What Grand Adventures Await? 2015 Summer Reading Series

Who remembers when summer vacations meant free time to do nothing but let your imaginations soar?
Growing up, we would be out of the house to play outside from dawn till dusk. We had a backyard treehouse which became the setting for many, many grand adventures. We were pioneers, pirates, Boxcar children, explorers, mystery solvers, cowboys and cowgirls, the sky was the limit When evening arrived, that meant curling up in a comfy chair with a good book, to disappear again wherever my novel of choice took me.

What happens when twelve hungry crows find a bit of mischief, and a mischievous cat finds them? Probably not what you think!

How I'm Cutting Costs while Remodeling and Redecorating

This is a sponsored post from Moms Affiliate, my opinions stated are 100% my own.

My daughter is going away to college this Fall, so that means we're going to be looking for ways to save in order to make that tuition payment.
In the meantime, we've decided to switch her bedroom with her teenage brother, so while she's downsizing, he's inheriting a larger bedroom. He's happy about this; she, well, not so much.
Both scenarios mean remodeling and redecorating, basically an entire overhaul.

The Perfect Graduation Gift for the Girl Who Has Everything

I received a Wendell August product for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

My daughter just graduated high school at the beginning of June. Finding her the perfect gift wasn't easy. She has what she needs, and never really asks for much. One thing I knew she'd like, because she loves custom unique gifts, is the Upcycled Hydrangea Monogram Bracelet made by Wendell August. 
This is a new company to me, and this gorgeous bracelet is the first thing I've ever ordered from them.

Reflections as Time Has Gone By

It's been a while since I've blogged about real life. Often, it's been about books and crafts, and other fun stuff, which is fine. 
But life around me is changing. Yes, I know that it changes everyday, and I thank God that His mercies are new everyday. But I'm looking around and I realize my landscape is totally different then it just was. My babies are definitely not babies any more, one quick look at my fifteen year old who's over six feet tall is enough to confirm that.

On the Soundtrack to My Summer- Joy Williams New Album VENUS

I participated in the Joy WIlliams Venus album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided an album to review but all opinions are my own. #JoyWilliams #O2O

Every summer needs it's own soundtrack. The one that, years from now when you hear a song, you can remember just what you were doing, who you were with, and the emotions that come with that.
This summer Joy Williams (formerly of The Civil Wars) is releasing her brand new solo album VENUS. To be released on June 30, the hauntingly beautiful album will captivate not only former fans of The Civil Wars, but those who love the pure sound of an honest heart being poured out through music.
