You're Not too Kind, But I Don't Care...

It comes a point in life when you finally feel like an adult.  A good amount of years of young adulthood is spent wandering, waiting, hoping, hurting, living, laughing, learning..and then before you know've grown.  You had to go through all those years..some fun, and some difficult - all to become who you are today.  All to become stronger, and wiser for more years of life.  Life isn't easy, life isn't all hard, life isn't all anything.  It's up and downs.  It's life.  You are not alone in your struggles, while everyone has their own battles - we all share in that we are all LIVING.  

Celebrate Spring with Crafts and Sweet Halos #MTHalosFun

Can you believe it's already March, and Spring is a little over a week away?  What better way to get in the mood for the season other than some sweet crafts?  Mom Trends and Wonderful Halos hosted a family Spring crafts event last weekend at The Children's Museum of Art, and we had such a sweet time.  Yes, sweet like the Halos mandarins.  My son and my husband surprised me by getting really crafty in their space.  Who knew you could create the cutest bunnies, chicks, and so much more with Halos mandarins.  We love Halos, it disappears by the bags in our home as they are the perfect anytime anywhere healthy snack that pleases kids and parents alike.

A Weekend Escape at the Kenshire Campground

Getaways have become a must for our family.  I didn't travel much as a child, parents were too busy with work, and we were always busy with school.  I have a handful of memories doing a short getaway or two.  It just makes me that much more grateful for being able to give my children opportunities to learn through travel, and to simply experience it all.  I'm more than happy to share these experiences and life long memories with them.  Last year before the weather got too cold, we did a road trip from New York City to Pennsylvania, where we stayed in a small deluxe cabin at the Kenshire Campground for a few nights.  As expected it was a memorable trip.  Something about changing the daily scenery and getting out and away from the norm is incredibly refreshing.  The memories created during these trips are truly the most valuable ones.  Kenshire Campground is a beautiful campground located on two ancient ox-bows of Pine Creek.

Nestle Damak Fine Chocolate with Pistachios #DiscoverDamak

*I received the item/s for the purpose of review.  All opinions are a 100% my own.  
Chocolate with Pistachios
Did you know that the pistachio tree is one the oldest flowering nut trees on Earth?  People have eaten and enjoyed pistachios for nearly 9,000 years, and the NESTLΓ‰® Damak brand has been around since 1933.  It was finally time I tried the delicious pistachio chocolate bars.  It is the perfect combination of crunchy pistachios and rich chocolate.  It is available in a creamy, fine chocolate bar and a rich, dark chocolate bar.  The name Damak (pronounced "dih-mok) means "great taste" in Turkish.
