Over the last 34 years of my married life, I have planted a garden many times. My focus has always been on reaping the blessings that it would produce. It wasn’t until my children were grown and I spent more time in the garden that I began to understand that there are many life lessons to learn in the garden. Lessons that could have helped me in all aspects of my life. Whether you are young and single, married with small children, raising teenagers, empty-nesters, widowed, etc., follow me each week as I take you into my garden and share the little life lessons that I am learning.

Welcome to our new series: Our Little Life Hacks! Check back each week for a quick trick or tip to simplify and improve your life. Remember, little steps help us to stick with a new change or habit.
So I’ll start off this new series with a rather simple hack. I like to get at least one more use out of the plastic grocery bags I get each week from our shopping trips, so I use them as trash bags or liners for my small bathroom trash cans. This also saves me from buying those specialty small-size trash bags. (#frugalliving) We also have a small trash can in the nursery since our youngest child is not fully potty-trained yet, so I use the bags there too. (Smaller trash can means it gets emptied often, hence less smells. We can count that as a bonus tip! haha)
A new series is coming to the blog! As you know, we are all about taking little steps and making little changes in order to improve various areas of our lives. Small changes are easier to make and we are more likely to stick with it! So drumroll please….
So if you follow us on instagram, I hinted that this post was coming. As I’m sure you’ve noticed, we’ve taken a bit of a break from posting regularly during the summer. With the school year quickly approaching, you can expect to see more posts from us again. So here’s a little something to hold you over through the end of July. 😊
