Life is full of stranger things

Honestly…it really is. full of stranger things.

Not stranger thing like the show—stranger things that are unexpected, unusual but always interesting.

Honestly, my life has been full of them and I'm kinda waiting for the next one.
I need one.

I chalk strange coincidences up to God and his ultimate plan.
Which is sometimes easy to do years down the line: Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20.


Love is Back!

If you've been here before you know that I really like TV.
Lots of TV…and movies. I have had a couple of post ideas in my head that I desperately need to work on—Sorkin-love being my #1 idea.
But today, I am going to talk (again) about the Netflix original LOVE (previous post here). I saw the trailer for it last night, and I could not be more excited!


Last Minute Valentine

Sometimes holidays just creep up on you. Especially if you have kids and you are dealing with all their school valentine responsibilities, your home valentine celebration can get thrown to the side.
Here is a super easy valentine gift/project you can do with your kiddos today.
1. Decide whom you'd like to have them give this too-dad, grandparent, aunt, friend—All of the above!
2. Print (you don't even have to download).
3. Ask your kiddos the questions (or have them read them).
4. Record the responses (have them write them).
4. Laminate. Don't have a laminater, skip this step.
5. Have your kiddo give it as a gift.
6. Go grab a glass of wine cause you just won Valentines day!


Budget Crafting: Valentine edition

Valentines Day…hearts and flowers…pretty pink (and red) paper…a holiday for children…and sickeningly sweet lovers that wont last. But valentine crafts are for fun!
And since it is all of those things I will decorate. I will fill the house with a little more love then there was in January and a little more then there will be after February 14. Which really—when you think about it—is sad.


Tutorial: Make some ABC playing cards

Maybe I mentioned it, but I've been WAY into YouTube lately!

Videos…some are just fun or interesting, while others are actually educational and inspirational.
