• 💕 I fully believe this. If we teach, love and strengthen our own families...it's only logical that we will be sending out love and strength into the world. ⁣
-⁣
Obviously our kids have their own agency and no matter how much we teach them to make good choices, they will still inevitably make some wrong choices. We definitely give them a better chance of changing the world for the better if we focus on our families first. 👨‍👨‍👧‍👧. ⁣
-⁣
This world has a lot of scary stuff in it...but a LOT of good too.💞 Teach them to see the good, teach them to serve, to love and to look outside of themselves.🤝⁣
-⁣
What are some ways we can teach our children to do this, so that we can indeed change the world?⁣

  • When is the last time you made something just for you? Not because you needed something pretty for Instagram...but something just because you wanted to create?💕 I'm not very good at doing stuff just for me. Talking with other friends, I think it's pretty common for women to always be doing for others...or for validation. ⁣
-⁣
Fridays are my day for doing stuff for me, and do you have any idea how hard that actually is? 😳 It's so easy to say yes to other people's requests, or work on a little something for my blog, or run errands for my kids. When I make it a priority to just take a few hours for me...it's almost uncomfortable. Have you ever felt that way?⁣
-⁣
My goal is to LEARN to have me time...that's actually me time. Create something just for me, even if I just throw it away later, dance in my kitchen to my guilty pleasure 90's pop music or go sit at a lake all by myself and read a fiction book that has nothing to do with bettering myself or my business. At least once a week, devote a few hours to having fun, doing things I enjoy...without worrying about anyone else. I don't think it's selfish. I think it's probably the most important thing I can do for everyone I love. ⁣

How do you enjoy me time?⁣

  • 🤣 Isn't it the truth that when we look our best, we see no one, and when we just got done with our workout and are a sweaty disgusting mess...we see literally every person we've ever met? 🤦‍♀️😱🤷‍♀️⁣
-⁣
In other truths...all of the eggs in my house are currently hard boiled, so I'm gonna need to go get some more. 🐰⁣
-⁣
Anyone else have a fridge full of colored eggs because their husbands bought every variety of @officialpaaseastereggs kits...because they all looked so fun? Just mine? Sometimes I'm pretty sure I married a man child. 😂 It's all good, we had a super fun time coloring 5 dozen (no lie) eggs last week.⁣

  • What is your home decor style? My house is a fixer upper that we bought 5 years ago...at least that's the thought I went into it with! 🤣 My husband thought we were buying a newly renovated house. Silly guy.⁣
-⁣
The previous owner bought it as a flip and went in and put in builder grade EVERYTHING into it and made it livable...but not cute. I started making plans and ripping things out just a couple weeks after moving in. My husband quickly got on board with the house projects, because he's the more practical one. I have the visions and he has the skills. Luckily we work well together, and he likes the farmhouse style as much as I do. Our house has become my favorite place to be. Nearly every room has been lovingly thought out and made to work for our family. It's not big, in fact many would say it's small, but it's ours and I love it. 💕 ⁣
I haven't shared many spaces lately...what room should I share next? Everything but our master bedroom and the bathrooms are done and we're working on that! 🔨⁣

  • "Your home should tell the story of who you are, and be a collection of what you love."-Nate Berkus⁣
-⁣
I feel SO strongly about just this. Long before Marie Kondo was rocking our worlds with her amazing methods, I was always curating my home like I would a museum. Decorating and redecorating has always brought me joy. Getting rid of clutter and things that don't fit quite right...may make me even happier! 🤣⁣
-⁣
I've had friends tease me a bit about my love of home decor because I am always changing something and decorate for every holiday. I don't let it bother me though, we all want beauty around us. My home is where I put that effort, some put more effort into their clothing, or their kids clothing, spending extra time on their hair or makeup, or creating any kind of art...but we all do it, it's in our makeup. We are children of the Creator of the Universe! We are literally wired to create and to seek beauty. When we take the time to create (even if that's by decorating our mantel each month) we feel more like who we REALLY are, we see a glimpse of our true selves. Our glorious, creative, amazing selves.⁣

Where are you creating or looking for beauty today?⁣

  • Easter is this weekend! I love Easter so much! It's a beautiful opportunity to reflect on the life and love of our Savior...and eat the most delicious chocolate egg shaped candy. Yup! That is a VERY good week! 😍⁣
-⁣
This little gift idea is maybe the easiest way to cuten up a gift bag EVER! Hot glue a pom pom to a little paper bag to make a bunny tail 🐰 and fill it with some (aforementioned delicious egg shaped) candy and some tissue paper! Give these to your class at church, parties at school, use them as place settings on your Easter table...the possibilities are endless!
