Tying up some loose ends and taking some family time + Balance Bar Giveaway

I have to be honest with you…

I’ve lost my drive, I’ve had other things take priority, and I’ve been missing out on real moments with my little ones…

I’m so in love with this little space to share, meet wonderful people, learn and experience new things that are great for our family, and let my creativity out. But I have to tell ya, it’s a lot of work. It’s even more work to learn to do it right. I’ve been devoting so much of my time and energy to this blog, the social channels to go with it, and trying to figure out how I can do it just right that all my passion and efforts start to pay off…

Well…. Right now, that’s not happening… I’ve been devoting more time to my hourly work-from-home gig and trying to be more present with my kiddos.


I’m on vacation and I read two books this week.

This. is. huge.

I used to read all the time and kids got in the way, but mostly, every waking moment was spent on my ipad writing blog posts, editing pictures, keeping up with social channels, etc. This week, I’ve done work solely from my bulky computer, kept the Instagram posts to a minimum, and picked up a book each night instead of my ipad.

It feels amazing.

How many of you bloggers can relate to feeling torn between loving sharing and community, and feeling like you would be happier without the self-imposed stress of blogging?

'Tis the gift to be simple

Well, this break has been fantastic! I’ve swam with my kiddos, I’ve watched them play without them having to lift my eyes from a screen, we’ve eaten meals  without Mom stopping to take a picture, and I’ve gotten more sleep than I’ve had in a long time. I’m not sure how this makes me feel…


Before I decide the fate of this blog, I have a couple obligations to fulfill and I have some more vacation time and a little while longer to think on this. Some of the things I would miss the most about leaving the blogging world would be the amazing opportunities it gives you to learn and share about my favorite companies.

As a Moms Meet Blogger, I’ve gotten to review some great products for the healthy and green family I hope to raise and before we left for vacation, I got a fantastic package from Frosche. Being the crazy time that it was, I had to leave the review to my husband because I forgot to take the products with us. I also have the opportunity to share a fantastic fall giveaway with you as a Balance Bar Insider. Therefore, I’m going to combine the two and share my fantastic news that I am now a Momentum Ambassador!

Do you see why it is so hard for me to give up all this fun!?

So, without further ado a Balance Bar giveaway with some yummy peanut butter bites that I tried for the first time, my fave chocolate mint, and cookie dough. Yum!  You’ll have to wait until tomorrow for what I’m sure will be a thrilling review from a husband about dish soap.

As the days get shorter & colder, it can be easy to crave indulgent comfort foods. With Balance Bar, you can still indulge in decadent flavors like cookie dough and chocolate mint, but also have the balanced nutrition your body needs to stay energized and satisfied.
