Breathing Room: 6 Amazing Sights That Will Take Your Breath Away on an Arkansas Vacation

Easy DIY Homemade Hot Cocoa Gift Set with Recipe

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador I received product to facilitate this post. When it's cold outside, there is nothing I love more than a good cup of hot cocoa.

Homemade hot cocoa mix also lacks many of the processed ingredients you find in store-bought mixes such as hydrogenated oils, and I think it tastes so much yummier!

The Perfect Curated Candle Gift: Vellabox

I was provided with promotional products from Vellabox to facilitate my post. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Ben and the girls spent the afternoon hanging our outdoor lights while I worked inside to finish up my own Christmas decor. I finished well before they did, so I took advantage of the kid-free time which doesn't happen often these days.

Why I’m Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday today surrounded by family and friends. I am very thankful for the opportunity to spend today cherishing the ones I love. We started the day with Thanksgiving lunch with my family. I'm especially thankful to have one person at the Thanksgiving table this year, my Papa. He has had a really rough year healthwise, and honestly a few months ago none of us expected to celebrate another Thanksgiving or Christmas with him. I am thankful he pulled through such a dire situation, and at the happy young age of 80, I am grateful he is still … [Read more...]
