    it’s friday!

    Today I’m sharing a peek at my week through my Instagram feed. This isn’t everything (you’re welcome) but it’s a good mix of all that we had going on this week. Happy Friday! I’ve been doing B-school for the last three weeks…I found quite a few large documents and videos that I had not done yet so I had a catchup day this week and spent the whole day learning and taking notes. Yay for a year of studs being added to the shop thanks to the request of a customer! We’ve been on an essential oil journey. My husband and I can be a few skeptics when it comes…

    5 tips on how to grow your business {social media}

    I feel like there are so many changes going on in the online small business world. Some are closing up shop. Some are changing their business model. Some are going to monthly clubs instead of an online shop. For some, having an online business is exciting, for others it’s emotionally and physically draining (not to mention discouraging). Today I just wanted to encourage you all that have online businesses, no matter what type they are. I’m by no means an expert. It’s taken me over 10 years to slowly get to where I am – generating a full-time income for my family. I have learned some things along the way…

    a peek at our week

    I remember this picture hanging in my maternal grandparents house while I was growing up (lots of you on Instagram had the same memory, so cool!). Now it’s hanging in my kitchen and I smile when I look at it. I’m excited that it’s with me, a lovely memory of my grandparent’s house. I finally ordered and got started on my 2013 Project Life album. The move has left me 6 months behind (and the fact that this edition JUST came out). I could not have pictured a better-for-me edition of Project Life. It fits me to a T and I’ve loved digging into it this week. This house is…

    my week {insta friday}

    Happy Friday everyone! Every once in a while I like to do a peek at my week for my non-instagram friends so here you go! Just a few highlights from our week around here. This past week while we were waiting for hubby to finish up a flight lesson we headed to our favorite park. It has huge towers and lots of slides – a kids park paradise. We love it there! One late night while hubby was working I popped in You’ve Got Mail and decided to get some studio work done too. I used to watch this movie nearly every Saturday night with my best friend Chrissy as…

    life right now

    Hey y’all – yes, I’m still alive. Right when I get back into the groove of things we pack up and decide to move. Hopefully this post will at least make it a bit more excusable why I’ve let my blog go this week! On Friday Dave got called out of town for work (he’s a corporate pilot) for about 5 days. It was very last minute and came two weeks before we move. I was stressed and cranky about it so my mom had me come over and we went for a pedi while the kids stayed with Papa. She always knows what I need. That night I felt…
