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!

November Finding Philothea

November is an exciting month for us as we continue working on Moscati Scrubs! A few weeks ago I reached out to a company in Los Angeles to create the first pattern and sample of the scrubs! It’s been amazing (and at times overwhelming!) learning first hand all that goes into creating a sustainable fashion brand. I’m thankful to be working with this company, and for their support, expertise, and guidance.

We are so excited for the Advent and Christmas seasons next month! It is the first holiday in our home and we cannot wait to experience it together as a family. We are cleaning, painting, and decorating our side room and are hoping to put our Christmas tree in it once it is completed! It’s the first year that Peter is really interested in Christmas and we want to make it special for him. I was searching for interactive Advent Calendars made by small businesses and I found this one from an Etsy Shop! I love discovering small businesses and supporting their beautiful shops!

Before Advent and Christmas come, we are happy to spend Thanksgiving with family next week. Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. I just found the cutest Thanksgiving activity for Peter and our nephews to do when they are together. I love following homeschooling accounts on Instagram for tips and ideas, especially Habitat Schoolhouse! She is always offering free activities and worksheets on her beautiful website and when I saw this one I knew I needed to print it out!

What are your goals for November? We would love to hear! May your month be a blessed one!
