Every week (or so), I share the sweet little tidbits of my life: what we're up to, things that encourage me and are thought provoking, my favorites, new finds, recipes, or reads, and whatever fun randomness that I think will be inspiring!
And this week - I'm the featured blogger for H54F! (To celebrate, please see a special discount for my Etsy Shop for all of you towards the bottom of the post!)
So if you're new here - welcome! Here's a little more about me, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you - so please introduce yourself in the comments below!
Here's what I've been up to this week:
I posted our Summer Bucket List earlier this week, and we took no time checking off the first one: on Monday, we made trip to the Toledo Zoo in Ohio!
The weather was beautiful, the kids were awesome, and we were at the right place at the right time for so many of the animals - it was just an all around perfect day!
The Toledo Zoo is an amazing place to visit with your family. I'll be sharing more details about our entire trip, including Toledo Zoo tips and our fave exhibits, in an upcoming post!
|Why hello there, polar bear!|
This has been what our weekends have consisted of lately...and I don't mind one bit!
Call me crazy, but I seriously love landscaping! It ties in two of my favorite things: God's beauty in nature and color & design. It's hard work and it's messy, but it makes my heart sing!
What is one of your fave summertime activities? I'd have to add reading outside under the sun, watching the kids play in the yard, and so much more!

Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive
I just finished reading Why Just Survive When You Can Thrive by Keri from Living In This Season. Can I just say how much I really needed this book right now in my life as a mom?
There are so many one liners that really struck me - and stuck with me. It has truly motivated me to grow in my faith and vocation as a wife and mother. The book is launching on Monday - I highly recommend it!
The Shape of Our Homes
Christina from Waltzing In Beauty has started a new series about what makes a house a home - and it's way more than just decorating. The posts have been so good!
The Shape of Our Homes will be running over the next couple of weeks so be sure to check it out! (And don't forget to look for pics of her sweet little baby boy while you're there!)
Sweet Little Ones Shop (My Printables Etsy Shop!)
I have always loved design and creating art. And in little ways, I've always incorporated it into my life whether it was designing my high school yearbook, decorating my home, or making crafts with the kids.
So I am so excited to now have my own place where I can share my work with all of you! It's such a fun, creative outlet for me to share my art and my faith.
Please check out Sweet Little Ones Shop, and let me know what you think! What is your favorite print? What would you like to see in the shop?
I'm offering printable home decor right now, and soon I'll be adding party invitations! I can also do custom work! Please send me a message (email@example.com), and I can design a print just for you.
If you're a blogger, I'm also available to make graphics, blog buttons, printables, etc. for your blog or newsletter. Just send me an email to get started!
