Links to Love: Sweetheart Edition

• 12 February 2013


It's Valentine's Day this week, as you know, so I want to share with you a few tidbits that are somewhat related to this amorous holiday.  So go ahead and mull them over while you consider how you're going to make those heart-shaped pancakes without a mold :)

Have you heard about the Garage Gallery?  It's a now-online art gallery offering original art that started in...you guessed it...a garage.  The site offers original art at somewhat affordable prices (much of it is still out of my league, but gorgeous nonetheless) and includes paintings, photography, drawings and mixed media.  Note: the piece above is being offered there...I love it!

The husband and I are in discussion about taking on this 21-day challenge to never use our iPhones in the presence of others, after being inspired by this article.  What better way to show your love than by being attentive, interested and polite? :)

Send a love note...anonymously.

Best gifts for Valentine's Day?  Massages, treats, food, experiences--all at a discount.  I know there are copycat sites out there, but Groupon is still my favorite place to score great deals and great gifts.

I've been thinking a lot about teaching my children responsibility for the past several months, as I feel it essential to preparing them for the real world.  Right now, I feel like I am underperforming in this category, so I've been digging in and doing a little research.  This article by Suze Orman seems spot-on and I'm considering implementing a few of her points. I anticipate positive changes...if any of you have experience with this issue, please share your thoughts!

Hmmm.. Thinking of teaching kids responsibility.... Did you see the Entertainment article on MSNBC yesterday where Toni Braxton talked about charging her kids rent? It was very interesting! (Basically, they pay a percent of their allowance...). Might be an interesting Summer Lesson / Activity to help kids understand the costs of things and their part in it.

All such great links! I especially love the phone article - I am trying to be more present by not being on my phone at home...my husband on the other hand. :) I would love if we could have a cell phone free house at least when we are all hanging out together!
