Another year has come and gone, and I can hardly believe it. Is my son really two years old? That’s what he’s saying when we ask him, so it must be true. This year was such an important year, not only for Grayson, but for my family as well. We finally moved into our own …

Ah, the dreaded ‘Dinner Rut’. Does that happen to anyone else? Whether it’s convenience, sticking to your weekly grocery budget, or appeasing picky eaters– you make the same things for dinner each week.

By the time Thursday or Friday rolls around, I get a little lazy. The last thing I want to do is make another elaborate dinner, and have to deal with the dishes that come along with it. I tend to rely on quick, simple, and satisfying meals to get me through to the weekend, which …

*This post may contain affiliate links, read more about that here.* I get asked quite often “Do you really drink a smoothie every day?” We do! It may be challenging to get into the habit at first, but it just becomes second nature after a while. Smoothies are a great way to get picky eaters …

This post has been heavy on my heart to write for the last few months, but I honestly couldn’t find the words. I’m not even sure if I have the words now. It’s all been a whirlwind, a mix of not wanting to share this until I had all of the information, and also not …
