    Life has been a bit crazier than I like lately with work I've been doing for some clients, but I've also felt so blessed to work from home when two of my kids were sick recently. I'm planning some fun content for Practical Parenting Ideas in the coming months and can't wait to post them! One of them is printable Valentine's cards, which I've been meaning to get up on the blog. For now I'll link them below along with these featured Valentine's projects & treats. Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks for all who shared their recipes, and enjoy!

I absolutely love that Cents of Style is inspiring women to speak out and share their own stories about who they are or trying to become in 2017. One of my goals for this year is to redefine myself and focus more on self care and strengthening home & family.
