With Thanks

We used this rainy day to decorate some Statues of Liberty from MomsRising! Our mini-activists loved this project, and we hope that Senator Warren, Senator Markey and Representative Tsongas love them too! xo

A Beachy Fairy Garden

A Happy Hedgehog Post beach themed fairy garden box helped to make Grace's birthday even more lovely than it already was! It arrived in the mail the other day, and the girls wasted no time putting their gardens together! The addition of the fairies they recieved at Easter time was absolutely brilliant (good thinking, Emma!) and made this sweet little table top garden even more lovely! Thank you, Donna, Peter and Henry for the love gift for Grace (and Emma) for her birthday! It was an instant hit! xo

{This Moment} Happy Birthday, Dear Grace!

{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! We wish you a lovely weekend! xo

The Fairy Village

A gift box full of fairy house items, plus two birthday gift cards to Michaels , plus 70% off fairy house items at Michaels equal many new additions to their rhododendron bush fairy village! Thank you to everyone who has given Grace and Emma gift cards to Michaels or fairy house items from Michaels over the last six months. The girls have had the most wonderful time choosing new pieces to add and figuring out where to put everything! They are sad to see that section leave Michaels, and are very hopeful that it returns next early spring. xo

In Celebration Of Grace

Just like the celebration for Dave the day before, Grace's day was absolutely perfect for her! From Emma sending her sister on a scavenger hunt to find her gift (in the refrigerator of all places!) to the gathering with her friends at Serendipity and finally the incredibly delicious ice cream cake followed by the lighting of the birthday ring, I'm not sure that this day could have been any more perfect for Miss Grace! She must have thanked us a million times for such a special day yesterday, and the first things he said to us this morning was how much she loved everything about  yesterday. Thank you again to everyone who helped us celebrate. This truly is one of those birthdays she will look back on for years to come! xo
