It’s this special time where it feels like time slows down for just for a moment. The rushing around slows down. The days it’s okay to not know the time it is and just be. We have been soaking in all the family time we can get. Snuggling our boys and enjoying them at these sweet ages, grateful for these slower days and extra time at home.”

She added, “Hoping this is not my last year of the teddy bear tree for Cal-Bear. I love how much he adores it”.
