Our Winter Children's Book Picks

It's almost winter and Atlanta is getting its first snow of the season!! This is super exciting for us because we don't get very much snow if any and this is Ava's first time seeing and being able to play in the snow. I thought it would be fun to mention the books in our home collection that we are snuggling up with this winter. Check them out below!

Not Your Typical Holiday Gift Guide for Moms

Holiday shopping for any mom in your life can be hard. Most of us just want a day or two of peace and quiet and not having to do housework! I wanted to share a few gift suggestions that any mom in your life would be happy to receive this holiday season.

1. A gift certificate to her favorite yoga studio would be greatly appreciated.

2. I think I speak for all moms when I say that if a cleaning service were to begin showing up at door weekly, I would not complain!

3. A vacation is always nice



4. I personally have on my wishlist that I would like to start laser hair removal treatments (TMI, I know lol), but a massage, manicure and pedicure, facial, or anything at a relaxing spa would make a mama's heart sing.

5. Local Atlanta fun is great too. I personally love sip and paint classes, a ferris wheel ride would also  be nice.

6. Books, journals, or anything that helps to relieve stress and helps creativity are some of the best gifts.

7. If you really want to give mom a great gift for the holidays, try a prepared meal delivery. Cooker Delivery is a healthy meal delivery service that works with 30 top Atlanta chefs to prepare meals and deliver them right to your door! Atlanta locals can try out Cooker Delivery using code: Insta10 for your first meal free up to $10.

If any of these things, especially a vacation, just happen to fall in my lap this holiday season, I'll be a happy camper! What gifts are you giving the special moms in your life? Let me know in the comments below! Until next time.

Little boys can be super fun to buy for during the holiday season, but honestly, if I had to buy gifts for a boy, I would be clueless lol.  Ava is my little lonely only, and most of her friends are boys, so I do get a glimpse of what boys are into.  I wanted to share a few ideas for what I think would be fun gifts to get the little boys in your life.
