You’ve heard the quote, I’m sure. The one that boldly declares this life to be a journey and not a race. It’s most often served with a side of deep relief. And as delightful and deeply satisfying as it truly is, how is it that we habitually drift to ordering more frenzied options? Until it’s the only choice we have, that is. Then we come back to the basics. The comfort food of enjoying the journey, if you will.
The narrowing of choices usually comes in Read More
Can we all just pause and say Hooray for the weekend? Even after a 4-day week, this pause is such a beautiful treat. This weekend has me thinking on learning curves and hang time. Perhaps it’s a few pics I came across on my phone last night, or maybe the fact that I’m just past ready for that boy of ours and his bride to come back for the school year. Either way, I’m hoping somehow there will be a bit of this in my weekend …
Isn’t it amazing the difference 2 little letters can make in the grand scheme of things? Think caffeinated vs. decaffeinated … a quantum difference, whatever time of day it is. Take the “em” prefix. It has the power to shift tough days into sweet memories that are worth looking back on purely for the smile it brings to your day.
It’s been a fairly quiet cue-the-crickets kind of month around here. When I say here, I mean this space on the world wide interwebs as I’ve heard it referred to. In the real-life moments of the day, it’s been anything but quiet. More like a raucous kids-all-jacked-up-on-summertime-and-sugar celebration, complete with enough coffee and Aleve for all the grown-up types. And yesterday held a few quiet moments locked in a bathroom hiding from the breadth and width of all these changes sipping a blood orange spritzer in the cutest little local eatery as yet another one of our birds prepares to fly across the great pond for a summer study abroad program. It’s been a virtual fruit basket of emotions that there isn’t time or space to delve into.
And this week I’m preparing for my most colossal Read More
Our son gets married today. Our only boy. To the girl of his dreams. All of our dreams really. And the extra beauty of it all is it’s Mothers Day. Could there possibly be a better way to spend Mother’s Day? Gaining a daughter? The one you’ve prayed for since the day you found out you were carrying him? I think not!
It’s also a redeeming of this tough day for me. When you’ve lost your own Read More
When it comes to vacation season, the destination is usually the stuff of dreams, but the actual packing can feel more akin to a nightmare. But not this year! Because today I have a special treat for you from my sweet friend Sarah over at She Holds Dearly. Many of you will remember meeting Sarah a few months ago when I shared some of my favorite e-courses and we talked about this little concept of knowing and keeping our essentials. Last fall she created a course with all the ins and outs of finding time to hold dearly those things that matter most to each of us, and it was a game-changer for me. I met Sarah last fall at the Haven Haven conference and I can not even begin to tell you what a sweet encouragement her friendship has meant to me both in this blogging adventure and in this journey of life. I’ve been so excited for her to guest post here and share her wisdom and tips to make vacation packing a breeze just in time for the summer holidays!
So, with no further ado, please welcome Sarah here to So Much Moore …
The month of May tends to be a transition month in most peoples’ minds. Spring has officially arrived and the promise of summer is on the horizon. We start blocking off our vacation time and thinking about all the fun that is coming.
May is actually the perfect month to start prepping for those upcoming vacations. They may seem far off, but I want to share with you a few Read More
Last week it was prom pictures, and today this moment in front of me looks more like a wedding gown and centerpieces and final details.
All photos are shared with permission from Krista Browning Photography. Krista loves capturing the emotion of people’s stories through pictures. She is based in South Florida, but she is open to traveling to meet your photography needs. You can find her by clicking on the following social media platforms | website | facebook | Instagram | Pinterest. But don’t look for her next weekend, she’s already booked for a little event that’s extra special to my family.
Have you ever wished for a pause button? One that could make time stand still for a bit so you can soak it all in? Kind of like taking a picture to remember an event, and wishing there was a secret to making these moments last longer than the split second it took to snap the shot.
The only way I’ve ever found to do that is Read More
It’s week three, y’all! I know, now you’re panicked and trying to figure out what in the world you’ve missed. Let’s just say if you haven’t been here for week 1 and week 2 of our One of These Days Challenge, then that means you haven’t been able to knock out some of those cool ideas you pinned forever and a day ago. And basically, as we’ve been known to say around our house, “stinks to be you”, please read that phrase in the light-hearted way it was intended, otherwise you may be a bit offended by the crass bluntness of it all. But really it’s not that serious, though you have missed a little fun, I’m not gonna lie. No worries though, there’s still time for today’s project, because it truly is the quickest DIY hanging light in the history of ever. Seriously. It’s that quick …
You might consider this a PSA of sorts. Or a little confidence booster for those Read More
Many of you followed along and participated last fall in the Mission Organization | Closet Rescue Project with Amanda from Life on the Bay Bush and Tori from Mess to Blessed. It was a month that started with more than it’s fair share of chaos and wrapped up all neat and tidy with more curated wardrobes and closets. And since the weather finally seems to be warming up for good, it seems a good day to share the spring wardrobe switch and closet makeover update with y’all.
