Buying gifts for guys is so hard. Buying gifts for Paul used to be impossible. But I have had one go-to for the past few years. Coffee. Anniversary? Coffee. Birthday? Coffee. Christmas? Coffee. Father's Day? Coffee. And so, I thought... Continue reading

it means "you the guest, are the gift. come celebrate with us, but no need to bring a present. we have too many toys already and will be traveling home after the party with no space to pack gifts in our luggage." ;)

My favorite craft to-do list item in the history of making stuff is pulling patterned fabrics together for quilts. Seriously. DREAM JOB. When I retire (which is never) I am going to just sit on some sort of throne and... Continue reading

So here's the truth. I've been a mama for just shy of 23 months. And in that time, I have never been sad about the fact that a phase will end or that my baby's growing up. It's all good.... Continue reading

I don't have too much to share other than I have sent them 4 bags of clothes. I have made maybe $300 total and I always take the cash (I don't spend it buying more clothes through them). So I don't have a review of making purchases. For me, it's easier than an IG sale and more lucrative that just a simple goodwill drop off so it's "worth it". hope that helps!

I know what you mean. I can only imagine it will get harder as my kids get older and accumulate their own stuff. some of the habits are nice to have now but we will see how they change!!! I would LOVE to see a book from her in 10 years if she goes the kiddo route. the mama take would be fascinating. :)

awesome! I think having just those 30 pieces would be worth it. ;) good luck!!

I know. I know. She addresses the sentimental stuff in a way that is pretty intense, but I thought also helpful. keep that national championship tee!! Just don't keep four nat champ tees, you know. ;) Good luck with the read!

I totally agree. I go through my stuff all the time but this was a different (and what hopefully) will be a more permanent level of decluttering. good luck with the move!! :)
