Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. This is the chant that we were all taught as kids. Let’s be real: the only one of these most of us are doing consistently is the recycle and friends, that isn’t enough. Now I’m not saying that recycling isn’t great–it is. What I’m saying is we all need to do a better job to reduce waste.
I have a love-hate relationship with travel. I love to go different places and experience new things. Seeing different cities and the cultures within those different cities is my favorite. But traveling while plus size is NOT my favorite and I didn’t realize it affected me until I was having a conversation with my friend Ari.
Today is the grand opening of Candytopia and last night my friends and I had the opportunity to check it out. Friends. It’s amazing. I’m going to give you the rundown without you feeling like you’ve heard enough you shouldn’t go but enough information that you know you need to experience it for yourself. Candytopia Atlanta was all the sweet fun that I needed for a girls night out and then some.
I have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. If I’m being honest, I can count on one hand how many Valentine’s Days I’ve really, truly enjoyed with a significant other. And when you have young kids, celebrating Valentine’s Day gets even more tricky. As women, many of us want to be wined and dined and spoiled with things seen on movies.
When we made the decision to homeschool the kids, it wasn’t a light one. I was never the mom that had dreamt of homeschooling their children since I was a child. I was really hesitant to pull my kids out of school when we were preparing to move but after some issues with racism and a lack of challenge in her class, I decided it was what was best for us. Now a couple years later, I’m discovering that I had quite a few misconceptions about homeschooling.
