This month was something.  Nothing to complain about.  A little snow and a little sun, what more do you want?  All I can say is it was slow.  We rang in the New Year ready to sprint out of the gates and in some respects we did, but in others it was still January.  So I guess what I am trying to say is that I am glad it is over.  I was slow.  All I can think about is how much I need some good ol holiday fluff to look forward too.  If you look really close you might see some little red hearts forming in my eyes as I anticipate all things candy and chocolate.

We have already made our first trip to the Walgreens for our conversation hearts and well they are already all gone!  February is going to be quick and I am ok with that.  There is a lot packed into this little month but I guess what I am finding is I kind of like things to move that way.  I like life full and busy.  I mostly like to have the opportunity to see people in real life and this coming month will be full of that!

Here is an update since the last time I wrote…..

The boys have turned our family into a “hockey family”.  They love it and can’t get enough of it.

Her dancing to the music playing on my computer just makes me smile.  Sister has some serious moves and she is serious about those moves.

We had the opportunity to visit our “Proud Participating Partner” Matilda Jane Clothing and their spring shoot.  We remain so proud of these companies who are committed to changing perceptions as well as the face of beauty.  Our favorite part was watching out new friend, this gorgeous girl below being pampered.  She rocked her shoot!
