Happy April!Continue reading “What I’m Lovin’ in April”
Here we go – MARCHin’ on through 2021! Anyone else lost all track of time? I don’t even know what day it is anymore. But I do know that it’s time for a monthly list of what I’m lovin’ so read on!
I hope your new year is off to a fabulous start! I am kicking 2021 off a month late so clearly “no more procrastinating” is not one of my resolutions this year 😉
Since I missed the January deadline, I’m combining it with February so consider this a BONUS – two whole months of all the things I’ve been lovin’ lately!
It’s my favorite time of the year: the holidays! I know they may look very different this year, but I’m wishing you all a very joyous season filled with warm memories & sweet treats 😉
Who else is swinging wildly between celebrating and mourning this holiday season?
What a wild ride 2020 has been! We’re not going to be seeing family as much as we’d like/at all this season. Instead, we’ll be spending quite a bit of time at home.
My favorite activities with Andy include watching her ride fearlessly through our neighborhood on her bike…and COLORING! During the latter I spend most of the time yelling “Stop eating your crayons!” while feeling deep shame for ever judging any company for printing “non-toxic” on their packaging (On behalf of all toddler parents, WE THANK YOU for your invaluable foresight).
For those of you looking for indoor activities for little ones, this one’s for you! I’ve thrown together this coloring sheet (hope you like cats) as a FREE download for the holidays. Print it, color it, and mail it to your loved ones!
But don’t count on it getting there by Christmas…
But who cares! Happy mail is always fun to receive even if it’s after the holiday you intended it for.
Wishing you all a happy, joyful, weird holiday season!
It’s been a while… I know I’m not the only one struggling through this pandemic so I won’t bother making excuses 😉
This post has morphed into a compilation of things I’ve been lovin’ starting back in August… through September… and here we are in October – so I’m calling it my list of Fall lovin’!
Social distancing is creating quite a conundrum for traditional trick-or-treating. But have no fear: the internet is full of great work-arounds for fun and SAFE celebrating amidst COVID-19 fears.Continue reading “Free Halloween Printable for Contactless Trick-or-Treating”
This pandemic has caused me to lose all sense of time so my apologies for this being so late (hello August!), but I couldn’t resist sharing what I’ve been lovin’ lately with you anyway.
As you already know, podcasts are my favorite way to consume media. Often when I’m curious about a topic, I’ll search for it on iTunes to see if there’s a podcast about it.
Throughout this global pandemic we are in, I’ve been seeking out podcasts that tell the story of COVID-19’s impact on our society. Like all of you probably are, I’m curious (and anxious) as to what’s ahead for us. We are certainly living through a time that will not only serve as a turning point in our own lives but will undoubtedly impact our society as a whole and how we function moving forward.
That sounds heavy, but I’m actually quite optimistic about it. However, I’m trying not to bury my head in the clouds (like usual). I want to understand the impact of this pandemic on families and communities that may differ from mine. I think that’s an important perspective to seek out.
