Our Family Christmas at Orient Bay Last month’s Christmas trip was just THE BEST. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a few snapshots here and there on my stories. This was our second annual “White Sand Christmas” and I regret nothing! Yes, I LOVE Christmas with family at home. But for my family […]

2019 Year in Review

Oh hey Friday! You snuck up on me there. Recovering after our week long road trip to North Carolina and back has taken a lot longer than I anticipated. This week officially beat me. I have been very MIA from the online world the past few weeks. I am not sure why, but I had […]

Finding Your Why

This is something that has been on my mind a lot lately, and I am a work-in-progress. So, this post will be more of a commentary on a thought I had, not so much a solution for it…yet. Here’s what I’ve had an internal struggle with: the idea of minimalism and having small children are […]

My Love Language Ruined My Kid

If you are not yet familiar with the lingo related to adoption, a home study is “an assessment of prospective adoptive parents to see if they are suitable for adopting a child.” Right now, I am wishing I would have looked up this definition before our actual meeting with the social worker, because I did […]
