9 Books About Martin Luther King Jr. For Kids Under 7

Social Good/ Social Time

I remember hunting for an age-appropriate book about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to read to my daughter last year and coming up short. We were visiting family out of town and none of the stores had anything, even Target (my go-to store). We found a story time about Martin Luther King Jr. at the zoo, but the book was really meant for kids ages 7 and up, not the little ones trying to grasp what was being shared. So this year I looked up a few book options in advance. Keep reading for 9 book options that help introduce kids younger than 7 to who Martin Luther King Jr. was, why he’s celebrated, and why he’s still so important. Read more

3 Tips for Art Nouveau Maternity Photos

Birthing/ Pregnancy

What’s your favorite part of pregnancy? For some it might be the ability to eat more of something they love because, hey, cravings. Others enjoy the hormone changes and embrace just everything preggo. Me? I really, really look forward to the maternity photos (OK yes, and giving into the cravings haha). Maternity photos are super important for moms to get just one day where they can feel and look like the birthing goddess they are. So many moms – Especially second kiddo and beyond – feel just kinda blah about themselves during pregnancy and these photos are a chance to shine, a chance to have something that shows your pregnancy. So why not have fun with them? I went with a sort of art nouveau photoshoot since I love that theme (my wedding was also art nouveau). Keep reading to see all the pics and grab some tips for your own art nouveau maternity photos! Read more
