This month is all about LOVE and expressing that love through kindness!

Valentine’s Day will be here before you know it and let’s face it– we’re parents and we’re always busy! Instead of heading out to the store, simply fire up your printers and print these original HOMER cards. You and your little ones can personalize them together by coloring, adding glitter, leaving notes and so much more– that way they stand out! Best of all, these adorable cards don’t require candy additions, so you’re following the teachers’ directions and everyone in the class can feel special!

Happy ❤️ Day!

Our first story comes from Homer’s Co-founder and mother of three young girls, Stephanie Dua. Recently, Team Homer has been pushing the boundaries on who we will be in the future and developing a stellar team to make it happen. Growing, however, always comes with a few growing pains. After completing a few team-building sessions, Stephanie sat down with her oldest child to talk about her week. Here’s what happened:
