Create Every Day _ Love in the Lunchbox

A personal note on a cut out photo from a magazine is all it takes to add cheer to a lunchbox!

This morning I was out of the “lunchbox quotes” I started putting in my daughter’s lunchbox at the beginning of the
school year.

Friday~ I was down to a tiny yellow stickie that read:
“Have a blessed day~ I heart you. MOM”
which my daughter stuck on my forehead when she got
home from school. There WAS a slight smile there
beyond the bold thumb to the head.

Today~ I cut a picture from a magazine~
A little girl reading a book…

Today the fine print reads (in sharpie)
“Have a Magical Monday Ann Kat (heart)

It’s the little things we do…
and that we start…
that tend to become traditions even when we
didn’t intend them 🙂

Happy Monday!
