Looking for ideas of what to get your favorite people for the holidays? I put together a 2017 Holiday Gift Guide with a range of things that can be gifted to your significant other, relatives, co-workers, hosts, and kids. This list is a mix of things I’ve received and loved, things I’ve given that were celebrated, and a few things I’d love to receive.
It’s Friday, and I’m especially happy it’s here, because after traveling this week for work, Jordan is back in town to help share the load at home. MAJOR SALUTE to all of the single parents out there who operate as real-life heroes.
Also, a huge thanks to all of you who shared congratulations, well-wishes, and prayers for our family! We’re overjoyed about this new baby on the way. Many of you have placed your bets/asked if we know the gender — and we do! Read on for that news and some other things worth sharing from the week…
Life feels really busy. In fact, one of the reasons why I started this blog was so that I had a way to document life as it sometimes seems to move at a dizzying pace.
You likely feel it too. When asked how we’ve been lately, the answer so frequently starts with, “Busy!” (A habit I’ve worked hard to correct in the past year.) Our schedules are crammed with work obligations and studying and birthday parties and doctors’ appointments and family commitments and full email inboxes and volunteer opportunities — to name a few.
