Clear the Shelters Day

Adopting an animal and providing it with a loving forever home is one of the best things you can do to make a difference in an animal’s life.  So when Hill’s Pet Nutrition asked me to partner with them to help spread the word about Clear the Shelters Day on Saturday, August 18th, I was thrilled!

I knew this would be my opportunity to help make a difference and spread the word about such an important day…a day that will make a significant impact on the lives of so many deserving animals.  I’m sharing more about how you can get involved as well as some of your personal pet adoption stories!

Natchez Glen House Dahlia Flower Garden

Nestled right outside of Franklin, TN you will find the most beautiful dahlia flower garden…Natchez Glen House!  I recently spent time at this beautiful garden and it was such a wonderful experience.  Surrounded by over 5,000 dahlia’s, I found myself feeling overwhelmed by the beauty and magic of this special place.  It’s as if I discovered a hidden treasure…one that I don’t want to keep hidden because I want so many others to be able to experience the magic too!


Beautycounter has been on my radar for a couple of years!  I tried it for the first time about 2 years ago but for whatever reason, did not stick with it.  More recently, there has been even more buzz about Beautycounter so I decided to try it again and I’ve got to say that I’m so glad that I did!  I’m sharing a bit more about my decision to add Beautycounter into my daily routine and which products are my favorite.
