As I walked into work this morning I was greeted by the smell of bacon and eggs wafting through the air. My nose led me to the back room where I saw some very sleepy girls and adults, yawning and scooping lasagna and other treats into their hungry mouths. I laughed in surprise and slapped myself in the face for I had totally forgotten on of the coolest events ever to be held at The Heart! Last night a new program called "Girls Group" kicked off by holding a 24 hour lock in where they worked together in creating a zine. The zine focused around bringing women and girls together in the hopes of creating an empowering zine to spread across The Yukon. I'm particularly excited about this project and I'm anxious to see what the "Girls Group" will do next. I have a feeling these bright young ladies have created something unique and inspiring. If you'd like to receive one, pop on into The Heart or shoot an email our way!
In other news, the ball pit has been bustling as usual and we've had tons of activity both up and downstairs. Sue is keeping the Valentines crafts going and making sure everything is in tip top shape. We're open from10 am until 3:30 pm today so don't hesitate to say hello. A big thanks to Susie-Anne who painted the vibrant orange around the beautiful hand mural upstairs in The Heart. This place gets spiffier and brighter every day! I hope you're all enjoying your day and the beautiful weather. Happy Saturday AND Valentines day from us here at The Heart!
P.s Don't forget to smooch your animals and smother your loved ones with hugs and pizza because nothing says love quite like pizza.
