Happy Mid-January friends! I know that some people might think setting up Valentine’s Day accoutrements in stores the day after Christmas seems a little premature, but I have to admit to being someone who finds immense pleasure in seeing those shiny red foil hearts and pink bursting blossoms on store shelves.

In Motherhood, Parentingby Jen11 Comments

I firmly believe in the power of feng shui and how items are placed and oriented in a room work towards controlling the energy in that room.
