I am a wife and mother that is passionate about sharing content that helps us each live a beautiful and virtuous life. As an etiquette instructor, I love to seek out the beautiful things that surround us. You can often find me making a meal with my husband, building LEGOs with my son, and reading a good book - all in a beautiful dress! Thank you for being a part of this community, I am so happy you are here!

April 2017 Family Goals

This year, April brings us the first full month of spring! Spring is Mike’s favorite time of year, and Peter’s first season he has yet to experience! Spring brings new life, warmer weather, fresh beginnings, and the opportunity to celebrate our faith with the season of Easter! We spent some time this weekend sharing what traditions we want to establish for our Easter weekend and season. It is so special to plan such an incredible celebration this year with our son in mind!
