About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

A Super Easy Way to Give to your Community

We are all blessed.  Whether you're blessed with money, great health, a family, a house to live in, a car to drive, employment, you are blessed.  You may have all these things or may only have one or two, either way, consider yourself blessed.   

I recently received an invitation for a food bank drive at our local fire departments.  What a great and easy way to give back to my community!  This is a great time to sort through your pantry and see what items you have extra's of and pack in a bag to give to someone in need.

I also learned of a toyraiser drive that will be happening next month.  What a perfect opportunity to bring my child's unused toys to someone that doesn't have the means to buy toys for their children.

There are so many ways you can give back to your community.  Google non-profit organizations in your city and just watch the amount of organizations that could use your help.  Try to find one organization and volunteer your time and/or resources to them this month.  You will definitely be the one blessed in the end.
