“When we think of the best memories of our childhood often those memories are simple things with our families” - Allison
In this time of quarantine there are many of us who are missing out on major milestones of our families and kids lives. We are missing graduations, the last days of preschool, the last days of middle school, parties, and celebrations with family. This week should have been my preschooler’s graduation, I have shed a lot of tears over this. I know some may roll their eyes and think, it’s JUST preschool graduation. But it’s a major milestone that I didn’t realize my mama heart needed and was so important until it was taken away. So as I scrambled to figure out what we were going to do to celebrate and to make my son feel special while in quarantine, I turned to my friend Allison Carter, the queen of celebrations!
