Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. From apple picking to walks on a chilly morning, the season really brings me joy.

I am a gal of routine, but sometimes it is just time for a change. I like to make goals throughout the year and those goals can only be reached if new routines are created. With my most recent goal, I had to make the decision to change just about everything I do in the mornings; including less coffee and more water, with the help of drink mixes.

Effortless Meals from Walmart for Busy Weeknights

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.

Potty training is a journey that marks a huge milestone for toddlers and parents. As a mother of three, ages 5 and under, one would think potty training should be breeze.
