I grew up Roman Catholic and the Advent Calendar was always my favorite. Thinking back to that time, I can still smell the heat from the old radiators that were in our Catholic school building built in the 19th century and the soft snow that waited to greet us during the December months. Our advent calendars were always religious and filled with little pieces of milk chocolate.
Every year I watch as the masses post these beautiful family photos grace my screens and timelines. Mini and I used to get ours done at Portrait People but the staged, indoor photos just doesn’t fit my style of life any longer and I wanted some outdoor photos that fit our personalities better. My girl Katie Crenshaw from Typical Katie takes the most beautiful photos of her family and I’ve really encouraged to do this for more families.
It really feels like the year has just started but alas, here we are at the gift-giving season!

Community service and giving back are two things that I’m passionate about. I feel like passion doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about taking care of others for the sake of taking care of others. Which is why I jumped at the opportunity to partner with forevery apparel. All of the proceeds from forevery go toward the Global Orphan Project.

I have so many fond memories of egg salad sandwiches when I was a kid. I used to looooove to make sandwiches with lettuce and tomato. When I first made my own children a basic egg salad sandwich, they looked at me with utter disdain–apparently it wasn’t seasoned properly!

I don’t know anyone who’s like, “OMG! I love liars!!” so when I say that I can’t stand a liar, I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir here. When most people lie to you, you have the option to cut them out of your life or forgive and keep it moving. But when your kids lie to you? Well, that recovery is not that easy.
Hey guys, Kai here from Generation Kai with some healthy tips for this Halloween season. Although Halloween is not my favorite holiday, (I personally like Christmas the best) I do enjoy putting on a Halloween costume and going around the neighborhood with my friends. I am really into skateboarding right now so I decided to go as Bart Simpson and skate around my neighborhood collecting my goodies. My Mom’s being the doctor and holistic nutritionist that they are, make Halloween fun for us but also educational.

Many things have changed since I was in school. For starters, we only got on the computer to play Oregon Trail, all of my papers were written in cursive, and having neat handwriting was more important than learning to type. Now? Well, Mini has an email account–need I say more? I’ve also learned that teaching kids to type is way more fun than working on handwriting!

Mud butt. It’s more officially known as diarrhea but in my household we’ve given it the lovely nickname of mud butt for the obvious reasons. It feels like it was just yesterday that I dealt with our first bout of terrible diarrhea with Mini.
