When I was teaching, I would plan each holiday in advance. I knew exactly what I was going to do and I made sure everything was prepared. I really miss that!! Maia's not old enough to appreciate most of this yet, but I don't want to get 'stale' or out of practice! I wanted to share with you 13 ideas that I found while surfing the web. If you're at a loss for how to celebrate or want some new inspiration, here you go!
