Some of you may already know this, but I also manage a fitness blog called Eat. Blog. Run. I started it back in 2010 when I gathered 12 running women bloggers to run a 200 mile relay with me! It was such a fun party that we have continued the blog and are amping it […]
It’s that time of year again my friends… Movember, it has begun! If you remember our post from last year, my husband Jordan shared his reasons for participating in Movember and Moustaches for Good.

This darling little boy is making me want to get out into the woods camping one more time before it gets too cold. Watch his cuteness: Any last minute camping trips in your future?
While I talk craft and family here at Make and Takes, I also co-host an amazing blogging party called SocialLuxe Lounge.
