Superior Source Vitamins Spring Giveaway


Welcome To The Superior Source Vitamins Spring Giveaway!

It's Monday. I'm focusing on health today. I find as I get a little bit older that it's important to monitor what is going into my body, and that I am deliberate in scheduling daily activity. It's so easy to take a day off, but a day can turn into days (plural), or a week, or worse, so I am doing my best to ensure this is an ongoing habit in my life. Along side healthy eating choices and exercise, I am also taking vitamins. If you are taking them too, or interested in doing so, Superior Source Vitamins is a good brand to consider.

This giveaway is part of our Spring Gift Guide. Stop by to see all the great giveaways and products!

Some Salads That Bring Real Flavor

 Disclosure: This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

Whether you’re trying to cut meat out or just to build a great diet, salads are often seen as a necessary but unappetizing option to fill in one of the meals in your life. The basic salad based around the lettuce leaf can be a little bland, there’s no denying that. But those are far from the only salads that exist. You don’t need a ton of mayo or dressing to make a salad taste good. Here are a few types worth trying, instead.

The Day my Son got to Play on an NBA Court

We got to Miami early because I wanted to beat traffic and make allowances for getting lost, which is something I sometimes do. My inner GPS has always been a little broken. Thankfully though, we got there with ample time to spare. This was a big day for the teen, he had been invited to scrimmage on the NBA Miami Heat court. It was a very exciting thing for us, and the anticipation had us amped up for days.

--- Nurturing Love & Honesty In A Committed Relationship

This is a collaborative post. Please welcome today's contributor.

It's that time of year when everyone is talking about love and all things related to it (hello, Valentine's Day). I'm not an expert, of that you can be sure, and in light of true transparency, those of you who know me, know I did not write this article (bah humbug, lol). Today's writer, however, believes in romance 100% and they have some tips to share you! Considering it's almost February 14th, I'd say it's a very timely submission. Shall we begin?

Most people who have been part of a relationship or marriage for some time will always tell you that they cannot be taken for granted. When they are, that’s when one or both parties stop making the effort, and things only deteriorate from there.

It’s important to think of a relationship or marriage as a fire to be kindled, then, rather than a vessel to be filled, or a task to complete. We have as much responsibility to this forty years down the line as we do two months in.

Of course, nurturing love and honesty at the same time is essential. The two feed into one another, and reinforce each virtue. If you can achieve that, then you can achieve anything as a couple. After all, our better half need not only be our love interest, but our life ally, and our best friend. It’s okay not to fawn over one another every single day with overzealous romantic displays, but that undercurrent of deep, mature love should be well tended to in order to keep it vibrant.

In this post, we’ll discuss a few measures for achieving exactly that:

It's Not Too Late! Love Out Loud with Teleflora

 Disclosure: I received a free product or a discount code to use towards the purchase of one.

The beauty of Teleflora (besides their gorgeous bouquets and containers) is that you can. still order from them and have a big, beautiful bouquet of flowers delivered to someone by Valentine's Day!! Check the link to see...some locations have same day delivery (though I recommend ordering earlier for your own peace of mind). 

The second thing I love about them is their fantastic ads!! Watch the YouTube video above to see the current one, hosted by Emmy award-winning host, comedian, and author Loni Love.  Watch the heartwarming moments of how flowers and a special gesture can bring people together and start a movement. As Love journeys around the city, something beautiful happens--women start complimenting one another and the rest is all smiles and tears. It's uplifting and positive, and I love everything about it. I think it is time to love out loud.
