Recent Happenings + Favorites

Whew, life has been a complete whirlwind lately! While I’ve been busy, it has been the best kind of busy–doing things I absolutely love to do ❤️

Taking care of our daughter, our pets, real estate work, running an Etsy shop, being involved with our church, keeping up with housework, etc. is all a joy to me. I just need a few more hours in the day 😉

–> Okay, here’s something random to start this post off with: if you see these bunny-shaped graham crackers in stores, do yourself a favor and buy more than one box. They’re so delicious! I may or may not be hiding them from Sadie 😜

Sunday Coffee Date

Hello and welcome to another Sunday Coffee Date post! This is one of my favorite types of posts–it’s just a fun casual time to chat as though we were meeting up for a cup of coffee. So, let’s do just that 😊

If we were having coffee right now… I would ask how you’re doing and what you’ve been up to this month. I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to lately but I’m hoping to be more present in the upcoming weeks. I had two people complain about USPS shipping delays with my Etsy shop so I decided to just offer my bread locally. It’s the most popular item in my shop, but I don’t want people to have a bad experience with it arriving late, you know? It’s a lot of pressure off of my shoulders to just be shipping the granola and other items!

If we were having coffee right now… I would tell you that I finished about 90% of my holiday shopping and most of the items I purchased for family and friends are from small businesses! Speaking of small businesses, my friend Laura just launched the cutest kids gratitude journal in her shop!
