Personally, I think it’s super important to have access to high quality, handmade items by small businesses at our fingertips. Going to craft and holiday fairs just isn’t as easy with a little one, so I like to scour the pages of Etsy to find sweet little happies that remind me of some special people in my life.

You sure make it look like a blast!
So let’s take it all in stride. You are the best mama you can be, and I’m the best mama I can be. We run the world and nobody can take that away from us.

Do you shop at Aldi and/or Lidl? Okay, do you at least buy your staples there? They are popping up all over the country! The prices and quality are top notch. So if you’re not, I can’t recommend it enough. Keep on Reading!
