Shipping box or airplane?


There have been quite a lot of moving boxes in our life in the last few weeks! I think the last batch is waiting in the garage for recycling pick up. Because I love a good repurposing project, I thought I would share the darling creations one of my friends and co-owner of Hello! Lucky came up with for her twins 1st birthday!








It inspired me to make a the nugget's Halloween costume this year using one of our moving boxes, so stay tuned for this weekend to see what I come up with!

Parenting mantra for today, and maybe everyday...


    {found via pinterest via here}


I needed to read this yesterday and I then I did something about it today. And perhaps I need to put this somewhere visible to so that I keep it in mind tomorrow, and the day after and the day after.

Today he said words I had never heard him say. Today he explained complex emotions I didn't know he could. Today he listened and heard and cried and laughed and snuggled and probably internalized something I did that I will never know.

In the midst of all that is distracting me and all that will distract me in the future, may I keep this close by.
