    DIY Cinnamon Ornaments

       Now that my oldest daughter is three, the Holidays have become so magical all over again. It’s like I’m a kid again, seeing everything for the first time, through her eyes. It’s been fun combining me and my husband’s traditions as well and making them our own. Something we have been sure to do the passed few years is make Cinnamon Ornaments. I love making these for a couple reasons. First off, they smell absolutely incredible- like only what I can imagine Christmas dreams are made of. Secondly, there is something so sweet and old fashion about them. I love the idea of making a batch or two of…

    DIY Valentine’s Day Heart Hats

    Happy almost Valentine’s Day, my loves! Today I am re-sharing one of my very first blog posts from two years ago. Each year, as Harlow gets older and is able to grasp the concept of each holiday more, the more fun it has become for the whole family. Being her first year in preschool, tomorrow is will be her very first Valentine’s Day party and y’all, she is so stinkin’ excited, it is SO sweet! Over the weekend we made these adorable VDay heart hats and she has barely taken hers off! Anything she can wear, gets extra points her in book.

    Even though the temps have still been freezing around here, we are ready to fully embrace Spring (alledgedly) headed our way! Just like I said about Christmas a few months ago, Harlow being two has made the holidays so much more fun as a parent.

    Our Day at Dutch Wonderland

    Visiting Lancaster is always nostalgic for me. We lived there when I was little while my dad was getting his from degree from Millersville University. It’s always nice to go back for a visit. So when my sister-in-law suggested we take our daughters (9 and almost 2 years old) and our niece (4) for a day of summer fun, I was pumped! I hadn’t been to Dutch Wonderland since I was little and I was excited to take my own daughter back! My initial impression of the park is that it is adorable. The girls were thrilled to be able to spot the castle as we got closer. The park is kept…
