The gift arrived in a pretty pink box that screamed-” This is going to be something very special”. The “Love” Disk Charm is approximately 15.5mm X 14mm. Stamped disk charm available in 14k yellow gold, white gold or pink gold.Our signature “Love” charm is the perfect gift for any occasion including birthdays, anniversaries, and bridal parties.

It really melted my heart! There was no way I could say no- So, this beautiful necklace has found a home and will be loved for years to come by my sweet daughter. In addition, the necklace adds even more beauty to the charm. It is strong enough and the clasp has quality and is also easy to work.  LoveNeck

Nothing makes my heart smile more than waking up to flowers! Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxoxoox

Love is something that is celebrated in my house and my marriage. Hubby and I have been married over 25 years and love being in love. Throughout the years one of the staples of our relationship has been hubby always surprising me with flowers. Sometimes gorgeous arrangements, sometimes bouquets, and sometimes just a single rose, but there is just something so sweet about the doorbell ringing and flowers being on the other side of the door. The flowers above were delivered the other day and my heart just melted. Maybe it was the scent of the beautiful red roses, maybe it was the two hearts that adorned the vase, maybe it was the thought of Love…..Love and Valentine’s Day being around the corner. Whatever it was, it was an incredible feeling that only Teleflora could deliver. 

This gorgeous rose is one of many roses in the “Pair of Hearts” arrangement. This definitely put a smile on my face and warmed my heart!

Teleflora Delivers This Christmas Season #HolidayGiftGuide15 #SendCheer

Teleflora Delivers This Christmas Season

telefloragroupRecently I hosted an annual event, #HolidayGirlsNightOut for some of my local friends. The night brought fun, food and all things Christmas. Our house looked especially festive adorned with Teleflora arrangements. Teleflora debuted  a amazing lineup with two bouquets paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of “A Charlie Brown Christmas”: the Snoopy’s Cookie Jar Bouquet and the Peanuts Christmas Mug Bouquet. Lush chrysanthemums and carnations adorn a decorated doghouse (which doubles as a cookie jar) and a hand-painted ceramic mug capturing Charlie Brown joyfully ice skating with his best furry friend for any collector’s dream holiday gift. If you are looking for a great Christmas gift, Teleflora is definitely the way to go. It just brightens up the house and the scent of real flowers is just not replaceable.

telefloradianeIn addition to the Peanut’s bouquets, Teleflora also debuts two beautiful holiday inspired arrangements decked out in snowflakes and Christmas trees for an eye-catching conversational piece. Each bouquet arrives professionally-arranged by a local florist and is presented in a keepsake holiday container that can be enjoyed for many Christmases to come. We cannot wait to fill our keepsakes up with hot cocoa and cookies! With a Teleflora gift this Christmas you will be giving not only a beautiful floral arrangement but also a keepsake to use for many Christmas’s to come. I am completely obsessed with mine and would recommend one to anyone. What a beautiful gift.

“Sharing with Care Bears” personalized storybook by Twig Tale #ShareYouCare

“Sharing with Care Bears” personalized storybook by Twig Tale

carebears1In this house we are all about reading. Being a child of two teachers means total exposure to all types of books. So when we had the chance to check out the “Sharing with Care Bears” personalized storybook by Twig Tale we could not wait. Reading is always more fun when a book is personalized. Who doesn’t love to see their own name and pictures throughout the story? In addition, our family loves Care Bears! We are a total Care Bear family for life.

carebears2 carebears3

When it comes to creating your own personalized book, it is one word- easy! The book is online and you simply put in the photos of your choice and fill in the names. You can choose soft or hard covered copies at the end of the process. I have to say, I am pretty much obsessed with anything personalized and definitely am buying a few of these for the nieces and nephews. How can you lose. The Care Bears “Sharing with Care Bears” book also teaches a lesson about caring and sharing. We love books that bring up issues that children may be having in their own life. This book is  a great conversation opener for families.

carebears4 carebears5

If you are looking for a holiday book, birthday book or any time book you really need to look no farther. There is just something so special about Care Bears and when you combine them with your own children’s pictures it is just a dream come true in a book. It will definitely be a book that will be read over and over again and passed down to generations to come.
