The Instagram Reel That’s Giving Me All The Feels

With all the crazy and unexpected in the world right now, I love a good warm and fuzzy image.

And this Instagram post by Sela Ward is just what I needed. I hope this is the mental break you need!


Monday Mood Board

Monday Mood Board

So if you’ve been following me you’ve probably seen that over the last couple of weeks I’ve been posting mood boards.

Mood boards are a valuable tool to help you (and me) reach goals.

I’ve been using them off and on (for more than I want to tell you) but approximately 20 years.

Especially when working with women and children either in transition, starting over after an abusive relationship or even to help trauma survivors express themselves while in recovery.

Mood boards can help you identify your goals even if you don’t yet have a direction.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s for your health, your home, your love life or your new business, mood boards can help you get to know yourself better and what matters most to you even if only for the moment.

I used one to help me with my new logo. Maybe I’ll show that one next week.

For today. here’s a quick mood board I put together this morning.

I know…I’m a little late but as they say… Better late than never! 😉

Balance. Health. Love.

The “it” bag

The “it” bag

Summer means outdoor gatherings, picnics and trips to the lake or beach. But it doesn’t matter whether you’re taking a road trip or taking a trip to the store (although, one is funner than the other), you’re gonna want to add my favorite bag to your collection. 😉

I used this bag to carry lunch for me and my husband while going through chemo.

It kept the food nice and cool and we made a picnic right there in the chemo suite.

The bag

PackIt freezable lunch and shopping bags are stylish, reusable and BPA free. Also, you can leave those bulky ice packs behind, because the WHOLE BAG goes in the freezer. (Say whaattt?)

That’s right. You fold the bag up, put in the freezer and when you need it, it’s ready to go.

PackIt’s patented built-in technology keeps items cool all day without ever needing ice packs. It’s so powerful that it can even drop the temperature of liquids 25 degrees within the first hour. —PackIt website

Now let’s take a closer look at those bags through the PackItCool Instagram page.

The also have grocery bags.


And Bento boxes, too!


It’s perfect for the men in your life, too. I bought my dad one and he loves it. This is mine but my dad has a solid black one.

Did I mention the wine bags?


I typically order them directly from PackIt online but I noticed you can now buy them at Home Depot Amazon and Target.
