Hooray for another week of Friday Five! It is always fun to share the things that I am loving lately. Whether it is a shop, product, blog post, or experience, I love to share the joy. I know that in the mess and chaos of every day life, we can sometimes overlook the good. So my hope is that five on Friday will be a time to reflect on the good from the simple to the grand. Here we go!

One way I am trying to add in some extra goodness into our bodies lately is through smoothies. we love adding in fruits and veggies to make a tasty smoothie. Having straws on hand has made this so much easier and using Claire’s Nuby Thirsty Kids Flip It Active Cup. Having a lid and a straw makes things much less messy!
One of the books we gave my oldest this year for Christmas, was 365 Bible Answers for Curious Kids. I thought it was perfect for him because he is constantly thinking and having so many questions. Every night you can read through a different question, an answer, and scripture. This book is perfect for kids ages 7-10 as it makes them think a little bit. Tommy Nelson is generously partnering with me in offering this book as a giveaway, so make sure to head over to Instagram to enter!
Last weekend, my oldest had the idea to go geocatching. He had heard about it and thought would be fun. Honestly, we were a little unsure, but once I downloaded the app, we realized it seemed possible. There were tons of places to go within 5 miles of our house. It was a really fun way to spend the afternoon together and it was free!
Last year, I hosted Bloom for the first time. It was a success and now is a yearly thing. Bloom is a night just for moms full of encouragement and inspiration. There are speakers, food, raffle prizes, and swag bags! If you are a mama in the Charleston, South Carolina area you should join! Or if you want to make a little road trip. The tickets go on sale February 1st. I am so excited about the speakers this year and the shops I am lining up for showering the mamas with some love! By the way, if you are a shop let me know if you would be interested in collaborating on this.
Next Friday I am kicking off a new series, Intentional Living, on the blog. The first Friday of the month, I will have an inspiring mama sharing on the blog about how they are intentional in a specific area and how it helps them to thrive. I am so excited about our first mama who is sharing next week! It is going to be so good. Here is a hint, we are going into all things meal planning!
What are five things you are loving? I hope you have a beautiful Friday and choose to find the good, even in the mess.
