Hello, Local Milk Family! Emily here with your Fresh Milk Friday round-up! We hope you have a restful weekend planned and that some good weather finds you wherever you are. I’ve been thinking a lot this week about how hardworking parents of small children are doing right now. I know some days I feel so tired, and the idea that there is no end in sight to this quarantine looms heavy. I often feel completely tapped out on fun energy, sometimes even positive energy! If you are feeling this way, you are not alone, and this round-up is here to help. So, first, I’m sharing a bit of emergency advice for life and parenting that has saved me so many times when things just feel beyond reproach. And then I’ve collected 10 low waste activities and crafts for doing with little ones. 


Fresh Milk | A Mother’s Day at Home Gift List

Hello, Local Milk readers! This week on our Fresh Milk round-up we have put together a list of 10 slow-living inspired gift ideas for a Mother’s Day at home. Normally this is a holiday for fancy brunch and getting out and doing something special together, but for many, this year necessitates a somewhat different approach. Beth is currently holed up on a houseboat along the Tennessee River, making for a long-distance Mother’s Day celebration for her, Matt, & Eula.

We hope this list inspires you to think a little outside the box for what to send or drop on mom’s porch this year. If you’re going to be able to spend it together, we have you covered there, too! We also keep budget in mind since so many are facing financial uncertainty right now. Showing Mom love doesn’t have to be expensive!  (more…)
