Boat Rides

Tegan and I have been so grateful lately to be able to jump on boats and trains to escape for some small trips. We will be heading to Toronto on Monday, and Tegan is going to be leaving Hazel for the first time EVER. Nervous and excited, we can't wait to share our Toronto adventure.

I would like to leave you with some poems today that have hit my heart this week! Please enjoy and have such a wonderful Valentines weekend filled with all those whom you love.

No-Sew Heart Pillows

Valentine heart pillows DIY easy 

These Valentine heart pillows were super easy to make aaaaaand inexpensive! All you need is some embroidery thread, a hot glue gun and glue, scissors, pillows (or stuffing) and fabric. (The thicker the fabric the easier to make, and more sturdy the pillow will be). 
We bought basic pillows from Walmart because they were only $3.50, so it was way cheaper than buying stuffing on its own.

Fold the fabric in half, and then in half again so you end up having 2 even sides for the heart pillow. Draw out half of a heart, and cut. 

Line up the pieces of fabric, and glue the outside of the heart together. Leave about an inch and a half so that you can stuff the pillow. Fill it until it is full, and glue up the bottom.
