Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Puddle Jumping Our Way Through Safe Water Play

Summer is still in full swing where I live. North Carolina doesn’t usually start to cool down until the end of September which is both a blessing and a curse. Safe water play in these warmer months is extremely important. One huge benefit in our favor though would be our puddle jumpers. Whether its a day at the lake, the community pool, or even our inflatable pool in the back yard – I have peace of my mind that my children are safe in their puddle jumpers.

Cherry Almond Muffins

I remember growing up my grandmother had a cherry tree in her backyard and she always had extra cherries in the Spring and Summer to share with us when we visited. Now that I am getting settled in our own place, I am trying new recipes for my son and myself. My son loves muffins and instead of buying muffins at the store, I wanted to start baking again. We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week!

Cool Upgrades Moms Want And Need

As moms, we are usually the last to upgrade or buy new things for ourselves. When it comes to new clothes and such, my son is the first to get new clothing and shoes, meanwhile, my shoes are a couple of years old. However, my son is growing like crazy, so it seems he needs new clothes once or twice a year. We found some cool upgrades moms want and need! 

Cool Upgrades Moms Want And Need

Moms, let’s face it. We love spending time with our families and when we are out and about running errands, or just spending the day away from home, we like to stay connected. Our kids may or may not have their own tablets and we have our smartphones. We are a generation that uses electronics.

One Recipe Book You Can’t Go Without

Write To Me - Recipes Passed Down
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Ever find yourself in a rut wishing you had Aunt Suzie’s spectacular zucchini recipe? Maybe Great-Grandma Karen’s classic Chocolate Cake recipe? Yeah, I feel you. I have been there too many times to count. Even if I ask for the recipe, I don’t have anywhere to store it so that I don’t lose it. So into the cabinet, it goes stuck in a random book where I hope to find it next time I need it. I recently came across a new type of recipe book though and it is a huge game changer when it comes to storing family recipes. Potentially a new family heirloom? An heirloom of recipes but an heirloom no less.
