I am starting a new Motherhood Mondays series on Instastories next week and in preparation I had so many questions from readers about what kind of chores my children do and how that looks in our family. Today I am excited to partner with The Kid Who Can to share those with y’all along with some great products that make introducing chores to children simple and fun.
One of the most frequent questions I get during the holidays is how much to give the people that help us all year round. So here’s a handy graphic to help you. (Please pin it for future reference!). And keep reading for a Q & A about this subject
I’m thrilled to share our family’s Christmas cards this year and how easy it is to order cards from Dixie Design, an online source for refined, ready-made stationery that y’all are going to love just as much as I do! Plus, a few helpful etiquette tips as you think about your family’s card this year.
Today, I am excited to partner with a company that is close to my heart. Family Treedition has so many cute ideas for bringing special family traditions into your home. More importantly, their products point us (and our children!) back to the real meanings of the holidays we celebrate.
Happy Saturday! Since we are on the cusp of the holiday season I thought I would share some mom hacks/tips/insider secrets for making the holidays less stressful so you can focus on the more meaningful parts of the holiday (which is what it’s all about, right?!). Plus, a few Saturday sales.
A fabulous painting can add so much to a space. But how do you know where to start when trying to find the perfect piece for a room? I’m so excited to partner with art advisor, Jennifer Klos of Collector House, for today’s post. She’s answering all my questions about selecting and purchasing art. Plus, you’ll get a little tour of the Dallas Art Fair where art dealers and collectors from all the world converge (and where someone like me can only dream of buying a $300,000 piece of art!).
A few months ago I rode with my daughter in an ambulance, watching as two EMTs administered oxygen and medication to my lifeless seven year old. I remember stretching out my arm as far as I could from my jump seat to touch her, to give her whatever comfort I could as the driver raced through traffic to the nearest children’s hospital. It was during those next terrifying few days in the ICU that I realized I needed to write this post, one that I have meaning to write every since she was a baby. Whether you are a complete germaphobe, or have a laissez-faire (“It’s good for their immune systems!”) attitude toward germs, I hope you will consider this “thoughtful” approach when deciding to go out while sick or send your sick children to school.
