  1. Love your intentions! A tip I have for you regarding packing lunches the night before...I have to pack two lunches three times a week (I can't even imagine life when I have to pack FOUR!!!), and I've found that if I do it while I'm prepping dinner or even right when the kids get home from school, it's more likely to get done. I've been good about doing it the night before since our mornings are so hectic, but if I save it until after the kids go to bed, I'm doing it very begrudgingly, so I try to do it earlier in late afternoon/early evening and then I don't have to worry about it!

    1. thank you, love. and that is a great idea!! i know some people who make all of them on Sunday afternoon for the week - which requires a lot of lunch boxes... and so excited for you (four- so amazing) hope you're feeling well. xo
