{This Moment} Snow (finally!)!

{This Moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo -no words- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you are inspired to so the same, leave a link to your moment in the comments section for all to find and see. We wish you a lovely first weekend of February and all the magic and love that comes with this sweet month! xo

Valentines






 Preparing valentines for one of their most favorite February traditions: the valentine exchange at their Girl Scout meeting! For as fitting as last year's valentine exchange valentines were, these are pretty fabulous, too! It's almost  as if each of these kits were made with these two sweet girls in mind! xo

On Saint Brigid's Day

Saint Brigid's Blessing

May Brigid bless the house wherein you dwell,
Bless every fireside, every wall, every door,
Bless every heart that beats beneath its roof,
Bless every hand that toils to bring it joy, 
Bless every foot that walks its portals through,
May Brigid bless this house that shelters you.

In addition to the sweet Brigid bendy doll project (from our first monthly envelope from Happy Hedgehog Post) we were inspired by the story of Brigid and her beloved cows to donate milk, butter and bread to our food pantry, as she would always share her family's supply of milk, butter and bread with those in need. xo

In Emma's Main Lesson Book

 This project, although simple, was easily one of my most favorite to watch come together. It was the perfect way to end the time telling math block that she has spent the month of January working on. While many fun projects were done, this one captured my heart the most. I was especially enchanted by today's entry (the autumn verse- which is one of her most favorites). Not only is her handwriting absolutely gorgeous, but I was totally in awe of how beautifully straight she wrote each line. I know that I was not able to write that straight on unlined paper when I was her age! She turns eight in less than a month, and I'm positive that I watched her grow a little more right before my very eyes today! xo
