I think it’s magical when the bare tree branches become covered with ice during winter.  You can easily create that same dramatic look in your home using birch branches and acrylic icicles.  I filled the cylinder with a strand of clear lights and pinecones before inserting the branches, which gives this arrangement a more dramatic impact.

27 Ways to Spark Some Romance in Your Relationship

January 18, 2018

Think back to when you first started dating your partner. Everything they did was adorable, you spent at least an hour getting ready before seeing them, and you got butterflies in your stomach every time they walked through the door.

Thoughtful Messages to Write in a ‘Get Well Soon’ Card

January 15, 2018

When a loved one falls ill, it can be hard to put difficult emotions and well wishes into words on paper. Rather than wracking your already-stressed brain for the right words, try penning some of these messages in your “get well soon” card.

For Your Mother

  • To the woman who raised me to be strong, I share some of that strength with you. I know you’ll get through this because you’re the strongest person I know. I love you and am wishing you all the best in your recovery.
  • It wasn’t until now that I truly realized all that you do for me — like always knowing where my stuff is! All joking aside, I can’t begin to tell you how much I love and appreciate you. I know you’ll be back on your feet, feeling better than ever, in no time.
  • I’m just now realizing that, apparently, even Wonder Woman can get sick. Sending lots of positive vibes and even more hugs and kisses your way as you heal, mom.
  • I know this isn’t the way you wanted to spend your time, but take comfort in knowing that you’ll come out of this stronger than ever. Wishing you all the best as you make your way towards a speedy recovery!

Everyday Reasons to Send Flowers

January 10, 2018

Each February 14, Americans send more than 200 million flowers to loved ones. Around December 25, Americans spend nearly 1 billion dollars on flowers — but this probably isn’t coming as much of a surprise to you.

Holidays like Valentine’s Day and Christmas are some of the most popular days to send and receive flowers. But what about a day like, say, June 11, or November 14? No, they’re not holidays or special observances (though we can’t guarantee it’s not your birthday or anniversary), but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still be sending flowers to the ones you love.

Sending flowers “just because” is a simple way to show someone you love them, were thinking about them, or just want to put a smile on their face. This year, send flowers to someone because…
