Back in February, I placed an order for 3 watches & 3 companions via Indigogo. The weekend of August 26, we received them. While the fulfillment date push backs have been a sore spot for many customers, they were to be excepted from a start-up company. However, I’m not writing to touch on those issues. What I’m going to review is the product itself. While most reviews you’ll see on my blog have been sponsored […]

A Trinket Trunk — Unique Handstamped Jewelry with an Unexpected Message ((#Review))

*I received these products for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* As I’ve gotten older, I’ve found that the items that bring me the most joy are the ones that are simple, beautiful, and heartfelt.

Thoughtfully Co Review+GIVEAWAY

Capturing Your Family Moments ((Samantha Sloan Photography Review))

We have never had family pictures done by a professional until just this past weekend. Instead, I have always set up my Nikon and attempted to do it all myself. It was easier when we just had one kid to contend with, but so much harder now with two. Let’s just say my attempts had varied results. That’s why when Samantha reached out to me, I was thrilled for the opportunity to have a professional […]

It’s a wonderful life; and I’m taking it for granted.

In the past couple months, I’ve been feeling much too sorry for myself.  It all started with Logan falling outside and breaking his tooth. Then followed the dentist trip straight out of hell.

Shortly after, Logan and I fell in our hallway. He […]
