We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

April: Easter + Getting Ready for Spring

Mother’s Day Roundup

It’s so much fun when someone works secretly with your kids to make a special gift for you on Mother’s Day. My mom helped Will and Lily make these sweet handprints a few years ago. The kids painted the frames then Mom helped them each make a handprint on a white tile. She attached ribbons to hang the pictures with, too. I don’t remember if she bought the tiles separately and glued them into the frames or if they came in one piece. Maybe she’ll chime in here and let us know.

I also love when the kids make those little “All About My Mom” books at school. They always know to answer that my favorite food is Häagen-Dazs Chocolate-Peanut Butter ice cream and that I like to read. Things get a little dicier when they have to answer how much I weigh (20 pounds was one answer) or what I do. Sometimes I don’t know how to answer that last question, either!

Here are a few ideas that you might like for Mother’s Day:
