Invite and Encourage

Tea station - designed to make you feel like you're in a cafe, but also that you can help yourself if you like. I'm still looking for a cute tea timer that works (why does it seem like all the cute ticky ones are broken, at the store?)

We got to host an out-of-town friend, her husband, and their two littles overnight - it was great fun for us, and I hope for them! It's great having a door between the living room and the bedrooms, since it creates a little more privacy for someone sleeping on the fold-out couch.

I've been enjoying this round of #fmfpartysnailmail - putting together lists, sending letters, stalking the mailbox for letters in return (if you missed out on this round of "encouragement in your mailbox," email and I'll put you on the list to notify of future rounds). I love that there are so many different postage stamps!

We made bubble prints one day last week (a squirt of dish soap, a splash of water, and a squirt of food coloring in a glass - blow with a straw until the bubbles come over the edge of the glass, then press a piece of cardstock onto it). Tobin dunked his so they came out very colorful, and Brooklyn would only do one color on each. I practiced lettering on a few of them, and I've been sticking them in my snail mail notes.

Refilling so I can continue to encourage others. I'm loving the 52 Lists Project - it gives me something to think about, and a framework in which to think it.
