Weekend Happenings {June 20th – June 22nd}

Weekend happenings

About the middle of the week I find myself wondering what I’m going to do over the weekend with my family. I usually always come up with an exceptionally great list of ALL the things I want to do but somehow I only seem to accomplish one or two of them. This summer I’ve decided to do something out of the ordinary and worry less about the everyday things {dishes + laundry + cleaning bathrooms} that need to get done. I have realized that I need to spend more time enjoying my kids when they’re little and taking the time to reconnect with my husband {this is so important in a marriage}!! I’ve complied a list of some of the things happening in + around Detroit this weekend. Grab your family or just your husband! Just remember to take the time and eNjOy every minute of it!!!

Hi Detroit Mommas!!! I'm Annette Rioux, co-founder of Detroit Moms Blog. I'm a work-at-home momma raising my family in Novi. I am passionate about creating a healthy + happy life for the ones I love most in this world, my husband Joel and our 2 boys JB + JJ. I am working on getting my small creative business off the ground {annette's creation's}, I homeschool our 2 boys {age 5 + age 3}, and help run this wonderful blog {DMB}! I was given this opportunity to stay home with my family when I was laid off from my Interior Design career mid-January 20-13. I was a stressed, unhappy mom wanting more freedom in my life at the time. We made many sacrifices to do this, we work everyday to keep me home raising our family. I love design, DIY, creating a healthy lifestyle, entertaining, reading, learning, coffee and just being a MOM. I'm learning how acceptance, letting go, and choosing happiness can lead me to where I need to be.
