Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Family Fun Jar

I thought you would love this family fun idea from my friend Shannon:

For several years, our family has done a summer "Fun Jar" where we put activities that we want to do over the summer into a jar and draw them out weekly to choose that week's fun. After we draw the week's activity, we e-mail friends to let them know of the upcoming event. We have found this is a great way to see friends throughout the summer (and it keeps me accountable to make sure I build enough "fun" into our summer!).

Here are the activities that the girls and I have come up with so far:

Picnic and swimming at the lake
Frist Center
Bicentennial Mall
Warner Nature Center Event
Free Movie at Regal or Franklin
Centennial park picnic, playground, feeding ducks
Shelby Bottoms walk & picnic
Sevier Park playtime with trip to Las Paletas
Discovery Center
Blueberry picking
