Baby #3 // All the Details

In Family by Madison Mayberry1 Comment

Those of you who follow along over on Instagram and Facebook have probably seen our news that we are expecting another baby in August! We are feeling SO thankful for this sweet baby and blessing and as someone who knows what miscarriage is like, we never take the gift of new life for granted. For me, the first trimester always brings its fair share of worry and fear, probably more so than others, and while I can’t say that ever … Read More

Green Cleaning :: What Works for Us

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

When you think about green cleaning and removing toxic products from your home cleaning routine, do you get a headache just thinking about it? Because it’s been a SLOW process for our family as we’ve attempted to clean up the products we use at the Hofmeyer house. Note: While this might not be the case in all homes, my husband is our dedicated bathroom cleaner and because of that, he gets a big say in the products we use and … Read More

Preschooler Christmas Gift Guide

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi friends! Checking in today with the first of a few holiday gift guides. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorites for the preschooler-aged kiddos in your life. All of these items we have used/purchased/loved and/or have firsthand experience with using so I can vouch that if your kiddos are anything like ours, they will love these gifts! That said, this is geared more toward Ainsley’s age rather than Collins’s age, though Collins certainly plays with most of these toys, … Read More

Parenting the Strong-Willed

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

The other day, I shared a post on Instagram about these two little strong-willed firecracker children of mine. I rarely talk about the difficult parts of parenting littles in specifics online, because I want to protect my children and their dignity online even from a young age. I don’t think showcasing their meltdowns, tantrums and fits for the world to see is fair to them. That said, I do, on occasion, like to pull back the curtain on how I … Read More

My Skincare Top 3

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I get a lot of questions each week about skincare, which I LOVE. One of my absolute favorite things is to do personalized skincare consultations over email or in person to help people find the perfect products for their unique skin. Over the last 3+ years working with Beautycounter, I’ve learned there is NO one-size-fits-all solution to skincare, and more often than not, it’s a trial and error process to find the right skincare “mix” for you. That said, frequently … Read More

Our Girls, Lately

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

It’s been a while since I did an update on the girls, hasn’t it? I was laying in bed just last night, thinking about how BIG sweet Ainsley is! I swear I was just blogging about her pregnancy with you all, and now she is inching up on four years old and suddenly seems so much older now that she is in preschool. And, as mommas of multiple kids know, the second kiddo just doesn’t stay a baby quite as … Read More

How I’m Finding Mom Balance in a Crazy Season

In Family by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

The last couple months have been really crazy for our family. I try not to allow our schedule to get too packed during the weeks and weekends – particularly trying to avoid back-to-back weekends when we are away from the kids or traveling for work, or any number of things. And yet somehow our fall ended up much more chaotic than I had hoped or planned. It started with me traveling to Nantucket for work for five days, followed by … Read More

What I wish I had known about acne when I was younger…

In Family, Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Acne. Goodness, is there a person on the planet who hasn’t struggled with acne at one point in their life, if not more? I remember going to dermatologists growing up in search of something that would help with my acne and breakouts. I never had horrible skin as a teen, but as I got into college I struggled with terrible terrible acne – the type that crippled me with insecurity and sent me into a tailspin searching for any and … Read More
