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.

Last week we chatted about finding healthy food choices in the midst of traveling, think spring break and those do-you-think-they’ll-ever-get-here summer vacations. We reflected a bit on those lofty New Year’s Resolutions and the upcoming shorts and tank top weather. For more than a handful of us, it seems all we have to do is glance at some tasty morsel and we gain 3 pounds. Usually in our thighs or midsection, and then it seems a mere 10 minutes later our clothes are too tight and we’re uncomfortable, and a tad grumpy about it all too. Hence the need for nutritional choices that don’t require weeks of hard work to undo. So today I have another option for you in our series Healthy Food Options for Travel | Breakfast Bombs.
This is another one of those general ideas “recipes” with room for lots of substitutions. It’s actually best with Read More
Aaaand we’re back! It’s week two of the One of these Days Challenge and I’ve been super excited about this one. If you’re just joining us and want to catch up a bit, check out the details of our One of these Days Challenge. It’s crazy how long we can put projects off for years, even those that only take a few minutes. Like the wool dryer balls from last week that were a literal 7-minute investment that they say should last for years. But, enough about that, we have projects to do, right? We actually made this week’s One of these Days Challenge a few weeks ago in Dad’s barn, and today I’m sharing how to build reclaimed wood and railroad spike wall hooks.

We’re down to less than a handful of weeks left until the next family wedding around here. Lots of planning and big things between alterations and finishing up other desperately needed house projects. I don’t know about you, but in the midst of seasons of chaos, I have a deep need to stop. And when I stop I want to accomplish something creative and yet completely different. Something that can be done in one sitting. So when this little guy was abandoned in our garage after the kids moved into their own place, I decided we were going to be a perfect match. Sure enough, we were and now are. My very own little creative therapy gold-kissed wooden bowl.
Maybe it’s like those kids who are always finding and loving on stray Read More
It’s here! The first day of my “One of these Days”. If I’ve completely lost you then you can check out the details on our challenge first, and then come right back. My first project has taken a total of about 7 minutes at this point, and yet I’ve intended to do these for at least 3 or 4 years Craziness! I know. So while my little project flops around in the dryer, it’s a good time to fill you in on my One of these Days Wool Dryer Balls.
The links I pinned oh so long ago …
The first time I pinned this idea was quite possibly 4 years ago. Jill of One Good Thing does a great job of explaining why dryer balls even work for Read More
