some thing to make you smile

everyday when I water the tree, Emily loves to come over to give me a kiss.
hugs to you

an extra hug and kiss

On a day like today I am reminded how fragile life can be.
So every chance I get, I am going to give them an extra hug or kiss or smile.
Because I am theirs and they are mine.
Because we are together. We are healthy.
We are lucky to be living this adventure called life.

{our moment}

rain or shine...she's ready
when Emily sees the other kids from the neighborhood playing outside 
she runs to get on two things: her rainboots and her parasol. clothes optional.

aromatherapy play

We made scented playdough today using this recipe from over two years ago. Has it really been that long since we made this great stuff? Not only was it so fun to have Grace make colors from the primaries, we also added essential oils to make playing with it a true sensory journey. Each color was a different scent. Red is geranium, orange is clove, yellow is ylang ylang, green is peppermint, blue is "love" as it is her favorite color after all, and purple is lavender.

Fun for any age!
