Last night I got out of the house, by myself, for some "Me-Time."
I have always envied women and mothers who see Me-Time as smart, not selfish. They grasp the concept of "putting your own oxygen mask on first"—taking time to renew and regenerate—before doing-for and helping others.
So, it was a big step for me to kiss the boys goodbye and head out the door to practice some self-care—to take some Me-Time.
Amy of Simply Sugar & Gluten Free is having a baby—and any day now!
To celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby Boy Green, a group of us have come together to surprise Amy and Joe (that'd be Amy's husband) with a virtual baby shower.
As many of you know, Amy is always cooking up something scrumptious on her blog and hopefully today she can take a break, kick up her heels, and relish in some well-deserved love and special attention.

So one day I actually had some spare time to spend organizing my pantry. I went a step beyond purging and re-stocking and made some labels to slap onto my jarred bulk goods. I thought they were pretty nifty and cute enough to share. In this downloadable zipped file is everything you need to create your own:

Last Friday my neighbor and one of my dearest friends, Hannah, hosted a Vision Board Party. It was one of the best evenings out I've had in a long, long time. Close to midnight we said our farewells. I stepped out into the dark, a cold wind against my face and I felt energized! More than that, I felt inspired and renewed. Who would have thought a stack of magazines, a couple of glue sticks, a bottle of red, and the company of some amazing women would have left me feeling that way?
