Hot Chocolate in July?

We’ve got some resourceful kids in the neighborhood. 60 degrees at best today, and a lemonade stand is quickly transformed into a hot chocolate stand. The drink was excellent, complete with marshmallows, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Brilliant.

The Best Kind of Handmade

I went to Ikea yesterday because I had been told by a friend that their frames are the best for kids’ art. She wasn’t kidding. I’ve been meaning to frame these masterpieces by my son for awhile, and I think they look so good, I'm planning my kitchen redesign around them.

Summer Vacation

Okay, I'm going to admit it. I've been seriously neglecting my Etsy shop and my blog for the last month or so. Why? It's summer in Minnesota. And it's a glorious one. 70's-80's, sunny, low humidity. I can't get enough. And my kids can't either...parks, pools, soccer, golf, cabin trips and just hanging out in the neighborhood. Fortunately for all of us, our best friends are teacher families, so it's just one big party over here! (My husband might be a little jealous, though.)

I am so thankful I work from home so we can enjoy this precious time together. I sneak in work where I can, but overall, the kids run the day, and I've learned to just go with it. My youngest is starting school in the fall. There will be time to build my business then. Right now, I'm going to keep enjoying summer vacation!
