There’s just something about having a daughter that makes you feel a touch sentimental. From the moment she outgrows the outfit she came home from the hospital in, you’ll find yourself getting teary-eyed at the littlest thing. As with most strong emotions, the best thing to do with the feeling of sadness you get when you see that your daughter is growing up is to channel it into something creative and productive. Creating a keepsake box for your daughter is one of the ways you can channel that energy. Instead of feeling sad when she outgrows your favorite outfit or when it’s time to replace a drawing that’s been on the fridge forever, get excited about the possibility of sharing those memories with your daughter when she’s grown. So how do you create a keepsake box for your daughter? This guide will help!

After the euphoria of the proposal wears off, questions of when and where wiggle to the forefront of your mind—and, believe it or not, everyone else’s. Whether you ultimately decide on a big wedding or a small wedding, chances are good you’ll want at least some other people there with you to witness and celebrate your union. Because weddings are often planned a year or more out, and because no one wants to spend that entire time answering the same three questions over and over again, save the dates have become a popular tool for the modern couple to give out the basic most basic information about their wedding: Where it is, what the date is, and what time it’s occurring.
Learning that you’re pregnant causes a swell of emotions. Those two pink lines can be overwhelming--proof positive that your life is about to change for good. Once you get over the initial shock, you’ll want to share your news: first with your spouse, then your extended family, and finally the world. As a woman who has recently started planning a family, I’ve done a lot of research on fun, unique ways to make that special announcement when the day comes. Here are my favorite ways to announce a pregnancy.
