Happiness is... a cup of coffee in one hand and a book in another, am I right? Add outside by the water on a 70 degree day and I’m in pure bliss. I hope your weekend is full of lots of happy things! What are you up to today? (PS I’m going to see The Greatest Showman for the 3rd time, so feeling extra happy!). . #rockyourhappy #behappy #bookstagram #coffeelover #bookworms #librarylove #booknerd #coffeeandbooks
I’m so lucky that through the past 11+ years of blogging I’ve become friends with some of the most inspirational, hard working, truth telling women. Let me introduce you to a few (go give them a follow and tell them hi!). From L->R. On @beautifullybrokenjourney Amy shares a raw and emotional story of her history of binge eating disorder recovery and her journey to losing 100 pounds. 💪🏻. On @slowcookergourmet Jennifer has rocked tapping into one of the toughest blog niches out there and has built multiple successful businesses from the ground up. 👊🏻 On @theweightofmyweight Julie gets deep and personal as a recent breast cancer survivor and shares about finding balance and happiness in recovery. 🙏🏻 We have big things planned personally and together this year and can’t wait for you to join us in our journey! ❤️🎉⭐️ #bloggerlife #blogfriends #wwkansascity #womenwhorock #rockyourhappy #foodbloggers #bettertogether
Remember when I asked for a re-do of Christmas break because we were sick the entire break? Well we’re getting that re-do thanks to -20 degree wind chills, ice and super low temps. I’ll take it as long as it doesn’t take away from my summer. I need every second of summer I can get! . #boardgames #gameoflife #snowday #familytime #hasbro
I had a neighbor blogger collaboration meetup planned today that I was really looking forward to then school got cancelled because of an ice storm. I was bummed to have to reschedule but am choosing to be grateful for a chilled out day at home with the kids. First up painting and coffee. Conquering the world can wait. . #coffeeandflowers #flowersofinstagram #flowersandcoffee #morningslikethese #watercolorpainting #watercolorart #createeveryday #create #snowday #hyggehome #cozyhome

We make these Slow Cooker Roast Beef Sandwiches on a monthly basis. That’s why I couldn’t believe when I looked at my blog that over the past 11 years I’ve never shared the recipe! Well, that problem is now remedied. Find this open faced family favorite on Dine & Dish today. The link to the recipe is in my instagram profile! . #foodphotography #foodblogger #recipeshare #huffposttaste #beefroast #dinnerideas #menuplanning
I have a new 2 Minute Book Chat on my Instagram Story right now. I couldn’t put Far From the Tree by @robinbenway down yesterday.

We officially have a 16 year old! Every day of this parenting journey I’m reminded we have no idea what we’re doing, but based on the kind of kid he is, I’m thinking we must be doing something right. I hope we haven’t screwed him up too bad!
