Dazzle Dry Review!

In Family, Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Let’s start with a bit of background on my complicated nail polish history…. Most people probably know me as someone who does not care for nail polish on my fingernails – my husband would probably even tell you that! He has seen me paint my nails 10,000 times, only to remove the polish two minutes later. Why? Well, the answer is twofold. First, I like things to look neat and put together. Which means the second my nails smudge it … Read More

How We: Boost Our Family’s Immunity (and how you can, too!)

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Winter is upon us and I’ve been focusing back in on some of our family’s favorite immunity-boosting supplements and routines in order to keep us as healthy as possible during a year when I feel like sickness is proving to be worse than it’s been in recent years. After a winter last year where there was practically no sickness, I think we’re paying the price this year and making up for lost time. Remember: When you’re reading this post, we … Read More

THRIVE MARKET FAVES

In Family, Food & Recipes by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

We have been using Thrive for a couple years now and it’s taken me a bit of time to find what about Thrive makes sense for our family and our budget. While I don’t buy a ton of the basic pantry items via Thrive (I feel like I can find the same quality locally) I do have a lengthy list of items I find easier + better to buy via Thrive. The small yearly membership fee pays for itself over … Read More

A Simple Take on Toy Rotation

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

When I shared about our toy organization and rotation system on Instagram this week, I got a lot of questions about what it actually looks like to rotate toys, and how to implement a toy rotation system. While I’m no toy or home management expert, I do feel like we have a pretty nice groove down for keeping toys accessible and within reach without feeling like they take over our entire house or that their are toys spilling out everywhere … Read More

Full disclosure: I’m writing all of my Prime posts before I actually know what’s up for grabs on Amazon Prime Day, but knowing that many of us will likely be shopping Amazon Prime over the next few days while they have their yearly Prime Days (June 21-22), I thought I would share some of my absolute favorite products in multiple categories.

In Family, Infertility and Miscarriage by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

It’s been a number of years since I’ve walked through a miscarriage, but having found myself in this spot again, I thought it would be helpful to provide an updated resource on helping support a friend following a miscarriage. First, let me say that I’ve been SO floored and comforted by the messages, texts and comments I’ve gotten from many of you as we shared about the loss of our baby on Instagram. While I had hoped May would be … Read More

Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Idea

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I think we can all agree that over the last year, our teachers are more appreciated than ever before. Am I right?!

We have been blessed to attend full-time public school all year and I’m so thankful Ainsley had such a wonderfully normal Kindergarten year. Of course … Read More
