That was the question I asked myself. I’ve done projects in the past where I try to find a tiny slice of beauty during the pre-dinner hour. But in the morning? Before school? That’s the definition of crazy around our house. I’m still drinking coffee. The kids can take a while waking up. The light […]

A few weeks ago we got back from an amazing trip to Disneyland with our girls. We’d planned the trip for months and months and we all had an even better time than we thought we would! Our girls are 4 & 7 and it felt like the perfect age as they were big enough […]
