How fun is this idea!?
 
Because you still have a few days to impress the HECK out of your small people: DO THIS. (and try not to eat all of them) Don't say I didn't warn you.
Breakfast time in our house is truly one of my favorite times of day. We are all in the kitchen - all talking - all planning for the day. With the number of sports my small people play, this has be...

So the weather is finally getting nice again! But it turns out that, uh, I sort of forgot how to go outside. If you're also finding that you're more of a homebody than you'd like to be after the long, cold winter, I have some suggestions for boosting your week with outdoors time!  http://www.thehappiesthome.com/give-week-boost-plan-spend-time-outside/

The uncoupling isn't always conscious. Let's be real here. It's usually intense and messy and full of big feelings. But there are many opportunities for forgiveness, taking the high road, and reconciliation - whatever that looks like to you.
 
When we decided to get back together, Jon and I had to make a choice. We could either go to therapy and spend hours hashing out what we did to one another and why, or we could recognize that we both knew why, close the door on that period of our lives, and move forward with the unspoken promise that it would never happen again. We chose the second path.

Introduction

Meagan Francis is best known as the founder of The Happiest Home, a blog focused on helping women find more satisfaction in their lives as mothers.

Since its launch in 2009, The Happiest Home (formerly The Happiest Mom) has evolved from a personal blog focusing on Meagan’s life as a mom of five kids into a thriving community, inspired a 2010 book published in conjunction with Parenting magazine, and was named one of Babble.com’s top 100 blogs of 2011 and 2012.

Vlogger, Podcaster, Family Expert. Meagan’s newest project, The Kitchen Hour, brings families together in and around the kitchen by making the dinner-prep hour easier and more fun. 

The site brings together weekly podcasts, instructional videos, and helpful blog content in a single multi-media platform, delivering a fun, seamless kitchen experience (that keeps moms and dads from reaching for the pizza-delivery number.)

Meagan also contributes to a variety of publications and websites, including Babble.com and HGTVGardens.com.

Spokesperson, Speaker, and Media Personality. Meagan works with major brands, creating high-quality sponsored content that readers trust, connect with – and act on. Current and recent clients have included GoodNites, Goldfish, and Hallmark. 

Meagan is a frequent speaker at social media conferences, recently presenting at BlogHer, Bloggy Boot Camp, Mom 2.0, and Blissdom, and appears regularly in the media. 

Recent media appearances include Fox & Friends Weekend, MSNBC and the New York Times.

Content strategist and blog editor. Meagan worked with Experience Grand Rapids, the Convention and Visitors’ Bureau of Michigan’s second-largest city to conceptualize, create, and launch blogs for both their leisure and B2B departments. 

Ongoing, Meagan recruits talent, manages editorial and works with bloggers to ensure consistently high-quality content on both blogs. Her travel writing background make her a natural fit for social media and content positions in the tourism and lifestyle industries.
