It’s Finally Here!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged last, but I have good reason to be putting my fingers to the keyboard today. So much of me wants to be vulnerable with you right now and let you know that I have written and deleted these opening lines so many times because  I’ve struggled to find […]

You Don’t Own Me

Social media has owned me far too long. I don’t know about you, but I have been a part of social media since before Facebook. Yup…there was a “before Facebook”. But since then, our culture has exploded with apps, platforms, and new ways to be more “social” online with people everywhere. Then we were consumed […]

The Storyteller

In the darkness, the void, your imagination takes its first breath. It opens up those uncommon spaces. The simplest forms of expression evoke your deep, passionate response. In that darkness, your imagination runs wild. It is the outpouring of your soul. You beckon others to join you using your voice, your movement, your ideas. “Come…listen…experience…” […]

Letters to Jude : Happy 3rd Birthday!

I have been dragging my feet while trying to write this. Dragging my feet because it doesn’t seem possible that 3 years have already come and gone. Dragging my feet because a part of me is sad to know you’re older. Dragging my feet because I want these words to filled with hope and excitement […]

The Healthiest Version of Myself

It’s not often that I sit down with my computer in my favorite local coffee shop or at my office desk and not write about my kids. My kids are pretty much the center of my world, and because days with them leave behind volumes of stories, I talk mostly about them. Not today though. My sweet […]

Everly Turns 1!

Phew! The weather was warm and sticky (it wanted so badly to rain) on Saturday, Everly’s birthday, but that didn’t stop us from having a house full of friends and family from all over to celebrate. We had my family in from Minnesota, my husband’s family up from Dayton, TN, and our friends from all […]

A Letter To My 1 Year Old Daughter

I feel as though I am writing this letter far too quickly. 364 days have passed since I anxiously woke before the sun came up to head to the hospital with your daddy. 364 days have passed since you were yanked into this world and laid on my chest. 364 days have passed since I […]

A Farm, A Family, And Fun!

Can I just start this post off with the statement that I have some ridiculously talented (and amazing all-around) friends? From photographers to musicians to yoga instructors, each one is pursuing passion and creativity to it’s fullest. One of my favorite people to showcase here in this blog is my good friend, Jess Gann, of […]

Feature :: Little Rascals Shop

I will be the first to admit that I had no idea just how many amazing small businesses there are out there the specialize in kids clothes, accessories, and toys. As I browse through my Instagram feed, I am floored at the attention to detail, ingenuity, and creativity that abounds in some of these shops. […]

Getting Ready To Hustle

Okay here’s the deal… I know that I have been pretty absent from this blog as of late. To say that I have been busy is an understatement. I have been juggling my jobs as wife and mommy to two busy kiddos right alongside running multiple businesses. Yes. Multiple businesses.  So I am getting ready […]

A Baby Shower Story

Y’all. I’m about to be an aunt for the first time, and I can hardly contain myself. {{Insert small break where I freak out from excitement}} About 25ish weeks ago, my sweet sister-in-law, Heylee, made the announcement that she was pregnant for the first time. I’m pretty sure that I jumped up and down and […]

Resolutions And Fearing Failure

At the end of each year, I am reluctant to write down any New Year’s Resolutions partly because I try not to think about all the things I should be doing, and also because writing down a list of potential failures just doesn’t sound like a fun time. Feel me on this? I read a stat […]

2015 :: A Year In Review

As 2015 comes to a close, I wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on this past year (and probably a few of the years before it). I keep trying to come up with any family/job/fun updates I’ve written in the last few years, and I’m having a little trouble coming up with anything […]

Either All Lives Matter, Or None Of Them Do

I’m pretty sure that I’ve sat down at my computer to write this post what feels like a thousand times. Each time I find myself abandoning it halfway through out of sheer, overwhelming heartache, or because there is so much heat in my words, I can’t possibly put them to print. But I believe in […]

Best Essential Oils for Upset Stomach

Upset tummies that plague our kiddos are the worst! They strike without warning, and oftentimes our kids cannot tell us where they hurt or how, so we are left to read the signs and make an educated guess. Ahhh, parenting. 🙂 As we have introduced new foods (healthier and less processed ones for the most part) […]

Spring has sprung, which also means that it’s baby shower season!  I recently had the honor of throwing a girlfriend of mine and her hubby a baby shower brunch. They and 20 of their close friends and family came to Nashville from California to Minnesota to celebrate this sweet couple and their baby girl, Emma […]

And Her Name Shall Be

Choosing names for your children can be a daunting task. We want names that have sentimental meaning, carry on legacies, and are unique from our friends and family. We compile lists, make sure that said child’s initials don’t spell out something offensive, and scour the thousands of available name websites online. Like I said…it can […]

Killing The Flu With A Bath

The Harris house started off 2015 with the flu/colds running rampant through our house. My husband brought in round one, Jude took round two, and I was the final casualty. It’s misery at its’ finest. Now, when the flu comes to town, there is pretty much nothing that you won’t try to make it go away. […]

They are not only great friends, […]
