I went to a wake yesterday. It was awful...forty something, married, kids, sudden and unexpected. Too soon, too young. So very, very sad.
On the receiving line, I watched. She was strong, eloquent, beautiful, the epitome of class, all the while suffering through an unimaginable pain. People said they were sorry. They said they'd be there to help out and console. They said they understood, as they clasped the hand of their partner and moved on down the line.
And I thought, no they don't. They couldn't possibly.
But I do.

Before blogging, I never decorated for Valentine's Day. I taught kindergarten and first grade for years before the kids were born. Then when they started preschool, so did I. I taught a four year old class until my youngest went to kindergarten.

Ah, the end of the year. Time to take stock of 2015 and share the best of the best. At least that was the plan, but you know, I've done that before ~ twice actually ~ and while the most popular posts are always fun to highlight, this year, I thought I would share my own personal favorites with you.
One from each month of the year.

Hello Friends! Today, I have another home decor idea using gift bags. I know that most of you are probably done with your holiday decorating by now, but I thought that I would put this one out there now in case you are looking for some last minute inspiration. Plus, gift bags are going to be on clearance in the next few days, you may get a few during the holidays that are too pretty to toss and frankly, while I have created my signs for Christmas, these ideas could be used anytime of the year.
So let's take a peek at just one more easy gift bag decor idea. Shall we?
