A Word to Live By

A friend of mine introduced me to the concept of choosing a word to live by for the year. She shared how after much thought and prayer, the word “simplify” was laid on her heart last year, so she opened her heart to what “simplifying” would bring to her life. I began to notice she would reference the word often as she made decisions throughout her week. I loved it.

I am not a big goal setter or someone who sets New Year’s resolutions, but I’d like to live more intentionally. Meaning that I don’t want to miss out on life as life goes by, but to live in it more fully, more open, more present. {read more}

Magformers – These magnetic tiles were recommended to me from a friend a few years ago and they are a main staple in our toy box that all ages enjoy. They offer endless creative play. When not building with them, my kids like to scatter them along the floor and go “fishing” for them with something metal. They are pricey, but worth it. Today most sets are marked down, some almost half off the regular price. {read more}

How to Make a Solar Night Light

Today I’m sharing the easiest little DIY project that you can do with your kids. I came up with this solar night light idea because my four-year old daughter is scared of the dark and we’ve tried so many things to help her sleep at night, but she still sleeps with her bedside light on. I don’t think this is good for her so we worked together to make a little solar night light that she could put on her nightstand instead. She had so much fun putting it together and of course my boys wanted one too. {read more}
