Hi, friends!  Can you believe it is already November? As I’ve been brainstorming my PowerSheets Tending List Goals over this past week, I’ve decided to cultivate hospitality and hygge this month.  As we say goodbye to all things Halloween, and begin to embrace Thanksgiving & Christmas, I want to focus on a life-giving, organized home as well as simplicity and purposeful rest.

The Teal Pumpkin Project: A Safer, Happier Halloween For All Kids

on October 29, 2017

The Teal Pumpkin Project, started by FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), encourages families to offer non-candy options for trick ‘r treaters on Halloween.  This allows kids with food allergies or other sensitivities to participate.

A friend of mine has a daughter named Molly, and she has a peanut allergy.  Her allergy made Halloween a bit tricky until teal pumpkins started showing up on porches in their neighborhood.  Now, Molly {and her mommy} can enjoy Halloween just like all of the other families.

Here I’ll share with you more information about The Teal Pumpkin Project, how to participate, links for trinkets and toys to give away this Halloween, as well as FREE printable resources to help you decorate your porch and teal pumpkin.  Are you ready to join The Teal Pumpkin Project family?

I have been reading a lot lately about the Danish tradition of Hygge, and I’ve completely fallen in love with the concept.  Just in case you’ve never heard of Hygge before, Hygge is best defined as,

“the art of building sanctuary and community, of inviting closeness and paying attention to what makes us feel open-hearted and alive; to create well-being, connection, and warmth; a feeling of belonging to the moment and to each other; celebrating every day.”

Doesn’t that describe what we all want in our life, and isn’t it really your main goal as a mom?  To create meaningful memories and traditions; build a cozy, creative home for your family; & be able to cherish moments with your family each and every day?

Well, today I’m going to give you 5 Action Steps you can take today to be on your Hygge-living way!

Let’s get started….
