Have you ever thought of taking a class to learn something new or to just freshen up on something you’re passionate about? Well, I recently took a flower arrangement class and absolutely LOVED it. I learned about the class “Art of Floral Design” on the Verlocal site.
I love making cocktails-it’s one of my favorite things to do if I’m hosting. Today I am collaborating with One Hope Wine and bringing you one of my favorite cocktails for Memorial Day shenanigans. When I have friends over, French 75 is a quick go to! It’s nice and easy plus who doesn’t […]

I felt so great and couldn’t stop smiling…:) As someone who had a very urban upbringing, I know how difficult it can sometimes be to find a green space for families.

They are a social‐good company that believes in providing a healthy, unprocessed, protein rich food source to children in need. Farm to Kids is passionate about positively impacting the way children consume food. For every pound […]
We often forget that there are many people less fortunate than us. This isn’t something you need to feel guilty about – it’s in human nature to allow our minds to be preoccupied with everyday troubles like our jobs, home chores and our social life. However, some global issues can’t wait for us to have […]
