As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

My girls are snackers. When they get home from school, they want to be able to grab a quick snack to take with them on the way to after-school activities, or to enjoy while they do their homework. #ad Peanut Butter is a huge hit in our home, but it can get messy, so when I found out about Windstone Farms Creamy Peanut Butter Portable Packets, I couldn't wait to grab some. Instead of making a huge mess (and forgetting to close the lid) with a regular container of peanut butter, the girls can grab one packet and easily add it to just about anything. Some of our favorites are bananas, apples, pretzels, celery or crackers. They have fun creating new combinations and I love that they come in convenient 1.15oz squeezable packets. So much less mess! They are also perfect for their lunchboxes. The peanut butter is so creamy and delicious! BTW, they are naturally gluten-free! @windstonefarms peanut butter packets are now available at your local @walmart. Make sure to pick some up, and check out our stories for a special offer from Ibotta! What will you put #WindstoneFarmsPB on?

When people find out that I’m a full-time blogger, the first thing they always ask me is what a typical day looks like. #sponsored My answer usually includes one or more of the following words: crazy, busy, hectic, long and almost always includes either my laptop or my phone, in my face. By the end of the day, my eyeballs are exhausted and I can’t wait to get to sleep (as soon as I check my phone one last time). So at the risk of sounding vague and having people believe that I am just playing around on social media all day long, I thought it would be fun to show you what a day in the life of this super mom blogger is like…. Summer edition (because when the girls are in school, it’s a lot more hectic) as well as how I help my eyes filter blue light, thanks to @quantumnatural.

AD: Back-to-school time is a favorite in our house. I'm excited to get back to the daily peace and quiet, and the girls are excited to get back to their friends! While our excitement lies in very different places, one thing we can always agree on is that it's super fun to shop for back-to-school supplies. Especially when we can do it from the comfort of our own home! After going to multiple stores last year and not being able to find a school approved backpack for Lucia, this year, we made the smart move and got it (and her wireless headphones) on @eBay. They offer a money back gurantee, FREE shipping, save your gas ⛽️ and time ⏰ and do your back-to-school shopping on eBay this year! #eBayBackToSchool #HappeningOnEBay #eBay https://lnk2.io/wytbcWl

Things to Do in Florida {Series} – Whetstone Chocolate Tasting Tour

During our recent stay in St. Augustine, FL, we were provided with tickets to so many fun tours and attractions by the St. Augustine Visitors and Convention Bureau.  I’m continuing our “Things to Do in Florida” series with one of our favorites, the Whetstone Chocolate Tasting Tour in St. Augustine, FL.

Not many people know this, but when I was in college, I worked in a chocolate factory.  It was probably one of the most challenging jobs ever.  Not because it was hard work, but because it was hard to contain myself from eating everything.  The smell was not only amazing, but it stayed with you throughout the day.  We were taught to make truffles, molded chocolates and all kinds of delicious treats.  The bosses had just a few rules:

  1. If you break it, you eat it.
  2. You must lick the chocolate off of your hands before washing them thoroughly with soap and water.
  3. You must help yourself to any chocolates in the back room while you’re working.

It was a hard job, but someone had to do it.

When I found out that there was a chocolate tasting tour in St. Augustine, I knew that we HAD to go.  St. Augustine’s “Original Chocolate Tour” is led by Whetstone Chocolatiers. You will be introduced to the history and making of chocolate and the Whetstone story. A 4-tiered tasting distinguishes the characteristics of their dark, milk and white chocolate, cocoa nibs and more. Taste freshly made chocolates and confections while you walk through the factory. This tour is for the chocoholic with a discriminating palate searching for the subtleties that define artisan chocolates.

The tour starts off at the very beginning and takes you through exactly how chocolate is made.  Our tour was led by a gentleman who was not only funny, but so knowledgable.  He had no trouble answering my kids questions, as over the top and crazy as they were.  Before you walk into the actually factory, you are asked to wear these fashionable hair nets.  I couldn’t help but notice how cute Falynn looked in hers.  I may or may not have taken a few too many pictures of her in it.

One thing we didn’t have at our factory were these cool machines.  That’s probably because the owner of Whetstone Chocolates was actually an engineer.  He designed and built machines especially for his factory.  So while we were spending our days pouring chocolate into molds and banging out the air bubbles, Whetstone’s Chocolate factory can do so much more with a machine that knows exactly how much chocolate to fill and then another machine that wraps the chocolates in these pretty foil wrappers.

On this particular day, they were working on key lime chocolates and we were lucky enough to get to try one.  I’ll be honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of fruity chocolates for some reason. I love chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate covered apples but key lime wasn’t something I had ever tried before.  It was actually really good.  I even considered buying a bag when we were leaving.

So once you’re done with the tour, you are escorted out through their store.  By that time, you’ve tasted each of their chocolates (white, milk, and different types of dark) and have a pretty good idea of which one(s) you loved the most. Since each adult ticket to the chocolate tasting tour includes a $2 coupon towards any purchase, we had some coupons to use. Everyone that knows me, knows that I love a good deal. Who could pass that up?! We each wound up getting one package of our favorite thing and may or may not have finished it all by the time we got home, 5 hours later.

Oh and if you’re not a huge chocolate eater, you may enjoy their liqueur sauces which include chocolate amaretto wine, chocolate cabernet, butterscotch scotch and dark chocolate espresso.  And there’s even a little tasting bar if you aren’t sure which one you’d like the best. They also have hot cocoa mix and other fun gift options!

The Whetstone Chocolate Tasting Tour was definitely a decadently delicious experience! If you aren’t heading to St. Augustine any time soon, don’t worry.  You can shop online and they will ship directly to you! If you are heading to St. Augustine, make sure to stay at the TRYP by Wyndham.

    I have never been to St. Augustine but it definitely not my list of places to visit. We have several candy tours here locally to us in KY and have done all of them! We love how much we learn and of course we get to sample too. It is a fun educational tour every time.

    I love chocolate factory tours, its so amazing to watch the full process. From bean to Name brand bars you buy in the store, its so fascinating. And the smells, free samples, and pretending that workers are oompa Loompas just adds to the fun. This chocolate tasting tour sounds like a great trip to make

    Very interesting post! I really like to watch how they produce chocolates – it’s beautiful process 🙂 And Florida is on my travel “to do list” as well. Maybe I’d take my Daughter for the tour like this, but as far as she’s infant I don’t give any sweets 🙂
    Btw. When you hit to Europe, I highly recommend you to go to Belgium and Ukraine. Belgian chocolate is famous all around the world not without a reason. And in Lviv (Ukraine) there’s great manufacture 🙂

    I will always say yes to a chocolate tasting tour! LOL! My kids would love to see how these chocolate treats are made. They’d just be in heaven and my eight-year-old is always so curious about how things work.
