5 Ways We Make School Mornings Easier

September 17, 2019

This post was sponsored by PackIt. All opinions are mine. Raise your hand if you think the morning sets the tone for the entire day. *raises hand* I don’t think I’ve met a parent who doesn’t struggle to get everyone up and out the door on school days. Sometimes, it feels like no matter what we do or how early we get up, it’s still a cluster. I currently have a fourth grader, a preschooler, and the bus comes at…

Fall Home Tour 2019

September 12, 2019

I can’t believe I’m even talking about Fall when it’s still hot as Hades in Georgia. The highs are still in the 90s and I’m honestly OVER IT. That said, in the spirit of trying to manifest cooler weather (ha!), I pulled out some fall decor. Surely if I throw some pumpkin decor around the house, it will invoke a weather change, right? I plan to continue decorating this week, so I’ll continue to add to this post as we…

Summer Family Vacation To St. Simons Island, Georgia

August 14, 2019

Raise your hand if you have ever gone on a family vacation to St. Simons Island, Georgia?! Oh wait, you didn’t know Georgia had islands? I get that reaction a LOT. I grew up on SSI, so I commonly tell people where I’m from and they’re like… Georgia has a coast?! Georgia indeed has a coast (and a beautiful one to boot). We have been talking about going away somewhere before school started. We have truly never been on a…

You Only Get One Face: Let’s Talk About Skincare Over 30

August 10, 2019

This post is sponsored by Cetaphil®. All opinions are mine. I wrote a post once, detailing thirty things I learned by the time I turned thirty. Coming in strong on the list was my stern advice about skincare. I am willing to bet that the majority of women who are 30+ would tell you that they have regrets about the way they’ve taken care of their face and skin in their youth and maybe early adulthood. From not using the…

Best True Crime Podcasts (And More)

July 8, 2019

I asked my Instagram audience for podcast suggestions the other day and boy, did they come through. They know I love true crime and that it’s my genre of choice, so there were more suggestions for that category than anything. I got a bunch of requests to share the recommendations, so I thought it would be easiest to do it in a blog post. I’m going to start with my top ten personal recommendations that I’ve listened to and love…

Adulting 101: The Importance Of Life Insurance As Your Family Grows

July 4, 2019

This post is sponsored by COUNTRY Financial®. All opinions are mine. I wrote a little about life insurance a few weeks ago, but it’s such an important “adulting” conversation to have. It’s one of those subjects we tend to skirt around and avoid. No one wants to talk about death and hypothetical tragedy, but it’s so important to have all your ducks in a row. We recently had a death in the family and it was another reminder that loved…

Adulting 101: Why An Emergency Fund Is Important

July 2, 2019

This post is sponsored by COUNTRY Financial®. All opinions are mine.  Sometimes, I feel like I might be the poster child for why an emergency fund is important. Over the last two years, we’ve had two cross country moves, an unexpected job loss, a lot of unexpected expenses, and we recently bought a car. I have seen over and over how important a “cushion” in the bank really is. A few of these things that came up for us wound…
