I LOVE cooking from recipes, and making up meals, I LOVE spending time with my boys (all three) and entertaining my family and friends, I LOVE bargain shopping (vintage stores included), I LOVE flipping through fashion and design mags, I LOVE the smell of libraries and how often I could get lost there, I LOVE scanning realty websites, I LOVE Trader Joes and LUSH, I LOVE fresh flowers and all four seasons, I LOVE Cincinnati and am always ready to travel, I LOVE stationary and stamps, I LOVE diamonds and pearls, tulle and lace, I LOVE smelling coffee and drinking tea, I love marshmallows and chocolate, I LOVE cozy sheets and morning sunshine, I LOVE me and I love GOD!
When the temperature drops and it's too chilly to venture outdoors I like to find fun things for my boys to do around the house. Although we are in the age of Wii, DS, Playstation and computer games...sometimes I encourage them to unplug and get back to the basics.
We get out the easel, play UNO or pick up sticks. I am looking forward to reading The Little Prince this season as I lucked out on a discounted copy at Anthropologie.
What are your go to cold weather kid's activities?
Their illustrations and paper stationary are so unique and creative. I love sending and receiving handwritten correspondence and Rifle Paper Co. supports my passion.
I recently came across this 2013 calendar and it is now on my holiday wish list. It holds illustrations of various cities around the world and once the year is over you can trim and frame the beautiful art.
