I’m seeing more and more warm weather blog posts, but here in Massachusetts it’s definitely still winter! My Japanese Maple tree is STILL hanging on to a handful of leaves, but there are fewer and fewer every week.
February was a busy month in our house! Emma turned seven, and enjoyed a fun crafty birthday party with five school friends. Her birthday was during our much-too-short school vacation week, and we all enjoyed celebrating on a no-school day!
We made 60 (well, 59, but do you blame me for rounding up?) valentines for the kids’ teachers and classmates. five-year-old Johnny’s were my favorite – all very detailed and very unique!
I spent a lot of time ignoring housework and hanging out with Anna instead. I’m good at that! It was a big month for her – she turned six months old, got much better at sitting up, and now has two teeth!
My parents drove up from Florida, and we have enjoyed spending some time with them!
I did get the house a little more organized – mostly by getting rid of stuff. I’ve adopted my sister’s strategy: if it’s something you would bring if you were going to live somewhere for six months, keep it. If not, ask yourself if you really need it!
Goals for March:
- Simplify! This is important for me, because there is a lot going on behind the scenes in my life at the moment – some that you’ll probably hear about soon (I hope) and some that just isn’t my story to tell. And simplifying is always a good thing! For me right now, simplifying specifically means cutting down on commitments and continuing my unending decluttering and organization quest. Focus area: gratitude, simplicity, and responsibility
- Make our traditional crayon shaving eggs for Easter, and any other crafts we make time for. Focus area: education
