 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 

-1 Corinthians 13:4-8

 
 

Candy Heart Tic-Tac-Toe

This fun Valentine’s Day treat is a great give away for friends and family.

Start by filling a pipping bag with a tablespoon of frosting then cut a small hole in the tip. Squeeze out a thin line of frosting to draw a tic-tac-toe board. Let the frosting dry. Separate candy hearts into two different colored piles, five hearts each (I think “Brach’s tiny conversation hearts” are the best.) Use hearts as tic-tac-toe game pieces. Have fun!

Buy a new journal to write down your favorite new memories as they happen and past memories so you don’t forget them. Don’t let the years go by too fast!

 

Bedroom Makeover

At the start of a new year we turn a new page; out with the old, in with the new. It’s time for a bedroom makeover. Splurge a little and fancy up, but don’t forget this means it’s also time to giveaway your clutter. set aside a day especially for this. Get ready by pouring yourself a glass of water (or tea!) and removing all distractions. Then plow through your trash without stopping until it’s all gone.
