How To Have At 'At-Home' Date Night (That's Actually Fun!)

     I don't know about you, but ever since Jack and I became parents, it's been more and more difficult to make time for ourselves, and to nourish our own relationship. Whether you're parents or not - sometimes life circumstances can change the way we operate within our relationships. Maybe your child is making us too exhausted to stay up chatting with your spouse at night. Maybe a new job is making it harder for you to visit your boyfriend, or even get dinner together once in a while. If you're engaged, sometimes even the busyness of wedding planning can make you forget to sit down and breathe for a moment. Regardless of where you are in life, I think we've all had moments where we think, "when even WAS the last time we spent time together & went out of our way to do something special just for us?"

10 Unique Advent Calendars To Do With Your Kids (No Candy!)

     I'm SO excited for today's post, partially because I love the Christmas season, but also because I have such fond childhood memories of my sister and I taking turns opening the doors on our advent calendar. We were OBSESSED with Playmobil growing up, and for a few years my Mom got us the Playmobil advent calendar - one year it was Santa's workshop, and the next year it was a Nativity scene. We always looked forward to opening up the little door and gaining a new piece every day. Advent was started as a sacred tradition of reverence and reflection on Christ's coming to Earth as a baby, and the true meaning of Christmas. Whether you are a Christian like me or not, Advent can be a fun way to connect with your children and your family, whether you're opening a new door to reveal a fun toy or picture, part of the Nativity story, or a Scripture verse.
