My Vitruvi & Essential Oil Recipes

I was recently gifted a Vitruvi diffuser and a collection of their most popular essential oils and oil blends. I have been an essential oil user for years so diffusing oils wasn't anything new for me but I have to say I was so impressed by their stone diffuser and oils!

My (And My Friends') Ikea Must-Haves

I'm so excited to take a trip to Ikea this weekend. It's been awhile and Josh and I need to pick up a few things for the nursery. I can't wait to decorate that sweet little space for our babe!

I decided to ask my friends on Instagram for their top Ikea items that they can't live without and more specifically, things for baby. I received all kinds of great answers and tips and I had several people ask if I would share said answers so I thought I would in case you are planning a trip to Ikea soon.

Adoption Update Pt. 1

Well, we are in the thick of our home study! We met with our social worker last week for coffee and for our first meeting. She is a very nice lady who has been practicing for longer than Josh and I have been alive! We were asked a lot of questions and Kathie took notes as we talked to be able to compile a file on us and all of our information. It was definitely intimidating at times!

Dating your spouse

One thing that Josh and I have always strived to practice in our marriage over the last 6+ years is to never stop dating each other. We try to make it a point to go on a date every week. This does not always look fancy or planned but it is very important to us to reserve some time alone to talk, focus on each other, and laugh together.

My Summer Reading List

Fellow book lovers, it's been awhile! I thought it was high time for a blog post on one of my favorite subjects! As you may have noticed, I have not been reading nearly as much this year as in the previous year, but I am striving to challenge myself this summer to some new reading material. I have enjoyed some good books this year that I hope to share with you soon but I thought I might post some books I have on my to-read list for the next few months...
