Fruitfull & Fascinating Reads: Week 1

F&F1I love sharing good content with others. That’s the entire point of blogging and social media-right?

Each week, I’ve decided to round up a list of articles/videos/music I’ve enjoyed and share them with you! It’s as simple as that. It would be no differerent than what I would do if you and I went out for a coffee and some good chit-chat. (Both sound pretty amazing right now!)

Have an article you think I’d enjoy? Share it in the comments below! I’d love to check it out! Continue Reading

My Reflections of a Rough 2014 (I still managed to find the blessings among the chaos)

There are so many chances to create memories with our littles, yet it gets wasted on the mundane and unimportant junk. For example-car rides. Typically if it’s just me in the car with the kiddos, I don’t say much because I like the just “be with my thoughts”. I decided to change this. I took my daughter out for our new monthly bookstore trips and we talked the entire time. She’s only 5 but she shared some things with me that made me feel like I was talking with a friend. There was so much peace in that vehicle I felt like I could have just driven around for hours. Definitely a beautiful moment. Continue Reading
