As many of you probably realized by now, I took the entire month of August off from blogging — not because I was burnt out or feeling totally overwhelmed — but simply because I could.

We accomplished a lot AND we relaxed a lot over the past couple of months — and today, I’m sharing a bunch of the things we did while I was away.

Most people I know have somewhat fixed amounts of time, money, energy, etc. — and it’s our job to then allocate these resources the best we can.

Sometimes, the decisions are no-brainers and easy to make. However, many times, it can be quite difficult to know the best way to allocate our many resources. And just when you think you’ve figured out the best solution, things change. You enter a new season of life and you need to figure things out all over again!

I get a lot of questions about the different beauty products I use… which is kind of hilariousness because I’m definitely not that into cosmetics. I usually just use whatever I can find for free after rebate and coupons!

However, I’ve received enough emails that I thought I should write a post with a few of my favorite beauty product… you know, the ones I’d buy even if I didn’t have a coupon {and that means I really like them!}

Happy Thanksgiving!

As many of us enjoy a day off from our regular routine, good food, and great company; and as Dave and I bring Nora home from the hospital, I want to leave you with a post I wrote last year at this time… just because I think it is SO fitting for today. I hope you find at least one opportunity to give thanks this week.
