March Giveaway Winner

"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.
- Albert Camus

Congratulations to Anna S. from Mississauga for winning our March giveaway. Anna chose our “Easter Towel Cake” for her gift. Hope you enjoy it.

Anna sent us an email telling us about her best friend and the times she was there for her. Her email was a reflection of a beautiful friendship that every one of us need. We all have a special friend in our lives, someone who listens, someone who supports, or simply someone who forces us to pull ourselves together when life hits hard. If you are reading this post, please take a minute of your time to thank those special friends of yours and remind them how thankful you are for them being in your life. It doesn’t have to be a materialistic gift; it could be a phone call, an email, or a warm hug. The best gifts in life are those that come from the heart. Please help spread love and happiness in the world by a simple “thank you”.

The word, "Wedding" comes from the Greek word which means pledge, and this is exactly what a wedding is no matter what country or where it takes place. To “wed” is to pledge yourself to another person. There are only few acts we perform that are more pure and beautiful than the act of marriage.
Many of today's popular wedding ceremony and reception traditions can be traced to ancient Egyptian and European customs. These were often based on symbolism, superstition, folklore, religion, and even the belief that evil spirits could bring disease and death to newlyweds and crops, which was very important in many farm-based early cultures. Although the exact origin and usefulness of many of these early wedding traditions are not always clear, popular acceptance has allowed them to flourish. Besides, many of these wedding traditions are just plain fun!
According to various sources, some of the early marriages were literally carried out by the Groom and his "Bridesmen" who would kidnap a woman (the origin of "carrying a Bride over the threshold") from another tribe! The Groom and his fellow conspirators would then fight off the female's family of tribesmen with swords held in their right hand while the Groom would hold the captured Bride in his left hand, which is the origin of why a Bride stands on the left side of the Groom at a wedding.
If you wish to give a gift for a newly-wed couple, there is nothing more romantic than a pampering towel cake, which they will use over and over again. Sweet Intents Towel Cakes come packed with useful items for the couple to use. Choose from a variety of option between a romantic towel cake which has wine glasses to celebrate the occasion, a Breakfast In Bed for a blissful morning, or one of our spa cakes for a whimsical experience.

Get Them Hooked on Reading

Enjoy reading yourself. If your child often sees you with a book in your hands, he will be more likely to read simply by your example.

Before your child is old enough to read for himself, cultivate a love of books by reading aloud to him. This is also a good time to teach proper book care! (“We turn the pages carefully,” etc.)

Start at a low reading level that will be easy for your child. You can gradually bring him to a higher level as his confidence and interest in reading increases.

Begin reading a book aloud, or read parts of it aloud, to pique your child’s interest in the story. He just might decide to finish the book himself!

What does your child enjoy doing or talking about? Tailor your book recommendations to suit his interests. Even a child who has difficulty reading is likely to persevere if the book holds his attention.

When your child has read and enjoyed a book, find similar books to suggest to him, or books by the same author. (“If you liked that book, you might like this one, too!)

Take your child book shopping with you, and let him choose some books that he thinks he would enjoy. Thrift stores often have a good selection of low priced books for children and young readers.

Be extreme: turn off or limit tv/video games/computer games. These things are giant pulls away from reading! Don’t however, say “No more tv until you read this book!”--that’s a sure way to make your child view reading as drudgery!

You can use movies or computer games to your advantage. Encourage your child to read the book or story a movie was based on, or other similar books.
