Freshening up the Living Room

Having been in our home for just over 2 years now, I’ve started to freshen up the rooms starting with the children’s bedrooms. Next on my list is the living room. Our living room is quite long and so while the children are still quite young we’ve almost split the room into two; a living room and a playroom. This means that we’ve decided to hold off on completely redecorating until we move all the toys out in a few {Read More}

Do you and your partner do anything special for Valentine’s Day or do you see it as a complete waste of time and money? I must admit that my husband and I never used to do much on Valentine’s Day, we’d buy each other a card but that was about it.
