How To Have A No-Hassle Valentine’s Day

Oh, it’s almost Valentine’s Day, and just as we thought the craziness of the holidays was dying down another one is heading our way! If you are anything like me, then you are hoping to have a chill and relaxing Valentine’s experience this year and keeping it hassle-free is what I’m all about! With treats to make, cards to give, and flowers to deliver, I am only heading to ONE place this month to get everything done: BJ’s Wholesale.

Toddler-Approved Infused Water Recipes

It may be cold outside, but we still need to be sure that we are staying hydrated. And no, I’m sorry… Hot cocoa all day everyday doesn’t cut it. 🙂 Ryland has been on a “juice kick” lately, but I don’t want him constantly having sugary drinks, so since he was getting bored with the regular water and milk selection, we decided to change it up a bit and infuse some water! With three yummy ingredients we made a few different flavors and I think you (& your littles) will enjoy them as much as we did!

Our Trip To Ellijay, Georgia

Traveling is one of my favorite things to do! No matter how crazy it can get (especially with kids), there is nothing quite like getting to see and experience a new place. Between the 10 hour drive, getting lost, driving up mountains that our little sedan should never have tried, and my kids being a part of #teamnosleep all week – we still had a BLAST. I absolutely loved Ellijay and the beautiful cabin we stayed in! We also headed over to Helen which was about an hour and a half away which is the most adorable little German inspired town! This was definitely a Christmas that we will never forget! I hope you enjoy the photos!

I have always categorized myself as a calm and collected type of person. I easily go with the flow, actually enjoy change, and don’t find myself getting stressed out too often. There are those times, however, where everything seems to be pilling up… the chores, the workload, the activities, the bills, and so on! I know you feel me on this one… For 2017, I want to make sure that I keep my cool – even in those moments when everything is far too busy – and I’m sharing a few ways that I am doing so. Want to join me?

What is #FaithfullyBeautiful?

When I started my blog, I had so many ideas of what I wanted to see. I started it a few months after my son Ryland was born, about 2 years ago now – and as a young wife, a new mom, a youth pastor alongside my husband, a business owner, a Christian, a friend, a daughter, and a lover of so many different things, I didn’t know exactly how to find my niche and each name that I came up with for myself just seemed too restricting. After putting it on hold, it was on New Years Eve night 2014/15 that I settled upon Faithfully Beautiful.

Introducing Hello Fresh

Food. We all love it and we all need it. But for some of us, the process of planning, shopping, and cooking is just downright overwhelming. I have never been one that was great in the kitchen – and each week when it’s time to head to the grocery store I start to get anxious about what I’m going to be cooking. With a busy work schedule, two babies, and all the other details of our everyday lives, it seems I have let getting on a great meal planning schedule fall to the wayside. I have heard so many good things about Hello Fresh from friends, so I decided it was time to give it a try for myself!
