Young children who aren’t yet able to read book spines can practice color sorting in their home libraries 🌈 It’s a simple way to incorporate classifying and tidying skills into their daily routine 👦🏼 👧🏼 •
Hi! My name is Holly. When I'm not cooking on tuesdays, I'm homeschooling my "bigs," keeping my 18 month old twins clean(ish) fed and out of trouble, doing my best to have an exceptional marriage with my husband Andrew, oh and remembering to feed my black lab calvin. I really like feeding people, good food and encouragment. I am the coordinator for Silverton MOPS-a support group with about 50 moms. Moms of littles are my people. I turned 30 this year and just found my first gray hair. I'm trying to decide if I should hide it or dye my whole head silver, but I think I would need a full sleeve tattoo to pull that off. I am an ENFP, enneagram 7, a gatherer of people and a lover of food. I am a Christian, and I think heaven's dinner parties are going to be off the chain. I have plans to write a book, start a chicken farm & financially help people adopt. My parents raised me to work hard and do hard things. I love coffee and black tshirts. I am not perfect, but I wake up every day and try to do a little better than the day before. I'm a hot mess who usually pulls it together last minute, which drives the people closest to me nuts. I'm just crazy enough to think I can take my passions and turn them into a business that leaves this world a better place. I want a high five when I get to those pearly gates, and I don't want to die well rested.
About a year ago I got on instagram and saw Gabbi posting beautiful pictures of food that she was meal prepping. I had just finished a bible study that talked about how God moves through people doing what they're passionate about, even if it is something that seems unrelated to changing the world (like cooking.) Without stopping to get scared or think it through I sent a DM to Gabbi-"Hey, have you ever thought about/would you want to start a side hustle basically just selling food to families & moms like me?" We met at a bar a few days later and started our business plan on a napkin.
I'm so grateful to everyone who has supported me and my family the past year, and to my business partner Gabbi for saying yes to a mom of 5 who is a big (30 year) old hot mess who is technologically inept ❤
I wrote this terrible 😂 ode to all the Mamas who went from "professional couch cuddler" to "professional chauffeur" in the blink of an eye. 💌 Ahem.
. I see you there mama - - ~ You did work in the carpool line today between school drop offs.
- ~ You thought about walking in but your pajama pants didn't match that nice blouse you were wearing. - Me too girl. Me too.
- ~ I saw you again in the afternoon - sending emails and making phone calls in the quiet before the kids climbed in.
- ~Did you get to one or two grocery stores today? Did you do work in your car in a parking lot before a meeting? - ~ Ya, I see you there mama - - ~ Drinking that coffee like a boss in the car instead of on your couch with your babies cause they are “all grown up” and in school. - ~ And just when you thought it was over for today, your oldest little dude needs a ride to Karate. - ~ Oh mama.. I see you there … at the gas station around the corner. Let's carpool next time. 😜

The gorgeous @autumnbrookehanson joined us at #mops this morning to speak some mega #truth into our hearts. I’m probably butchering this quote Brooke, but I’m gonna try anyway “Our loving Creator grieves when we attempt to be something he did not create us to be.” Can I get an AHEM!?!? Such powerful, liberating truth. We need to stop running around trying (and failing) to be the mom WE think we are supposed to be and just BE the mom HE created us to be, resting in His blessed assurance that we are ok. We really are doing things right. Our kids are going to turn out just fine👌🏻😉

The biggest fruit-lover I know claimed to have never had a pineapple before🍍ate the whole thing.
Today in my Mops group we talked about body image and insecurities that we all have and face. I was pretty shocked when I heard 97% of women struggle with body image issues, 100% of them being moms.
I am guilty of saying negative thoughts about my body in the past but am trying every day to have freedom. Freedom from comparison and judgement. I need to remind myself more that beauty is so much more than appearance. Beauty is your heart, your spirit, your actions... all of you. So to all the women or moms struggling with this, I hope you can find your own personal beauty outside of looking in the mirror at any flaws you may see and find your freedom too 💕
