Today I am sharing how I get a fresh start each morning as part of a sponsored post by NESTLE Coffee-mate. All opinions are my own. 

Mornings haven’t always been my thing. There are still some days I wake up and think, “not today”, I am not a morning person. However, the last year or so I have discovered that with each morning and each start to the day, good things can come. Ensuring a fresh start daily is important.

Father’s Day is just around the corner. I show the dads in my life unconditional love year-round, however I still like to give them something personal on Father’s Day. Something with a special meaning behind it. Sometimes it is difficult to come up with the right gift, but when it comes to my dad, anything car related is a win.

One week into summer break and whoa. I can’t believe that I forgot how different it is with three kids home all day, every day. With Ethan accustomed to busy school days, I can tell I have my work cut out for me the next few months. Lots of planning, fun activities, and being on-to-go.

I am having a hard time dealing with the fact that this is the last week of school. I feel like Ethan just started Kindergarten a couple weeks ago and now he is going to be a first grader. Instead of being sad about how fast time goes by and how quickly the kids are growing up, I have spent the last two weeks getting pumped for summer.

As I embrace the holiday season, my list of things to do is continuously and uncontrollably growing. Shopping lists, scheduling events, party planning, and gift making are at the top of the list. Gift giving also involves photo gifts and holiday pictures.

Family dinners at the dinner table are important to me. Growing up, my parents always tried to make sure we all made time to sit down and enjoy a meal together. It allowed use time to chat and be together in one place, no matter how busy we were. Now with three kids and a husband, I try to do the same thing.
