Leftover Halloween Candy Hot Chocolate 🍫

Before you think, eww, aren’t those candy bars way too old for use? Calm down, Karen. I’m just talking about the ones that have a long shelf life and have clearly NOT expired 🙂 Safety first, guys. On to the sweet stuff (and why you’re here)! So if your kids have special training in being…

Gift A Special Moment in Time

  This blog post is kindly sponsored by pictureframes.com. All thoughts expressed are my own. You wouldn’t believe I was a professional photographer if you walked into our house. It’s unbelievable how few photos I have printed and framed. I spend so much time creating beautiful images for my clients that I more than neglect to do the same for our family. I’ve been so convicted of that lately. I REALLY desire to have our special moments covering our walls.  Which brings me to my next point, I recently discovered pictureframes.com and was blown away by all of the options before me! I honestly felt like a…

WHO Takes Your Photos??

If I had a dime for every time someone asked me, ‘who takes your photos?’….

I found myself hating life when trying to use a tripod. The camera never focused on the area I needed…

Because I can completely relate. I even take it a step further and try to buy as many twinning sets for me and Avenleigh as often as I can. I’m pretty sure there won’t be another time in her life that she will be as excited to match with me as she does right now. No shame in my game, I take full advantage of that! Just recently…

Under The Covers

SO, over the holidays we did a thing. We switched up our room… again. Even though styling our home is unofficially like my life’s work (ha), we actually never got around to updating our bed. It’s taken us 11 years, guys! Started from the bottom now we’re here 🙂 In our mini makeover, we updated our bed…

As much as I’m pro ’embrace and love yourself’. I do believe part of that loving includes taking care of your skin as…
