Shortly after my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes last year, I had an overwhelming need to advocate for Type 1 Diabetes and DKA awareness. There is a large amount of misconceptions and misdiagnoses and that needs to change. I soon found Beyond Type 1 online and have since emerged myself in their campaigns, becoming an active ambassador while advocating locally and online.

When life is hectic and I am all over the place, one thing I tend to overlook is eating meals myself at typical meal times. I know I am not the only one. So why can’t we make time for a quick meal in the midst of the chaos around us?

Making Time for Breakfast... When You Have No Time

You probably saw on my social media accounts that we took the kids on a mini vacation to Memphis, TN a few weeks ago. There was so much to do and see, it was hard to decide what to make time for. I will be sharing details on everything we did within a week or two. The first full day we were there, we were invited to Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill. While our visit to Uncle Buck’s was complimentary, all opinions are 100% my own.

Making time for myself has always been a challenge for me. There were times my husband would literally have schedule something for me to do by myself, push me out the door and tell me not to come back for a few hours. It got that bad at one point.

Tips for Enjoying 'Me-Time' on a Hot Summer Day

Breakfast has always been my favorite meal. Yes, there are many busy days where I rush around trying to get out the door, ultimately forgetting to eat in the morning. However, I often regret it as it’s not just an important meal of the day, it’s also a great time to bond with loved ones. I am sharing a fun kraft paper table runner idea, perfect for those breakfast moments as a sponsored post for Cheerios. All opinions are my own.

Summer picnics are a refreshing way to cool down in the middle of a busy day or to add excitement on an ordinary day. This chicken salad recipe is a great make-ahead dish, which is exceptional for easy-prep picnic chicken salad wraps.
