If your mom is even half as amazing as mine you’ve struck gold. The lady who birthed me is my #1 fan, my best friend, and my anchor in this sometimes crazy world. My grandmother has also been a huge influence on me, as well as my aunt. So don’t just celebrate your mother on Mother’s Day, let all of the incredible women in your life know just how appreciated they truly are.

What happens when it’s decided that Easter dinner will be at your place a week before the big day? You start brainstorming, of course. Thankfully most of the food will be covered by others, which leaves me to focus on the unexpected. The tablescape, the flowers, and the treats.

I’ve spent the last year watching my friend Colore’s calligraphy talent go from beginner to her own beautiful style. While she’s usually busy creating over on her site – Colore’ Grace – today she’s sharing a Valentine’s Day card printable with us. The sentiment of ‘much love to you’ is just about the perfect thought for everyone on February 14th. It’s not terribly sentimental or cliche so print them out for your friends, your family – anyone who has a special place in your heart that you wish to know you’re thinking of them come Valentine’s Day.
When it comes to your February love game there are plenty of ways to go, but the most important is probably food. You know the old adage, the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach? Well I’m a firm believe in it. And as you might know, the best times to satiate one’s appetite is first thing in the morning or last thing at night. But no worries because I’ve got you covered with a dozen recipes for breakfast in bed and another dozen for after dinner dessert. Go forth into thine kitchen!

How is it possible that Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away??? It’s the one holiday that sneaks up on me every single year. While I’m currently playing the singles game I still love to pull together something sweet for friends and loved ones – because who says that Valentine’s Day has to be purely about hearts-coming-out-of-your-eyes love? Here are fourteen valentines for you to share with both your lovah and your loved ones.
Sayonara 2014, aloha 2015! Last year was full of much success on both personal and business levels, but it was also filled with turmoil and challenge. Some good, some bad. I’m looking forward to grabbing the new year with everything I have and squeezing every last drop of potential out of its 365 days. Here’s to a good one!
While I sort of think New Year’s is an overrated holiday, there’s something exciting about getting together with people simply to celebrate. I much prefer smaller get togethers during the holidays to anything huge, so my idea of the perfect imaginary New Year’s Eve party would be rather simple. A dozen friends, good music, and lots of candlelight to set the mood. Throw in a good selection of cocktails and a buffet full of appetizers and a few sweets and we’re set. Party starts at 7pm!
