Christmas is quite easily the most tradition-filled time of the year for me and my family. Growing up with a mother who was highly sentimental (who then had babies who were also sentimental), traditions were easily created. Just enjoying a thing enough one time was enough for all of us to dub it a "tradition" and insist that it happen every year after. One thing my family used to enjoy doing when we were all together was a $5 gift night.
I received this book via Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own, as always.
Growing up, my mom was always finding ways for us kids to be creative. We learned about Egyptian hieroglyphs while carving some of them in to tables she'd made for us out of plaster of Paris, and we built many box forts on summer afternoons. These creative activities naturally branched in to our home, as well. I feel like I've always grown up surrounded by a well-crafted home, and am continually seeking more ways to make my home well-crafted. Seeing the title of this book made me immediately want to snatch it up.
Happy Birthday, Michael!
"My hope is to eventually truly realize that sometimes we have to 'fail' at some things in order to actually move closer to our goals. And maybe to take 'fail' out of my vocabulary all together. Because as much as I felt like I dropped some balls this week, I really just rolled them to a point in the future where I could pay attention to them. "
Winter in Charleston has been incredibly mild and boy have I loved it! (Michael keeps reminding me that it probably means we're in for an intensely hot summer, but I'm enjoying not freezing to death in the present. #thelittlethings haha. You all will have to remind me of this if I complain about the summer heat!) Because winter has been so mild, signs of spring have been present since the beginning of February.
Hello, I'm Stacia!
I believe that adventure exists even in your back yard, that beauty can emerge from every day moments, that creativity can take many forms, that makeup washes off at the end of the day (so why not have a little fun!) Let's be friends!
