"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." - Quote source :: Kind Over Matter
Hello! I am the mother of four small children, 2 boys and 2 girls...and I love being a mom!!! Before I stayed at home full-time, I taught school for five years. Besides being a certified elementary teacher, I have my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I am passionate about parenting and teaching!
Hello, fellow moms and bloggers!! I am so excited to host my first giveaway!!! I hope you will follow my blog and enter to win a beauty pack from Mary Kay cosmetics!
I am literally counting the minutes until our annual summer vacay to New Buffalo, Michigan...we leave on Saturday, May 29th. YEA!!!
Here's a little background on the annual trip:
We go every year and stay in the beautiful "Harbor House" lake house (located on Lake Michigan!!). What makes this trip doubly delightful is the time we get to spend with my family, whom we only get to see a few times a year. You see, they live in Chicago, and we live in a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. My mother, father, brother, sister, and two nieces all meet me, my hubby, and four children in New Buffalo for the entire week of Memorial Day. We stay together in that awesome lake house (described above), cooking meals, vegging out, and just spending some much-needed extended time together. I am getting chills just thinking about it!!
Anyway...in celebration of our upcoming vacay and summer in general, I would like to give away a brand-new Mary Kay beauty pack (pictured below).
Here's what is in it: one 4 oz. bottle of SPF 30 sunscreen; one 3 oz. bottle of TimeWise age-fighting moisturizer; one tube of natural lip gloss; and one Modern Romance make-up bag in which to carry your beauty products!!!
