Eli Benjamin’s Birth Story

Our third child, Eli Benjamin, was welcomed into our family on September 20th, 2014, two weeks before his due date. He has stolen our hearts already and fits in as though he was always here.

High Protein: No Powder

High Protein: No Powder

Guest post by Tiffany from Don't Waste the Crumbs. Early in our marriage, my husband and I spent nearly three years living on as little as possible so that we could pay off our debt. The process of becoming debt free requires a lot of determination and discipline, but as many of you might know, the work doesn't stop when the last bill is paid. Poor spending decisions are a hard habit to break and if we're not careful, we'll end up right where we started in the first place! That's exactly ... Continue Reading...
