My husband and I have four young children. We are incredibly grateful that one of the ways the Lord grew our family was through adoption! Here are some of the ways our friends and family supported us and continue to support us now that our son is home!
Summer is the absolute best...am I right? But with kids running around aimlessly under foot it can get a little overwhelming, slightly monotonous, and totally out of control. In the (almost) six years of being a mommy I've figured out that this fam (okay...maybe it's just me?) thrives on routine. But when I thrive, I think my kids do too. And after years of a somewhat predictable daily routine, I can see that they find some rest and peace in knowing what to expect each day. There tends to be less complaining, less fighting, less begging for food, and just a general happiness. I dig it. So here is a little run-down of what a normal summer day in home looks like.
I love some fun makeup. Love. But I also love (read: need) it to be easy and quick. I don't want to forfeit something that brings a little happiness to my day and helps me feel ready to tackle all of my "to-dos" just because my time is limited. So I need something I can do in a matter of minutes, you feel me? Here goes! My daily eye make-up routine. 3 minutes, and you're done!
If there's ever a season of the year to stick to a capsule wardrobe, it's the summer! If you're like me you were a whole lot of shorts and tanks, with a few cute dresses and rompers thrown in. So here you go! A run down of 9 essentials to have in your closet this summer.
