Something about Memorial Day and the unofficial start to Summer that makes me come alive! I start counting down the days until schools out and the excitement of long starry nights, pool parties and BBQs. Making memories that last the whole winter through. In between soaking up the sun and enjoying yourself this weekend (where ever you are) Check out the cool links below. Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
My grandmother was an amazing cook and had several bookcases that were filled with cookbooks. She would take them to bed and read them before falling asleep at night. Much like her I am drawn to looking at cookbooks or recipes online. I love getting inspiration day in and day out from different food bloggers that I follow and seeing their beautiful creations they make. One thing I love is that so many bloggers have made good, wholesome recipe inspiration available for people, especially those with special dietary restrictions. Keep on reading!
I have been trying to find different ways to become waste free. When I read about how easy it was to make your own candles, I thought it was awesome. We do not use candles in my house. However, when mosquito season arrives, I need all the help I can get when outdoors. Using essential oils, I made the candles waste free. Keep on Reading!
I love going to TJ Maxx! I will search the racks and shelves looking for gifts and goodies to bring home. Today I found a really cool wooden cutting board in the kitchen section and thought….
please add cheese and wine this would make an adorable welcome sign.
Good morning all! I am so looking forward to the weekend ahead with my family. We have been so unsettled while we wait to move into a house and are lucky to be staying at a friend’s house while they are out of town. We are looking forward to a very slow paced and relaxing weekend filled with time in the pool, walks with the pups, and playtime. I am also excited to see what Meghan Markle will be wearing! Anyone planning on watching the Royal Wedding tomorrow morning?? Keep on reading!

Life can get hectic some times. Whether its a job, family, friends, and/or relationships, we are all jugging a lot of tasks. Sometimes I can feel my anxiety levels rising and I realize that I need to take a step back and asses the situation. There are a few things that I have learned over time that has helped to ease my anxiety and I thought I would share them with you. First, I want to reiterate that anxiety is not necessarily a bad thing when it is steered in a positive light. It helps in times of preparation (EX: Presentation). It can even make me do the best that I can as I have high personal standards of myself, thanks to that bit of worrying. Anxiety used in the right ways is a great motivator! Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like your anxiety isn’t justified. We all feel anxious at some point in life and some of us are more in tuned to our body’s reactions to stress more then others.
Happy Friday Y’all! At our house, it was a week full of changes, happy energy and family time. I also think my family has Spring fever! We can see the finish line at the end of the school year and the start of Summer fun. My children and I have planted our garden and impatiently waiting for ripe berries and fresh veggies. In the mean time, we are filling our time with a weekend of brunch, a children’s play and sports. Whatever you are doing this weekend, take a minute and put your feet up and check out the great links below: Keep on Reading!
