Summer reading is my very favorite! It’s the only time of the year where I’ll plow through several books and always wish I’d make this enthusiasm last throughout the year! Here are the books I’m on the waitlist for at the library or am planning to purchase this summer. This year I kept it realistic […]
My exciting plans for the weekend and favorite finds on the web this week!
Summer is here! Here’s my over-zealous summer wish list, I hope we can cross at least a few of these off! Take an overnight trip to the beach. Go camping. Take a hike / nature walk in a nearby park. Go pick peaches. Get an outdoor dining set and eat dinner in our backyard a few […]
All of my favorite finds from the week!
Last weekend Piper and I had the opportunity to visit one of Organic Valley’s beautiful farms located just over an hour from our house outside of Frederick, MD. We routinely eat Organic Valley products in our house (whole milk, string cheese and their Grassmilk plain yogurt are our current favorites) so I was really excited about […]
It’s been over a year now that I stopped checking email on my phone and people are always so surprised to hear this. I have four email accounts: 1 for Glitter Guide, 1 for The Mama Notes, 1 for Kruse & Vieira Events and my personal one so managing them can be overwhelming. It’s the […]
It was a good week! Finally, I’m feeling back into the swing of things and much better than I have the past few months. This week I started taking morning walks with Piper to start the day and it’s been wonderful to exercise, get fresh air and get inspired for the day together. Finds of […]
I’ve been pretty crummy with practicing self-care the past two years but I’m trying to change that. I just started taking my friend Kelly’s online Self-Care Course (I’m only on lesson 2) and I’m already determined to make some changes in my life! Here are a few simple ways you can practice self-care in your […]
I took Piper strawberry picking yesterday morning with our friends Chelsea and Olivia and it was so much fun. Between that and our trip to the Organic Valley Farm on Saturday we’ve been spending so much time outside and we both love it! Days like this really make me feel fortunate to have a flexible work […]
This week was a DOOZY! Piper and I got hit with a cold on Sunday and I’m still feeling so under the weather, but at least she seems to be doing better. I’m an anxious person in general, but when I’m gearing up for a vacation (overseas none the less) I go into full on […]
Yesterday Piper and I spent the afternoon baking healthy Banana Bread Quinoa Cookies and it was the perfect Sunday. Piper loooooves cookies and I wanted to make something healthier to have on hand for her treats. She was really into helping me and gobbling up her handy work. I’ve learned a few things from […]
I’ve tried to be mindful of Piper’s book collection since I started registering when I was pregnant by including books that show the diverse world that we live in. It’s important to us that she realizes at a young age that we all have different skin tones and colors. I was listening to a podcast interview […]
