School Valentine's Day parties used to be a celebration filled with sugar hearts, chocolates and heart shaped suckers but many schools are opting out of sugary treats.
While I'm happy to hear that my kiddos won't be loaded up with cookies and cupcakes before heading home on Valentine's Day, we have had to do a few internet searches to find fun Valentine's. Stickers, pencils and temporary tattoos are popular selections. We found a few more cute ideas and included them on our Kids Holiday Party Pinterest board. The kids and I are really looking forward to making the Valentine's cards together.


4 Fun, Easy Ways to Reduce Stress

EXCERCISE: release stress through activity and clear your mind. Just stepping outside for a quick walk can be helpful.
SLEEP: the proper amount of sleep rejuvenates your mind and body.
MUSIC: an instant mood changer! Rock out to your favorite upbeat song to transform your current state of mind. Better yet….Dance it out :)
SUNSHINE: boost your Vitamin D and soak in the many benefits for a strong, healthy body.


The Meditation Lounge Group Meditation: Friday Flip

Dear Bert,
The holiday season can be filled with a number of triggers for stress….crowds, travel, last minute dashes to the store and crazy work schedules just to name a few. This year we were blessed with a midmonth invitation to The Meditation Lounge for a guided group meditation session with Selena Johnson.

The beautiful open space immediately surrounds you in light and warmth.  
We took our seats, got very comfortable with plush pillows, mats and blankets. Selena lead our group in breathing exercises and then through a journey of imagery that helped each of us focus on our individual connections to our inner strength. It was very relaxing and empowering all at the same time.
Afterwards we all enjoyed a buffet of snacks and discussed our experiences during the meditation. On the ride home, our carload decided we would be happy to visit Selena again! An overall positive experience, wonderful for our Friday Flip.
Happy New Year!
