I’ve been on a coffee binge since I brought home the Keurig K-Cafe for John for father’s day (if you didn’t know, he’s a bit of a craft coffee snob). We love to go out for coffee all the time, and have found the most darling little coffee shops near us ever since we moved to Temecula, CA. Great for our tummies, but bad for our bank account!

And now, I’m happy to add at-home teeth whitening to the blog as another way that real-girls can show up confidently to our everyday – without sacrificing our coffee 😉 Keep reading for a fun giveaway I’m doing, at the end of this post!

✨THIS IS HOW WE DO: MOTHERHOOD + MARRIAGE✨
We’ve all been there – you’re in the thick of it, and pick up the phone to ask your friends, call your mom, look up Bible verses, Google and search Pinterest – trying to find a clear answer to *thriving* during the daily struggles of balancing marriage, parenting, motherhood, finances, working, time management, friendships, meal prepping, cleaning, going “green”, working out, getting enough sleep….and the first thing you ask or type in is: “how do I do/say/manage/balance/get ____?” Continue reading
