My Valentine Phantom



Sophie's class at school has been assigning each child with a secret friend. They are to do kind things for this person for 1 week and then they reassign them a new friend. She has talked about all the many things she has been doing for her "friends". She gets their lunch for them, helps them put their chair up at the end of the day, gets their coat for them when it's time to leave etc. She decided it would be a good idea to do this at home. We all drew names and the second week Sophie drew my name, and this is what I found on my pillow that night. I love the edible almond heart and the coin in the corner. She loves surprising everyone with special notes and small acts of kindness. She is our constant reminder of sharing the Love. 

Lunch at the Woodlands



Today was a "no school" day for Sophie and Logan. All the 5th and 6th Class kids had their confirmation today and so school was closed. It is a big event for everyone. All the mom's get all decked out in their fanciest dress, most of them get their hair done and family gather at the church for the ceremony. I did some fancy hairdos for Sorcha and Zara, 2 girls in 6th class, but after that the 3 of us just had a lazy morning at home.

Later in the afternoon, we met up with friends at the Woodland Hotel in Adare and had a nice lunch. We were lucky and had our own table and so I had a moment with these two that I don't get very often. Fun way to spend the day.

Love is in the Air



With Valentines around the corner I put up as many Love thoughts, signs, pictures as I could. Putting  little extra love thoughts in everyone's brain.
