New Year – Face the Fear

Happy New YEAR! It’s hard to believe 2018 has come to a close and we are already well into March 2019! As the years continue to fly by quickly, I can’t help but reflect on the time passed. I always used to listen to my parents and their friends when I was younger. They would say how time seems to pass like the blink of an eye. When I had children I remember being told: “Cherish these moments because they will go so fast and before you know it those kids will be out of the house and married themselves”. I used to chuckle a bit thinking time wouldn’t seem to pass by as fast as they say.

Now I look back and think, whoa, they sure were right. My first baby is in his junior year of high school and next year will be headed off to college. I get it now, I understand what they were all saying. It seems as though it has been a blink and I wish I could rewind and do it all over again and again.

Hibiscus/Mint Tea


Valentines Day is tomorrow.  I cannot even believe how time is flying by.  I have been wanting to share a fun drink with you and I thought, why not share it around Valentines Day?  It’s Ruby Red and is actually really good and has some health benefits too!  (High-five)!

Are you a tea drinker?  If you are – awesome!  If not, still give this a try… as this isn’t anything like your average tea.

For these drinks, we use an organic hibiscus tea…

Did you know…

Hibiscus Tea helps with inflammation, is cancer-fighting, improves the immune system… and the list goes on. Plus, this tea is naturally sweet, so it is a good alternative for any sugary juices or soda.

The St. Anthony Hotel – San Antonio

Interior of The St. Anthony Historic Hotel, San Antonio

I went on a trip recently to that I wanted to share with you!  My husband and I travel a lot with the kids and try to plan trips for the two of us too.   We travel so much I thought I would share with you some of my favorite places, and hopefully, it will give you an idea of what our experience is and help you decide if you would like to visit as well.

For my birthday my husband wanted to take me somewhere special.  I love historical hotels because of the history and interiors.  I found a beautiful historic hotel in the heart of San Antonio, Texas.   My heart went pitter patter when looking at pictures of  The St. Anthony Luxury Hotel.  I have to tell you, we were not disappointed. This place is GORGEOUS!
