Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 24

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 24: Draw a picture for someone. My daughter was the star of today’s show! She wanted to get her teachers a small Christmas gift, so we threw some homemade goodies into a brown paper bag, and she decorated the outside of the bag with, what […]

Mail Carrier Thank You Card

We love our mail carrier! Seriously – she is a lovely person. Always waving, smiling, offering to help…just the best! And we want her to know how we feel! So we made a “Thanks for driving Miles & Miles to bring us our mail” card and attached it to a […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 23

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 23: Tape quarters on a gumball stand. Did you love candy vending machines when you were young? I couldn’t get enough of them! Unfortunately, I never seemed to have a quarter on me when I saw one. Luckily, my grandfather always saved the day by […]

We Rock’d This Weekend

We rock’d this weekend. Like, literally, rocked. My daughter and I painted a bunch of rocks and threw them around our neighborhood as part of my Acts of Kindness Challenge. (You can view the challenge here.) I wanted to post some pictures of our rocks to give a few ideas […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 21

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 21: Hang up candy. Today’s act of kindness was inspired by my aunt, who always went out of her way to give me candy when I was a little girl – even when my parents say “no”. I created this “Make Someone Smile Today” flyer, […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 20

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 20: Donate to a GoFundMe page. Alright people, today got gross…really, really, REALLY gross. I was up all night with the stomach flu and I severely apologize for how I look in this video – HOWEVER – I still managed to get in my act […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 19

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 19: Surprise a mail carrier. Today’s act of kindness was long overdue. There is someone I see almost every single day of the week, and she always sees me at my worst… Usually in my holey sweatpants and slippers. I’m talking about my one and only mail […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 18

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 18: Hide decorated rocks. What do you do when your daughter is home from school with strep throat? Paint rocks – then throw them around your neighborhood. Obviously. This is apparently a national phenomenon I didn’t know anything about – but we sure had a lot […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 17

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 17: Tip extra! Today I wanted to thank someone I see every six weeks throughout the entire year – my hair stylist! She always goes above and beyond, and I love chatting with her during my appointments. I thought I would surprise her today with a little extra […]

My Favorite Christmas Font (and where to find it!)

I am a self-described “font snob”. I love all things font related. I love looking for new fonts, I love discussing font choices, I love analyzing what makes a good font… (I know I’m a nerd.) So when I stumbled upon this Christmas font – I knew I had to […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 16

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 16: Wrap gifts for an elder. Today’s act of kindness goes hand-in-hand with yesterday’s act of kindness (help someone buy gifts – find it here). I decided to take it one step further and wrap all the gifts I helped my grandparents purchase (after they got […]

Acts of Kindness Challenge: Day 15

Acts of Kindness Challenge, Day 15: Help someone buy gifts. Once again, I feel today may be cheating, because I had a lot of fun and it didn’t cost me a dime! My grandparents get a little overwhelmed at Christmas because they are 80 and 90 years old, and they have […]
