I haven’t been blogging very much lately, and I’m not sure why. I still love to write. When I do fun stuff (aerial yoga, anyone?) I think “I’ll totally blog about this!” And then, for some reason, I don’t. I’m not about to stress over this and try to analyse it. My blog is, as I’ve said before, my happy place.
So, although this seems a little late, I’ve put together my happy moments for November. In 2014, I am going to try to recap the great moments of every month, because looking back at what made me happy over the course of the month makes me happy all over again, and happy twice is better than happy once!
Christmas crafting with my best friend!
Finding homes for my teacups and teapots. I love the mix of tea and books!
Displaying my love of tea for all to see! I stained these wooden letters with tea (of course!) and put them in my kitchen window.
My birthday is in November, therefore it is the best month of the year.
My birthday dress!
Messages from my students on the board in the classroom. I was not allowed to erase them (not that I wanted too!) so I taught using pieces of paper all day. It was worth it!
This was the snack table for my party. Yay, cupcakes! More food was added to this later.
I had a vision board party. We looked at many, many magazines, pulling out any and everything that caught our attention.
We made a mess, but it was fun!
The finished products were fantastic! They are all very different and represent what we want to happen in our lives.
Sadly, many magazines were harmed in the making of these vision boards. However, it was for a good cause and they were just going to be recycled anyways!
The day after my birthday, there was a huge snowstorm. It was the first snow of the year and it was fabulous! We got about 30cm (I think) and it was perfect snowman snow, the kind that sticks. Since we knew the kids at school would be too excited to sit down and work, we decided to have a special, one hour recess first thing in the morning. Everyone was happy, kids and teachers alike!
I’ve actually enjoyed going through all these moments that happened over a month ago. Maybe I am meant to do these monthly recaps long after they’ve happened!
