I find gift giving overwhelming. It’s not that I dislike giving gifts. I love giving gifts. It’s the process of thinking of a gift. Thinking of an appropriate gift.

In Australia, we celebrate Father’s Day this Sunday. Over the last few weeks I have felt quite overwhelmed with the task of finding an appropriate gift for my husband to celebrate his fatherhood. He has done so much for our family. He is a great father, and his love language is gifts. What on earth do you get a man like that?

This week’s Instagram:


This week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op is dedicated to my husband, the father of my children. Here are some very inspirations from last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op that I think would very much tickle his fancy.
