2021 has come at last and while it’s still January we know that Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it. When Liz was little we made lots of last-minute runs to town to pick up a package of Valentine’s Day cards. But over the years we have learned to make our own as well as help my nieces and nephews spread the good cheer. While I’m enjoying the holiday as Empty Nesters you do miss those traditions like doing Valentine’s Day cards.

An Award for Being the Best
Sometimes, even the smallest gestures or the simplest things about a person are what we find admirable. Do you think your man cooks the best barbeque you’ve ever tasted? Is your best friend your favorite artist? Did your sister get a promotion at work recently? Gifting a personalized trophy or award is an adorable way to make the gift receiver feel special about something that may just be ordinary to them. They can display it on their desk or shelf, and they’ll always remember how much you appreciate them whenever they see their own award.
Reusable Bags from Bumkins
Reducing the number of things that end up in a landfill should be on everyone’s to-do-list. However, I know I have spent a lot of years and money doing just the opposite. But in the last three years I have learned that reusable items are the way to go and I’ve invested in a lot of things to make our home greener. I know that I have come a long way, but I also have a long way to go. But this month I have added a new product to my “green living” theme.
What is it you ask? Easy, it is Reusable Disney Baby snack Bag 3 pack. Mickey Mouse is arguably one of my all-time favorite Disney characters. Since my office has an ongoing Disney theme it just made perfect sense to carry on with more Disney themed items even though these are for snacks you can use them for other things as well. I am using mine for some electronic items for organization in the office, and one bag lives in my purse with a few essentials in it.
I love that they can be turned inside out to hand or machine wash which keeps them looking great. Or if you have a dishwasher, they are top rack safe, which is huge for all busy parents. You can even air dry them, or machine dry on low. Bumkins has you covered on lots of great products including several items that I can’t wait to order for our home.
Colton’s Time Machine Books
2020 has been a year that many of us will not soon forget and 2021 is underway. As many of you know I spent 10 years of my life teaching in a public-school classroom, so education still holds an incredibly special place in my heart. While I am not ready to jump back into the classroom, finding resources to help busy parents out is always a win win situation for me. Which brings me to author Rebecca Massey’s books like Colton’s Pocket Dragon Book 12: Haunted House and Colton’s Time Machine Book 4: Betsy, Ross, Mount Rushmore, and the Stature of Liberty.
Rebecca takes you and/or your kids back in time to learn a little history which happens to be one of my favorite subjects. In this book Colton and his dragons travel to Philadelphia, in the year 1776, to work on the American flag with Betsy Ross. Then onward to Mount Rushmore, in the year of 1938, and finally they travel to the Statue of Liberty.
This is a great way for kids to learn while enjoying a little bit of downtime from school or a great resource for all of you homeschooling parents out there. Any of the books will keep you on your toes and take you to a special place and time without having to leave the comfort of your own home.

If your loved one is competing in races or tours, they will absolutely appreciate getting a power meter as a gift. Just make sure to know the model of their bicycle to get a compatible power meter.
