I wanted to write this post to be a landing page for all things cloth menstrual pads. I have gotten so many questions and interest about cloth pads and how I use them, so it’s time to create a space for this info to live! Let’s just dive right in! *this post contains affiliate links What do you need to get started? The list of things that you need is just my opinion and what works for me. Certainly, you can get more things or fewer things to get started. I find that I fall somewhere in the middle when it comes to minimalism in my cloth pad materials. If you’re wanting to have a comfortable amount of pads and an easy routine, this is probably the post for you! I’ll link everything so you can find it easily if you choose to try this out. A large wetbag* – I got a solid colored, medium sized wetbag to store in my bathroom. I wanted the solid color so that it would be discreet and match my decor as much as possible, but any pattern will do. This bag is where you will place all the used pads when you […]

This topic seems to be a taboo one for many people, but I really wish that it wasn’t! Intimacy is such an important part of marriage! It’s been something that we have struggled with at times in our marriage, and we definitely go through good and not so good seasons of intimacy. (If you’re feeling the same way, I don’t necessarily think seasons of intimacy are a bad thing, and I wrote a post on that here.) But today, let’s tackle the topic of actually “getting in the mood”. These tips are going to be practical things you can do, and I think you’ll find at least one you want to try! I’ve also started vlogging these posts, so if you’d rather grab this info in video/audio form, you can head over to the video here. If you’re gonna stick with readin’ (my personal fave way to soak in information!), scroll down to read my tips! Pick a time of day that ACTUALLY will work for you I believe that getting in the mood can be an all day event. This idea is something that I first picked up from Sheila Gregoire and her blog, and it has stuck with […]

Today, I wanted to chat a little bit about praying with your spouse. I’ve done a post about this topic before, and you can find it here! In this post, I’ll be touching on two questions to ask ourselves if we find prayer with our spouse to be difficult. I’ve been finding myself feeling some negative emotions lately when my husband initiates a prayer or bible study time. I’ve been feeling a weird sort of resentment during these times. I know deep down that it’s just Satan trying to get in my head, but it does get to me at times! I find myself bringing to mind all the things that have bothered me about my husband. All the arguments. All the expectations not met. It starts to poison my mind against the good thing my husband is trying to do. These thoughts are not godly. In these times, I try to bring my focus back to two questions. What am I teaching? I first heard this question being raised on The Mellow Mama YouTube channel, and it’s something that I have found to be relevant in many areas of my life! In regards to prayer with my husband, there […]

Lord, I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the birth of Jesus for a few days now. I’m sure I’ll never fully comprehend every little thing. One thing is for sure…I’m in awe of you. It seems like it would have been so much easier and less messy to wave your hand and just fix all the sinful things we had done in the world. But you went above and beyond to prove your love for us. You sent the son you love to be born unto our imperfect world. Birth is messy and scary. It doesn’t seem fit for a king. Yet, that’s exactly what you chose, and I’m so grateful for it. Thank you for sending Jesus to save our sins in a way that makes it easy for every person in every situation and walk of life to find you. The pregnant mother can see you in her expectant waiting for her child to be born- just as Jesus was carried in Mary’s body. The new mother and father can find you in the sleepless nights knowing that Jesus was also a young child once. A child needing to be fed and rocked and kissed and […]

  We are well into the #christmasintimacychallenge on Instagram, and I’ve been thinking a lot about intimacy within my own marriage and some of the struggles that we have faced. One of the most recent being…figuring out sex after childbirth. Cue that cute little monkey covering his eyes emoji! It can be a sensitive topic, so of course, I’m going to talk about it. Let’s dive right in! I’m not going to make this post about a bunch of things you should be scared of when it comes time to be intimate after giving birth. Honestly, it wasn’t as big of a deal as I thought it would be. Yes, physically some things change after you give birth, but the mental aspect was much harder for me. Childbirth and motherhood make me want to retreat into myself at times. I feel “touched out” and like I have nothing left to give sometimes, and that’s been a bit of a hurdle to overcome.   If you’re in a similar season, what can you do about it?   Embrace your postpartum body Forget the thought of getting your body “back”. That is not to say that you’ll never be fit or skinny […]

I asked on Instagram if gift guides are something that ya’ll would like to see, and the consensus was…yes! I’m not a style or lifestyle blogger, but I definitely want to write about things that are useful to you, so here we are! I knew that I would only have time to make one list, and it seems that the men in our lives are the ones that we have the most trouble shopping for. No surprise there. Every time Alex’s birthday or a holiday rolls around, I find myself planning months in advance, because what even do you get guys??   I spent some time rounding up all the things that we have bought recently for Alex, so these are tried an true items! After making a list, I believe that at least one of these items would work for just about any guy you might be shopping for. I’ll be linking to them on Amazon for ease of shopping! If you decide to purchase something from this list, it would mean so much if you would consider doing so through the link I’ve provided. I get a small incentive when you do that, and it’s so helpful in keeping […]

You don’t have to scroll social media or watch YouTube for very long to see someone talking about self-care. You’ll hear all kinds of ideas on how to care for yourself that range from exercising more to taking full spa days to simply reading more. The self-care list goes on and on. If you’re anything like me, you may find that the ideas given are things that would take a lot of planning to actually execute. Sometimes, it’s pretty dang difficult to pack up and spend an entire day at the spa. Actually, it’s nearly impossible since having my son! My tip for you today is for the times that you really need to get away for a spa day or the days when you want a fancy schmancy coffee, but you don’t have the time (or maybe the money) to do those things.   Make your normal into something luxurious.    I discovered this idea of making normal things more luxurious when I was pregnant. I love to take baths, but I was always a bit underwhelmed when taking baths in our home because the tub felt small, my neck ended up hurting by the end of it, and […]

When I found out that I was pregnant with Kit, I went into major research mode! I would think of something that I would be encountering soon (i.e. diapering, hospital birth, breastfeeding), and I would reach every article and book I could get my hands on until I felt that I had “mastered” the topic. I soon found out that it’s impossible to actually master mothering, but I ended up being really happy that I did so much reading once it was time to take Kit home. I feel like there is always quite a sense of overwhelm that comes with a new baby in the house, but I felt a lot more prepared than I thought I would!   I get asked quite often in messages on Instagram what my book recommendations are, so I thought it would be beneficial to have some of my favorites in a blog post. I’m all about saving time, so being able to direct people to this post will be AMAZING! Plus, I’m hoping you find at least one book in this list that will be helpful or encouraging to you, as well! Let’s get reading!   (This post contains affiliate links.)   […]
