Valentine’s Day DIY Inspirations

Hi!!! Are you the type who gives out little Valentines to friends, partners and or children’s class? If yes and need some fresh ideas, check out these favorites of mine! I only do Valentines (small, tiny even) gifts for the girls. Last year I surprised them with cupcakes that my favorite baker made but usually, I just do a card, with candies, and that’s it. This year I want to do something special again and after going through Google and Pinterest found a few that looked easy, fun and beautiful. 1. Jovie loves Macarons and when I saw this ,

I wanted to do something for the boys. Having two girls, it’s never that difficult to find little fun things for the girls’ goodie bags or stocking stuffers. But boys, that’s a bit of a dark zone for me! So the other day, while browsing the toy aisle at the BX on base, I came upon these: Fresh Metal Slickers.

Crafting for the Holidays

Hello again!! What have you been up to lately? We did a bit of traveling up north during the girls’ school break and I’ve been busy helping organize a Christmas fair and doing a bit of crafting for the event also.

We have another gymnast in the house! It’s only been four weeks but Jovie seems to be enjoying it. This is her fifth attempt at organized activity (she’s quit three of them) and I haven’t seen signs of not wanting to go. In the past, it’s usually after the second session that she’ll start to balk. Besides gymnastics, Jovie also does theatre but she really doesn’t like it and only goes because we think it’s something she’ll (eventually) like. Ha ha! I know, we’re so bad!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  Just a little love post from me to you. Hope you have a wonderful wonderful day today! We’re not one to celebrate Valentine’s day by going out for a romantic dinner etc but if there’s a special day to celebrate love, kindness, giving, and anything nice, we’re there! I cannot wait for the girls to come home. Again, we’re not having anything super special but a little extra love, yummy cupcakes from my favorite cake lady, cards and decors will make their end of the week (and start of their school break) extra lovely. Take care and I shall
