There are moments that you will treasure forever.
Yesterday I had one of those moments.
I caught a glimpse of Sydney walking into Riley's room while she was reading.
She quietly climbed up into her bed and joined her sister.
Riley simply put her arm around her and gave her a sweet smile.
Sydney rested her head on Riley's arm.
I watched in silence.
I am so thankful they have one another.
They are close and loving towards one another.
My sweet girls.
Their wonderful spirit.
So thankful for that and so much more!

Gutsy Chewy Feature and Review!

Disclaimer - I received this product from the sponsor of the Moms Meet program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the May Media Group LLC.
I was pretty excited to have a chance to check out Gutsy Chewy!  Have you heard of it?  If you've ever suffered from the Queasy, Uneasy, Refluxy Feeling® associated with common digestive discomforts then listen up! There may be an easy solution—Gutsy Chewy. These supplements were invented by gastroenterologist and dentist, Dr. Doug Haghighi, and contain the perfect balance of apple cider vinegar, licorice extract, papaya extract and xylitol to help support your gut and oral health along with calcium and magnesium. Gutsy Chewy supplements are all-natural, free of gluten and lactose, vegan friendly and made in the U.S.A., making them a safe choice!  Available in Wildberry and Citrus, these are fast acting little tablets for that "Queasy, Uneasy, Refluxy Feeling."
It just so happens I got a little tummy trouble after some overindulging after Easter.  I tried the citrus and was pleasantly surprised with the taste and how well they worked.  They are a little bigger than the size of a nickel and are chewable.  They were easy to take in my opinion.  Best of all, my stomach discomfort disappeared and I was back to my jelly bean popping self!  Well, maybe not exactly, as I've vowed to start eating healthier but my tummy troubles were gone!  I would recommend these supplements for anybody who is looking for a solution to stomach discomfort and that queasy feeling.  I am so happy that there is an all natural, vegan friendly option on the market!  Finally!  Check out their line of products here!

Super Easy VERY Berry Smoothies for Spring!

This time of year we always start craving the tastes of Summer.  The girls are ready to get outside and enjoy some warmth, especially after the longer-than-normal Winter!  That's where these delicious fruit smoothies come in!  The perfect blend of delicious berries and almond milk!  This is one breakfast and snack my kids keep coming back for over and over again!  With school vacation upon us, I am ready to serve this up for friends and family by the pitcher! 
2 cups mixed berries (I used frozen organic blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and raspberries from Trader Joes)
2 cups almond milk (coconut, rice or any variety would work)
1 whole banana

Pour milk into the blender and add your banana.  Blend until smooth (I find this first step makes the flavors even better!)
Add your berries one cup at a time and blend until smooth. 
Pour in glasses and enjoy! 
Seriously, it doesn't get much easier than this!  Some people enjoy a little sweeter taste and for that I would recommend adding a couple tablespoons of honey or maple syrup.  The possibilities are endless!

Hope you are off to a fantastic Monday!  I'm ready to have a great week and start eating better!

Zarbee's Natural's Seasonal Relief Project

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Zarbee’s Naturals. I received a promotional item and a product sample as a thank you for participating.

I hope you've had a wonderful week!  We were so pleased to welcome temps in the mid 70's this past Monday!  It was a sweet gift...and while the rest of the week has quickly proven that we are most definitely still in New England, we are happy to see signs of Spring popping up all over the place.  Of course, with Spring brings lots of blooming and since our Winter lasted longer than usual, everything seems to be blooming all at once!  I have been feeling a little more "clogged" lately and realize that's a sure sign that Spring is upon us!  My oldest has started to feel the affects as well...something that we dealt with last year for the first time.  Nobody likes to have extra congestion, especially when Spring means more time outside enjoying all the things they love so much! 

That's where Zarbee's Naturals' Seasonal Relief comes in!  It's a great option for those who suffer from seasonal congestion.  It allows you to maintain your active lifestyle by promoting easy breathing and supporting your respiratory health.  After our long Winter, it's time to get outside and take full advantage of nature and the outdoors!  Zarbees' Naturals' Seasonal Relief is here to help!  Zarbee’s Naturals is made with natural Butterbur to help combat congestion.  I'm happy to inform you that Zarbee's Naturals' Seasonal Relief has recently launched their Seasonal Relief Project.   Every time someone visits the Seasonal Relief Project website to share how Zarbee’s Naturals’ Seasonal Relief with Butterbur worked for them, the brand is donating to four causes that support exposure to and the protection of fresh air, including Fresh Air Fund, Children and Nature Network, and Moms Clean Air Force, and Healthy Child Healthy World.  Not only is it a wonderful cause, it's also a great resource for those who suffer from this time of year!  You can receive your own customized seasonal congestion tips as well as sign up for a product sample! (Please keep in mind these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.)

Zarbee’s Naturals’ Seasonal Relief is available over the counter at CVS and Target and is intended for children 12 years of age and over.

Happy Spring Friends :) Have a great weekend!
