My name is Jordan. I'm a full-time working mom whose coffee cup is always half full (and probably still in the microwave). I've got a weak spot for rescuing old dogs, pretending pizza is a vegetable, negotiating dessert with every meal, propagating more plants than any home needs, dreaming of sewing projects while my husband is talking to me, and loving my tribe too deep.
As events unfolded last week in Uvalde, I couldn’t bring myself to post the usual list of things I’ve been “lovin'” because we are very clearly in a shared state of shock and mourning. I’m still in this state with sprinklings of rage, anger, deep sadness, grief, and a fierce motivation to fight for the reforms we need and lives we deserve to live.
I don’t have anything inspirational to tell you (although I did share a little of my emotions on Instagram), but I hope this brain dump of light-hearted things I’ve found on the internet allows you to escape the world’s heavy feelings to find a sliver of sunshine for just a few moments today. ❤
I was really hoping to kick the new year off to a great start, but here we are…three months into the new year and I’m finally posting a “monthly” list. You can’t win ’em all, right?
Many of the things I’m sharing with you this month are things I’m actually very much disliking, but I felt the need to share them with you nonetheless. I’m fighting the urge to write off 2022 altogether so hang with me.
Since I haven’t said it yet, I wanted to take the chance to wish you a happy [belated] new year – I truly hope the remainder of your year is filled with moments to love and cherish. ❤
Stockings are one of my favorite holiday traditions. I love unpacking them on Christmas day to find all the little goodies stuff inside. I also thoroughly enjoy the challenge of finding the best stocking stuffers to surprise my husband, and now Andy, with! I’ve been gathering ideas all year so I figured it was worth sharing with you. 😉
Many of these ideas could be enjoyed by adults and kids, but this list will focus mainly on those intended for adults. But stay tuned: I’ll be sharing a list of kid-approved stocking stuffers tomorrow!
I needed a calendar for our family to use since the desktop calendar I snagged as a freebie has run out of pages. While I was down the calendar-designing rabbit hole, I decided to make an alternative to share with YOU, my lovely blog followers (all 2 of you…hi!).
