// Snow Day Origami //

 First, before I write anything I'd like to acknowledge that I'm actually writing again!  This is a huge accomplishment and it took a snow day and one of my children napping to make it happen.  Okay, now that I've addressed that I'd like to share a craft I found that helped us get through the snow "blizzard."  I was searching pinterest for crafts in preparation for the storm (my kids can hardly stand being inside for most of the day, but two days?! I needed to prepare!)  Well, as I was looking I found a tutorial for an origami fox!  I thought, "that's it!"  I mean it looked simple enough!

And now I'm hooked.  I made a family of foxes and two bunnies.  Elliot played with them for hours and it was so fun to see how his imagination was awakened by a piece of paper.  I snapped a few photos and included the instructions.  If you make these with your kids, I'd love to see how your children incorporate them into their play!  It's so exiting to see how we are all connected by imagination.  <3  

I think I'll keep a blog again. ;)

// M o o n r i s e c r e e k : S k i n C a r e R o u t i n e //

 Taking care of my skin has always been very important to me.  I don't like to wear foundation or concealer and taking care of my skin makes that a lot easier.  I love the natural look of my face; the freckles and all.  Yet, for a small while my face began to break out a little.  It was getting a bit dry and I wasn't sure why.  I began to search for a skin care routine that would work for me.  I wanted it to be simple, but affective.  

I found Moonrise Creek because I had already become friends with it's owner, Lauren.  Purchasing the skin care products was an easy decision: Lauren and her company were everything I'd want to support.  Natural, earth-friendly, homemade, etc: And most of all, Lauren is an absolute sweetheart!  She's a strong, talented woman:  a truly kind and loving soul.  Her generosity and kindness shines and inspires.  I adore her, can you tell?

I use three products on my skin every day.  I cleanse my face with the Traditional Cleansing Grains and then I follow that with the Soft Rose Face Astringent.  (It's so refreshing!)  And to finish I moisturize with the Moisturizing Face Cream.  This face cream is pure magic:  The end result is **GLOWING** and I would never put any foundation over it.  I hope this doesn't sound silly!  But- I believe true earth-honoring products have not only brightened my skin, but my spirit as well.  

If you are looking for skin products, I recommend you try these!  With all the money we spend on our beauty care, these products are fairly priced and all you need.  <3

// new friends and a million photos //

I'm so glad I was finally able to edit and post these photos!  We had such an incredible time with Riki, Brooke and their families.  Brooke and I were both apart of The Sling Diaries together and I met Riki through the Sakura Bloom community as well.  We actually hadn't met in person before this, but I felt like we were all instant friends.  Bea definitely made my baby fever a whole lot worse!  She's the sweetest.  Anyways, here's a million photos- enjoy! ;)
