About Us

Everyday Rituals is a collaborative blog created by Michelle Bostinelos and Sarah Kolbe. Michelle & Sarah met in Kindergarten in 1982 and developed a friendship through their mutual love of cabbage patch kids and drawing!  They remain close friends today while Sarah lives in New Jersey and Michelle is back in their home state of Iowa.

Whether it be from a Digital-SLR camera or an iPhone,  Michelle & Sarah make it a daily ritual to record their everyday lives. Everyday Rituals was created to inspire others to capture the everyday through photography and words.  At Everyday Rituals you will find inspiration, tips and tricks to recording life’s moments from both Michelle & Sarah.  You will also find hand-designed scrapbooking cards (by Sarah) to use in your memory keeping projects.

Thanks so much for visiting this blog!
