I don't know if my lesson will ever fully be learned but it will always be practiced. Eight months ago, I gave birth to my son. He defied all expectations and denied me of the Hallmark-type experiences that I had dreamed of.
Around this time last week I was saying, no way I can't believe April vacation is next week. Well, it's here and if you're looking for activities for your kids, enjoy this mega-roundup of events and programs in and out of the city. And wherever you land tomorrow, be sure to issue good wishes to all those running in and working the Boston Marathon. I'm so proud of this beautiful city!
What a gorgeous, gorgeous day! It was wonderful to feel the amazing Boston Marathon energy downtown, enjoy some self-care (definitely call my friend Honey Jo if you're looking for a stellar hair stylist!), and watch Laurel and Vi hunt down eggs with a gaggle of kids. Enjoy the rest of the weekend, and also these great reads and visuals via Hey Internet, Keep Being Awesome:
So, as crafty as I am, one area that has intimidated me is DIY decor and furniture. But my friend Paige (who has issued her interior design brilliance on our home...let me know if you want her contact info, she is AMAZING) gave me the push I needed. After prowling around Pinterest, I decided to try this chair reupholstery tutorial by Live Love DIY and I am simply over the moon about the results!
Happy Friday everyone and for some of you, welcome to the first of 10 days off from school. I'll be sharing an April vacation mega-roundup this weekend, but meanwhile, enjoy the below roundup of 17 things to do this weekend. Also, if you're decorating eggs, be sure to check out these 10 easy Easter egg ideas (right now I'm trying to decide between #5, #7, #8, and #10!). And here are two guides for mixing vibrant dye colors. Enjoy!
