I just haven't had the motivation at night to work on my [entire] night routine. Instead, I've been focusing on making to-do lists first thing in … Continue reading Weekend Recap.
This week I experienced burnout; again. I experienced burnout last September going through all the motions with my husband.

Lately, I've been having such smooth flowing mornings.Once school started for my preschooler, I wanted to nail down a calm, yet productive morning routine. This routine is just a jist of what usually happens on my "full" solo days with the kids. Wake up times can vary (especially depending on nap times the day before) … Continue reading My Morning Routine [w/ 3 Kids]
