A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of sharing a quick and fun DIY project with Mom Connection, a group of young moms at my church. When I was asked to come up with a creative activity lots of ideas went through my head.

I wish you could see just how pretty this tag is. The Satin Gold Ribbon is so beautiful! Continue reading

But I have to say… my family made this the best birthday ever… regardless of the number. Have I mentioned just how much I love this man who is a true gift from God to me. Continue reading
