Pencils of Promise Part Three Day Four Welcome back to my Pencils of Promise trip day four and five. Part of what Pencils of Promise does in Laos and in the other countries that they help with is they offer a WASH program and TS (teacher support). Their WASH program is to really help the […]

Pencils of Promise Part Two Thank you for joining me back again to see and hear more about my trip from Laos. As a reminder, almost two years ago, the Rising Tide Society held an online summit in order to raise money to build a school with an organization called the Pencils of Promise. We […]

Pencils of Promise Part One Let’s start at the beginning. Nearly 2 years ago, The Rising Tide Society held an online summit where creative entrepreneurs could tune in for a donation as little as $1.00. The online summit ended up raising $50,000. That was what we needed to build a school with Pencils of Promise […]

Appleton Family Photographer | Kea’s Family Now that I’m a little bit older and have figured out that my family ACTUALLY IS important. It’s sessions like these that really touch my heart. When we are younger, we don’t really yet realize just how much it means to have family around and love these people with […]

Welcome to the world baby Jack!!! My goodness he was so sweet and tiny and adorable!! I selfishly got to hold him for a good chunk of time and it certainly gave me a bit of baby fever. But – alas…no more babies for us. Which is probably why I swoon over babies, haha. Katie […]
