Happy Monday!! It has been a busy few weeks wrapping up summer and going back to school, first remotely, and now in person!
The boys were beyond excited to be back at school and not staring at a screen…it just suits both of their personalities and learning styles better! And while I had some anxiety around them going back, I am thankful to get back to routine and something that resembles some normalcy.
If all of this has taught us anything, it’s to not take the little things for granted! This is the first year I do not have a little at home with me during the day. It is definitely bittersweet, but I am excited to have more time to dedicate to Crisp Collective, and to actually finish a thought now and then! Haha!
So with that, here is a recap of what I’ve shared lately!

We headed to Broken Bow with friends as a last hoorah before remote learning started!
Our cabin was called The Rust Bucket and the amount of detail and love that Courtney and Aaron of Tin Star & Company put into this cabin is unreal! The pics do not do it justice!
Our kids especially loved the creek that runs behind the property! Everything is set up with families in mind, and it was such a perfect weekend!

I reveiwed the good and the bad of the top six HERE.
Our Annual “Glamping” Trip
We spent Labor Day weekend “glamping” with a few other families, as we have the last few years! Each family had their own tiny cabin, and we spent most of our time swimming, fishing and making memories! I am thankful more than ever for this time with my boys!
I am also SO thankful for each of you! Thanks for taking time to read here! I hope to provide lots of easy recipes, home decor ideas, everyday style and deals over the next few months to make your life easier, and maybe a little prettier! Y’all are the best!!
