Kate’s Joyful Corner

My joyful corner this week is really pulling on my heart strings because it’s so stinking cute!

My husband works from home four days each week, and the fifth day he works from his physical office at work. And with him working from home the majority of the time, the boys and I have really gotten used to having him around.

So on that day he’s in the office, the boys and I just miss him like crazy! So we’ve started recording these little “we miss you” videos for him, and we text them to him throughout his day. 

And because my oldest sees me Voxing, Voxer is a voice recording app, with my business coach and my own health coaching clients, he asked me if he could send a voice memo to his dad too. And because little kids’ voices are just about the cutest thing in the world, I included the recording of Dexter memo’ing his dad and I promise you won’t want to miss his sweet words of love!

So, this week I’m grateful for all the joy Dexter brought me and the love for his dad.
