Coffee, journaling and of course a craft! :)

    “The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those  we love, they will bloom like flowers.” -Thich Nhat Hanh

It's been such a lovely morning with my little love. This morning I was able to have a nice cup of coffee and sit and write in my daughter's journal.  When we arrived home from the hospital with our daughter, I thought it would be nice to start a journal for her. In this journal I write about how much she amazes us, and how she is constantly growing and changing each day. I hope that when she's older she can look back and see how much she has changed our lives for the better. In this journal I remind her that she is loved, beautiful, creative, and one of a kind.

This morning I thought it would be nice to do a craft with my daughter. We decided since I was making muffins for breakfast to use the left over baking cups to create flowers. So what you would need if you are thinking of making this is:
(a few baking cups, glue, paper, green marker/or whatever color you decide to make the stem/ I used a piece of cardboard to give the stem of the flower some strength/ and of course some paint)

We painted the baking cups, colored the paper and cut each stem out, and allowed the cups to dry. Once they were all dry we glued them to the paper/cardboard. And in the end you are left with some beautiful creative flowers! :) I love craft time!!
