Bloggers, Brands And Business

The more we delve into this blogging world.  The more we learn about the people behind the computer screens.  Many build successful businesses around their popular blogs.  They have a voice.  They have readers.  They have influence.  They promote themselves, their interests, things they care about and brands.  They create.  They create products.  They create interest.  They create buzz. They have a way of getting up close and personal with products and brands and other people. Many have excellent ideas of how to promote … [Read more...]

Visit To Children’s Home & Community Center ~ Cancun, Mexico

Several weeks ago I went on a business trip with my husband Todd to Cancun, Mexico.  We flew in a day early, along with a team of people from the publishing company he works for to visit a squatter village and giveaway books to the children who live there. ***** The day after arriving in our hotel and getting settled, we loaded up in vans and headed through Cancun and then to the outskirts of Cancun to the area where squatter villages have sprung up.  We traveled down a bumpy dusty road that eventually lead to the … [Read more...]

LoveFeast “Takes Flight” Bags & GiveAway

Over the past week I've gotten a lot of IRL (In Real Life) time with some of my blogging friends.  One of the things I like about blogging is the community it builds as well as the friendships it launches. Meeting for coffee or lunch is a welcome break from solo time behind the computer.  Sometimes you just have to reach out and do lunch IRL style.  And, I have been doing just that lately. (Anna from Motherly Law, Jennifer ~ Grow With Graces, Kate ~ Kate In The Kitchen, Elle ~ All Things Bright & Beautiful, … [Read more...]

Redecorate Our Bedroom

We then moved onto our bedroom!  In our last house, I think we painted every room in the house but our bedroom.  It was looking like this was going to be the case this time too.  But, when we decided to get the carpet put in our room to help insulate (our bedroom is over our garage), we mustered up the strength to throw one more room in the mix of our whole house remodel! I've had the paint for some time.  I knew I wanted to do a candlelight faux finish.  This painting technique calls for a coat of paint first.  Then a top … [Read more...]
