Valentine’s Brunch

This weekendΒ we had a little Valentine’s brunch, a fun morning with some of our favorite girls & lots of heart shaped balloons. You know we love any excuse for a celebration! It was super simple & laid back, and messy of course, because I couldn’t tell the girls no when they spotted powdered donuts that morning at the grocery store. I made this overnight raspberry & cream cheese french toast bake, it was so easy & such a huge hit!Β We will definitely make it again, a perfect breakfast to prepare ahead of time if you have guests staying. We made some festive mimosas & the girls entertained themselves for hours sorting candy conversation hearts. Who knew they were so much fun?

The best part? These balloons will be floating around the house all week.

We have made it our goal to find one way to spread LOVE in some way, every single day in February, we would love it if you join us. Today might be a good day to hug a Falcons fan. πŸ˜‰ Hope you have a happy week. XO

 

Mini Style // Valentine’s Day

Yay! We are only a few weeks out from Valentine’s Day and we have already been pulling out all the heart shaped things!!! Harper is especially excited to celebrate this since it is just before her birthday that she has been “waiting all year for…” We have gone to tons of birthday parties lately & it has been so funny listening to her try to understand why kids that are younger than her have a birthday before her, I am pretty sure I had this same question when I was little! πŸ˜‰ I love Valentine’s Day and all of the happy, pink things that come along with it!

How cute is the unicorn sweater & those heart patch tights?! They’re my favorite!! The girls rocked some of their Valentine’s Day gear for our trip to the park & visit to the chiropractor this morning, which warranted cake pops after since we ran out of coffee at home & had to make a pit stop for some on our way home! πŸ˜‰

Hope you all are having a LOVE-ly week so far! XO

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!! I hope you all had a wonderful week with friends & family. We had family staying with us for the last few days, we had SO much fun with them and the girls were seriously on cloud nine having their cousins sleep over every night. We had the most laid back (and lazy) NYE ever, it rained almost the whole week so we made do at home with lots of fun meals, board games & lounging in front of the fireplace.

I am always optimistic about a new year, a fresh perspective & a feeling of restored energy to make changes. 2016 was a big year for us, I haven’t talked much about it on the blog, but I spent the majority of the year not feeling like myself after I stopped nursing Claire and went on birth control (multiple different types, pills, IUD, bleh!). In late Fall I realized my body just can’t handle them, and finally started feeling normal again just before the holidays. The move was also a huge change for us, we spent most of Spring & Summer prepping to sell and our home didn’t really feel like home anymore, then after moving into our new house,we jumped right into renovations, back to school & Halloween shortly after. Things are still out of place just about everywhere, we have bare walls, half finished projects & storage boxes everywhere. It was a messy year. Our goal for 2017Β focus on what is important, our health and our family.

This starts with getting our home in order so we can create healthy habits & happy spaces.Β I plan to dive right back in to one of my favorite books The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. We are in desperate need of organization & de-cluttering and this book really does work wonders if you follow all of the steps!

I want to make more time for adventuring with the kids, more fun weekends away, day trips to do fun things & saying yes more to all of their silly requests. Even if that means jumping on the trampoline in the rain or road tripping to meet family at an airbnb somewhere for the weekend.

I want to take more risks with my business, focus more on the things that I love and cut out things that I don’t. We are bringing real prints to the shop this year, along with tutorials & DIY ideas for printing the digital downloads. I also want to create more outside of just chalk, more hand lettering & painting to come!

More memory making, less social media. More new recipes, less donuts. More date nights, less obligations. More presence, less multitasking. More praying, less worrying. More intention, less clutter.

MORE LOVE, less of everything else.

We are always on board for a fresh start, and I couldn’t be happier to do it along side all of you. Thank you for all of the support and kindness you have shown us, we are so grateful & excited for everything that is to come!! XO
