The days may be giving us less light but they sure do seem longer! Two under two makes for some interesting days here! What is the most interesting moment you have had with your kids?
Today we announced our second in-store workshop: learn how to make your own DIY cleaning supplies! It’ll be held at Nada on Monday, November 19th from 8 - 10 PM. In the workshop, you will learn to make an all-purpose cleaner, laundry soap and stain remover, a natural wood cleaner and polish, and a window spray. Check the link in our bio for further details & TAG YOUR FRIENDS BELOW who you think would like to join you! ✨
Join us before the workshop from 6:30 - 8 for a neighbourhood cleanup, lead by Nada’s own Brianne & Alison. Snacks, hot beverages, and clean-up equipment will be provided, though participants may bring gardening gloves and old plastic shopping bags. Note: the clean-up is free to attend, but we kindly ask you to select whether you’ll be attending both the clean-up and workshop (or both!) when purchasing your ticket. Also, you are welcome to attend just the clean-up, the workshop, or both! Look forward to seeing you then!

Lip Balm fixes everything 💁🏼♀️😘
At brunch in denial my exam is on Monday 🙈
We are together through the night
cuddling, feeding, reaching, kissing
And by morning light I'm tired
and more in love with your face

S l o w d o w n -
Bye less, choose well.
As we come into this crazy Christmas season, ask yourself before you buy;
~ is this item going to last?
~ will I wear it and love it multiple times?
~ WHERE and HOW was it made, and by WHO?
Choose QUALITY over quantity. Together we can make a difference
IG live vs real life😂
I was just listening to a podcast the other day that was talking about what we post on IG vs what our real life actually looks like. We all know there’s a gap, right? The girl that was speaking in the podcast was saying that people were shocked when her and her fiancé broke up, because they essentially thought everything was “perfect “ between them. But the fact is, we only see a small picture of what someone’s life is actually like! The truth is, no one is really gonna post many pics of the hard times. So when you see all those cute, or beautiful, or happy, or “perfect” pics, just know that that’s just a small piece of the puzzle, and you can’t compare your whole life to everyone else’s highlight reel, cause we ALL have issues, right? No one has it all together! Maybe if we started talking about it more on here, then maybe we WOULD be more inclined to at least SPEAK about real life, even if the pic is still pretty...
...on that note, if you need someone to talk to, feel free to DM me, or, @denforourcubs
just started an awesome group for people that would like to talk, and pray for each other about real life stuff. If that sounds like something you’d be into, the link is in his bio! We welcome anyone and everyone who wants in. No bias or judgement. Prayer is for everyone.

I love fall and winter because you can throw on a sweater top and somehow it looks like you tried 💁🏻♀️®®

Nothing crazy to share today, just remembering that one time we hit 5 national parks in one week. Here we are taking a dip at Bryce Canyon! 🏜
It was hard to read some of her chapters in #girlwashyourface
... As much as I like the attitude of “get up and stop making excuses” I also don’t think every women out there is in the season of crushing it. Some need to feel confident in just BEING for a bit... just learning how to be okay in their skin. I am a slow processor... I study everyone around me and I have to purpose to tune into myself. @msrachelhollis
meets you in that place and tells you to start listening, start some self care. That is why I’m excited for her next book #girlstopapologizing
I can only image the landscape she will cover. #neverstoplearning #selfcare #newseasons #simpleliving #livesimply #rise
Peridot was so excited get a personal tour to finally see how this school project turned out years later. Can't wait for the big changes to the YOU addition across the street!
If you’ve had your eye on a big chunky throw blanket... monday-monday I will be having a 20% off sale on all my blankets ✨ this does not happen often, so now is the time!
Making time is 2-3 weeks so your blanket will be ready in time for Christmas 😉
This little cherry wood diffuser! Just 1-2 drops and it smells great all day. My husband brought this back from his last trip to Japan. Lovey addition to my office. You’re supposed to stick with only one oil (or blend) per diffuser and I get why—the scent doesn’t go away completely even a few days later.
The oil blend I chose for this one includes rosemary, juniper, lemongrass, nutmeg, fir, clove, and pepper! It feels like it tingles the front of your brain (seriously!) and has helped me get through a lot of heavy document editing this week.
It was snowing Monday and today It was in the 60’s... North West Arkansas is weird 🤷🏽♀️ also, a huge congrats to the cutie with Oliver in this picture, Roman, who became a big brother this week!♥️♥️
Bittersweet chocolate. natural peanut butter. medjool dates. flakey sea salt — As soon as I saw this recipe from @thefirstmess
, I had to try to recreate it 🤗 #ourkitchentablestories
Just some three day old wrinkly grandpa sweetness because my nightly activity has become going down newborn lane and sobbing uncontrollably because my teeny baby has been eaten by a giant grown-up baby 😭
Cheers to @grwinefestival
and thank you @traversecitytourism
for hosting such a great reception today! If you visit the festival tomorrow be sure to check out the amazing wines from Traverse City 🍷
She may not have been able to complain that she couldn’t put her arms down on her walk to school, but her marshmallow outfit still made me chuckle ☃️😆.
Our girl has the sniffles again. I’ve been loading her up with Thieves, Raven, extra Ningxia, warm tea with honey, and today I made a chest rub for her. .
So when she asked to go outside and play in the first snow, we bundled her up (a minute after this picture we had mittens on her hands 😉) and took her out for a few minutes. She loved every minute!
Keep swiping ➡️ if you need a little laugh as she struggles to stand in her snowsuit 😂.
Time and time again I’m thankful we have all these wellness tools on hand when we need them the most. .
Who got the movie reference?! 👇🏼
Naps by the Christmas tree🎄
Hey lovelies! We are about to send out our November newsletter, I know I know we just sent one out, but we want to keep you in the loop and also thank you! So if you are not receiving our newsletters please message me with your email address! •
Also we were hoping we could afford to pay a photographer friend to take pictures for us, but we Haven’t been able to do that, so self timer on my camera for the win! Now to get “Christmas” pictures and the kids to cooperate again!
Any tips tricks or ideas?
This girl and her babies. When I walked out of the room she was rocking them one by one and laying them down. When I came back in a couple minutes later I saw this. She takes all of these animals + about 5 more that are “sleeping” on the couch right now everywhere she goes! Sometimes it drives me crazy lugging around a million stuffed animals but there is nothing sweeter than watching her use her little imagination and play with all her little babies.
It feels like yesterday this little boy was just a brand new baby sleeping away in the stroller. Now he is the sweetest, chunkiest, 9 month baby boy. Wishing I could keep him just like this forever 💙
It may look like beck is pushing her away, but there is nothing this boy loves more than when sawyer smothers him with hugs and kisses. Their little bond is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen 💙💗
This is how I feel about the weekend •
This weekend was so full of encouragement, planning, prayer, worship, friendship, team building, games, joy and laughter, grieving with one another, intentionality, vulnerability, and so much more. I am so grateful that God has brought us to a team of people who love him and just want to be a people who serve Him and serve others. I’m also so thankful for the people who have come along side us praying and financially partnering with us so that we can do the work the God has called us to do. We can’t wait to see What GSM does next year through Christ who has given us strength and can’t wait to share with you the fruit of your giving! •
What is God calling you to do? Let us come along side you! Let’s come together and bring Heaven to earth! Link in profile for more info!
Yay! Demo day is coming!! Stay tuned!
