Advent Calendar is here: On Made By Lora.
One of my favorite childhood memories was of an advent calendar that my mom would hang on my door come Christmas time. Every morning I would wake up and move the mouse to a new spot. One day closer to Christmas AND one day closer to my birthday! I was very excited to ask my mom for said Advent Calendar to give to my son, but BEHOLD, she threw it out when she moved in 2009!!!! After many sleepless nights (only kidding) I decided to pull out the felt and start making my own. Now I have an Advent Calendar for my son (although I am thinking I probably should make another since I have another little one on the way)that he can move the mouse each day to get one day closer.....
Order yours today. Orders for this will close before Thanksgiving.

There is a wonderful website that I read that deserves a shout out here. Rhythm of the Home is a great resource for parents that are looking to bring more balance into their family and home life. It is filled with seasonal crafts to do with your children, recipes for the seasons, ideas and tips on how mother's can take better care of themselves, and much more. The website has seasonal updates and the blog more frequent updates. Here is the link for the blog: Rhythm of the Home blog.
When I opened up the website this morning (before my dreaded root canal that is taking place in 40 minutes) I was reminded of the calmness of the season that is approaching. A feeling of crisp days and warm drinks, a time for nesting, a time for cherishing (even more so) every minute I have with my toddler, and just being content with this wonderful life that I have been given.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I.
