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!

Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

Finding Philothea April Goals

It was so beautiful to start this month of April on Easter Sunday! We love new beginnings and this month is full of just that for our family! We are excited for this first full month of spring, and hopefully, some warmer weather!

At the end of March we closed on the house that we are blessed to call home! Over the next few months we will be preparing to move into it. We cannot wait to see all that is ahead for our family within our new home. It is so exciting!

Over Easter weekend, we found out that we were accepted into the beekeeping apprenticeship we applied for! Our own bees arrive at the end of this month, and this apprenticeship will allow us to gain the hands on skills necessary to keep the bees (and us!) happy! We are so excited to learn this beautiful trade from experienced beekeepers.

Peter will be two next month! The past two years have been the greatest of our life and we thank God everyday that He has given us the gift of Peter. His life is such a miracle! We are soaking up this last month of him being a one year old, and making some plans for a little birthday party for him!
