    I just love that little love terrarium and the banner. And how cute are the kids' drawings!

    I am in love with your mini chalkboard! Did you make this? Is there a tutorial I would love to have one.

      That's probably the one chalkboard in my house I didn't make! LOL! I've had that one for years 🙂

    I know you know, how lucky you have been, to experience the level of peace and support and LOVE all these years! While my childhood so idyllic, I'm grateful to have known a better side of my parents in their later years. While I didn't get marriage right the first time, I know it now and am so grateful!

    Well written post! Thanks for sharing!

    Love it! I feel as though I have been on both sides of the spectrum. Growing up we weren't "Rich" persay, but we definitely did not go without. Now, a newly wed, we are trying to work with our budget and it gets stressful. But never, have I been without a heart full of love for everyone around me. Thank you for the beautiful post! Happy Valentines Day!!

    Isn't it awesome when you see what you are doing and teaching is being observed and exercised?!?!

    I adore the comment you made about being surrounded by love and the fact that it was all over your house growing up because your parents "put it there". My husband and I don't have children yet, but this is exactly the kind of home I hope to provide for our future babies. You have truly inspired me!
