I love making wreaths for my home for each season and holiday of the year. I buy more of my supplies for super cheap at the dollar store, so I can make more than one wreath each season. I always hang wreaths on my front and back doors. Right after St. Patrick’s Day, I hung up my new Easter and spring wreaths including a burlap ribbon wreath decorated with foam egg stickers.

The Duck and Belvedere Castle features a rubber duck at Belvedere Castle, a folly in Central Park in Manhattan in New York City that contains exhibit rooms, an observation deck, and the location of the official Central Park weather station since 1919. A folly is a building constructed primarily for decoration but suggesting some other purpose because of its appearance.

If you are looking for a new parenting book to read, I highly recommend My Brown Baby written by Denene Millner. While the book focuses on African American motherhood from pregnancy and child-rearing to relationships and the politics of parenting black children, I found the writing and essays quite accessible to parents of all colors. I found myself drawn in immediately to the short essays. As a white mother raising white children, I found the book insightful and powerful. Millner brings the differences that moms of colors and mothers of children of color face, which I consider extremely important in this day and age. My Brown Baby is a must-read for mothers raising children of color — and for parents everywhere.

Written for children with deeper grown-up themes, Otis Grows written by Kathryn Hast and illustrated by L.M. Phang encourages kids and parents to read the book together to discuss the changes that accompany growth and growing older and how to find diversity and beauty in a sometimes ugly world. Otis is a red onion whose mother is a yellow chicken and whose father is a blue flower, and his parents fight all the time. Upon running away from the fighting, Otis discovers that the world is still full of beauty — if we slow down and stop rushing past creeks.
