As for me....still taking it slow. I have put up my Valentine tree....... (well, I transformed my Winter/Snowman tree into a Valentine tree) and I spread a few hearts around the house! I don't do too much but the red color goes well in our home and I have a few favorite things! And you know what?...My kids really like it when I decorate for different holidays. I think it is something they will always remember and I hope they will do it in their homes for their own families someday!
I also included a few pictures of my front door, kitchen window and kitchen counter. The prim heart on my front door says "Love Lives Here". It is one of those things I look forward to putting out each year. And there is usually always a wreath hanging in my kitchen window. I just change it out from time to time. I think my wreath with the little bird in it would look much better with wood blinds or shutters...but for now those just remain on my wishlist. Along with a woodfloor, black appliances, the list goes on and on. :)
We are back into life after the holidays in full swing. I must admit I am looking forward to the weekend. I don't think I am quite ready for all this running around yet. I am really tired in the evenings. I can't wait until I am 100% again and can get back into my yoga and pilates. My nephew got engaged over Christmas and him and his fiance have asked me to be a bridesmaid in their wedding in HAWAII next January so I had better get busy! I have seen the dresses and they are so simple and classy, I would like to do it justice! Hawaii has always been my dream destination so I am hoping that their plans to get married there will all come together!
Geoff and I set a family New Years resolution~To spend more time together. I think whether you have one, two or three kids or five like we do it is SO hard to find that time to spend ALL together. So we declared "What Are We Doing Wednesdays"...a.k.a. Family Night! The kids choose the meal and the activity...it might be a game or a movie, whatever they may dream up. The older kids alternate Wednesdays helping Mom and Dad cook the meal! Happy to report tonight was a great success! On the menu~Mad Dad Omelets (made to order) and Alvin and the Chipmunks started at 7:15! It was so fun and when the kids went to bed they all said thank you for the night! :) Everyone says time goes so fast when they are young...and you never believe it but it does! So we decided to embrace the fact that our kids are still so excited to have family time! It's amazing how good it feels just to stop and take the time for the people you love the most!
Well that is what is going on in my little corner of the world. I can't tell you how much fun it has been to blog and read blogs. You are all inspiring to me to try new things and to get things done! And please be patient with me...All my pictures ended up at the top! I wanted them to be here and there throughout my blog. I have not perfected the art of blog design yet. But I will get it! Take care until next time! ~Sarah~
