A Belated Welcome to February!

Ah, February, the official month of love.  

Ah, February, home to reds, pinks, whites, roses, and dainty lace.  Paper hearts, conversation hearts, hearts bursting in love, and, sadly, broken hearts. 

Ah, February, host to Groundhog’s Day, the Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, Black History Month, and this year – Leap Year!

Ah, February, such a tradition-filled month. 

I never thought of February as being a favorite month, usually there is a ton of snow on the ground and cold, cold winds blowing (not this year, at least not yet).  But this year is different.  Homeschooling the kiddies has changed my perspective of this month – so much to learn, so much to create, so much to love.

So, raise your conversation heart up, cheers to a loved, and blessed February!

XOXO,
Trish

November, today.


November ushered in on strong winds.  There's a nip in the air and time to get out the scarves, hats and mittens. 

November is the perfect time to get cozy, binge watch new flicks on Netflix, play board games with the kiddies, learn something new.  Stack piles of blankets in a basket and keep within reach when watching a good movie with the kiddies.  Light a few candles (we are currently burning Mama's Kitchen by Antique Candle Co.).  Curl up with a good book.  Dream, plan, relax, be thankful.

This month:

I have a few crochet projects I am working on;

In our home-school studies, we will be talking community, neighbors and being thankful;

We will be diligently cleaning the house in preparation for the holiday parties we plan to host; and

We will be sipping our share of warm apple cider and hot chocolate (note to self: marshmallows).

Warmly, Trish

Happy Halloween from Our House to Yours!


Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
Voices whisper in the trees
TONIGHT IS HALLOWEEN!

a little bit of Richelle



Werewolves howl.
Phantoms prowl.
HALLOWEEN’S UPON US NOW.
