Schools are closed. Everything is closed. Everything is cancelled. Now, families are faced with the struggles of entertaining and educating their children, while staying home to safely isolate. That is why my daughter and I came up with this fun list of twenty (that's right, 2-0) fun ideas to pass time at home this next month or so, while we do the right thing and allow for situations to return to normal. Let's dream, get creative, and have fun!
I think goal writing is so important for many reasons. It keeps you accountable to yourself. Writing things down can help declutter your mind. It also gives you a huge sense of accomplishment as you are able to check things off your done list too! I write my goals down every new year, so this year I am simply sharing them with you. Here are 20 things I plan to do to make 2020 an amazing year!
This was our first summer as a family of 4, and there was a lot I wanted to squeeze into it! About half way through the season I panicked feeling like summer totally got away from us, so I paused and wrote an "end of summer bucket list" to document all the things I really wanted to accomplish by the end of the season. Here is a look back at what we got done - some amazing times were had here in the Northwest!
As a blogger I think it is important to check in with yourself sometimes - who am I, why do I write, what do I want to write about, and so on. Since it has been a while since I have done something like this, I decided to do a little 'get to know me' post so you can learn more about what inspires my blog and the type of content I want to bring to you - my readers! I hope you enjoy, and thank you so much for following along!
Summer is coming to an end, but it isn't over yet! I am a big goal writer - if you write it down on a list that you can check off I think you are so much more likely to do it. So, I am writing down my summer bucket list, the last few items I want to do here in the northwest before summer is over!
This summer is flying by at a heartbreaking rate! With a busy job and two kiddos it seems like time is flying by. My baby is already 9 months old, how is that possible?! However the good news is that we have found time for vacations with friends and some boating days on the lake, so there has been lots of fun so far. What are some of your favorite things you have done so far this summer? Click to read mine! 🙂
We didn't mean to get a bunny but, well, we got a bunny! A somewhat funny story on how we became owners of a Lionhead Rabbit and how she is doing as part of the family. Spoiler alert: she is cute and fluffy!
Another Sustainable Living Tip - How to Ditch the Dryer Sheets! Trade in unnecessary chemicals and manufactured fragrances for eco-friendly and hypoallergenic wool dryer balls and essential oils.
Let me tell you what friends... making a baby is hard work! So hard that it took all of my energy for the past year, and I had none left to give back to my blog. I am however happy to say that baby is here, healthy, and we are doing great as a family. We are doing well enough that I have got my spark back and am excited to be chipping away at my blog again!
Often times I think there must be a more eco-friendly way to go about life. There has to be alternatives to buying everything new, all the time, all this wasteful packaging that goes with these new purchases. I recently came across the "Buy Nothing Project", a community-focused group that encourages giving and sharing on a local basis. Read more here about the Buy Nothing Project and see if you can find one in your area - they have groups worldwide!
