We have been living in chaos. There are boxes everywhere. I finally found our silverware yesterday afternoon. The kids keep asking me where specific toys are & I keep hoping they will forget about them. ;) We are waiting on a replacement drain hose for our washing machine, so naturally, the laundry piles are taking over the house. I could go on & on.

On a more positive note, the weather here has been beautiful! The tree leaves are still in the process of changing, we've had a ton of sunshine & the kids love seeing all of the houses festively decorated for Halloween. Fall is the best!

So even though we've got a million things to do at home, we are finding ways to skip out on our chores. We recently took Layla & Landon to a local pumpkin patch and we had the best time. The kids played their little hearts out! There was a maze, a huge playground with obstacle courses, farm animals and tractor rides. Oh and let's not forget about my personal favorite—homemade donuts & cider. ;) 

The fresh air & sunshine did the trick and we all felt better & less frazzled about the chaos at home. And seeing your kids ponder over their pumpkin choices & stuffing donuts into their faces is pretty adorable ;) Hope you're all enjoying the fall festivities as well. Happy weekend!



Hello friends!

This is my very first post on my new blog & I'm so very excited that you're visiting. I used to blog over here & over here, but now that my kids are a bit older and we've moved back home to Michigan, I felt the need to start fresh. So here we are! I hope you like the new space as much as I do. ;) 

I have so many things that I want to write about and I look forward to sharing & connecting with all of you. I don't really have a specific goal for my new blog so please bear with me while I find my groove. It may seem a little jumbled at first—or maybe forever—but that's kind of how life can be at times. Am I right?! 

So thank you for stopping by, and if there's anything you'd like to see me write/post about, please let me know. My next post will be up soon. And if in the mean time you'd like to get to know me better, click here or follow me on Instagram. The kids & I are always up to something. ;)

Thanks for reading & have a great Saturday!
