Black Friday is upon us. Shopping has never been something I enjoyed. Waking up early, braving the cold, crazy shoppers and long lines for some discount towels is not my gig. Amazon is my gig. Supporting small business is my passion. Check out American Express and their movement to #shopsmall this Saturday.

Interested in supporting a mom who is working to balance life and kids and a dream? Check out these friends who are all mompreneurs- creating a business from their kitchen tables, working late hours after dinner has been served and littles have been tucked in for the night. I “do life” with these women and hope you find something you love this Friday!



You know those funny, cute, inspiring things your kids say? Totlosophy will turn the beautiful words your children speak into works of art or note cards. Request a custom order or browse through the beautiful cards Diane has created in her etsy shop! You can also follow Diane over on here on her blog!


Diane my daughter’s recipe into something that will hang in our country house forever.

For the love! Christmas on the farm…if only I had one more baby.



When I first met Michelle it was love at first sight. We were paired to organize a healthy living/gardening PTO event and we had a blind “date” Starbucks. It was like meeting a long lost friend. In the middle of our conversation, she mentioned she makes deodorant. MIchelle is the co-creator of Ambre Blend‘s natural deodorant– 100% pure, all natural, toxin free. And it smells AMAZING!! My personal favorite is Solace. Visit Ambre Blend’s site and check out their Facebook page as well!



Last weekend my daughter and I attended a local craft fair and ran into an old co-worker of mine. Kim is a nurse turned co founder of Knot & Thread. Kim and Annie HAND SEW(!!!) the most beautiful all natural baskets. These simple beauties are the PERFECT holiday gifts. The Millie basket has a proud spot on my nightstand. Check out their Facebook page to shop for their baskets along with body scrubs, gift tags and other goodies!



There are so many great small businesses that I would love to share so the fifth spot on my “Friday I’m in Love” list goes to these local ladies:

So there you have it!

Find what you are in love with this week and share!

I would love to hear from you!!
