Chloe and Isabel Jewelry Giveaway

A few days ago, I announced some very exciting news (read the post)! I am so proud to announce that I have opened my own jewelry business! This is something that I have dreamed of doing for a long time, so I am very happy to be representing the Chloe and Isabel jewelry line. The pieces are truly one-of-kind and are made with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail. Each piece comes with a lifetime warranty as well. The best part is everything is very affordable and there is something special at every price-point.

Feel Radiant with Oatmeal

The past few months have been exhausting. As a elementary music teacher, I have 800 students. Between planning lessons and grading papers, there is always work to be done. Of course, there is plenty more to do at home too. All of these responsibilities have left me tired.

I’ve found when I’m super busy, eating healthy and taking care of myself are often the first things to go. Who has the energy to cook a healthy meal, exercise, even wash your face when you are constantly overwhelmed with responsibility? The funny thing is, I know that if I did take the time to cook a nice meal or take care of myself, my work wouldn’t feel as overwhelming.

Can you believe Easter is less then 2 weeks away? Now that Ella is almost 3, holidays have become big events in my house. She gets so excited about each little tradition. Her excitement definitely makes celebrating more fun. Last Easter, Ella was just starting to understand the Easter basket and hunt, so I know this year is going to be even more special.

stay connected

It’s hard to believe we have been living in Arizona for almost eight months now. While I have come to really love the area (we are even buying our first house here!), it is hard being so far away from family and friends. With such a distance between us, staying connected in other ways is more important then ever. Each Saturday, I look forward to jumping on the phone and catching up. Unfortunately, my weekly phone calls have become a challenge lately. Dropped calls are beyond annoying! Especially when they happen Every. Single. Call.
