Free Information Packet: Helping Prevent or Reverse Blindness Caused by AMD


Age-related Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 55. Maybe some of you, or unfortunately a lot of you, have heard of it, or have a personal story to tell about yourself or someone you know who has been affected. Did you know though, that with treatment it can be managed, and that sometimes it can even be reversed? That is a fact, and thankfully there are those who are tirelessly working together to try and make AMD a thing of the past.

I'm Graduating in May!! 5 Reasons to Use Basic Invite for My (and Your!) Graduation Stationery Needs


Last year, the third of my four children graduated from high school. It was a big deal. When you have once in a lifetime moments...and high school graduation definitely qualifies, you want to commemorate that with quality keepsakes, such as the perfect announcement photographs, top-of-the-line invites, premium quality thank you cards (that people do keep!), etc. Basic Invites understands that, and just as their name suggests, they have all of the basics when it comes to your specialized stationery, covered. 

Make the milestone in your son or daughter's life extra special! These are the kinds of things (whether they realize it or not right now) that they will cherish for a lifetime. In fact, before you send even one announcement or invite out, be sure to take one aside to tuck in their 'baby box,' photo album, or somewhere else for safe keeping. It is something they WILL appreciate now, and in their years to come. I know these are just the kind of unique graduation invitations I will be using for my own (college) graduation celebration in May.

Virtuoso Bears: A Symphony for Baby!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.


Meet Ludwig, he plays Beethoven's greatest hits to your little one. This is such a wonderful gift idea for a baby shower, or to buy for anyone who has a small child. I have a bigger child, and as many of you know he's the world's biggest stuffed animal fan. He also happens to love classical music. That means when this came in the house, he begged to keep it. After taking it out of the box and examining it, I can see why he was so enamoured. This Virtuoso Bear is a little beauty!

Mangiacotti Whipped Body Lotion and Whipped Body Wash #Giveaway #seethegoodproject


What in the world is in that child's hand? It's not whipped cream, but it sure looks and feels a lot like it. It smells better though... a lot better! This is the Mangiacotti Whipped Body Lotion, that is stored in a can. There is also a whipped body wash that is contained the same way. I think they are special not only because of their storage, but because of the consistency and the delightful fragrances. That makes them perfect candidates for Mother's Day gift ideas because they are so indulgent!!

There are so many reasons I am considering switching to a Google Pixelbook.

It's Basketball Season: Hydrate with BODYARMOR

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Taking a basketball break, hydrating with Blueberry-Pomegranate BodyArmor Lyte.

That's my boy. He's drinking a Blueberry-Pomegranate BODYARMOR LYTE (just 3 grams of sugar per serving). There are 4 flavors of LYTE available. My son has tried Peach Mango, Cherry Berry, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Orange Citrus...he loves them all. One thing you should know, when he plays, he plays hard. Another thing to know...he takes the sport of basketball very seriously. He'll stay out far longer than he should, trying to get that last bit of energy out of him before he comes home and collapses on the couch. I used to try and shoo him directly to the shower, but these days I've gotten smarter and I put a towel down before he sits, ha! Simple, but effective and then after he hydrates and rests a bit more, both he and the towel go right to the wash (not together, of course). 

Happy Easter!


Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it. I hope you have a wonderful, warm and very blessed day! We went to Sunrise Service, just did the egg hunt, and now the child is building the Legos the Easter Bunny left behind (swell chap, that he is...the bunny and the boy). ;)  It's a beautiful day on all accounts! May God Bless and keep you always!
