Balancing work, kids school (or your school), kids activities, chores, cleaning, meals, and the possibility of a social life. If we fill our days with plans and activities we must be doing something right, right? It can be a lot to handle and maybe it is too much to handle. The full days can lead to stress, and it is hard to maintain a happy family, if you want to pull your hair out.

Valentine's Date Ideas

Another year, another Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day can be such a complicated day to plan for. While trying to juggle invitations for the kids, the normal work load, winter, in general, it is a day that can just sneak up on us.

Sharing Traditions

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is the holiday traditions! It is fun to hear about others’ family traditions and, of course, partake in our own! We have noticed that as our own family has grown older and larger that some traditions have stood strong while also enjoying new traditions. We thought it would be fun to share some of the traditions that we follow, we even asked some of our Healing Hippy community members to share theirs. We have traditions that span the entire season, from holiday preparation to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, what a joyous time of the year. Holiday Preparation When our family was younger, and all the children still lived at home...
