Who do you think you are? #BehindTheBlogger

So, you've been reading my posts for a while now, or maybe you're a new reader...Perhaps you knew me in school or worked with me? Either way, I'm happy that you've decided to pay my blog a visit. 
Do you really know anything about the real me?
Do you? 
Would you like to know a little more?

Do you know that I'm a mommy of a boy and a girl? I have my pair and although being a mommy can be tough, but it's also very rewarding.
I became a mommy for the first time in my early twenties to my son and then a mommy to another child right when I hit thirty. Being pregnant was amazing and also scary at times. 

My life mainly revolves around fine arts.
I'm also a writer. Always have been. It's my passion. I LOVE to write. I remember as a child, I use to write in one journal after another about anything and everything. I wrote about my life, what I wanted to be, what was going on, my hopes, my dreams, my fears.
I wrote stories, I wrote poetry.
As I grew older, I started submitting my writing and entered contests. I had some published, others disappeared into oblivion, never to be seen again.
I started a book years ago, but never found the time nor the motivation to finish until I met the man of my dreams, who, guess what-- was also very passionate about writing and actually had his own book published. Together, him and I wrote our first book together. It was actually a continuation and an improvement of the book that I had already started.
Now was the book the best? No, but it was a start. After writing that book and having it published on Amazon for the Kindle, it has given me the drive to write another book in the new future. A better one at that.
I'm also a very avid reader. I've read so many books that I've lost count. I really enjoy reading horror, paranormal, comedy, and romance novels.

I love music. I played the violin in orchestra and sang in the choir in elementary school, I was in band playing the flute in middle school, and continued on the flute in the marching band in high school. To this day I can still play the flute and also a little bit of keyboard. Luckily, my husband and son love music just as much as I do, and occasionally we'll try and play some music together.

I used to love to act. I actually thought one day I'd become an actress on T.V.  I was in plays for a few years and thought maybe I should continue to act in college. However, I was more drawn to Psychology and majored in that. Sometimes I still wish I had continued with the acting instead.

These days, not only do I homeschool my son, nurse my new baby, sleep in tiny spurts, and try to squeeze in a shower and meals in my spare time, I also blog for quite a few different companies and test out and review quite a few products every week.

Other than that,
I believe anything is possible. I believe in love at first sight, everything happens for a reason, the possibility of reincarnation, ghosts, angels, aliens...
I'm a bit eccentric and I'm extremely open minded.

I'm only thirty years old today, but I have been through a lot. I've been hurt, I've loved, I've shed tears, I've lost, I've learned. I've experienced. I think that everything I've been through has only made me a tougher person and has helped me grow.
I think that I still have a lot to learn though.

Now that I've told you a bit about myself, tell me, who do you think YOU are?

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new. Now, to get to the new, and past the terrible process of moving, here are my packing hacks. Label everything! Unless you’
