    February can be a cold bleak month… especially in the Northeast. Thankfully it’s short… and thankfully we were in Bermuda for a week of it. So February, you really weren’t so bad! Below find my favorites from this month! (Click on the link for the coordinating number to shop item!) Iota The Great Big Game in The Teeny-Weeny Tin – This is such a fun little game!

  • I need to walk and it’s getting cold…

    This grieving thing is a tricky business. I recently read a particularly poignant article on A Cup Of Jo by the incredible Nora McInerny about grief and lipstick. Really, go read it. It totally explains why I feel the need to blow my hair dry and put on jeans instead of my uniform workout gear.

  • Grain Free Apple Cider Donuts

    As we continued on our grain free adventure, the kids NEEDED a breakfast treat. Enter the amazing Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour. Everything I have made with it has been A+. We have been making awesome pancakes; actually this batter doubles as a pancake batter and has become a staple around here on the weekends, but donuts were really the request.

The kids LOVED helping with these, especially the sprinkling of the cinnamon sugar…
