You might have read some of my “What I Learned” posts here recently. I enjoy linking up with Emily at Chatting at the Sky, reflecting back on what big and small things I’ve learned each month, and reading what others are learning in their lives, as well. This month, Emily is encouraging us to look…

A Prayer for a Busy Day

Dear God, Today is so busy. I have a long list, a lot of distractions, and a feeling of being overwhelmed. Yet as I snatch a few minutes to pray and commit the day to You, I don’t want it to be just a box that I check off. In the midst of all the…

December Goals

Ladies, I really hope I did better on my November goals than my October ones. Remember how I kinda crashed-and-burned on keeping any of my goals in October? That was embarrassing. Anyway, let’s review the anticipations set for November, see how it went, and then set some fresh goals! Are you with me? Here are…

I recently shared a few money-saving tips that I used for planning our first anniversary trip. The trip was last week, and girls, it was so wonderful! Hubby and I don’t have children yet, so it wasn’t that we needed a vacation to “get away” from kids or a crazy-busy lifestyle…. but still, it was…

Pretty much every day.), seeing the beautiful west coast and the vast Pacific Ocean, touring the local vineyards, wearing a cute dress…

What I Learned In October

October was an eventful month around here! Somehow, it’s already the end of the month, and time to link up to Emily Freeman‘s monthly “What We Learned” link party. Here we go! 1. Rather than learned, I was reminded that I am terrible at crafty projects! I should have known better, but I always come back to…

October Goals!

Goals are healthy, right? I’ve had and still have a lot of goals in life. Don’t we all?! But I’ve found that sometimes our ambitions aren’t realistic or achievable until you break them down into timelines and even specific action steps. So I might have a goal to build up this blog with lots of posts and make…

Homemade Face Wash

This year, I’ve been experimenting with some homemade, more natural household items. This face wash has been one of my favorite successes so far! I love makeup remover face wipes. They’re quick, simple, and travel well, and are so much easier than washing your face with soap and water! But they’re also expensive! And as we…
