Weathering our first hurricane in Florida was an emotional roller coaster to say the least. And I learned a lot. I learned about hurricane shutters, how to grab cases of water (fast). I learned that evacuating with tens of thousands of other people takes a lot of patience.. and lots of snacks.
And I learned that the compassion and caring of others is the bright spot in any storm.
Some good friends of ours became even better friends, by opening their homes and hearts to us. They gave us a place to lay our head, food in our bellies and smiles on our faces.
So now safely back home, I wanted to send them something to express how much their charity meant to us. (more…)

But there are some things you can do to reduce waste and help the planet, while still putting on a beautiful birthday party. (more…)
