Dear March 2017,
What a fun month! March 2017… You were a month filled with fabulous weather, outdoor activities, lots of bubbles and wonderful memory-filled family time. It was so much fun celebrating and party planning for my sweet little girl’s second birthday and of course we loved all of the fun that St.Patty’s, Spring Training and March Madness brought to the month. With the welcoming of spring, we started working on spring cleaning and home projects, which always brings me so much joy!
As I gladly welcome April, I am ready for a month filled with more family adventures, continuous beautiful temps and of course my BIRTHDAY! CHEERS to April!!!

Motherhood isn’t easy! …So why go it alone?
Finding mom friends that are in the same stage of life (i.e.. running around after littles), is the best way to get through this crazy season of life. Having mama friends that you can talk to about all of your real life day-to-day moments is not only important, but it is vital to your mama sanity! For that reason I am so thankful to have met some amazing local AZ mama bloggers to do life with.
The perfect print can give new life to any space. We have this large wall above our buffet in our kitchen and I have been looking for the right piece to fill the space for quite some time. As you know, picking the perfect statement piece is not that simple; it must be the right size for the wall, must combine all of the styles in the room and since it is the focal point it must be eye catching. After months of searching I fell in love with the Sincerely Us SHOP on Instagram and once I saw this print, I knew it was the perfect addition for our room. It is simple, yet striking and exactly what I was looking for. It displays a saying that speaks us as a family.
You were a month filled with sweets, lots of love and blessed family experiences. Although it was a short month, it was jam-packed with great memories. We especially enjoyed the chilly weather and RAIN!
So long February we are ready to MARCH into the new month!

A new year always brings new opportunities to start new and to implement fresh hope and vision into your life. I decided that 2017 is the year that I am going to step up my creative game! I have partnered with Tinyprints to show you how easy it is to create personalized stationery, marketing tools and business cards for your company; or even just for fun!
Thank you for bringing a month of change! I always look forward to creating new goals, spending time planning and dreaming about the future and wishing for what is to come with the new year. 2017 is going to be a fabulous year!
We started the month off with a couples-only snowy vacation to reconnect and kick 2017 off on the right foot, and then spent the rest of the month focusing in on our family. My hope for the month was simplicity so that is just what I did; simplified, organized, relaxed and recouped from a busy 2016.
You were a dreamy month January, but now I am ready for all the LOVE that February brings!

The Magnolia Story is a fabulous read, especially if you are an HGTV Fixer Upper fan! CAUTION: If you’re not a fan… you will be once you finish reading this book! How often do you pick up a biography and not want to put it down?!… Not often for me, but this book was the exception! The Magnolia Story is written in a very sweet manor by Joanna Gaines with cute inserts from her hilariously corky husband, Chip Gaines. It is so much fun hearing all about their love story, the growth of their family and how they came to be the well known Fixer Uppers. I loved the transparency as they mixed in their real-life faith and struggles along their journey. As you relive their life choices and adventures along with them, you can’t help but fall in love with them, and I routinely caught myself smiling as I was reading! Their hugely generous hearts wrap you up and you find yourself rooting for them more and more with every page turn.
It is always smart to plan ahead and with this STARTplanner I am about to start 2017 off right.
I am so grateful for my 2016, it was filled with many wonderful blessings. 💜 I love that every December I get to spend quiet time looking back at my year in review and begin goal setting for the new year ahead. I am so excited for the special things coming in 2017 and I can’t wait to fill up this beautiful STARTplanner, it is going to be the perfect way to stay organized in the busy season ahead.
If you are a planner-lover like me, or just enjoy staying organized… This is the planner you need in your life! Goals are rarely achieved without proper planning, organizing and preparing yourself for success.
