It's spring break!

Um, where did that last month go? It's now the middle of March, the daffodils are blooming and I've got 9 days off! I plan to paint a few rooms, drink a few lattes, play at the park with the boys, attend a yoga class or two, and spend some time remembering and celebrating the best friend I ever had. An entire year without you, Em... I miss you every day. 

I'll be back soon, friends. With more pictures than you can possibly imagine!

Dreary Sunday daydream

It's been windy and rainy for days now. I'm tired of it. Tired of the damp and the cold and the way my hair goes all frizzy when it gets wet. I'm ready for summer, and hours spent lounging on the deck in the sun, with a good book and a cold beverage. Come on, July!

Saturday morning daydream

You know what I would love to be doing this weekend? Spending a few days in New York City with girlfriends, shopping, eating, strolling the Upper West Side... I think that would be pretty much perfect.

The first week of February

Sipping cinnamon dolce lattes. Making Valentines. Walking in the wind. Warming up by the fire. Dinner in Chinatown. It's been a good week, and a busy one. School has been crazy. We got through Kindergarten registration, Chinese New Year celebrations, and our bowling field trip. Now with 100 Day and Valentine's Day coming up, I'm wondering when I'll find the time to start assessing again and writing report cards. Thank goodness for yoga and long hot bubble baths. And knowing that everything always works out in the end. 

How are you? Anything new and exciting happening where you are?

Much Love Monday {last week of January edition}

I've always been quite partial to Mondays. Does that make me weird? Maybe. But whatever. I think it's good to think positive and make the most of a brand new week. That being said, I do love a good sleep-in, and I had one yesterday, for the first time in ages... so hooray for Sundays, too!

Here are a few other things making me happy on this foggy Monday morning {the last one in January!}

  • The long and lovely walk/ride/scoot I had with the boys yesterday. 2 hours, 2 parks, too many roads and trails and trees to count, and plenty of glorious sunshine. It was perfect! Really must do that on a more regular basis...
  • Fresh baked apple muffins for breakfast
  • Groceries delivered to the door!
  • The new series of Sherlock 
  • A clean, tidy living room with nary a Lego brick underfoot :)
  • Working with good friends who love kindergarten as much as I do
  • Organized cupboards and closets
  • Yoga + meditation = a calmer, happier me
  • I'm taking my class on a field trip to the bowling alley today. I'm getting paid to go bowling. Awesome!
  • This spring-like weather we've been having lately
  • Letters and emails from my favourite people {including all the old messages, texts and cards from Em...}
Happy Monday, my lovelies. More soon,
Erin xo

PS: January's almost over! We made it!

Summer. The south of France. This is what dreams are made of.

Happy things with which to end the week

January has been pretty good so far. I am loving wintertime in kindergarten!

The kids love to create snowman after snowman from the glittery playdough I made. Aren't they cute?

Speaking of snowmen, I adore all the wintry artwork we've been making. These snowmen with their colourful, bingo dabbered backgrounds make me especially happy.

My new chalk board mug is pretty awesome.

My favourite page from last year's calendar is now a permanent fixture on my classroom wall. 

Merry Christmas to us! Cassie's parcel from England arrived today! Thank you, sweet friend.

I got a Kobo eReader for Christmas. That thing is awesome! And tonight I got a "75% 
off your first purchase" so I'm definitely making some book choices this weekend.

I went back to yoga last Friday and I'm so excited to be back there tonight...

Happy Weekend, friends!

Saturday morning daydream

A sunny window seat on a bright winter morning, a cup of tea and a good book {or stack of stationery} and I'd be happy as pie.
