My Favorite Ethical Clothing Companies

Hello friends!

We live in a sad, scary world. There is no getting around that. Slavery is at an all time high. Like, in all of history, all time high! I see the numbers and it just all feels so overwhelming. Where do you even start? How can you even make a dent? I know that as a Christian I am called to serve the poor, the orphans and the widows. I want to do that! But where to start?

I am a firm believer in baby steps. Yes, sometimes people can dive in and make sweeping, life changing steps, but if we all just start moving in a better direction, change will come. There are a lot of different places we can start. Today, I'm focusing on what we wear.

Stacked Spring Wreath

Hey there, friends!

I hope you all had a blessed Easter! We had an absolutely beautiful day! We had some amazing worship, delicious lunch at our favorite cajun restaurant (because doesn't cajun just scream Easter, hahaha!) and spent the afternoon playing in the yard!

I wanted to pop in today and let you know that I have a fun project up over at Wayfair. Remember my Stacked Autumn Wreath? Well, after being put away for Christmas she got a new makeover and is now my Stacked Spring Wreath! She's bright, and pretty, and I love the way she dresses up my door!

Hop on over to Wayfair and check it out! Maybe leave her some love? 

Love your story today!

Hello friends!

April is Earth month, and it has me thinking. We have spent a lot of time trying to get as many chemicals out of our home as possible. I make our laundry detergent (link) and cleaning sprays. We use cloth diapers (most of the time), and I try to keep the kids' soaps and products as natural as possible. We're not perfect, but we try.

I've also been working on getting our home more organized. It seems like the first step to any organizing project is going out and buying some new storage item. Now, don't get me wrong, I love good storage, but I don't think that running out and buying something new needs to be the first step every time!

This was a great little project for Abbey. She got to make a project, and now she has more ownership over keeping her bathroom counter clean, because it's her work she is using!

Tools for Stopping the Tattling

Hi friends!

What is it about Kindergarten? Abbey has hit full-blown tattle tale status, and it is making me absolutely CRAZY!

I am a firm believer in the use of all sorts of tools when addressing a behavior concern. I can explain why it is a bad thing until my face turns blue, or I can read a few stories and show her a video. If that's what works, I say go for it!

So, without further favorite tools to stop the tattling!
