(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: Ron Jon Surf Shop

Back when the youngest was the smallest in the family (he's now the tallest) 
and my daughter and Juan were expecting their first child (they now have two).

This was from a visit we took years ago to Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach, FL.
If you stop at one of the smaller stores around the USA, they are absolutely NOT like this one.
This Ron Jon is the world's largest surf shop (52,000 square ft) & is definitely fun to visit.

---- Six Reasons Thank You Notes Matter

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

It’s not a secret that when most of us were children, we were asked to send thank you notes to family members who gave us gifts. It’s a very old but longstanding tradition with most families, and there is a lost art to a handwritten letter these days. Instead of writing letters by hand, most people prefer to communicate electronically because it’s much faster. The power of a handwritten note is long forgotten by most people, but receiving a handwritten note has so much love behind it that we each feel it when we get one!

There are few that expresses gratitude more than a handwritten letter complete with family letterhead at the top. A personal note makes a big difference to the way that people feel, and it shows a level of happiness and excitement that you are willing to provide to others. Below, we’ve put together six great reasons that thank you notes really do matter and you’ll be on your way to making someone else very happy.

Teleflora for Mother's Day!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary product or a discount code to use towards the purchase of one. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

What is it about dragonflies? I just don't know, but there is something so very intriguing about them to me. There was a period in my life where they were there at every turn.They fascinate me. 

And of course, I love Teleflora flowers. Been a huge fan for as long as I can remember. I used to send them to my mom every single year. She loved them and I now have all of her unique, gorgeous vases from those deliveries. 

Yes, the containers they deliver in are so nice that she saved every single one them. This year, I'm delivering myself flowers in her memory and I intend to cherish that delivery when it comes.

Blemishes and spots can affect your mental health and how you see yourself. Fortunately, you can reduce the visibility of skin imperfections with readily available treatments. Me?

Almost Wordless Wednesday: How they Decorate for Easter in Prague


See the men in the tree hanging the Easter Egg ornaments?

According to, during Lent, trees in Prague's Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square are decorated with brightly colored ribbons and eggs. When this is finished, they will place the Paschal equivalent of the nativity scene at the base of the tree. They will also place an Easter Bunny in straw. We were lucky enough to get to visit once, when they were preparing for the approaching season.

Tuck Your Perfume in Your Pocket!

Disclosure: I received complimentary items or a discount code to use towards the purchase of them. All opinions however, are genuine and my own.


I have found the perfect travel solution for those who love fragrance!! If you are a perfume addict (*cough*) or just someone who always brings along your perfume when you travel, you know that it can sometimes be difficult to do! Bottles leak or worse, break, even when you take precautions to prevent them from doing so. In addition to that, airlines only allow you to bring a certain amount of liquid on board, so if you are flying and just using a carry-on, you have to purchase atomizers, travel sizes, or take your perfume from your full-sized bottles and move into much smaller ones. These petals (or towelettes) from Pinrose solve your every fragrance need! 

These long-lasting fragrances are super easy to tote. The size of a wet nap, you can simply toss them in your purse, luggage or even your pocket, and forget about them entirely until it comes time to use them. No liquid, no muss, no fuss, and definitely no spills. And they smell great!! I'm not sure it's proper perfume protocol but I tuck mine back in after I use it, fold over the little packet and use it again later if I want to refresh my scent.

Try the same Pinrose Sampler Kit I did to see which fragrance might work best for you. They have included two of each of their scents in this kit, so you can test and enjoy them all.

--- The Best Coffees for Coffee Lovers

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

If you can’t get enough of the dark bitter boost of caffeine and are getting more particular about your beans, it might be time to start branching out and trying different flavors and types of coffee.

Some people have their coffee with cream, sweeteners, sauces, syrups, etc. In comparison, others prefer to have their coffee with just a little milk - or maybe none at all.

What is true of all coffee lovers is that there are some coffees that you have to try when the opportunity arises.
