1. Caleb got a haircut and is looking mighty handsome!

2. Fascinating story of survival I just came across.

3. Great advice for anyone.

4. I am a business owner and I love learning philosophies and better business practices. This is an interesting TED talks about some of these philosophies.



1. Maxwell is a little apple thief. Every time I eat an apple he attacks! He doesn’t have any teeth so he can’t take a bite but he sure loves slobbering all over my apples:)

2. I’m going bananas for this pie.


3. This view never gets old.

4. I am going through a Life cereal phase. I mix original with cinnamon for my night time snack. So good! Yes, I eat a night time snack. We eat dinner at 5:30 so we can get the boys to bed and I need a snack before bed. I can’t sleep if my tummy is rumbling. I know there is a rule out there to not eat past 8:00, but I love breaking rules:) I am such a rebel:)

5. These are gorgeous!

6. Happy to read this because I talk to Maxwell all day long!


7. I have a new favorite cookie and you will get the recipe next week! Stay tuned!

8. I want these for lunch!

9. Are you enjoying our weekly meal plan posts? We would love your feedback!

10. Great ideas for decorating your home with your travels! Now, I want to go on a trip!

Get the best of the best!

  1. I always have cereal before bed, too (we eat with the kids early as well). Cinnamon Life has been in our pantry recently, so I’m enjoying it as well…even though I bought it for the boys! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Maxwell’s eyelashes are gorgeous!!! Both of your boys could not be cuter. Can’t wait to see the new cookie recipe, I was drooling over it on IG the other day. Thanks so much for including my orange slices!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  3. “The heavens declare the glory of the Lord” – what I thought looking at your glorious sunrise/sunset! Breathtaking!

  4. Thanks so much for sharing your boys with us! They are both adorable! Love your upbeat, informative blog. I always look forward to it…

  5. Such cute boys! I just got back from Trader Joe’s where I bought the ingredients to make the chili recipe you posted yesterday. Your recipes are high on the list of things that are helping me get through this long Boston winter!

  6. Your boys have the most gorgeous eyes! Can’t wait for the new cookie recipe– looking like something with sea salt??
