Bedtime Business + Bookroo

I grew up loving books. A lot. I got it from my Mom. She showed me how to get lost in another world. It was always one of my favorite ways to pass the time besides annoying my little sister.

A new study by the American Academy of Pediatrics shows that reading daily to young children, starting in infancy, can help with language acquisition and literacy skills.

No surprise, our kid’s rooms are stuffed with books. Book baskets, book shelves, book stacks. We love books. We love spending time meandering libraries to find new books to fall in love with.

When I was approached by Jane from Bookroo, I was soooo excited! The very reason Bookroo came to life is to enable and empower parents to build their children’s book collections in an affordable and exciting way through curated monthly book deliveries. We believe in the power and impact of the written word in the life of a child, and believe it’s never too early to start reading to children!

What! Sold! So, what is Bookroo? Bookroo is a monthly membership to begin building a strong library for your little ones. Depending on the age of your kids, you can choose a box of 3 picture board books or a book of 2 picture books. Since we have Mads, we chose two picture books, which everyone can enjoy.

Bedtime business is always punctuated with books to settle us down and help us drift off to sleep, and I love that I get to incorporate such an amazing company into our daily routines.

I know, I know. How do you get started? Ok, here you go. Visit Bookroo and choose your book options and a monthly plan. Bookroo has extended ALB readers a promo code for a 3rd box FREE with the code: LEBEAU.

Friday Favorite | Be Still Clothing Co.

You don’t see me much in front of the camera, but these are too good for me to hide behind the lens. Be Still Clothing Co. is one of our favorites. Faith-based, fashionable tees. Throw in leopard-print shoes and tutus, and I am suddenly a model.

“Be Still Clothing Company was started in December 2013 as a means to bring hope to the hopeless, strength to the weak, and comfort to those in pain. Exodus 14:14 says “The Lord will fight for you; you need only to BE STILL,” and Psalm 46:10 says “BE STILL and know that I am God.” These verses have been a source of strength to so many in their time of need.  Be Still Clothing Company wants to share this truth with others through our clothing in a fashionable and comfortable way.”

If I can teach this green-eyed, blonde-haired ball of sunshine anything, it is to be herself boldly, unabashedly, bravely. We talk a lot about being genuine – genuinely loving people, genuinely taking interest in people, and genuinely loving people. These are some of her best qualities, and reinforcing them with a cute leotard only helps!

RUN, do not walk, and get your Be Still tees for all of your loved ones for Christmas. The deadline for Christmas orders is next week, so be sure to buy them out! Tell them I sent you!

Thank you, Marissa, for letting us showcase your beautiful, inspiring tees. We absolutely adore your company and all that you stand for.
