been simply mad. MAD I tell you. Going to take the next week to recharge, reorganize and hit the ground running. A girl’s gotta do that every now and again. Have a great weekend!!

happy Labor day

a Labor Day prayer… Lord on this Labor Day, we thank You for the blessing of work. We ask for strength to complete each day. We ask for rest when we are weary. We ask Your guidance for everyone seeking employment, and we ask that You be with those whose faces we might never see…
