Some fresh air and outdoor activity was just what the doctor ordered. Check out some of my favorite ski goodies below! Have fun!

Valentine’s Day Gifts

Ahhhh Valentine’s Day is just a week away! This is by far one of my favorite holidays. I love that you can celebrate it no matter your relationship status! “Galentine’s Day” has made a huge surge in recent years because celebrating with your gal pals is always a great idea! I think kids have the most fun with this holiday, making cards to hand out in school, offering each other treats and super cute little gifts. If you are IN LOVE then lucky you because this day was made for you! Check out some of my favorite gifts for anyone on your list this year!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
