Transitioning from Farm Life to School Days

My little family was established, for the most part, in a suburbia outskirt of Denver, Colorado. About a year and a half ago, our family packed up and moved back to my hometown in rural Michigan to embrace and embark on a new lifestyle. I jokingly call our Michigan home a “farm,” however, that’d be kind of a stretch as of now. Our dream is to one day have a fairly self sufficient home, with little bits of modern technology thrown into the mix (like WiFi is an absolute must-have, as well as Netflix and a climate controlled atmosphere that is constantly 70 degrees indoors… well, I think you get my gist. I’m kind of a princess in those ways.)

Back to School with a Mom of All Girls

Back to school shopping as a mom of all girls means we are in constant motion to find the cutest, the hippest, the brightest, and the sparkliest shoes, clothing, and gear stores have to offer. As a self-proclaimed “dress yourself to express yourself” mom, my girls often look like they spent some time in a Frozen-themed glitter factory. And most days, I don’t mind that. But this is the first year that everyone will be in some type of “school” (big kid school and preschool), and I feel like I need to step up my game in the back to school arena. Don’t get me wrong – they will still be rocking dinosaur dresses and cowgirl boots with a bright pink backpack – but at least they will have some of the coolest gear around.

Our Favorite Finds for Fourth of July

Independence Day is right around the corner. We can just about smell the hot dogs and hear the fireworks. Every Fourth of July, Americans head outside to celebrate our country’s independence at the beach, the lake, at a baseball game, or just in the backyard. We all party in our own way, which is fitting for a holiday where we celebrate our freedom! One of the things that makes the Fourth of July so special is busting out all our patriotic gear. This is the one day of the year when all of the U.S.A. is on the same page. Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, this is the day we all come together as Americans and are grateful for this beautiful place in which we live. We are especially excited at Daily Mom this year, and want to share with you our favorite finds for the Fourth of July.
