Valentine’s Day Colorful Gifts for Her

Magenta Pillows- Arianna Belle

Thank goodness the colors of love are bright and cheery in the midst of winter, wouldn't you say? This year I made heart-printed treat bags for my husband and son that I'm going to fill with some of their favorite things. I also plan on adding some colorful flowers to our table and making something special for dinner. Although we like to … [Read more...]

Giveaway Winner {Starlet Glam}

Starlet Glam Button

Happy Friday! I'm certainly glad the weekend is almost here. I've been going it alone (my husband has been in Romania all week) and not only has my son been sick, but my 10 year old dog has started medication that has turned her into a puppy again. I'm happy she's feeling better, but I wasn't ready for this new burst of energy! This week I hosted a fantastic giveaway by Starlet Glam. Peggy, the founder, is an inspiring example of not giving up … [Read more...]

Starlet Glam {An Etsy Feature} + Giveaway

Red Velvet Cake Cream

I don't know about you, but once this stage of winter hits my skin has had enough! Just over a week ago, my family and I headed out to the mountains for a little break skiing. I'm just getting back into it and I'm definitely going to make it a regular activity. One thing I don't like about being on the mountain is the toll the wind and cold takes on my face and how dry the rest of my skin can get. I have found some products I really like, but I'm … [Read more...]

Giveaway Winner {Swanky Press} + A Little Blog Housekeeping

ad button 200

Happy Friday! I'm sure you’re excited the weekend is almost here! I remember the days when the week dragged on so long and the weekends seemed too short. On Sunday nights I would feel a little bit of anxiety setting in knowing what was to come o Monday morning. It's not that I ever disliked being a teacher, but the rigid schedule and "have to do this and that" didn't fit well with my personality. Now I love that I have the flexibility to work at a … [Read more...]
