Here are “Our Favorite Picks” from last week!

Michele’s Favorite Pick!

Small Things Over Time had the perfect list of suggestions, 37 to be exact, as to what to do on a long road trip with kids. As someone who has moved many times, one time being across the country with 3 very small children, I desperately wish I would have had this list a couple of years ago. I loved her idea of setting a schedule because kids usually do better with some kind of routine in knowing what is coming. If you’re planning on going on a road trip this summer, hop on over and read her post 37 Things To Do On A Long Car Drive With Kids.


Lori’s Favorite Pick!

What a great week to prepare for an amazing Mother’s Day!  I loved all the tips, lessons, and stories about Motherhood and celebrating women in all of our various roles as we influence the children in our lives! I was especially touched by  Am I Good Enough? My Long Journey to Self-Worth by Carri of Down Aspen Lane. She wrote of the very real stories we tell our self – of not being good enough and self-doubt.  Her journey led to the answers she needed. She changed her focus from herself to others through family history. Take a minute and let Carrie’s journey inspire you!
