Sparkle Birthday with free printable poster

This is a picture of New Year’s Eve. No, that’s her name. She was born on New Year’s Day and I had the opportunity to celebrate her birthday with her this year this year. It was a bright and sparkly event–as a bubbly 5-year-old girl’s birthday should be. I was happy to help her mom […]

One Little Word 2015: Receive

For the background on my One Little Word or Word of the Year posts, read this post. My One Little Word for 2015 came to me several weeks ago. I initially tried to dismiss it, because it doesn’t sound like a goal at first and could be misinterpreted as not a very noble goal. But […]

A Very Hostess Holiday

I work with a lot of different companies as a blogger on various sponsored posts. My kids are kind of used to random packages arriving at the door and ask me if it is something “for the blog,” but when the package of yumminess from Hostess arrived, things were a little different.
