As the weather starts to warm, the windows in my house instantly open, letting the air permeate into the corners and getting the holed-up smells of winter out from where they’re hiding in the corners. It’s time, too, for us to start shaking out rugs that have been long neglected during the cold winter months. I’ve collected all the kids’ snow boots, pants, mittens, and hats, and they are headed for a long summer’s nap as well. Read the rest of this entry

Valentine’s Day is on the horizon, and while I don’t do anything particularly celebratory with my husband, I do like to give my kids a little something to show them that I’m thinking about them as they head off to school.
I pack my kids’ school lunches every day, and so it is the perfect place to give them a little something special to open. Read the rest of this entry
