Oh, hello friend. Thanks for stopping by. Today I am joining in with more than 60 other blogger to share some easy candy Valentine printables. They take Valentine's Day surprises up a notch without the intense time investment that many handmade treats take. My mom was the ultimate. She was Room Mother, PTA President, you name it, she supported. She was also great about helping us make extra special homemade holiday treats. Homemade treats aren't an option in school anymore, but I still like the feel of a treat that takes a bit more effort than the grocery store boxes of character … [Read more...]

It made the goal more tangible, and even more importantly, it was DOable. Gone were the feelings of guilt and remorse over New Year's resolutions not met. This year, I thought it … [Read more...]
