what i love

Moi? I love words. and feelings. and connection. I love products not for the sake of stuff, but ones that make our {parenting} lives easier. better. filled with fun. or magic. or grace. Here are just a few of them. Click on the images for the pages to each. {yes, yes that last picture really is of a drink. the adult beverage kind. because here’s the thing: while I may be a parent coach I’m also a parent. And, well, you know what it’s like.}








 What I especially love right now….

Okay peeps. Some of you may know that the holiday cards at our house are designed by the end of October, and mailed the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Always. There are very few always rules in my house, but this is one of them. Because one year, six years ago, I didn’t. It was the first year of performing in The Nutcracker and I had no idea quite how much our lives would be engulfed by all things ballet. By the time the run ended, the countdown to Christmas was in single digits. And so was my sanity. Tree. Decorations. Presents. Card. Card that should have been mailed much earlier to reach families before the holiday {nevermind the crowd that lives overseas}. And so I learned. And now the card goes out on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. And I do that always.

But this week? I wavered. Because this week the kind folks at Minted reached out and said…won’t you please take a look? And I swooned. The new Holiday Card Collection? Charming, sweet & chic. And that’s just page one of 32. In all there are 635 card offerings. 635! One of my favorite parts? You get to see the designer, click on their page, and learn more. It’s an Etsy-feel with streamlined efficiency.  {the first is even from a local Seattle designer!} Seriously, how fabulous are these?!?! {I linked the card images right to the site, so you know, your card decision is done! voila!}









So. next year. Minted & me. But you? this year? There’s still plenty of time…
