Five things - If it’s a holiday Monday where you are, I hope you’re enjoying the day. My cold’s got the best of me so I’ve been pretty ineffective all-round today but I do have some highlights from our adventures over the past few weeks. We had my son’s birthday, Mother’s Day and my daughter’s birthday all in […]

Inside April’s Glossybox - I received the April Glossybox in exchange for an honest review. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

It’s a limited edition! The Book Lovers Box from Sweet Reads Box 😍 - I received the Book Lovers Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

May TBR - “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” — Groucho Marx 😂😂  May is a busy time with the kids’ birthdays, Mother’s Day, and my mother-in-law visiting so I’ve pared down this month’s TBR to what I think is a manageable stack. I’ve got some […]

Currently coveting - And suddenly it’s Friday! I hope you’ve had a good week. Wednesday I put this egg-cellent iron-on patch on an Old Navy cardigan that has seen better days and I’m still so happy with it!

You’ve got MAYL 💌 + A giveaway! - For a long while I was big on picture frames. Then candle holders. Now bud vases.
