DIY Wood Sign

If you know me, you know I am a little sentimental about so many things – especially teaching my kids kindness and truly being a good example to others.  For this reason, you may find inspiring signs throughout my home.

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 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.
