Organizing Our Kids’ Keepsakes

Organizing Our Kids’ Keepsakes

Over the last year or so I’ve been on quite the purging adventure, ridding our home of things we don’t need or love. It’s been a really slow yet consistent process and I’d say we’re about 80% ‘there’ with ‘there’ being a place where nothing requires massive attention or causes unnecessary stress and upkeep in […]

How to Infuse Those Vacation Feelings into Everyday Life

How to Infuse Those Vacation Feelings into Everyday Life

We recently came home from our annual vacation in Seaside, Florida, which over the last few years is a place we’ve come to determine as ‘ours.’ I owe a lot of credit to my friend Lesley because without her I probably would have never made it to Seaside in 2016 when I was invited to […]

Almond Citrus Sugar Scrub

Have you seen that meme poking fun at food bloggers and their tendency to preface simple posts (like a recipe as an example) with long-winded stories that have little to do with the meat of the post? I have a soft spot for memes and burst out laughing when I read this particular one because, […]

Why I Make Soap

Why I Make Soap

I often write about my adventures in soap making and never shy away from sharing a pretty soap picture. But I’ve never done a deep dive into the how or why so I thought it would be helpful, and let’s be honest, totally fun to share a bit more here on the blog. I’m sure […]

Our Boys’ Easter Baskets

Our Boys’ Easter Baskets

I’m a big fan of Easter. In recent years the occasion has taken on more of a faith-based significance in my life, while the novelty side of the holiday has been emphasized since adding children to our family. I talked about this a bit here but we’re pro Easter bunny in the Bosse home and […]

My Favorite Clean Eating Party Appetizer

My Favorite Clean Eating Party Appetizer

One of the most memorable things I ate when we were in Italy two summers ago, was a beautifully green hued appetizer served atop a lightly fried slice of polenta. It was part of the hors d’oeuvres course at Kelly and Pete’s wedding, and for what it lacked in complexity it made up for in […]

Things I Do

Things I Do

Last week I wrote a (fun) post about the things I don’t do. It seemed to be a hit with some of you and rightfully so! I’ve loved reading similar lists from friends and bloggers because it’s interesting to learn more about the things others prioritize, and the things they do not. Imagine how life […]

Things I Don’t Do

Things I Don’t Do

Inspired by both my life coach Diana and my treasured friend Emily, I wanted to share a list of the things I don’t do. How many times we marvel over the things others seem to effortlessly pack into their lives only to lose sight of the many things they probably don’t to make room for […]

My Favorite Specialty Food Products

My Favorite Specialty Food Products

Aside from having the willpower to choose healthier foods over what I consider to be ones that are ‘naughty’ (for me) the hardest part of my eating regimen is finding products that check off all the boxes for me AND taste good. Well, this WAS one of the hardest parts of getting started when I […]

Celebrating Christmas In A Transitional Season

Celebrating Christmas In A Transitional Season

I asked my husband what would be an appropriate title for this post. “I need a word to go after, ‘Celebrating Christmas In A . . .  Season,’ what’s a politically correct fill in the blank?” “Uh, in a struggle bus season?” was his response. Without even missing a beat. I married up, you guys. […]

How to Tidy Your Home When You’re Busy

If you know me well, you know I love a tidy home. And I’ve differentiated between tidy and clean in this post here, so you’ll also know that while there may be dog hair along my baseboards or a few toilets that need scrubbing, nearly everything has a place in our house. I believe more […]

My Favorite Tidying Up Trick

My Favorite Tidying Up Trick

Even though the title of this post alludes to me sharing one sole tidying up trick, I promise the post length you’re about to enjoy is necessary to share just how awesome it is. So I preface my post with a yes, this is a long blog post but an even bigger yes, it’s worth […]
