Frugal & Simple Camping {and Giveaway!}

At least once or twice a year, our family has a tradition of camping at the beach. (Here in the Pacific Northwest, they are usually “wooded” campgrounds, with forest hiking trails nearby, too.)

We encounter fluctuating temperatures, with cool ocean breezes, chilly nights, and summer sun in midday. Along with that,

Mama’s Gift Guide & $300 Value Giveaway!

Embracing the seasons of motherhood often means blessing others who have spiritually and physically mothered and mentored me, rather than focusing on my own season. I love surprising these dear ladies with a special gift and note just to show my appreciation. What better occasion than in the coming month, with Mother’s Day approaching?

I have also

A Day in Our Home (and last sale day!)

With the arrival of autumn, I’ve been doing more decluttering and sorting. Boxes of donation items sit by my back door, awaiting the next trip to town. Shelves and drawers can “breathe” a bit more, and so can I. Old magazines, outgrown clothes, and other unneeded items from previous seasons of life

Natural Healing Clay Giveaway (and the saga of a toe…)

My husband and I have had our share of laughs this summer over the number of times our summertime sandaled toes and barefeet get stomped on by wiggly little children. However, after one big jump/slip/crash by an exuberant child (ironically, outside the hospital!), my toe was really throbbing.
