• Decor Trends We’re Moving Past with the New Move

    If you’ve been reading our posts over the past few months, you might have guessed from a little hint-dropping that we’re itching to move again. Or I might have just come right out and said it 😆. Putting it out in the Universe and making moves to actually make a move so to speak. It will be home number 8 for the Pack, and this time we’re hoping to inch a little closer to the Lake…and our favorite donut shop. Here are a few home decor trends we tried out in this house that won’t be making it on the moving truck:

  • The Amazon Finds We Buy Over & Over Again

    Whenever we get an opportunity to support a small shop, or a neighborhood gem, we take it. We love being a part of this community, in all forms, and love championing the little guy as often as possible (because we’re the little guy, too). But for certain purchases, it makes life so. much. easier. to click the buy now button on the amazon app instead of hitting up multiple stores around town. Here are a few of our favorites that we not only think are the best deals, but also must-haves in our home:

  • 7 Simple Swaps that Made Life Better

    A lot of people I know went into 2020 with a keyword or a phrase that was going to embody their intention for the New Year. Mine hasn’t been a word per se, more of a feeling. I wanted this new year, new decade really, to be more intentional. To feel different. I wanted to stop celebrating the idea of being busy, and instead do every action with purpose. Not just the big ones, because the small ones add up to be big ones anyway. The changes we listed out below have made such a meaningful impact on our lives, and I think you’ll be surprised that some may take mere minutes to put into action:

  • #NixonPack Valentine’s Vows

    I started and deleted this one a few times. Because I never want to come off as preachy, or perfect. Whose marriage is perfect anyway? It’s work. The best, most loving, rewarding work. But there are certain “vows” per se that really work for us and our little family unit. This post is not a one fits all; but if even one tweak helps you in some way, I’ll be so glad we put this out in our corner of the internet. Here are our marriage musts, and some new ones we’re striving for:

  • Sunday Scrolls: Best Finds of the Week (Feb. 9th)

    This week was a doozy. But one that filled my cup to the tippy top. Jon was gone on a work trip and I quickly realized that caring for our tornado toddler, three elderly pups, work, home, and everything in between was a lot. But after the first (very long) day, I found the joy in all of it. So many people do this single parent thing so beautifully, out of necessity (you are rockstars). And I relished the fact that I got to have so much one on one time with my little man. He is truly delightful. That said, we are so happy to have the triangle back together and looking forward to the week ahead! Here are some of our favorite finds we couldn’t wait to share:

Here’s what we consider when the first price wasn’t the right price:

  • Must-Follow Insta Accounts for Instant Inspo

    I recently did a clean-out of sorts over on the ‘gram. You know that whole movement making the circuit, “if it doesn’t bring you joy” then unfollow? I’m more about, if something is feeling stale, uninspired, same old same old, then I have to go. Time is too precious to have a little app suck the life out of you. If you’re spending any time on social media; it should leave you feeling invigorated, motivated, excited. Here are some of the accounts I look to for just that:
