Precious Gifts

“Because of your smile, you make life more beautiful”

(Thich Nhat Hanh)

Ever meet one of those couples that you can tell are destined to have a family?  A couple that you know immediately will be amazing parents?  One with so much love to share,  you know whichever little spirit chooses them as their “Mommy” and “Daddy” will truly be blessed?

This is one of those couples.  Such a beautiful family both inside and out.

Feet – A Part of Project 52 Weeks

Lately, my little guy is totally in love with feet. Big feet, little feet, dog feet, smelly feet (ESPECIALLY SMELLY FEET – what is it with boys and their obsession with stink?!?), he loves ‘em all! Recently, I have also noticed him attempting to develop his “toe eye co ordination” (if there is such a thing) and trying to eat with his feet.

A little jiu jitsu monkey in the making? Maybe…

Yes, that is him on the counter, and yes, he can easily climb up there on his own. There is definitely no turning your back in our house! Oh, and in case you’re wondering what that sign is on our cupboard door, that would be an image of a rather disgusting looking man lounging in a less than attractive position on the couch eating junk food. Apparently that’s my husband’s idea of motivation to lead a healthy lifestyle…

My little man’s and his best friend’s feet

I do have to admit though, those little toes are pretty cute…

The Sweetest Place on Earth…

I LOVE supporting local businesses.  One of my favorites in town (and it’s not hard to understand why!) is The Chocolate Shop, located at 114 Broadway (across from TD Bank) in downtown Orangeville.  It has such a great atmosphere and the owner, Barb, always greets you with a warm smile.  The Chocolate Shop offers a wide variety of delicious treats, specifically handmade chocolates and truffles using only the finest ingredients.  With gift selections that appeal to all budgets, you can always find that perfect treat for someone special in your life.  Be sure to visit in the summer when The Chocolate Shop serves up Karwartha Dairy Ice Cream!

The Chocolate Shop also has a wonderful selection of vintage treats.  Need that perfect sweet for your little one’s birthday party loot bags?  Ask about the Candy Pops, a shish kabob of chewy treats.  And at an affordable price!

Now these are mice you don’t mind having in the house!

Or try one of my favorites, chocolate covered Oreo Cookies!  Mmmmmmmmm……

Also, choose from a wide selection of Valentine’s Day Gifts for your sweetheart!

Family of Four…

“There is beauty all around when there is love at home…”
