What I’m Loving

It’s been a great week spending time with my family in California. I absolutely love watching my two little ones splashing around in the pool, digging sand castles at Laguna Beach, and cuddling up to their grandparents after a day of fun in the sun. It was a long road trip from Oklahoma, but when I see these moments, it makes the whole crazy drive worth it. And speaking of the roadtrip… The first thing that I’m loving right now was found along our drive across America:

What I’m Loving

Coffee. Coffee has been my life lately! My two little ones aren’t sleeping very well lately, and between being up all night, packing for our long road trip, and the daily life at home, I’ve been needing much more of my caffeine fix. And honestly, that’s just fine by me because I absolutely LOVE coffee! I usually use my drip coffee pot and my Nespresso, but I decided to dust off my Italian stovetop moka pot to have some extra fun with my coffee time. And speaking of my Italian espresso maker, that brings me to the first thing I’m loving this week:

Gorgeous morning at the creek!

Summer is in full swing and the heat wave is continuing on here in Oklahoma! We’ve been working on a lot of projects inside the house (out of the heat) and building lots of forts and obstacle courses for the little ones to burn some energy. We took another creek trip and a day trip to Bentonville, Arkansas (about an hour away) to go to the Scott Family Amazeum. The Amazeum is a huge interactive kid’s museum and the little ones can go wild and play with anything and everything (they absolutely love it there)! We are heading out on our road trip to California next week and continuing to get packed and ready, which brings me to what I’m loving this week. I found some adorable kid’s summer outfits which are perfect for our California trip I want to share with you, along with the other things I’m loving this week! 🙂

How To Romanticize Your Life

Imagine yourself waking up each day to the gorgeous sunlight streaming in your window. You stretch, listening to the birds chirping in the trees outside and throw on a plush robe excited to start your day by following your nose to the kitchen for a cup of fresh brewed coffee. This sounds like a peaceful start to a movie, right? What if this way how your day started, EVERY day? What if you woke up each day excited for what the day had in store, even if that day was just a normal, busy day at the office or in the house as a stay-at-home mom? Romanticizing your life is focusing on the little things that make up each day with a new perspective. You live with intention and enjoy the little things that make up your day, all of life’s simple pleasures that we generally overlook. A few months ago, I really made the effort to romanticize my life and it has made a world of difference in my level of happiness in my every day life. I want to share with you 10 ways you can romanticize your life and start enjoying all of life’s simple pleasures!

What I’m Loving

It’s halfway through summer and we’re in the middle of a heatwave in Oklahoma right now. The kiddos and I have been spending our mornings and late afternoons outside playing in the garden, taking trips to the creek, and swimming in our little pool. The hottest part of the afternoons we’re getting creative and trying to find lots of crafts and activities to keep us busy (and not too stir crazy) indoors. It’s been a busy week and we are getting ready for our trip to California in a few weeks to visit family, but here are a few of the things I’m loving right now:
