August 2016

Hello friends! I hope that you have been really enjoying this summer. In Buffalo we have been dealing with a lot of hot days, so we spent a lot of our time in the water! Thanks for hanging around here as I changed my focus for a few months. It was the perfect break I needed to spend the summer better connecting with my kids and my husband. I really want to thank you for understanding, because as much as I missed writing and sharing, it was just the break I needed. I knew in order for me to really appreciate what I do here, I needed to make sure I was doing it the right way. Continue reading Let’s Get Back to It…

Hi there! If you are used to following my blog posts, you have have noticed I’ve been a bit MIA! This is not due to any lack of content, I’m always coming up with new post ideas, but instead a change in focus. Much has changed in my personal life in the last few months, most of it all pointing at putting my role as a wife & mother first. I do not say this as if I am “settling” on these roles, more so that I am taking them seriously. I feel that women in general take on too many tasks, and try to be more than they really need to be… which leads many of us to being stressed & burned out. I don’t want that for myself, for my family, or for my blog! So I am taking a bit of a step back from writing. To spend a few more minutes snuggling, or listening to E sing an original song she is currently ad-libing, or coloring with C before the sun is even up. But in all honesty, I might just be taking a hot shower or washing the sink full of dishes.

Life is busy for all of us, but it is how we prioritize and choose our happiness that counts. I love blogging, I love the people I have connected with… but this season of my life is calling me to change my focus. Just for a while. I am certainly not gone, I have notebooks full of ideas & an Etsy store I’d love to open. But for now, I am finding joy in the two roles that fill me up the most.

Feel free to keep using the recipes and ideas here at MadeByMeggs.com as a reference, my webpage and social media are not going anywhere! And if you want to keep up with me I continue to post daily on my Instagram page.

Stay tuned!

goals july 2015

Ah, summer is finally here. July is upon us! This is my favorite month out of the year. One, because the 4th of July has always been one of my all-time favorite holidays. This was magnified once I married Hubbs, because it is also HIS favorite & his family goes ALL-OUT in every sense of the word! And now with our kids, I am so excited to share and start holiday traditions, in general, with them. And TWO, this is my birthday month. This year I will turning an awesome 30! And I feel like this is the first birthday (minus turning 21) where I feel like I am hitting some crazy milestone. So stick around because later this month I will be sharing the special way I’m planning to celebrate my birthday with my kids. But for now I’ll leave you with my 6 brand new goals for this month. It’s all about keeping organized, but also enjoying everything summer has to offer… Continue reading {July} Keeping summer productive & fun

Today. The first day of June. And my first thought is… where the heck did May go? May gives you this sense of “summer is on it’s way but the crazy hasn’t hit yet.” June is more like “Readysetgogogogogogo” and then that doesn’t stop until September! Don’t get me wrong, summer is my favorite season. Ironically because there are so many things in our area to do. I just lack a set of mental brakes that tell me “ok, just sit back and enjoy this sunny day.” Continue reading {June} Summer planning

Goals for May 2015 - More at MadeByMeggs(dot)com

So it’s May, the sun has been shining all morning, the warmer weather is in the air… and I am feeling a bit more motivated than usual. So I wanted to share some my goals for this month. Both personal & blog related. I have spotted this idea from various blogs I read, but more specifically my friend Hello Monday Design, did this a while back. Plus publically marking down my goals, it just sparks something for me, so I have to share!

Keeping yourself on track and motivated is one of the things I struggle with. Sure my head is full of ideas that keep me up at night, pondering. It’s the lack of action or time to complete that I never get to. So each month I will be featuring  a post for my goals. Hopefully you will feel motivated to join me. I strongly believe that once you “put it out there” for people to see, you begin to feel more accountable. Continue reading {May} Sunshine, Dandelions, & Motivation!
