Father’s Day Gift Ideas from Etsy

By Kate Riley June 6, 2016

Hello friends, welcome to another week! After wrapping up another school year I took it easy at home playing with my nephews and watching the Stanley Cup and NBA Championship since two Bay Area teams are battling it out right now. Now that summer has arrived my focus is on keeping those kids entertained! They have a few camps coming up and we will be taking a few trips as well.

It dawned on me that Father’s Day is less than two weeks away so I went in search of something special and I love to browse Etsy for unique gifts from small businesses. Here are a few I found that may help you find something special for a husband, father, uncle or grandpa.

Leather Apple watch bands from Choice Cuts.

Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley June 3, 2016

Today is the last day of school! It always makes for a crazy week, gathering up all the classroom materials, contributing to teacher gifts, etc. I’m excited for this summer, I’ll be traveling a lot and also working on the flip house, summer seems to fly by faster each year so my plan is to savor each day until before we know it, the kids go back to school in the fall. Cheers to the start of a great summer!
