Pet Treats featuring @MintiesTreats and Betsy Farms


Recently our small furry family members had the opportunity to enjoy some fun treats I was asked to review. They were some very happy little doggies and dare I say their excitement level was quite likely far higher than even my littlest children over review products!

Reflections of Laughter and Sadness

In a time when the world seems upside down and more evil than ever. Where the balance of society and culture has shifted remarkably in the wrong direction. Light and hope are absolute necessities. While all of the desperation and need should not be taken lightly, it should not be shoved under the carpet nor forgotten, those like me must sometimes seek solace, reprieve and relief from the heaviness of it all or we will suffocate. We do this by breathing in the little things of life. The ... [ Read More ]

A Bedroom Makeover with Cozy Wall Art


We moved in to our new home a little more than a year ago.  When we moved in the upstairs was pretty much all white and ivory - from the walls to the trim, to the rugs.  Of course, everything looked clean, and bright, but for months and months I've been wanting to make my kids' rooms something special for them.  When Cozy Wall Art asked if I would like to test their products in my home, it was just the kick in the butt that I needed to get started! Disclosure:  As always, the opinions in this ... [ Read More ]

Celebrating Happy


I'm currently in rebellion against several trends I am seeing online in particular. The current culture of moms who publicly shame and rant and vent is horrifyingly prevalent... and loud... and dare I say it, absolutely obnoxious. Is that really the kind of women we are now? Ones that don't hesitate to spit in the face of all decency and kindness and empathy towards another mother? Every time I see this in social media or online, my mind rebels and fills with words of encouragement for moms to ... [ Read More ]

Schoola – Support Schools by Shopping


As we hear more and more about cuts in school spending we know that means more than just less money... it means fewer programs, complete program cuts and in many cases even inadequate staff. As we find ourselves in an age where public school is declining in so many areas parents are (despite paying taxes) having to chip in for more and more of their child's education if they want to continue seeing programs such as art and music continue to be offered in school. So what happens when that isn't ... [ Read More ]
