I think we all know that size does not mean anything. Small certainly doesn't mean that it's puny. Google Home Mini is anything but puny. I want to disclose that I do have the original Google Home as well and is it weird that I gravitate towards this one more? If you don't care to use the Google Home for use of music, this Google Home Mini is an amazing alternative that is also cost friendly and small space friendly. Not to mention that it's also super cute and relaxing to stare at, ha. Such a win win!
NEED SOME ORGANIZATION IDEAS FOR YOUR MUDROOM? YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE! I'M SHARING SOME IKEA FURNITURES PLUS SOME EASY AND AFFORDABLE HACKS FOR YOUR DREAM MUDROOM. THIS POST ALSO CONTAINS SOME AFFILIATE LINKS DUE TO MY PARTNERSHIPS WITH A COUPLE SMALL SHOPS!
One of the most helpful rooms in our house is the mudroom. Helpful in a sense that it limits the messy shoes that ends up in the house to be contained in this room. We live in Washington, so the mudroom term is exact for this purpose. It rains a lot here and soon comes the Spring season so you know what that means! More yuck muck mud! It snowed a few days ago and since the kids love to play in the snow, I no longer fret about any of my kids tracking crazy snow in the house. This mudroom is part of the house, but it isn't part of the house that it drives me insane to care that much about mud or snow. Read more to see how we organized this area!
HELP YOUR KIDS TO THINK BEFORE THEY SPEAK WITH A SIMPLE FELT LETTER BOARD IN THEIR ROOM & A DEVOTIONAL BOOK JUST FOR KIDS. THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS.
As a parent, we know and understand that little children will often speak out of turn due to their immediate reaction towards certain things. We often do it ourselves when our patience flies out the door. Sometimes I look back in my. own childhood and remember certain disciplinary actions from my own parents that still stands true today and will stand in generations to come. Not all disciplinary practices only happen after a mishap, but can be prevented and taught by taking the time each day to read a good word. I have always been a reader as a young girl and I believe that reading is the most important way to instill messages in our children's thought process. Reading takes time and effort. It also requires a long attention span that will help with discipline and patience.
CREATE YOUR OWN CANVAS PHOTOGRAPHS AS A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO WALL DECORATING. THANKS TO PHOTOGRAPHY.COM FOR SPONSORING THIS POST!
Home decorating is one of my passions as a mama, there is something about this specific activity that just makes me so happy! There's a joyful feeling it gives when I decorate a room to create a signature that speaks our family. My husband and I both love taking photos especially for our family Christmas pictures that we take each year. This past Christmas family picture, it meant more sentimentally because it was our first Christmas picture in our new house! We are not quite finished with decorating and there is a large bare wall in our living room that we have been waiting to decorate, but wasn't sure how exactly. With all things, not just with home decorating, it takes time to fulfill a vision! Since we truly loved how our Christmas pictures turned out, what better way than to turn it into canvas wall decor?
Creating an office is always possible even if you don't have a dedicated room specifically for your office. It could be in a corner of your bedroom or in the living room. This office corner is actually in an art/studio room and it is dedicated only for planning and "office" needs, if I may. The items that I'm sharing today is affordable depending on how you look at it. I am using two full size Billy bookcase from Ikea, and one single size in the middle to create a corner behind my office desk to organize anything I may need without taking much room. These bookcases are extremely simple to build, take it from me, the most clumsiest person in the world...
TAKE THE TIME TO RELAX AFTER THE HOLIDAYS. THANKS TO BEBE AU LAIT FOR SPONSORING THIS POST!
Don’t you just love those lazy days, especially after an eventful week or month? I know I do! I love taking a full day of relaxation with no agenda whatsoever on our plate. A quiet morning, seeing the kids sleep in, realize I also slept in, and the house is actually in order was actually a nice start of today. Friends, I had my coffee today in complete comfort and silence! I took a peek in my daughter’s room this morning and found her so at peace. I can’t help but thank God for who He is to provide this life for us and the safety He gives my family. Today we are taking a long needed rest day with Bebe Au Lait Toddler Snuggle Blanket and the girls' favorite Christmas presents... Sailor Moon Plush Dolls!
It's true that with faith, hope, and love that love is the most important of all because without love... faith and hope cannot live without the means. I have been with my best friend for twelve years now and if you have been married, you know that there are stories that define two people who choose to love one another time and time again. It speaks actions of forgiveness, selflessness, and the will to act on God's grace to one another. Here we are on our twelfth year anniversary and I still long for him when he's away, I still yearn for his presence because God speaks only truth when He said we are no longer two, but one. The future is never an exact picture, and while I will never know how long I will be blessed to breathe the air on this earth... I do know some exact things. With that said, "I can't promise I'll be here for the rest of your life, but I can promise that I'll love you from the rest of mine." I can't wait until our 25th year Anniversary, you can bet that we would further this tradition of our anniversary photograph! Also, as someone who loves to express love with words, this felt board is sure to please!
