Happy Fourth and a Family Update

I’m still on maternity leave, but I wanted to pop in here for a few reasons… firstly, to leave a handful of inspiring links for you!

I also wanted to give you a little update on my family. As some of you may have seen on Facebook, we welcomed our third little one to the family on June 7th: miss Hallee Hope. We’ve all been doing well and adjusting to being a family of five. I’ve been so grateful for all the great guest posts that I’ve been able to share with you while I soak up all those newborn snuggles.

I’ve got a few more weeks off during which you’ll get to hear from some more guests, along with our regular contributors, and I’ve even got a fun giveaway for you later this week!

Finally, I want to wish you all a very happy Fourth of July! I hope your day is full of lots of sweet, summery memories!
