This Bliss :: Making Valentines

This week, I’m thankful for the time I’ve been spending at home with my little guy. We moved three times in six months this year: from Michigan to California into corporate accommodations (hotel), to an apartment, and then into our house we bought here in the Bay Area in December. (Yay!!)  We love our little home under the palm trees. Asher has been staying home with me for the past few months while we’ve been touring different preschools in our new neighborhood. We finally found the one for us, and he starts in a week and a half. He’ll be attending three days a week to grow, learn, and make new friends. And I’ll get to work normal business hours again (these midnight editing sessions have been killer!), while enjoying our together days even more 🙂

What I love about our days together is that we can learn and play at our own pace, and he learns about what interests him. Today, in mama-toddler art class, we made Valentines for Jamie 🙂  They’re hanging on the fridge drying right now, and he smiles all proud every time he walks by them.  He’s excited for Daddy to get home!


Always so curious about how things work 🙂



(We got the idea for using tp rolls as heart stamps from Pinterest, and this post. Fun!)

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  Make it wonderful and enjoy the ones you love!
