Welcome

What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Gifts From Brands That Give Back



It's day five of gift guides --- right? 5 down, 5 to go in our little mini-series. So, today we're shining a light on brands who are not just about profits but about shaping a better tomorrow by giving back to their communities. Supporting brands that back cause is my favorite because I really don't feel like it's money being wasted. I've picked out several brands that I love and that all back causes near and dear to my heart.
