courtneysnowden This flu that's going around is ma-jor. It's made its way through our fam and Blythe is its latest casualty. She's been sick for daaays...too miserable and sad to even get out of bed. Then this....out of nowhere...filling the quiet house. Medicine and time are healing her body, music is healing her soul. Totally cheesy but totally true 4d
  •   andimarshall I love your sweet family. So glad to hear you're all on the mend! 4d
  •   aimerd Yuck! 4d
  •   schneiders801 Darn! 4d

courtneysnowden I remember Will and I sitting down with our kids years ago and talking to them about history, talking to them about the hard and the uncomfortable stuff. I remember looks of complete confusion from the littlest ones. It was unfathomable to them that people treated people differently just because of their skin color. It was confusing to them that kids couldn't go to the same schools or play at the same playgrounds or eat at the same restaurants as other kids...kids who looked just like them. I remember tears welling up in eyes and little hearts that were clearly wounded. Then we talked about Dr. King. We talked about his work and his courage, and how he changed history...FOR THEM. He said "Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?" It's a really good question. #MLK 6d
  •   mommytatia We just got home from seeing the movie Selma- I have always had the deepest love and admiration for Dr. King. I am so grateful for his great love and courage- he changed the world. Our baby girl is bi racial so this day brings even more joy and gratitude and love to our hearts and home. Thank you so much for sharing this. 6d
  •   lesnels8 6d
  •   agtimr I love this! Thanks for sharing!! 6d
  •   suzannejhart I pray I do my best at raising my girls to have a pure heart and to love all! 6d
  •   memccall 6d
  •   pollydove LoVe .... 6d
  •   beckandtheboys As fellow wifey and mama I say amen. My husband and I sat down and had this very talk with our boys today and explained to them how amazingly blessed we are to live in the time we do, they understood the best that their innocent little hearts could. They need to know that Dr. King played an important role in their lives, simply in the fact that their grandparents were able to marry and produce my husband their dad, but also that the work he began isn't finished yet but that as long as we remember where we come from we will be able to press on and hopefully someday it will be completed. 6d

courtneysnowden After weeks and weeks and weeks...our pretty paper whites have finally bloomed. And after all that waiting the question still remains...how can something so dainty and sweet smell soooo rank??? #myflowerssmelllikepeepee 1w

courtneysnowden About a week ago (so the neighbors wouldn't start whispering about us) we took down all the Christmas lights, garlands, and the glowing Santa and reindeer (whoa that sounds tacky) from outside our house. Inside the house though, we've still been rockin' around the Christmas tree and basking in all things merry. Alas, the day has come, it's all coming down. We're bidding adieu to our most favorite stuff in all the land. I suppose putting Christmas away should feel refreshing but really it just feels a little depressing. It already looks so dark and empty up in hurrrrr. Cue Cindy Lou Who's "Where Are You Christmas???" Hit it girl... 2w
  •   sicelybuxton THIS is why I love you more with every post... 2w
  •   pollydove I'm still workin' on mine. Mom said to me, "Is your house still cute without your Christmas up?" Guess what? It isn't. 😟 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @imnae I know, my etsy shop has been empty for.ever. 😬 If you want a house now I could surely make you one or do you just want to wait until the holidays roll around again? 2w
  •   imnae @courtneysnowden whenever you have time! They are adorable!!! You can paypal me an invoice or if some other way is easier for you just let me know ;) rma0120@aol.com 2w
  •   missfurnellie Epic Christmas awesomeness. And I actually like taking down Christmas stuff, after the third of Jan usually. But I don't like Christmas being done. 2w
  •   see_jane ~ love this shot and every hoarding passion you have. 1w
  •   mamalovextwo After you take it down it feels SO empty and drab! It is totally depressing. I hate it too. Good to know I'm not the only one. 4d
  •   courtneysnowden @mamalovextwo soooo empty and drab! I'm slowly getting used to it but those first few days were brutal! 4d

courtneysnowden For 12 years now, our Zoe girl has been the best friend our kids could've ever hoped for. She doesn't care how many followers you have, if you're rockin' the hottest styles, carrying the newest phone, or running with the coolest crowd...she just simply adores you because you're you and doesn't ask for much in return. A scratch behind the ears, a bowl of food at dinner time and a run around the yard are her only friendship requirements. Even though she's hit her "normal life expectancy," we pray she decides to stay around awhile, because life just won't be the same without her. Happy Happy 12th Birthday to our favorite puppy in the whole wide world. 2w

courtneysnowden #tbt I remember thinking they were so old while I was taking this picture. 7 years seems like a lifetime ago and yet a blink of the eye too. That old saying "time flies" really is true. And it flies whether you're having fun or not, so make the right choice. 2w

courtneysnowden There are so many things in life we simply can't control. So my hope for this New Year is to focus on the things that I can. To be more accepting and to be less judgmental. To take more chances and to worry less about failures. To embrace the differences in others, instead of being afraid of them. To focus on the ones I hold dear and sometimes even the ones I don't hold quite as close. To remember that the small things, are often the most important things, in the grand scheme of things. To give more, to love more, to be more. So here's to 2015 my friends...Let's do this.

courtneysnowden I imagine it's a little hard to have a birthday on the 23rd of Dec. Christmas festivities are in full swing and life is Busy with a capital B. He tells us not to fuss over him and to definitely not buy him presents. But we're plugging our ears, singing na na na na, and pretending we can't hear. We may be on our way to a Christmas party, but secretly I'm really celebrating him. Happy Happy birthday to my best guy, my husband, their daddy, our Will Tom. 1mon

courtneysnowden S is for Snowden...and Sibley...and Smith...and SANTA!!! I was totally inspired by @marthastewart's festive monogram wreath, just added a little vintage kitsch to the mix #marthastewartcrafts #ABMholidayspirit 1mon
  •   tamiv That wreath is fabulous! 1mon
  •   mandihong Absolutely fabulous!! 1mon
  •   pollydove SOOOO cute! What a great idea!!! Did you use supa strong, extra powered, bionic glue so the ornies don't fall off?!! 1mon
  •   courtneysnowden @pollydove I actually wired them on because hot glue expands and contracts with weather, so you can't really use it on anything outdoors. Yeah, figured that out the hard way after 20+ fallen, shattered ornaments on a Valentine's wreath I made years ago! Also on the @marthastewart tutorial she wired then on and it reminded me of my last debacle 1mon
  •   sayyesblog Love it 1mon
  •   mamamo613 Check out this wreath! We gotta remember this one for next year! @carriepie321 so cute. 4w
  •   carriepie321 @mamamo613 I love it! 4w

courtneysnowden Sometimes when you and your girl set out to make an "Ugly Christmas Sweater," it kinda morphs into a supa dupa "Cute Christmas Sweater." You know...in a gaudy, grannie-ish sorta way. #ABMholidayspirit #vintagechristmas 1mon
