Here’s the recap of our first year doing a whole week of Christ-centered Easter activities — it’s been lovely and I wanted to share some memories and also give you an idea of how some of the activities looked! As I mentioned before, we had our cards on display all week and they mostly guided…… Continue reading Holy Week 2018: How We Celebrated a Christ-centered Easter
I decided to give up social media for Lent again this year — I’ve blogged about it before here and here. This time I’ve been needing to pull away for a while and decided to go cold turkey again, unlike last year when I did a modified version (only using it when my kids were…… Continue reading Social Media Hiatus: an Update

It started with Jonas taking an awesome nap, which meant Adelina and I got plenty of time together to make some treats! This has become something of a tradition for me and I rather like it: making chocolate-covered pretzel…… Continue reading Sweet Valentine & Toddler in the Kitchen!
This story is not sweet or picture-perfect… but maybe there’s at least a lesson to learn, so bear with me.

We blessed Adelina in France two years ago so it was mostly my family…… Continue reading Blessing Day
