On My Mind

Work Day Checklist

I’m a stay-at-home-mom, but sometimes I’m a stay-at-home-mom with work that needs to be done…anywhere but home. Once I committed to creating content every Monday, Wednesday and Friday without exception, working at random hours after putting the kids to bed wasn’t going to cut it anymore. 

Beet & Purple Cabbage Dyed Easter Eggs

I’m a huge fan of Easter egg decorating. Ever since I was little, it was always a huge family affair. With 7 kids, you can imagine we had about nine thousand eggs between us to decorate and just got to go to town with our designs. I tried out the white crayon trick, lots of ombre and even some tie dye. As I’ve gotten older and especially since having kids myself, using items like coffee, tea, fruits and vegetables to dye our Easter eggs has become the most appealing.

Hi friends! Happy Friday! What a whirlwind week it was. Between daylight savings and wrapping up a new project, the days seemed to fly by. I’m working with a deadline for the first time since college and I’ve gotta say, that feeling is not my favorite. 

A Day in the Life: Jaclyn Gibson

I couldn’t be more thrilled about today’s ‘A Day in the Life’ feature because not only my guest incredibly beautiful, charming and talented, she’s also my little sister! Jackie has always been a wizard when it comes to anything creative, but when she picked up that camera it was pure magic and she’s been living the dream ever since. She graduated with a degree in Photography last year but has been the proud owner of Jackie Michelle Photography for nearly five years now. Jackie lives with her husband Seth and their sweet dog King in Coronado, California (a.k.a way too far from me) and I so hope you enjoy getting a glimpse into a day in her life.
