The perfect gift for Mother's Day!

Hi friends! All of my time and energy lately has been spent on showing our home to potential buyers, so I haven't even really had a second to think about blogging...so sorry for that!

I did want to do a quick post on this product though, because I love it so much, and I think it would make the perfect gift for Mother's Day!

Have you heard of Lovelinx? It's a Canadian company that makes adorable, personalized jewelry. They have a lot of great options for personalizing, but my absolute favorite is the fingerprint jewelry.


You see the fingerprint pendant in the photo above? How great is that?! I've never seen any other jewelry like this.

I can't wait to get a kit to create Audrey's fingerprint for my jewelry. You end up sending the fingerprint impression back to the company and they create your piece of jewelry from that. I haven't ordered mine just yet, but I'm definitely going to soon! I can't wait to wear her tiny little fingerprint on a pendant!

Lovelinx offers different shapes and sizes of the fingerprint jewelry for necklaces, bracelets or even cufflinks!



I really can't think of a more adorable or unique gift for a mother or grandmother!

Because the creation process takes some time, and it's shipping from Canada, you won't be able to get the finished product on time for Mother's Day, but I still think it's worth the wait!

Do you guys have any great finds for Mother's Day gifts this year?! Let me know in the comments!

PS-I was not compensated by Lovelinx in any way for this post, nor do I have any affiliation with them. I just like the product and wanted to share it with you!

Hi!

Just popping in for a little hello and an update. But first, I'd like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with all those who were affected by the tragic events in Boston last week. I hope that if you or your loved ones were affected in any way, that you will find healing and peace.

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7

My apologies for the infrequent posts lately...It might be like this for a little while longer!

It's not that I don't have tons and tons to share with you...quite the opposite, in fact. It's just that we've been super busy, doing a lot of this....


Packing and getting ready to put our current home on the market! It will be listed this Friday, which is so exciting, but also a little stressful. It's amazing what we've been able to accumulate over the past several years.

I hope to be back to more frequent posting soon. We had a home stager come in and I really learned a lot from her that I'd love to share with you!

Take care for now!

What we've been up to....

If you follow along on Instagram, you might already know that me and Audrey are visiting with my bff, Andrea, this week. Some of these pictures will be repeats for Instagram followers, but some are new!

Audrey stole Josh's headphones before he left for a business trip! She thought they were so fun!

Fresh raspberries for a snack!


Audrey loves running around the dance studio! Last time we were here, she wasn't walking yet!


Future ballerina!


Morning snuggles and a Pooh book.


Audrey is obsessed with Andrea and Bryan's phone! She picks it up and says "Hullo! Unca Bynan!"


Bryan called the house phone from his cell while in the same room as Audrey. She was amazed!


Simple entertainment!


We walked into town to get ice cream with Auntie one day. Audrey kept asking for "more cream!".



More "phone calls". Very important stuff!


Auntie and her bean in coordinating outfits!


More fun in the studio!





Early morning Audrey!


I think it's clear that she's going to be taking their phone home with us!


While browsing some shops, we found the cutest bear! Of course we couldn't leave without it!


Trying a mini M&M, chocolate covered pretzel. This girl definitely shares her mommy's love of chocolate! She picked off the M&M's and told me which color each one was!



Hope you're having a fun week too!

Audrey's Room: updated pictures

Hey everyone! Thank you to everyone who sent kind wishes via a comment or an email! They are appreciated! It means a lot that you share in our excitement!

I'm back with more updated pictures of our current home....this time, from Audrey's room. I am having a hard time thinking about packing up her room. I've already started in every other room around the house...depersonalizing, decluttering...but in her room, I keep delaying the process. It's just so sentimental to me. Her first room....so many memories and sweet moments took place here.

Right before I took these pictures, I was trying to figure out how I could take them without her running all throughout the room during the process, but then I realized that would be exactly perfect. When I first photographed this room, it wasn't full of all the heirlooms, pictures, personal touches, and memories it holds now. And this is exactly how I want to remember her first room....full of life and love...and with Audrey playing in it.

Ok. I need to pull it together here! :)












































Hope you enjoyed the tour of her room! Click here to see what it looked like before she moved in!

Have a great Thursday!
