Hello there! I'm Kathleen, a former art teacher and co-creator of two young boys. I'm perpetually in search of creative ways to spice up our daily lives, and always in search of a good cup of coffee and a knitting project. Join us in our adventures in making and doing, and making do.
On the eve of St. Valentine's Day, our house is sprinkled with hearts.
I tend not to get entangled in the Valentine's day hoopla (flowers, candy, etc.) but it is nice to reflect on those we love and whom we're grateful for in our lives.
Red and pink paper brings some cheer into our house, especially during this longest-shortest month that is February. The cold days seem endless, though punctuated with an intimacy that brings us all closer together. Sometimes it's too much to bear ("could you boys just STOP hanging on me!"), but we manage while longing for days spent in the dirt and grass.
I can't help but hear the melody and lyrics from The End, on Abbey Road. It's a nice mantra for getting through a rough day.
"And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."--The Beatles
