So I’ve been
harping eh….encouraging you a lot lately about what a perfect time the fall is for getting back on track with your health goals. I’ve shared How to get Rewarded with Things You Desire by Making Simple healthy choices and also how to Beat Seasonal Flu for you and Give a Child a Shot at Life!

It’s no secret, as parents we’re bound to disappoint our children at times. And, some of the time, we actually need to disappoint them! Although hard at the time, disappointments in smaller things (not getting to go get something as a result of their actions or even having to miss out on something because of an important reason) are great for them as it builds their character and helps them learn how to deal with it later on in life when it comes to huge things. Other times, however, you disappoint them and it weighs heavily down on you because it was something you truly wanted them to be able to do and that they could have if you as the adult had made different choices.
If you find yourself laughing at this picture because it’s not beyond the realm of plausibility that this could happen to your husband if you left him alone for a night with the kids….you should probably watch Moms’ Night Out.

Two Years. Apparently that’s the length of time that we’re destined to stay in one home, at least up until this point in our marriage. You see, big changes are coming to the Elliott household once again as we prepare for yet another move!! This time, however, instead of moving thousands of miles we’ll be moving about 8 minutes away to the neighboring town of Lindale. This will be a much easier transition than normal since that’s actually already where Amber attends school, does ballet, our church is located, and all sorts of other day to day life activities take place!

Being a small business owner is as exciting as it is exhausting, and as rewarding as it is frustrating! There is so much that goes into it that you would never imagine when you’re getting ready to dive in — no matter what type of work you’re considering pursuing. Heather and I (you remember her–she’s the lovely Arrow&Wren photographer behind many of my fashion shoots and one of my local besties) were having a girls day out the other day and were talking about how anytime we get asked how to dive into our lines of work respectively we both give the response of “Hold up a second now–you have a LOT you need to know first!” We also talked about how thankful we were for other small business owners in our same fields who were willing to share their “tricks of the trade” and point us to valuable resources.

I’ve always had a strong feeling that kids should pitch in and contribute to the family, but until this past summer I somewhat underestimated just how much young children are actually able to do! It wasn’t until we instituted the Ticket System that I realized just how much my children could do–and even enjoyed doing. This was especially true of Amber who at 6 1/2 I realized could do a TON around the house. This has been such a huge blessing to me as I work from home–and it’s been great for her as she learns to contribute to the family and also gets rewarded for it through our system! She does everything on this list well and consistently–though obviously she’s not doing every chore on this list every day or even every week. I love that with the ticket system she has the option to pick and choose depending on what she feels like, what needs done, and what she would like to earn towards. There will be times when I’ll tell her to do something–but even then we have no bad attitudes since she knows she’ll be earning tickets for it (and that if she does have a bad attitude she will still have to do the task but then lose the tickets)!

As you know there are four kids in my family–the youngest of which is my “baby” sister Hannah. Even though she’s 8 years younger than I am, as fate would have it both she and my hubby are starting their Junior year of college this year–they’re planning on graduating in Spring 2016. It sounds like this year is going to be a CRAZY one for both of them, as well! She’s over at Bob Jones University in South Carolina, so she’s far away from us here in Texas, and also the rest of my family who are all still in Wyoming. Because of that having a great way to keep in communication with all the rest of us is super important for her!

The next time you see a special event taking place in or around DC on the TV I want you to stop a moment. I want you to look past the President, Commander, or foreign dignitary and take a few moments to look at the rows of men and women in the background. See them there? The ones standing straight at attention, with meticulously pressed uniforms, clean shaven faces, and dignified looks on their faces? Those, my friends, are the men and women of this country’s Honor Guards.
