Beyond Jellybeans and Easter Grass: Easter Basket Fillers You'll Want to Keep!

Easter baskets!! Filled with candy and horrible Easter grass (do people still use that? We don't...) and toys that will end up in the trash in no time flat!



Unless... We try to be a little more intentional about what we put in those baskets. A beautiful book or two? A few homemade sweets (okay fine, and some jellybeans too, I'm not a monster)? And maybe some carefully chosen gifts from small shops you'd like to support? I've got some ideas (and coupon codes! and giveaway items!) for you:

My Sunday Best, Volume 93: The Great Hat Roundup

Happy Sunday! Peter was a little bit devastated that I left him home after last week's experiment... The rest of us were much happier and more focused, though.

7 Steps to Praying the Rosary (Every Day!)

I've been talking over on Instagram about praying the rosary and thought I'd share over here as well - blogs are forever, after all, and Instagram stories are only for 24 hours!

Let me preface this whole post by saying the following:

I'm 31 years old.

I only started praying a daily rosary last year.

So... Am I a lifelong devotee? Or an expert of any sort?

Nope.

But... Am I someone who overcame laziness and reluctance to find value in a centuries-old devotion?

Yes!

If you've ever felt even the slightest nudge to start praying the rosary more often (or at all!), Lent is the perfect time to start - the 40 days (not including Sundays) are the perfect amount of time to instill a new habit, and at the very least, you will have managed to memorize all the mysteries and prayers by Easter!

So how can you pray it? Let me tell you what helped me!
