Planning!

Planning!
Here's our list of things that we planning and writing lists for this month:
  1. Holiday cards.  Scheduling a photo shoot, organizing the outfits, updating the address list from last year and managing expectations.  A little planning allows us to write holiday cards at a slower pace rather than a frenetic obligation.  Make a cup of tea.  Write two at a sitting or 10.
  2. Make ahead freezer and slow cooker meals.  As the pace of December picks up, we love having some easy meals stored in our freezer.  One of our favourite new hacks this year is prepping all ingredients for a slow cooker meal and freezing them in a extra large freezer bag.  Hello fresh curries and good bye casseroles. 
  3. Packing lists.  Taking my time, thinking it through and putting a packing list together in my google drive that I can access from the drugstore.  And checking if any specialty items like ski boots or flip flops fit while I still have time to shop around.

I Carry Your Heart With Me

The beautiful e.e. cummings poem, I Carry Your Heart with Me has just been re-released as a board book featuring the charming illustration work by Mati Rose McDonough.

This mother and child love story as understood through nature is going to be our next go-to new baby gift.
