Things I’ve Been Loving: In-Drawer Knife Block
I used to have a knife block on my counter, but I didn’t like crowding up my counter space with another item. Instead, I decided to put my knives in a drawer and this in-drawer knife block was the perfect solution! There are a bunch of different sizes, so measure your drawer before you order one. But this has been a gamechanger!

The Beauty Of Being NEEDED
Hello classic crew and happy Thursday! Welcome to another edition of my newsletter. I hope you all are doing fantastic! We are heading into March which is a super busy month because there are so many birthdays in my family! First, we have Jacob’s birthday. We’re planning a board game extravaganza with friends, as well as multiple other events to celebrate with family. Then, it’s Mr. Baby’s FIRST BIRTHDAY - can you believe it? I am SO excited to throw his birthday party. I’ve been planning it for a few months, so it should be really special.
On top of everyone’s birthdays, the Jewish holiday of Purim is in a couple of weeks, so we are looking forward to dressing up and hearing the story of Esther. Jacob and I will be re-wearing the costumes we wore to the Renaissance Faire and going as Robin Hood and Maid Marian, and Mr. Baby will be Little John! This is Mr. Baby’s first Purim, so I want to make it one we will remember. One of the ways we celebrate Purim is giving out food baskets to friends in our community, so today I went with my son to the Dollar Tree and picked out a bunch of fun items. Then I wrote a themed letter to tie everything together - would you all be interested in me sharing it? It’s pretty funny! Let me know in the comments below.
In today’s article, I wanted to talk about the beauty of being needed. This week has been pretty hectic for me. A friend of ours had a family emergency, so we were asked to help. Another friend had birthday plans that fell through, so I decided to plan her a surprise party at the last minute. Then, because it’s a surprise, she invited me on her actual birthday to go to lunch with her to celebrate, which meant I had to reschedule my day so that I could be there for her (which was absolutely lovely, but slightly stressful). And this was all on top of my normal work hours, taking care of my son, a long appointment I had scheduled yesterday, and household chores. Every routine I’ve had, every task I’ve wanted to get done, has gone out the window so that I can help the people I care about.
