Found a baby turtle last week. Fascinated at its beauty. After the kids observed it a while, it made it safely into our pond.

Spring Equinox craft (by my girl) at co-op today

Planted two trees today. And that always makes me want to plant a loooooot more.

Traveling for the first time since Christmas. To see my family 3 hours away. Which was the last place we traveled as well. Looking forward to this trip. But also excited for some other destination trips coming up soon, I hope.

Co-op Tuesday

Learned about minerals and rock characteristics.

Also did some rock painting with these cool acrylic paint markers (pictured) and got free basalt stone arm massages from our in-house masseuse (aka a homeschool mom). 🙌🏼

Scraped my knee on concrete this afternoon, but probably not in the way you might think.

Two different real conversations with the kids on the way home in the car a few nights back: 1) Why glass is so strong, and 2) Where boogers come from

I like parenthood.

Some Lego Organization

Organized our “imagination” Lego pieces by color a few days ago. Wasn’t positive they’d stay that way. But so far, the kids have played with them more AND put them back in the right trays. ✨

Used these clear trays from Target and tried not to overfill them so that they can easily search for the piece they want.

Date night last night with my bud. He hasn’t been around too many fish tanks. Was quite intrigued. 🐠💙

For a second, I thought I had a big pimple trying to frustrate me and form on my forehead. Then, I remembered that I hit my head on a shelf this afternoon (after leaning over to take a picture of a plant I want to get rid of…). Wondering what that spot will look like in the AM.

I think this is the first year in a very long time that I didn’t get a Target gift card for Christmas. And I’m happy about it.

I bought some wool socks a couple of weeks ago. Love them. And now I keep getting ads for all sorts of really nice looking wool socks and clothing. And, well, this is good. But also not good.

Christmas crowds are not my thing.

Inspiration: Cozy Boho Bedding From Target

I’ve been thinking about new bedding for our master bedroom recently, so I’ve had some of these items “saved for later.” I saw that most bedding is on sale this week at Target, and I decided to put together a fun inspo board. And now I want this whole look! 😍

Instead of saying, “What on earth is that?,” Rowyn has been saying, “What is that, on earth?” And I like it that way a lot more. 💖

Inspiration: Target Christmas Pillows

Something about seasonal pillows gets me every time. I love adding one as the final touch on a made bed. Even with no other decor in a room, it just adds a little something special. At Christmas time, I think holiday pillows also make everything feel a little more cozy and magical scattered in the living room or placed on an entryway bench, etc. These are some of my favorite Christmas pillows from Target this year.

Brigsby’s birthday was yesterday. Every time someone told him Happy Birthday, he’d say Happy Birthday back (as though someone had said hello instead). 😊 It was the cutest thing.
