About

Launched in 2016 as a community for parents of young kids, this site is a rapidly growing group of families looking to make life simpler and more enjoyable. If you love tips and resources for making your busy life easier, you will feel right at home here. You will find tricks and encouragement for turning the craziness of raising children into enjoyable times for your whole family. You will find the best money saving resources and budgeting tips to help with your families financial goals. You will find educational articles that focus on keeping early childhood education simple and engaging for your young children. And you will find photography resources to help you capture each and every moment. Most of all, you will find encouraging families who are going through the journey right along side you.

I am an elementary teacher turned stay at home mom and wife of three beautiful kids and one amazing husband. I love to encourage families to engage in meaningful activities that will have a lasting impact on their child’s education. I do not want to add to the stress of raising children, but rather show how everyday activities can foster learning. I am also a family photographer who never puts my camera down and takes far too many photos of my children. This is why I love to share photography tips with other parents. They are only little for a short while and the photo tips you find here can help you capture the memories for a life time. You do not have to be a professional photographer to take great photos of your kids. A few basic understandings and you will be on your way.

How to take better photos

I am not a perfect mom. I am learning right along with you. That is what makes this community so great. I will share new information as I learn and will probably share some of my faults as well so you can see that we all have the same struggles. I started this blog because everywhere I go with my three young kids someone says to me, “wow, you have your hands full.” And although that is true, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Life can still be enjoyable and simple while raising kids. Even young ones. I am inspired when I see other moms and dads who find ways to keep life chaos free (mostly), spend wisely, and enjoy the moments they have together. I hope, through this website, you are able to create the life you want for you and your family.

If you feel at home here, take a minute to join the community by subscribing to our newsletter. Don’t worry, your inbox won’t be flooded with stuff from us. We will simply share any great resources, tips, and tricks we find that we know you will love.

Thanks for being here and please come back often!
